Place: Frankfurt am Main

The Formnext Fair is one the most important events connected with Additive Manufacturing. This year it was held from the 15th until the 18th of November. Representatives of the project Consortium from Gefertec and the Institute took part in it. It was a chance to present the results of the project and the end product – the marine propeller manufactured using the WAAM technology. During the fair contacts with industry representatives were made.
