The successor to the 3D Printshow

The Additive Manufacturing Europe trade fair is the successor to the renowned 3D Printshow, of which the third and last edition was held in Paris on the 16 and 17 October last year. The organiser, the Tarsus group, has chosen to give the fair a new direction, and to regroup the London, Madrid and Berlin fairs on the same site in Amsterdam in Holland. This B2B trade fair of additive manufacturing principally targets the health sector and the automobile, aerospace and prototype industries. As it is held in Europe, the fair will propose a range of languages making it accessible for everyone.

A fair dedicated to additive manufacturing

From 28 to 30 June, professionals of additive manufacturing will be present at the RAI halls in Amsterdam. This technology has continued to expand enormously in 2016. Many projects have seen the light of day and professionals are investing significantly in research and development on all levels: software, 3D printing technologies and tools.
Additive printing is creating a veritable revolution for many manufacturing procedures. This is also the case for the automobile industry, where 3D printing has enabled the rapid realisation and testing of prototypes.
In the health sector, we have seen the advent of new prosthesis, which have already helped many patients, and recently 3D printing technology enabled ISS astronauts to remotely print an adjustable spanner that they lacked.
Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016 proposes a space consecrated to these fast-growing activities featuring the latest innovations. Unfortunately, the fair is only open to professionals.

The exhibitors

This major European fair will attract many big industry names such as BigRep, envisionTEC, Formlabs, Höganäs, SLM, Smit Röntgen (Philips), Ultimaker, Trumpf and UL. An important meeting and exchange place, the fair will be the occasion for many professionals to demonstrate their know-how. You will also find printing material suppliers, manufacturers of 3D printers, suppliers of solutions and software, together with examples of their achievements. A very good reason for engineers, designers and manufacturers to come and find inspiration!

Conferences and training

A conference will be dedicated, during the entire fair, to the latest trends and technologies. Here, industry experts will focus on the future challenges of additive manufacturing and review certain related practical case studies.

The UL company also proposes a succession of three workshops each day throughout the fair. The first one will be dedicated to the basic principles of additive manufacturing and the next to design strategies. The third and last daily workshop will concentrate on quality and security management. This will be a very good occasion to perfect your knowledge of additive manufacturing!!

The fair will also feature a product stage, which will be open to all registered visitors and exhibitors. Here, companies will have the opportunity to present their products and technologies as well as case studies. The stage will be a perfect place for visitors to exchange, reflect and pose all manner of questions.
