Due to the development of the corona pandemic and the infection situation, the advisory board of Rapid.Tech 3D and Messe Erfurt GmbH decided to hold the 17th edition of the traditional AM event on 22 and 23 June 2021 purely digitally.
The guests of the online event experienced an attractive, user-oriented specialist programme that presented AM solutions under the guiding principle of sustainability in nine industry- and technology-specific forums. In addition, 25 exhibitors presented themselves in a virtual expo and there were various networking offers.
In the congress livestream, users and providers of additive technologies presented best-practice examples as well as the latest developments in the fields of automotive & mobility, medical & orthopaedic technology, aviation, software/processes/design as well as tool, model & mould making. In addition, the forum "News from AM", which is on the agenda for the first time, offered a glimpse into the future of additive manufacturing and presented processes as well as materials that go beyond the state of the art currently used, but already have a high level of application maturity. At the same time, there was a "Rapid.Tech Special": The focus was on innovations from research and development, which were discussed in the forums AM Science, AM in Construction & Architecture and Fraunhofer Competence Field Additive Manufacturing.
For the 18th edition of the Rapid.Tech 3D - 16 to 18 May 2022 - the organizers are again planning a face-to-face event in Erfurt.
The exhibitor documents will be made available here from autumn 2021.
