Formnext 2018: the international fair of additive manufacturing
We have just come back from Formnext, the fair entirely dedicated to additive manufacturing that brings together companies and visitors from all over the world.
It is always a unique experience even for those who, like Skorpion, have been working in the 3D printing world from many years.
Also this year the main theme of the event was METAL, companies like EOS and HP have launched their new proposals for the additive production of functional metal parts.
There are also a lot of proposals on plastic like the presentation of Stratasys of the new TPU material, extraordinary for many applications. http://replicatore.it/stratasys-svela-nuovi-dettagli-sulla-tecnologia-lpm-al-formnext/
On the HP stand, however, the finishes and applications of the technology are endless, from Drone structures to dental arches each market can exploit the enormous potential of Multi Jet Fusion technology. https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/hp-new-partnerships-formnext/
The trend towards the use of additive technologies for the production of definitive details and a high level of customization is confirmed by the presentation on the market of new technologies such as Carbon 3D https://www.carbon3d.com/
But in addition to the latest technology and materials, the focus of the fair was on software that helps us generate ever more complex forms with the aim of creating lighter objects with an ever-lower consumption of material.
Opening moments like these serve to anyone who wants to grow to understand trends and potentials of a market such as that of additive manufacturing in continuous growth.
