“The high number of registrations at Formnext underlines the importance of additive manufacturing for the entire industry,” said Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President of Formnext, an event organized by Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. “AM is indeed a technology that allows us to face current challenges, to discover and exploit new opportunities from an economic point of view. At the same time Formnext reflects the dynamics of the global AM industry, which every year paves the way for the industrial future with numerous innovations and applications.”

For example, what had previously been the Start-Up Challenge has been transformed into the Formnext Awards, which will present awards in six different categories, including innovative young companies, sustainable business ideas and pioneering technologies.

Formnext 2024 will also host a series of talks and presentations on three stages, each of which will focus on a different verticals: Application, Industry and Technology. Event organizers are giving us a little peak of what will be discussed in November on the stages, including AI in additive manufacturing, medical and dental technologies, robotics and automation and more. Other notable features of the upcoming event include a “Dienstleiter Marketplace” (services marketplace) that will be focused on medical, dental and packaging industries; the Pitchnext event; a Career Day where job seekers can learn about career opportunities; and Discover 3D Printing seminars.

The German Machinery and Equipment Manufacturers Association (VDMA) will also host the BE-AM special exhibition, which will highlight AM applications in the field of mechanical engineering. This exhibition will showcase the progress made in construction 3D printing and feature a symposium on the topic. As in previous years, Formnext 2024 has a partner country. This year it will be Australia, which is home to many innovative AM companies, research centers and service providers.
