Experience 3D Printing
The Additive Manufacturing Association in the VDMA offers its members from industry and scientific research a variety of services related to industrial 3D printing technologies. We are the cross-industry platform where potential users and development partners meet and work together.
At this year’s Formnext, the leading trade fair for additive manufacturing, the Additive Manufacturing Association within VDMA will present a special exhibition centering on the process chain of additive manufacturing.
In this interview, Johannes Krumme, Sales Manager Vacuum Conveying, talks about challenges in vacuum conveying technology in the AM sector, a completely digital order processing with 3D-printed grippers, and his expectations for AM process chains in 2030.
For today, Tuesday, April 24th, the Additive Manufacturing Association within VDMA has organized a top-class symposium. From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Pavillon P36, experts will report on advantages of additive manufacturing processes for metals and plastics in mechanical engineering
General meeting reacts to the dynamic growth of the Association with an enlargement of the Executive Board - Representatives from the industry explain the potentials of additive manufacturing in automobile and machinery manufacturing
For the 4th time already, the Additive Manufacturing Symposium organized by the Additive Manufacturing Association in cooperation with the fair in Hannover will take place at the Hannover Messe. Technology suppliers and users of the new manufacturing technologies will both have their say, all under the headline “Mechanical Engineering.”
In this interview, product manager Christian Radau explains why gas flow management is important for selective laser melting, and where he sees potential for optimization as well as added value for users and final customers.
The Additive Manufacturing Association has organized a special exhibition with the theme “Ready4Industry”, showcasing a multitude of successful applications for additively manufactured components in the industry
Member companies of the VDMA Association are presenting best-practice applications from various sectors. Solutions of printed metals, plastics, and ceramics for car manufacturing, aviation, production technology, as well as electronics and energy plant production
AM4You-Area at formnext 2017 is gathering talented experts and leaders. The lecture program will teach some knowhow. The VDMA Association organizes presentations targeting the use of additive technologies in forges, foundries, and the automotive industry.
One of the current challenges for companies in additive manufacturing is to print a real part directly out of CAD data, in best quality that is also reproducible. In order to achieve a better starting position, Toolcraft, a manufacturing services provider, uses a simulation software for 3D printing of metals.
