The seminars Discover3Dprinting are designed for everyone who considers to include the Additive Manufacturing into the production process, but does struggle to find access to the technologies. The seminar provides a comprehensive insight into AM and at the same time discusses practical questions, such as: should I consider 3D printing for my production? Can I make profit with it? What are the first/next steps to get started?
In addition, participants will learn what and where the obstacles by its implementation are as well as what applications are not profitable for industrial 3D printing. Furthermore, attendees will also develop an understanding of where additive technologies can complement conventional processes, e.g. how process chains can be established with pre-machining and post-processing.
The seminars Discover3Dprinting will be held at Formnext during all fair days (plus optional individual consultation afterwards) on the AM4U area. It will be conducted in German (Tuesday, 19 and Thursday, 21 November 2019) and in English language (Wednesday, 20 and Friday, 22 November 2019). Afterwards, you will be able to deepen specific questions with the experts from ACAM, as well as to discuss further topics with the corresponding exhibitors at your fair tour.
The presentations will be made accessible to all registered participants who attended the seminar.
As companies from all sectors keep searching for breakthrough innovations, the implementation of Additive Manufacturing could come into question for them. Therefore Formnext and ACAM will offer the Discover3Dprinting seminars at other events, with the aim to demonstrate the latest developments, to discuss concrete approaches and new ideas related to the relevant industries.

Kristian Arntz studied mechanical engineering and materials technology at the Technical University RWTH Aachen majoring in production technology. In his PhD thesis he developed a process model for “Multi axis hard milling of tempered high speed steel”. He worked as scientist in the Process Technology Department at the Fraunhofer IPT from 2003 to 2009, concentrating on HSC-, micro- and hard milling technology for tool and die making. In 2005 he became head of the business unit “tool and die making” offering research and consulting for companies in that area which today is one of the most recognized institutions for mold and die making research in Europe. Since April 2009, Mr. Arntz has been chief engineer of the department “laser machining” at the Fraunhofer IPT which develops and qualifies efficient manufacturing processes to use laser beam technologies in industrial value chains.
He is Technical Director and Associate of WBA Aachener Werkzeugbau Akademie, founded in 2010. This company offers consulting, services and education for tool and die making.
Since 2015 Dr. Arntz is Managing Director of ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing GmbH. ACAM offers Research and Development, Services and further education all around Additive Manufacturing in an industrial partner network.
Max Steiner has studied engineering since 2009 at the RWTH and obtained in 2015 his master’s degree. During his studies Mr. Steiner was involved in several projects at the Jouhsen-Bündgens Maschinenbau GmbH and worked there on topics in the area of tool making, assembly and maintenance. Since 2015 Mr. Steiner is employed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Lasertechnology ILT in the area of Laser Metal Deposition.
Afternoon seminar: 12:30 – 14:30, English (simultaneous translation into German available)
