From the construction industry to the automotive industry, mechanical engineering to medical technology and arts: Formnext 2023 will showcase an unparalleled variety of applications and solutions for different industries. “Every industrial company that wants to operate competitively, innovatively, and sustainably well into the future should be getting to grips with Additive Manufacturing,” says Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President Formnext, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.

Formnext is the annual highlight for the AM world, bringing a community that is enthusiastic about technology and innovation – the “fAMily” – together in Frankfurt for four eventful and inspiring trade show days. At Formnext 2023, the international elite of the AM industry will present numerous world premieres, so visitors can not only take a look at the latest technologies, but they can also discuss future production solutions. In addition, exhibitors will showcase solutions along the entire process chain – from design, production, and materials right through to postprocessing and quality assurance. “Only those who master the entire process with confidence can be successful with AM,” says Wenzler.
