The organiser of Rapid.Tech has announced that this year’s international trade show and conference for Additive Manufacturing will include a trade forum focused on additive contract manufacturing. Rapid.Tech takes place June, 14–16, 2016 in Erfurt, Germany and the new trade forum will be held on June 16th.
“Whether we’re talking about prototyping, tooling or series manufacturing, more and more sectors and businesses are harnessing the huge potential of AM to manufacture products more quickly, with greater individualisation, at lower cost and with improved resource efficiency,” stated Dr Eric Klemp, Managing Director of voestalpine Additive Manufacturing Center and programme coordinator of the new trade forum.
“The increased use of AM processes is resulting in higher demand for and more stringent requirements on contract manufacturers. Rapid.Tech’s new trade forum provides a valuable opportunity both for newcomers and for experts in the technologies to exchange information and experiences,” added Klemp.
‘Additive Contract Manufacturing’ is one of four new trade forums at the event. Also new to this year’s Rapid.Tech are the trade forums ‘3D Metal Printing’, ‘Electronic Engineering’ and ‘Automotive Industry’.
In addition to the well-established areas of Design, Tools, Aviation, Medical Technology, Dental Technology and Science and the User’s Conferences, the new trade forums will provide opportunities for discussion on specific AM topics. All Rapid.Tech conference presentations will be simultaneously translated (German-English).
