What to expect from Formnext, the big event dedicated to additive manufacturing

This year, as part of  “discover3Dprinting” series of seminars, Formnext will be offering information on additive technologies to beginners in the field.

Every day, from 14-17 November 2017, beginners will receive a two-hour presentation from CEOs, developers, decision-makers and other specialists on how they can use 3D printing in their activity and how it can be useful in their production processes.  

Targeted companies are especially small and midsize companies.

This series of seminars is organized in collaboration with the Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing (ACAM).

For Dr. Kristian Arntz, director of the centre, small and medium industrial companies need further information about this emerging technology. “Industrial 3D printing is breaking through in many sectors and applications, but firms often don’t know enough about the specialized uses, unit quantities, and areas in which these new methods really pay off,” he declares.

According to Christoph Stüker, project manager responsible for discover3Dprinting at formnext, succeeding in the additive manufacturing industry requires a different and more ‘additive’ mindset. In other terms, this implies for instance“…coming up with lighter designs, integrating functions, and opting for complete assemblies rather than individual functional components.”

On all four days of the exhibition, the discover3Dprinting seminar will take place right in the middle of the action in the am4u area (Hall 3.0, booth H50) from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. It will be held in both German (Tuesday and Thursday, 14/16 November) and English (Wednesday and Friday, 15/17 November).
