The SLM Solutions Group AG, a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology, will present the current development state of metal-based manufacturing technology at NORTEC 2018. The 3D-printing experts from Lübeck will exhibit in Hall A3, Booth 3115, from January 23 to 26 and participate as program organizers in the accompanying congress “ADDITIVE 2018”.
NORTEC is the first trade fair for production in the year and sole meeting place for production competence in northern Germany. Meet decision-makers and experts from all over Germany for the 16th time at NORTEC in the heart of Hamburg from January 23 to 26, 2018. As an industry meeting point and high-quality network platform, NORTEC presents all stations of the value chain in production. The trade fair focuses on the topic area of Industry 4.0 in conjunction with additive manufacturing. The conference "ADDITIVE 2018” is being held parallel to the trade fair and will provide information about production of the future.
The latest developments of machines for metal-based additive manufacturing will be at the heart of the trade fair exhibit of SLM Solutions. In practical examples, visitors can experience how build parts made of metal powder are melted by layers into stable, geometrically complex structures in the selective laser melting procedure and how these techniques can be integrated into lean, competitive production processes. An SLM 125 will be available at booth 3115 in Hall A3 for demonstration as well as for intensive discussions and sharing experiences with experts.
With its current machine facilities, SLM solutions provides many improvements and innovations in the field of machine technology for manufacturing as well as the ability to integrate with current machinery. As a result, this opens up new possibilities for industrial use of 3D printing in production. At the conference “ADDITIVE 2018” accompanying the trade fair, Hendrick Schonefeld, Head of EMEA Sales at SLM Solutions Group AG, will give a talk on the topic "SLM Solutions – Innovative Technology Development for Use in Industrial Series Production” at 1:10 p.m. on January 24. The talk will provide decision-makers, technical managers and purchasers with a current overview of how development costs are reduced with the selective laser melting process and future-oriented application scenarios can be developed through the use of new technologies.
"At NORTEC, we want to show under realistic conditions how additive manufacturing contributes to innovations in manufacturing sectors," Stefan Ritt explained, Vice President and Head of Global Marketing and Communications at SLM Solutions Group AG. "We have already been able to collaborate in developing innovative products with our technology in other sectors and are convinced that we can also provide further stimuli in the industrial sector."
