Formnext 3DP collectief

Largest networking stand at Formnext

This year, Flam3D and Brainport Eindhoven are joining forces to represent the Flemish and Dutch Additive Manufacturing (AM) value chain. That’s proving to be a successful venture: over a dozen organisations will be present at the 126m² booth D11 in hall 11.0.

The cooperation is no coincidence: together, Flam3D and Brainport Eindhoven represent a network of over 200 companies, R&D centres, higher education institutes active in the Additive Manufacturing value chain. The network comprises of AM-dinosaurs like Materialise and Ultimaker, renown universities, and high-growth gazelles, yet also some specialised companies, mastering their own specific contribution to the 3D print ecosystem – like the 2019 winner of the Formnext start-up award AdditiveLabs, or the 2020 winner AM Flow.

Flam3D, active in both Flanders and the Netherlands, has been a regular exhibitor at Formnext, with a booth that grew in size every single edition. According to Flam3D, this growth does not so much reflect the increase of their own membership base, yet mostly the growth of the AM-business in the region.

Flam3D is the independent Dutch-Flemish Additive Manufacturing Association, representing over 120 organisations active in the domain of 3D printing. All these organisations represent almost the entire 3D-ecosystem: suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, manufacturing companies using additive or hybrid manufacturing, schools, and research institutions. We unite, represent and support companies, research institutions, governments, and stakeholders. Flam3D is looking to strengthen value chains, both inside and outside the organization. We are open for companies and organizations interested in 3D-printing and Additive Manufacturing applications. Within our network, we will always find relevant contacts to help you with your 3D challenge. This page gives an overview of our main activities.
