The Rapid.Tech is one of the most important events in the field of Additive Manufacturing. It has been providing information about the status and development of Rapid Prototyping,  the direct production of end products by using Additive Manufacturing as well as the way into series production.

Moreover, the Rapid.Tech offers developers, researchers, constructing engineers and users the possibility to exchange innovative ideas. Qualified and informative lectures combined with expert discussions between visitor and exhibitor affords the participants a successful package.

Since 2013 Rapid.Tech has been accompanied by FabCon 3.D. FabCon 3.D is a meeting place not only for creative Start-Ups but also for experts and market leaders of the 3D Printing scene. The 3D Printing Conference has quickly emerged as international forum alongside a high class exhibition.

Thoughts on Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3.D 2017:

  • Claire FischerMarketing Manager @ SLM Solutions Group AG Lübeck:

    We have been attending the trade show for many years, and we have also had many in-depth discussions this year. We received a number of enquiries about specific applications from trade visitors. We were able to explain much of what we do by presenting a new version of a machine for aluminium processing in medium-sized companies, and we also used it to win over people who are not as familiar with Additive Manufacturing technologies. Many of the questions concerned which materials can be used, how they are processed, what a normal working day looks like with a machine like this, and what services are available to assist organisations in gaining their first experiences with the technology.

  • Anna Theodorides:Customer Relations Specialist Central Europe @ EOS GmbH Krailling

    Visitors came to our stand with many different goals in mind. Some were already experts and had very detailed questions concerning the applications of our machine technology. Others who weren’t quite as well-versed in the technology had the opportunity to deepen their understanding of 3D Printing, too.

  • Lisa FrankVertrieb @ botspot GmbH Berlin

    When you ask our office who wants to go to Erfurt to man the stand at FabCon 3.D, everyone’s hand goes up. This shows what a fantastic, well-organised event it is. It’s the perfect place for our products as the 3D scanning systems we develop and market are the basis for the preliminary stage in 3D Printing. We are constantly finding new customers from within the industry here, and this year was another chance for us to discuss new projects.

  • Dr. Alejandro OjedaManaging Director @ UrbanAlps AG Zürich

    As a young company, this was our first time in Erfurt, and we were delighted to win the Start-Up Award with our duplication-proof 3D printed key. We liked the fact that the Start-Up Area was positioned centrally, which meant that we got a lot of footfall. You don’t get that at other trade fairs.
