Machine tooling company Trumpf says that it will be showcasing a range of its 3D printers at the Moulding Expo trade fair, taking place from 21–24 May in Stuttgart, Germany.

The company plans to promote the use of the technology as an alternative to more traditional techniques, saying that German toolmakers have been slow to adopt additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. ‘Many companies lack the necessary expertise and are unwilling to make the investment,’ said Christoph Dörr, industry sector manager. ‘We’re hoping to inspire toolmakers to exploit the huge potential of 3D printing. That’s why we also offer them training in 3D design.’
