November 19 - November 22
For four days, Formnext 2018 served as a guiding light for modern production technology and additive manufacturing around the world. The Formnext 2018 exhibition set another record in terms of exhibitor numbers, with a total of 632 exhibitors from 32 countries. Visitors were able to discover solutions and inspirational ideas along the entire process chain that they could use to make their own production more efficient. Besides a wide range of forward-looking innovations, Formnext 2018 also showed how additive manufacturing and Industry 4.0 are increasingly merging to generate intelligent, automated production processes.
Formnext 2019 (19 – 22 November 2019) will be held in Halls 11 and 12 at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds for the first time. The USA has a long tradition in the area of additive manufacturing and is one of the most important exhibitor nations. The extremely active start-up scene there has produced a series of worldwide young companies that have enjoyed international success in recent years. “The USA is one of the world’s leading suppliers and users of additive manufacturing technology – a fact that we took into consideration when choosing our guest country,” states Sascha F. Wenzler. An extensive promotional program and various country specials, among other things, are in the pipeline.
