ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing brought the latest activities and know-how of the RWTH Aachen Campus and its research partners to Formnext 2019, the leading trade show in Additive Manufacturing.

ACAM booth conversations at Formnext 2019
ACAM’s exhibition focused on its holistic approach to AM implementation. Multinational visitors were able to see the R&D breakthroughs of the RWTH Aachen Campus, while learning more about possibilities to integrate Additive Manufacturing to their industrial activities. For this, in a single booth visitors could find concepts and innovative applications ranging from design to post-processing of AM components. Some of the applications brought by ACAM to the exposition covered technologies such as EHLA, LPBF, EBM, Material Jetting, Binder Jetting, as well as hybrid manufacturing and post-processing. AM software was also an important part of the exhibit, covering cost analysis based on process simulation as well as LPBF process monitoring solutions. At the booth, visitors could also experience the Knowledge Area in Additive Manufacturing, a platform with AM relevant information curated under the expertise of the campus’ AM professionals.

Apart from its role as an exhibitor, ACAM carried out several other activities at the trade show.

ACAM at Discover3Dprinting

The Discover3Dprinting seminars were held every morning on all fair days at the AM4U Area. Participants were able to gain a deeper understanding of the opportunities, challenges, and best practices related to Additive Manufacturing while also discussing specific questions with the ACAM specialists. This year the seminar series reached 1.086 participants since 2017, the year it started.

5-year Formnext Family Award

Formnext honored us with its 5-year Family Award. It is our privilege to be a part of this family since it started. Formnext is for us more than a trade show. Even though it became even larger this year with 852 exhibitors and 34,532 visitors in 4 halls, it did not lose its friendly and cooperative environment, which enables productive technical discussions and knowledge sharing.

Thank you Formnext for trusting us as your content partner for Additive Manufacturing.

It was a pleasant journey and we are looking forward to continue innovating with you in the upcoming years.
