Special show area: 3D printing live

With its “Maritime 3D Printing Show Area”, the leading trade fair for the maritime industry created for the first time a stage to present the innovative production technology, that will forever change the global flow of products and revolutionise shipping in many aspects.

Massive time savings, reduced construction and material costs, as well as significant weight reductions are just some of the benefits of 3D printing, whose potential ranges from just-in-time parts supply to the manufacturing of entire ships.

Renowned exhibitors presented their offerings and their know-how at this special exhibition. In addition to the project partner Maritimes Cluster Norddeutschland (MCN), the experts from Rolf Lenk, Gefertec, MMG, Treo, SLM Solutions and others  answered the questions of the trade visitors who experienced additive manufacturing live on site.

For more information regarding the “Maritime 3D Printing Show Area” please visit the partner website of MCN.

We are looking forward to your visit at SMM 2021.
