Sustainable structural change with additive manufacturing at the 18th Rapid. Tech 3D from 17 to 19 May 2022 in Erfurt

More than 2,500 guests attended the congress and trade fair of the 18th Rapid. Tech 3D from 17 to 19 May 2022 in Erfurt. They learned about new products and services of Additive Manufacturing (AM) at 97 exhibitors from 11 countries. Thirteen companies came to Thuringia from abroad, including companies from the USA, Great Britain, Austria and Switzerland. The visitors accepted the congress offer very well.

Visitors experienced the almost unlimited possibilities of additive manufacturing not only in the keynotes and forums of the trade congress, but often “to touch” at the booths of the exhibitors. The exhibitors reported almost in unison on many expert visitors from the industry – from large corporations to small companies, who often came to the stands with very specific questions.

The next Rapid. Tech 3D will take place from 9 to 11 May 2023 in Erfurt.
