Denmark and Nordics appointed core partner countries for Formnext 2023

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

The list of previous partner countries includes strong Additive Manufacturing (AM) countries such as the US, China, Italy and, last year, France, but in 2023, the world’s largest AM fair will focus on Danish 3D printing and the strong Danish competencies within new manufacturing technologies to promote more sustainable manufacturing in the frame of the partner country concept.

Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany, is the world’s largest fair on Additive Manufacturing with 800 companies exhibiting the latest technology and attracting upwards of 30,000 visitors – it’s the place to go, in other words, if you want to experience the latest and greatest in AM and industrial 3D printing.

This year, there’s even more reason to visit the fair, as Formnext has chosen the Nordics as its partner region in 2023, with Denmark and Danish AM Hub as the leading partner accompanied by Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Petra Haarburger, President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt, said: “In recent years, we’ve seen a development and tendency towards more and more sustainability, especially among larger manufacturing companies. It’s a broader perspective that we see many benefits in focusing on and creating more awareness of the possibilities of 3D printing technology – and this is where the Nordics and Denmark, in particular, is a few years ahead of the potential for more sustainable use”.

Danish AM Hub is currently working to expand AM in Denmark and raise awareness of Danish competencies in the promotion of more sustainable manufacturing using AM technology, where manufacturing is done with less waste, less material, less transportation, and fewer CO2 emissions. The Danish AM Hub is initiated and supported by the Danish Industry Foundation.

Frank Rosengreen Lorenzen, CEO of Danish AM Hub, is therefore particularly proud – and humbled – to see Formnext’s 2023 focus, especially on Denmark and the strong Danish small- and medium-sized companies designing, developing, and manufacturing more sustainably with the use of AM technology.

Frank Rosengreen Lorenzen said “It’s a huge recognition of the skilled and innovative Danish owner-managers, designers, engineers and manufacturers who are continually challenging and expanding the scope of AM technology to design, develop and manufacture the products of the future. It’s quite simply the greatest honor and recognition we can achieve, and it’s due to the fact that we’ve spent the last three years at Danish AM Hub focusing on how to make Denmark the most knowledgeable place in the world when it comes to the use of AM for more sustainable manufacturing.”

One of the decisive arguments for choosing Denmark as a leading partner in 2023 is that the Danish AM Hub and its partners and members have developed a CO2 calculator that visualizes the difference between AM manufacturing and traditional manufacturing methods, creating groundbreaking new knowledge and documentation of the potential of AM technology as a tool for more sustainable manufacturing.

These efforts are also the focal point at Formnext 2023, where the Danish contribution will make up an important part of a special Nordic pavilion – as well as the partner region edition of the Formnext magazine featuring Danish companies’ inspiring use of AM technology for more sustainable manufacturing. Danish AM Hub will also host a longer session on the Industry stage, where major Danish manufacturers and Danish AM Hub will debate the Danish industrial approach to sustainability for the international attendants.

Formnext takes place on 7-10 November, but on September 21, Danish AM Hub also arranges Scandinavia’s largest AM conference in Copenhagen: AM Summit 2023 – with the participation of over 50 speakers, 50 exhibitors of AM technology and 500 participants – which this year will also be characterized by, that Denmark has now come to the top of the international agenda when it comes to creating a more sustainable production with new production technology such as AM.
