According to the organisers, Formnext ensures that there will be a dynamic exchange of ideas and experiences at the highest professional level.

Keynotes from representatives of global companies including Audi, EOS and Stratasys will share with attendees their experiences in these fields. Furthermore, around 30 additional speakers on the conference agenda will showcase the latest applications in automotive, aerospace, medical technology, consumer goods, architecture, jewellery and more, Mesago announced. The conference will also reveal the significant potential waiting to be harnessed in the combination of additive technologies and conventional processes such as tool and mould making.

The first day's keynote will be given by Dr. Hans Langer, founder and CEO of EOS, a leading manufacturer of 3D printing machines for metals and synthetic materials.

Another keynote will be given by David Reis, one of the most recognisable names in additive technologies. As CEO of the global market leader Stratasys, Reis not only helps guide the further advancement of these technologies, his strategic decisions also fundamentally influence the maturation of the entire industry.

Michael Breme, head of toolmaking at Audi, will use his own keynote to address the focus topic of Formnext 2015: The potential 3D-printed metal components offer in various applications in tool and mould making. In doing so, he will also take a look at the related business aspects and existing manufacturing processes.
