France is one of the most important European countries in AM and has had a strong presence at Formnext for years.
This year, more than 30 French companies, associations and research institutes will be exhibiting at Formnext and presenting their range of services to the international trade audience. The French AM industry will be presenting a very diverse portfolio of products and services along the entire process chain: from materials, hardware and software, engineering to post-processing and various services.
The French AM exhibitors are broadly positioned - among them are internationally established AM companies such as AddUp, numerous highly innovative young companies such as Lynxter and Pollen AM as well as other renowned industrial companies such as Arkema, BINC Industries SAS, Constellium, Granges, for which Additive Manufacturing is playing an increasingly important role. French exhibitors will be present, among others, at the Formnext French Pavilion in a special area in Hall 12.0-C33.

We visited some of our exhibitors in France this summer. An exciting overview of the French AM landscape is provided by our partner country specials in Fon Mag online.
In France, not only the strong aerospace and automotive industries offer promising applications for Additive Manufacturing, but also construction and architecture (served by Constructions 3D, 11.1-F69), viticulture (solutions from VLM Robotics, 12.0-C39), medical technology and many more. With France Additive (12.0-C27), Cimes/Initiative 3D (12.0-B28), CCI Nouvelle-Aquitaine (12.0-C39) and the Carnot network for additive manufacturing (12.0-C21) French partners and important AM associations, regions and research institutions are also represented at the trade show.
