Formnext, on its way to promote additive manufacturing in construction

Formnext’s involvement as a sponsor of the Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing Symposium (BE-AM) launched by TU Darmstadt paves the way of its new mission.

The event brings together players from the construction industry and architecture on a regular basis and concerns itself extensively with the additive development in this sector.

Our aim is to promote additive activities in the construction industry, strengthening their structure and concentration”, says Professor Knaack, from the Institute for Structural Mechanics and Design, ISM+D. “We are also pleased that, through the collaboration with Formnext, we will gain even better contact with the other sectors of industry in which additive Page 2 formnext Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 13-16 November 2018 applications are already widely used. Because, overall, construction will become more efficient thanks to additive manufacturing. Companies that use this technology in construction will be able to benefit in economic terms“, according to Knaack.

However, it should be noted that in addition to the construction industry, other application industries related to 3D printed applications will also be highlighted, in order to enable participants to benefit from existing experiences of companies and other stakeholders.

This year, the topic will already be addressed in the AM4U area with a presentation to be held at 3:30 pm on November 14.
