The first Formnext celebrated its debut in 2015 with 232 exhibitors and almost 9000 visitors and has since been held annually in Frankfurt am Main.

In 2019, Formnext ist he fastest growing trade fair in Europe: 34.8 percent more exhibitors and 28.3 percent more visitors than in the previous year. The event organisers were delighted with record figures of 852 exhibitors and around 34,500 visitors from 99 nations. The decision to move tot he larger exhibition halls 11 and 12 paid fully off.

Formnext is advertised as the world´s leading trade exhibition for additive manufacturing technologies and their entire production chain. The exhibition brought together additives and convential processesand presented the next generation of intelligent industrial products.

The rapid success of Formnext can be attributed to both the rapid development of additive manufacturing technologies and market growth.

TCT Conference

The TCT conference once again complemented Formnext with exciting presentations focusing on additive manufacturing, 3D print design, CAD/CAE, metrology and inspection.
In more than 60 speeches, experts informed about current and future applications of additive technologies and their influence on product development and industrial production.

S+D METALS has accompanied and supplied the fascinating and innovative market of industrial 3D printing with construction platforms in Titan Grade 5 several years.

In order to ensure the process of additive manufacturing, a high-quality building platform is required for printing. We offer this from stock as plates from 6 mm to 155 mm. The building platforms and substrate plates can be sawn and e.g. milled and ground according to customer drawings. Tapped holes are also possible.

The fields of application cover everything from industrial to medical applications.
Mr. Oliver Frankenheim will be ahppy to answer any questions you may have on this subject and in particular on the production of our build platforms.


We thank you for many great conversations and the establishing of new and valuable contacts.

S+D METALS will participate in the next Formnext, which will take place in November 2020 in Frankfurt am Main.

See you at the next event!
