Exhibitor feedback to Rapid.Tech 3D

What our exhibitors say about one of the most important events for additive manufacturing processes.

Jonathan Hodel

Mechanical Technician, Dyze Design, Lemoyne, Canada
Our company exhibited at Rapid.Tech 3D six years ago. This time around, we were back in Erfurt, all the way from Canada, to present our further developed range of extrusion systems. These include products such as hotends, extruders and sensors, which form the heart of filament 3D printers, so to speak. We got to hold some promising talks at Rapid.Tech 3D with the aim of expanding the international distribution of our systems. Our stay in the beautiful city of Erfurt also added to the great atmosphere.

Dr. Kerstin Michalke

Research Associate in the Manufacturing Technology/Automation Working Group, Model Factory Virtualisation, Ernst Abbe University of Applied Sciences Jena, Germany
The transfer of knowledge on additive and digitalisation topics as well as industry networking are focal points of our work. Rapid.Tech 3D offers a fantastic springboard for this. Here we can meet potential partners from the SME sector in particular. This year's event has enabled us once again to establish interesting contacts and enjoy some in-depth discussions. It was noticeable how the event was more international than in previous years.

Martin Slotty

Sales Manager, Krumm-tec, Endingen, Germany
Rapid.Tech 3D is a major trade fair for us. As expected, we welcomed expert visitors who were interested in our cleaning plants and filter systems. They came mainly from central Germany as well as from Hesse, Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia. What we appreciate about Erfurt is how well organised it is and the fact that you can make regional contacts here which you won’t find at similar events.

Dominik Stasiak

Channel Manager, Sinterit, Krakow, Poland
Sinterit has been around for nine years, and we have been coming to Erfurt for eight of those to present our developments in innovative desktop 3D printing with SLS technology. Rapid.Tech 3D holds a special significance for us, because this is where we met an investor, the FIT Group, with whom we have been working successfully ever since. Every year we’ve been able to generate business from trade fair contacts after the event. That will undoubtedly also be the case in 2023. Plus, we always look forward to Erfurt because it’s a chance to meet partners that we’ve grown friendly with, because it’s got excellent transport connections and other infrastructure, and because there’s a committed team at Messe Erfurt that takes very good care of the exhibitors. We will most definitely be back for the 20th Rapid.Tech 3D next year.

Markus May

Managing Director, 3Faktur GmbH, Jena, Germany
Rapid.Tech 3D is a fixture on our trade fair schedule. We appreciate the combination of specialist conference and trade exhibition. This combination attracts very knowledgeable visitors from the different sectors of both large companies and SMEs. As a specialist in additively manufactured plastic components using the multi-jet fusion process, which are applied in various industries such as automotive, mechanical engineering or medical technology, we usually succeed in gaining new customers or expanding business with existing customers. We made some promising contacts again this year.
