Welcome to Additive Manufacturing Americas 2016.

The business-to-business show for
additive manufacturing / 3D printing.


Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies align well with the needs of the medical sector. The relatively small size of many medical devices as well as requirements to customize products for individual patients are well within the capabilities of current AM systems.


AM technologies enable aerospace companies to produce customized, complex, feature-rich and functional components cost-effectively and quickly. There is no necessity for tooling, while high-tech materials allow for high strength to weight ratios.


Advances in AM 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.

The future is here

Additive manufacturing / 3D printing is changing the world.

Its power is not just about rapid prototyping, the localization of production or the creation of spare parts. The benefits are becoming more evident in mainstream production and the industry is seeing more and more applications that require complex, customized solutions which increase functionality and promote innovation in design and manufacturing, while reducing lead time and waste.

From design to manufacturing

The new show will be primarily focused on the industrial use of additive manufacturing and the ecosystem of allied technologies and solutions.

It will also focus on design and prototyping and feature the latest technologies from companies pushing the boundaries in 3D printing.
