In 2018, Formnext is continuing to show its best side: already 10 weeks before the exhibition opens its doors, the two levels of exhibition Hall 3 with 550 expected exhibitors and an exhibition space of 36,000 square meters is full to capacity. The leading exhibition for additive manufacturing and cutting-edge production techniques has recorded significant growth in terms of number of exhibitors and exhibition space. In addition, Formnext is using the space next to Hall 3 for supporting events. For instance, Saal Europa in Hall 4 is hosting the TCT Conference @ Formnext.
Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living today announced its new carbon fiber filled grade PA6/66 filament Novamid® ID1030 CF10 for 3D printing. Despite the low carbon fiber loading of 10% - much lower than other carbon filled materials - it produces functional prototyping and industrial parts with properties close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding while matching the easy and fast printing of unreinforced plastics.
Even in its fourth year, Formnext is setting new and impressive records. On an exhibition area of more than 36,000 square meters, 550 exhibitors will present numerous innovations, world firsts, and trailblazing industrial applications. This will make Formnext - being held from November 13 to 16, 2018 - the international guiding star for additive manufacturing and modern industrial manufacturing methods.
