Formnext + PM South China is a 3D printing sector event that is set to have its première this September in Shenzhen. It has stated that it has collaborated with the Verband Deutscher Maschinen-und Anlagenbau (VDMA) and the Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing (ACAM).
These are the two best high-level production groups in Germany. The partnership between the China-based conference and the German collection firms focuses to bringing some of the common new wave 3D printing, powder metallurgy and high-level ceramic technologies from Germany to China’s market.
Formnext + PM South China that is set for September 9-11, 2020, will be held at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center. The novel occasion was arranged to concentrate on the Chinese business and highlight the latest technologies in the areas of 3D printing, smart manufacturing, ceramic materials, powder metallurgy, forming, and post-processing.
The agreement with ACAM and VDMA will reinforce the industrial exhibition and will back the overarching purpose to reduce the production cycle with reduced cost and the best quality through the assimilation of novel technologies.
As a section of the deal, ACAM will co-organize the Discover 3D Printing Seminar at the event and will showcase the latest additive manufacturing technologies and applications from Germany. Described as a one-stop-shop for AM, ACAM provides access to additive manufacturing coaching and education, personalized services, and procedure, software and systems engineering. ACAM members comprise of Danfoss, Linde, GE Additive, Okuma, Stratasys, Oerlikon, and Toyota, among others.
VDMA, for its section, will gather its members collectively in a tent with the objective of developing their abroad business and supporting the growth for companies in the Chinese manufacturing firms. Now, VDMA has around 3,300 members, that is why it is the biggest network company for mechanical engineering in Europe. The additive manufacturing Association in VDMA purposes as a program for relating all firms and examination institutes around the 3D printing equivalent supply chain.
“ACAM are excited about Formnext + PM South China, and will offer our services covering further education for companies as well as consulting and developments in the relevant areas of additive manufacturing to Chinese and other Asian manufacturing industries,” stated Managing Director and Partner of ACAM, Dr-Ing Kristian Arntz.
“We expect it to be a great show as the market is emerging and additive manufacturing is becoming more and more important to many companies in this area.”
“For our 150 member companies, this new trade fair creates interesting access to the important Chinese market and the growing markets of the region. At the same time, it offers the perspective of assisting the cooperation with this important region. We also see the opportunity to strengthen Formnext in Frankfurt as the world’s leading trade fair for additive technologies through this event together with our partners,” added Dr. Markus Heering, Managing Director of the Additive Manufacturing Working Group of VDMA.
Apart from that VDMA and ACAM, Formnext + PM South China has as well signed collaborations with the China Powder Metallurgy Alliance (CPMA) and the China Ceramic 3D Printing Alliance. Leading advanced production firms have now recorded for the sector occasion in September, plus 3DCERAM, 3D Systems, Shining 3D, SLM Solutions, GKN Sinter Materials, Siemens and more.
