Consolidated as the only professional fair in Spain for additive manufacturing and 3D
Three months before the opening of the fair, around 40 companies, 7 of which are foreign, with an extensive record in additive manufacturing and 3D printing have confirmed their participation in ADDIT3D. Among the confirmed exhibitors, 3D Printing Services, Asidek, Autodesk, Cadtech Ibérica, Dynamical Tools, EDDM, EOS Gmbh Electro Optical Systems, Integral 3D Printing Experts, Materialise NV, Mizar Additive Manufacturing, Optimus 3D, Pixel Sistemas, Prodintec, Quipplan Tucker, SMD 3D Pantur and Stratasys stand out.
Participating companies in ADDIT3D 2016 evaluated the first edition of the event as a success, so the marketing campaign is evolving positively, with confirmations from practically the entire contents spectrum of the fair: systems and machinery firms for additive manufacturing and 3D, equipment and printers, industrial applications, raw materials, consumables, 3D printing services, software, 3D scanners, R&D and training.
The conference programme, coordinated by ADDIMAT, will cover once again the sector’s major challenges and will offer cutting-edge answers and solutions to improve the product value chain. It will explain the innovations and trends in this rapidly evolving field, so visiting professionals will be able to learn about new applications that are already successful in benchmark companies of the main sectors. ADDIT3D is aimed at companies that are in the first phase of the incorporation of this technology and those that are working with it but need more advanced developments and seek specific applications in parts, materials, software and design solutions and CAM.
Furthermore, ADDIT3D will multiply connection opportunities between companies thanks to the European Subcontracting Meeting. The organisers of the forum are already working on invitations to R&D professionals from large manufacturers in the automation, aeronautics, railway and medical sectors, who are potential buyers of the technologies and products exhibited at ADDIT3D. Thanks to prior strict data collection and cross-referring and selective programming of meetings, the number of agreements, collaboration opportunities and projects will reach high percentages.
Lastly, as ADDIT3D is being held at the same time as five other industrial events – SUBCONTRATACION, International Fair of Manufacturing Processes and Equipment; MAINTENANCE, Industrial Maintenance Fair; PUMPS & VALVES, International Trade Show for Pump Systems, Valves and Equipment for Industrial Processes; FERROFORMA, International Hardware, DIY and Industrial Supplies Fair; and FITMAQ, International Fair of Bargain & Used Machinery – it will increase its value as a place for business and knowledge transfer, and will generate interesting synergies at all levels.
ADDIT3D, which will be held from 6th to 8th June at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, is organised by ADDIMAT, Spanish Association for Additive and 3D Manufacturing Technologies, and Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
