Rapid.Tech 2014, a trade fair and conference focussing on Additive Manufacturing, will take place in Erfurt, Germany, from May 14 – 15, 2014. The event will run in parallel with FabCon 3.D., a three day exhibition showcasing current developments and products for the consumer 3D printing sector.

Rapid.Tech 2014 will provide a meeting place for newcomers and experts, researchers and users to discuss the latest results, trends and opportunities for the Additive Manufacturing processes. The trade fair and user conference enable a comprehensive exchange of knowledge, covering both theory and practice.

This year’s “User conference – new technologies” will focus on the implementation of the latest developments in manufacturing processes, materials and software in real applications and business models in different branches. “The development of Additive Manufacturing is continuing at a fantastic pace and is constantly conquering new fields of application in quite diverse branches. Thanks to AM, branches that previously had nothing to do with each other are now merging. Anyone who does not keep his eye on the AM ball is quickly out of the game,” stated Antonius Köster, Managing Director of Antonius Köster GmbH, who is responsible for this year’s conference programme.

This will be illustrated by the first of four keynote speakers, Dr Olaf Rehme, whose presentation “The Future of 3D Printing at Siemens” will focus on the rapid development of Additive Manufacturing processes in recent years. Dr Rehme will examine the huge potential of AM for industry and will address the challenges for the necessary further development of these innovative technologies, as well as the need for standardisation to enable the integration of AM into industrial manufacturing.
