Formnext 2022

Formnext is an international trade fair for additive manufacturing technologies and their upstream and downstream processes. Parallel to the trade fair, an accompanying conference will be held to address current and future application possibilities in the field of additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing.

At the trade show, visitors can discover innovative production technologies and get an impression of the future potential of additive manufacturing. The trade show will thus become an international meeting point for the next generation of intelligent industrial production.

Together with other Fraunhofer institutes the Fraunhofer IST is participating in a joint booth of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Using the prototype of a 3D printer with built-in plasma source we will be presenting possibilities for combining interfacial chemistry and adhesion optimization with additive manufacturing and plasma technology. Example exhibits that have already been printed and treated will also be at our booth.

The prototype will demonstrate how plasma source surface treatment can improve human body cell acceptance of 3D printed implants.

We look forward to your visit in hall 11.0, booth D51.
