3D printing specialist Concept Laser plans to show the additive manufacturing process chain at the TCT Show, which takes place in Frankfurt, Germany, in November.

‘The entire process chain of additive production is to be displayed with all its various facets [and] the focus is directed towards a comprehensive machine concept under the motto of AM Factory of Tomorrow,’ the company said in a press release.

‘It is high time that the industrial dimension of additive manufacturing was revealed,’ said Frank Herzog, CEO & president and founder of Concept Laser. ‘Great steps forward have been taken with build rates, process configuration and quality assurance. Now, users are focusing on digital networking and automation.

‘Build rates have increased enormously with multilaser technology. The build envelope sizes have increased remarkably,’ he added. ‘Now, we intend to use an integrated system concept to show what possibilities exist for ‘Industry 4.0’ approaches to change additive manufacturing as the production strategy for the future. There is a whole host of potential for boosting flexibility and the created value.’

Visitors at the company’s booth will find information covering the main production steps in AM such as design, production and quality assurance.
