Impressive Additive Technology

Picture Gallery from Rapid.Tech 2017

The topics "Additive Manufacturing" and "3D Printing" is not only in vogue in the industrial environment. Also for consumers, 3D printers for the home are a trend with significant growth potential. At Rapid.Tech, which took place from 20 to 22 June 2017 in Erfurt, Germany, more than 200 exhibitors demonstrated their innovations in the field of additive manufacturing and 3D printing to the numerous trade fair visitors.

In our picture gallery below we show you some highlights of the Rapid.Tech 2017.

    The price is particularly important in the consumer sector. Ready-to-connect filament printers for simpler tasks and models are already available for just a few hundred euros (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    The exhibitors also presented further developments and innovations in the field of materials for additive technologies. These, again, were either intended for use in the industrial ... (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    In addition to the well-known filament printers, there are also systems for selective laser sintering (SLS) available that come in sizes and performance classes which are also of interest for the semiprofessional sector (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    At Rapid.Tech 2017 also entries of the 3D Pioneers Challenge 2017 (3DPC), an international competition for additive manufacturing technologies, were exhibited, The submissions ranged from additively crafted dresses ... (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    Particularly in the automotive industry, even prototype components must be comparable on the material side to the later series production part. Components made of polypropylene (PP) manufactured via SLS, such as the lamp support shown here, also meet high demands on load capacity and geometry. (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    Plastic components manufactured via SLS are characterized by close attention to detail and good technical properties. Functional parts can also be produced with this technology. Thanks to new powder materials, the performance of this additive technology can be further increased (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    It is even possible to produce molds or mold inserts for injection molding machines with which smaller series of approximately 200-250 parts can be manufactured at low cost (©Hanser/A. Stein)

    A real eye-catcher was the RUF CTR 2017, which MTA Prototyping exhibited at their booth. The high-performance sports car is currently still a prototype, albeit fully functional, and consists of many generatively manufactured components (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    Even if the look is reminiscent of a Porsche, the CTR 2017 is a complete proprietary development of the company RUF. The first RUF CTR from 1987 was based on a Porsche 911 and got the nickname "Yellowbird" due to the yellow paint and the breathtaking driving performances (© Hanser/A. Stein)

    The subject was reinterpreted by innovative production and material technology and adapted to the modern requirements of the customers with regard to design and quality (© Hanser/A. Stein)
