Beyond 3D printing’s benefits for prototyping, additive manufacturing today allows for the creation of complex products that are lighter, stronger and less wasteful. 


Make accurate models quickly using a variety of materials.


Use high resolution scanning for reverse engineering.


Create complex parts that would be impossible any other way.

The next industrial revolution is here.

Come to Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016 at RAI Amsterdam and see the latest technology in action, from full AM / 3D printing systems, software solutions, scanning and imaging equipment, finishing solutions, and material innovations. It’s the entire advanced design and manufacturing ecosystem in one place!

Why visit?

AM / 3D printing for automotive

Advances in additive manufacturing technologies are allowing automotive manufacturers to create enhanced designs that result in less expensive, safer and lighter products in the shortest time possible. Traditionally used for rapid prototyping, AM is now being used for direct manufacturing as well.

Who should visit?

  • Corporate management
  • Process / manufacturing engineers
  • Design and product engineers
  • Manufacturing and engineering managers
  • Purchasing managers

The show will cover all business applications (including design and prototyping). In terms of manufacturing, the focus will be on healthcare, aerospace and automotive.

Opening times
