CME Canada Makes at Formnext 2019

Just two weeks ago Canada Makes led another Trade Mission to Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany.   Participating this year were 9 delegates from Canadian organizations; Precision ADM, CMQ, NRC, AON3D, and Red River College.

We met with global experts in additive materials, equipment, software, post processing and product design.  Thank you to the following companies for hosting our coordinated meetings;  AddUp, Polyshape, German Trade and Invest, SLM, Fraunhofer, Leichtbau Light Weighting Association, Tekna, GE, EOS, FIT, and Hendrik Taulin from the Embassy of Canada.    Formnext is the leading exhibition on additive manufacturing and industrial 3D Printing and we could see that by the incredible scope of applications presented in the show.

The Canada Makes Trade Mission provides opportunity to connect with international additive manufacturing leaders and to develop strong connections with fellow delegates.   For Canadian companies the trade missions also open new doors, gain new contacts and technical insight into these advanced markets.
