SLM Solutions at formnext 2016

SLM Solutions Group AG will exhibit at formnext 2016, the international event for the next generation of manufacturing technologies, and present its comprehensive product portfolio for additive manufacturing based on the Selective Laser Melting process. The presentation features the live operation of all machines. From 15 to 18 November 2016, the North Germans shall be presenting their latest technical developments at their booth H50 in Hall 3.1.

The formnext trade fair shows how product ideas can be efficiently implemented, from design to manufacture to series production. Aside from the world elite in additive manufacturing, renowned and innovative companies from the industrial tool and mold-making sector are presenting their products at the formnext, as well as firms dedicated to materials, mechanical engineering, measurement technology, prototyping, further processing, and accessories.

This year twice as many exhibitors have registered their participation than at the onset of last year's formnext trade fair. SLM Solutions is using its enlarged exhibition space to show the entire machinery pool of SLM manufacturing technology at booth H50 in Hall 3.1 from 15 to 18 November 2016. All the machines shall be presented in live operation. SLM will demonstrate new technological developments to the three machine types.

Apart from the technological advances, the machine periphery shall be impressively shown at the booth using VR technology. Virtual reality provides the fairgoers deeper insights both in the technology as well as different process flows and details in a simple and comprehensible manner.

Additionally, for the first time SLM Solutions shall present future software projects developed in-house under the Motto "Software Solutions for Additive Technology in Manufacturing" at the fair. These development projects particularly emphasize the individually customized adaptation and integration of additive technology in the manufacturing and production environment.

"We await the formnext 2016 with high expectations. We look forward to lively interchanges with our customers and prospective buyers, and to demonstrating the latest exciting developments in our business divisions", says Stefan Ritt, Head of Global Sales & Marketing at SLM Solutions Group AG.
