The Danish AM Hub has reported record attendance for its AM Summit 2022, with a 25% increase on the previous year resulting in the highest conference attendance to date at almost 450 participants. Visitors explored insights on the latest developments and innovations in Additive Manufacturing from forty-four speakers and forty-five exhibitors.

The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Additive Impact – Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing as a driver for sustainable manufacturing’. Under this theme, speakers took the stage with solutions and inspiration on how new technologies, like Additive Manufacturing, can help industry manufacture more sustainably and competitively – with stronger and more circular business models and more robust supply chains.

“We succeeded in addressing an important and current challenge by focusing on a more sustainable production, and, by extension, that of increased innovation and competitiveness among manufacturing companies. The growing interest and commitment from both Danish and international visitors demonstrate that Denmark has a leading role when it comes to new technologies,” stated Poul Skadhede, chairman of the board of the Danish AM Hub.

Danish AM Hub, initiated and supported by the Danish Industry Foundation, works to strengthen the Danish business community’s competitiveness by promoting the use of Additive Manufacturing. The organisation helps companies take the first steps towards a more sustainable production, with AM providing the opportunity for local on-demand production with less transport and less CO2 emissions.

“The fact that we once again set a record in terms of the number of visitors at AM Summit confirms what we experience on a daily basis: that the ecosystem and interest in the technology’s potential and possibilities grows every day, and that more and more people are becoming aware of the technology,” stated Frank Rosengreen Lorenzen, director, Danish AM Hub. “New technologies can change the way we design, develop, and produce, and 3D printing is a crucial technology to create positive development and contribute to a green transition across our production companies.”
