Formnext has continued to show its best side in 2018. At the beginning of September, 10 weeks before the exhibition opens its doors, the two levels of Exhibition Hall 3 with 550 expected exhibitors and an exhibition space of 36,000 square metres were full to capacity.

The exhibition for additive manufacturing and cutting-edge production techniques has recorded significant growth in terms of number of exhibitors and exhibition space. In addition, Formnext is using the space next to Hall 3 for supporting events.

Formnext 2018 will cover a wide range of topics along the relevant process chains, and key areas such as software, material, and pre and post-processing (for example, for powder removal, surface finishing or heat treatment) will also receive increased attention. Among the 550 expected exhibitors, a total of 165 are new exhibitors from 26 nations – in other words, businesses and organisations exhibiting at Formnext for the first time.

On 14 November 2018, the international nature of Formnext will be underlined by the standards summit, “AM Standards Forum”, which is being organised by Formnext in co-operation with the U.S. Commercial Service, along with German and American partners. This summit is open to all interested parties. The latest developments for additive manufacturing standards will be presented at the summit and discussed with respect to special areas of industry. TCT, Formnext’s content partner, is also organising a further high-quality conference programme that will bring the AM industry’s leading minds together with industrial users during the exhibition.

With young talent being of particular interest to the industry, Formnext will once again be showcasing the Start-up Challenge. The 2018 winners will be honoured at Formnext and appear in an area bearing the same name. The international competition for design – the Purmundus Challenge – will also be organised at Formnext 2018 following the theme “Preparing for the Future with 3D Printing” and will recognise creative companies.

The advantages that can be gained through additive manufacturing in industry and mechanical engineering will be showcased by the Ready-4-industry user case area. This is being held by Formnext’s honorary sponsor – the Working Group Additive Manufacturing, part of the German industry association, VDMA.
