CNC Barcenas in formnext 2017 (14. – 17.11.2017)

After visiting the TCT show in Birmingham we have continued our international journey in the formnext show in Frankfurt, the most important annual event in Europe – competing to be the largest in the world – in the new manufacturing technologies, additive manufacturing and 3D printing sector.

With 470 exhibitors and more than 21,000 visitors, formnext 2017 is clearly placed at the head of the sector in Europe, and CNC Bárcenas has already reached an agreement with the organization to present our Discovery 3D Printers in the 2018 edition.

In the field of innovation, we have held meetings with leading companies in the manufacture of industrial polymers, with which we have established collaborative relationships to work on R & D and testing of new materials and composites, and on the other hand we have completed the process of chosing which will be our technological partner in the future business line of reverse design and engineering

Among the great number of novelties that have been presented at the show, we have been particularly interested in the impulse of additive manufacturing technologies in the production processes of various sectors in the 4.0 industry. 3D industrial printing is no longer focused solely on the manufacture of prototypes, parts or individual tools in short series, but many large companies are implementing serial production infrastructures with multiple 3DP equipment interconnected through the cloud, even between different plants of production.

Everything in Frankfurt is on a large scale. In addition to being considered de facto the economic and financial capital of the European Union because it houses the main groups and financial institutions of the EU, including the headquarters of the European Central Bank, the Deutsche Bundesbank or the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, it has the densest motorway junction in the world, the third busiest airport in Europe and a Skyline of skyscrapers in the center of the city that is colloquially called “Mainhattan”.

And finally Messe Frankfurt, one of the oldest fairs and now among the largest in the world, home to major exhibitions, fairs and international shows such as the Frankfurt Motor Show, the largest in the sector, the Book Fair, also the most important in the world, and of course: the formnext show of new manufacturing technologies.

We hope to meet you at our next appointment as exhibitors: 30BIEMH in Bilbao, which will be held from May 28 to June 1, 2018 at the Bilbao Exhibition Center.

In the 30BIEMH of Bilbao we will be presenting our novelties in CNC machinery and 3D Printers, especially our new Super Discovery 3D Printer, a unique printer in Europe for its technology, dimensions and performance.
