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, in a special area in Hall 12.0. Find here all exhibitors from France at a glance:French exhibitors
In France, not only the strong aerospace and automotive industries offer promising applications for Additive Manufacturing, but also construction and architecture (served by Constructions AM), viticulture (solutions from VLM Robotics), medical technology and many more. With France Additive, Cimes, CCI Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the Carnot network for additive manufacturing, French partners and important AM associations, regions and research institutions are also represented at the trade show.
The event’s second day, 16 November, will be dedicated to the partner country France, including partner presentations by Cimes and France Additive, a visit by a French delegation and other events. The background of the French AM industry will also be presented exclusively in a special issue of Formnext Magazine (to be published on 1 September 2022). A further taste of Formnext will also be provided by Journée Initiative 3D, an industry event hosted by Cimes on 22 September 2022 in Grenoble, where Formnext will be a partner and invite to a networking reception afterwards. Only at Formnext you can get the special edition of our AM Field Guide in French. Just drop by the trade press booth in hall 12.0, foyer west!
