3D Printing of composites to accelerate time to market

7th February 2019

3D Printing of composites is becoming an increasingly explored commercial opportunity. The 3D Printing industry is looking for functional enhancements to assist industrial uptake and meanwhile the traditional composites industry is looking at ways to allow more design freedom, accelerate time to market, and reduce the costs for low-production volume.

3D Printing Europe is a technical B2B conference and tradeshow, co-located as part of the IDTechEx Show! This event runs from April 10th to 11th in Berlin, Germany, and features a session dedicated to the commercialisation of 3D Printing of composites after a highly successful launch at the partner USA event last November.

IDTechEx forecast that the 3D Printing market will be worth $22bn by 2028 and this conference brings the voice of this emerging market, including talks from Dassault Systemes, Ultimaker, BotFactory, and more.

3D Printing of composites is seeing more market entries, acquisitions, and notable orders. This rapidly emerging area is the incentive for IDTechEx to host a session on this topic in a B2B conference. The session includes presentations from:

  • SGL Carbon on ‘3D Printed Components From Carbon And Silicon Carbide (CARBOPRINT)’.
  • Anisoprint on ‘Anisoprinting The Next Generation Of Composite Materials Structures With Tailored Directional Properties’.
  • CRP Technology on ‘How Windform Composite Materials Pioneered The AM Revolution’.
  • Fiberneering on ‘Achieving High Performance, Easy To Integrate And Weight Optimised Composite Parts Through Our 3D Printing Process’.
  • Brightlands Material Center on ‘Embedding Unique Functionalities in composites by continuous fibre printing’.

Alongside this session there are a full two-days of presentations with sessions on key materials (metals, polymers, electronics) and key industry verticals (transportation and medical).

The IDTechEx Show! co-locates eight conferences and an exhibition, which 3D Printing Europe attendees get complete access to, this includes graphene and 2D materials, printed electronics, energy storage, and more. It is the leading event on emerging technologies with over 250 presentations from leading companies; more than 2,500 attendees and 200 exhibitors.

Two analyst-led masterclasses dedicated to 3D printing of polymers and metals will be held on April 9th, to provide a comprehensive overview and outlook for the industry.
