HANNOVER MESSE 2020, 20 - 24 April
Engineered Parts & Solutions additional format

Additive Manufacturing

Straight from a 3D model to a finished product – simple creation of complex shapes

Marketplace for innovations in manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing2

Additive manufacturing is all set to take industry by storm. Following on from the success of 3D printers, new machines are now entering the market that are capable of producing finished products as opposed to mere prototypes. These machines deposit material – layer by layer – on the basis of 3D computer data. To this end new industrial materials have been developed that easily match their conventional equivalents in terms of performance and reliability.

The display category Additive Manufacturing at HANNOVER MESSE is a new platform where innovations can be showcased together. The focus will be on IT systems for the processing of 3D models as a basis for additive manufacturing. This will tie in closely with the trade fair IAMD , where the latest automation methods and tools are on show.

At the special display Additive Manufacturing Plaza visitors can experience the process from 3D to end product and thus gain a fascinating insight into additive manufacturing. It will be one of the trade fair highlights.


  • Generation, acquisition and scanning of 3D models

5th Additive Manufacturing Symposium

Opportunities and benefits of additive manufacturing for mechanical engineering


Additive manufacturing is making successful inroads into industry. On the basis of real-world industrial applications, solution providers will demonstrate the wide range of possible uses for and strengths of 3D printing for manufacturing.

The Additive Manufacturing Symposium on Tuesday, 2 April 2019, will provide examples of additive manufacturing in action. This industry get-together is part of the Digital Factory trade fair and is aimed at manufacturing enterprises. The Additive Manufacturing Association in the VDMA is organizing the program under the motto of “Opportunities and benefits of additive manufacturing for mechanical engineering”, the focus will be on practical examples from the field.

The program is rounded off with a Guided Tour, taking visitors to the Digital Factory hall, where exhibitors will showcase their additive manufacturing solutions.
