Formnext Exhibition services

Formnext will be held 13 to 16 Nov 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany.
Formnext is the leading international exhibition and conference on additive technologies and tool making that features Numerous World Premieres. At this exhibition, you will see the enormous potential that arises from combining additive technologies and conventional manufacturing methods. Formnext brings together the world's leading manufacturers in additive manufacturing technologies and tool making. It also provides a showcasing platform for numerous exhibitors from sectors such as materials, mechanical engineering, metrology, prototyping, further processing, and accessories. International exhibitors use formnext to present their products to a global audience. By experiencing the interplay of innovations across the process chain, you will gain valuable information and contacts that you can use to further develop your production methods, further reduce your time to market, and become more competitive using state-of-the-art technology. Formnext is an event and I like events...
