Revolutionizing Additive Manufacturing: Highlights from Formnext 2023

Formnext 2023, one of the biggest additive manufacturing events, took place in Frankfurt, showcasing the latest advancements and innovations in the industry. Here are some highlights from the event.

SCANLAB, a leading provider of laser beam deflection and positioning systems, showcased its new SCANmotionControl software that can be deployed on industrial machines. This software allows for high-resolution laser scanner control, resulting in the highest quality Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) parts. Dr. Tobias Pichler from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT explained how the software helped avoid edge bulging on complex components, even on an industrial scale.

Interspectral introduced a deep integration with EOSCONNECT Core in AM Explorer, enhancing process monitoring for EOS customers. This integration provides easy access to comprehensive process monitoring data, benefiting industries like aerospace, defense, and automotive. With improved quality control and efficiency, the integration is set to reduce manual quality inspection costs by more than 50%.

Create it Real partnered with AIM3D to integrate Voxelfill process as a plug-in into the ExAM 255 and ExAM 510 system technology. Voxelfill, a patented technology by AIM3D, addresses the issue of inhomogeneous strength properties in 3D printing. By leveraging Voxelfill technology through Create it Real’s slicing software, users can achieve defined selective densities in 3D components made from various materials.

MadeInAdd made its debut at Formnext 2023, offering new services, consultancy, and an exclusive training course for those entering the additive manufacturing world. Born from a collaborative project involving the Boost Innovation Fund, MIMETE, and PUNCH Torino, MadeInAdd aims to accelerate the adoption of additive technologies and provide a central hub for various services in the additive manufacturing industry.

Farsoon Technologies expanded its presence in the Southeast Asian footwear market through a collaboration with ChanhonTech, an industrial 3D printing solutions provider specializing in digital footwear solutions. Farsoon showcased its metal and plastic powder bed fusion systems and announced global installations of these systems at Formnext 2023. This partnership aims to revolutionize footwear manufacturing in Southeast Asia by offering top-quality additive manufacturing solutions.

AddUp and MT Aerospace joined forces to advance metal additive manufacturing in Europe. With the addition of two FormUp 350 PBF machines equipped with titanium and aluminum powder, MT Aerospace expands its offerings to various industrial sectors. The partnership aims to enhance productivity, reduce post-processing, and offer a faster build rate. Key applications developed in collaboration with MT Aerospace were showcased at the AddUp booth during the event.

nTop and Autodesk partnered to transform design, 3D modeling, and manufacturing. By combining nTop and Autodesk Fusion, the partnership aims to revolutionize the industry by offering intricate, repetitive, and data-driven designs through implicit modeling. This rising approach complements traditional CAD software and has the potential to reshape the field of additive manufacturing.

Formnext 2023 showcased the latest advancements and partnerships in additive manufacturing, highlighting the potential for improved quality, efficiency, and innovation in various industries. These developments demonstrate the ongoing efforts to revolutionize additive manufacturing and push the boundaries of what is possible with 3D printing technology.

The integration between Interspectral and EOSCONNECT Core in AM Explorer offers a new level of functionality and efficiency in the additive manufacturing sector. With implicit modeling and volumetric lattice capabilities introduced by Autodesk Fusion, complex designs can now be seamlessly transferred between platforms, optimizing workflows and broadening possibilities for additive manufacturing.

This collaborative effort not only streamlines the digital thread but also enhances lightweighting, thermal management, and architected materials. By integrating complex implicit designs into the digital thread, comprehensive simulation capabilities are offered, allowing for more accurate and efficient manufacturing processes.

Scheduled for release in early 2024, live demonstrations of the integration will be showcased at Autodesk Booth 11.0 B41 during Formnext 2023. This platform provides an opportunity for professionals in the industry to witness the power of this collaboration firsthand.

In addition to this exciting integration, Sharebot, an Italian 3D printer developer, is introducing a groundbreaking concept at Formnext 2023. The LEGO Concept applies to their Snowwhite (SLS) and metalONE (SLM) 3D printers, allowing users to modularly assemble, reassemble, and configure printers according to their specific requirements.

This adaptable approach not only enhances customization but also leads to cost savings, improved efficiency, and quicker project adaptation. Sharebot will be showcasing this innovative technology at Formnext, located at Hall 12.1, booth E118.
