FormNext 2019: focus on Additive Integration

From November 19th to 22nd we will exhibit at FormNext, the leading exhibition and conference dedicated to additive manufacturing technologies. For this edition, Additive Integration and the importance of a short supply chain are going to be our main focuses. You can find us at Stand B69, Hall 11.1.

FormNext, now in its fifth year, consolidates its position as the world's leading exhibition for additive manufacturing: from design to serial production, with a focus on innovation and technologies of the future.

The event keeps growing year by year: the 2019 edition will see the attendance of more than 740 exhibitors and an exhibition floor area of over 50,000 m², that’s 35% greater than Formnext 2018; these figures demonstrate how the sector is constantly growing and evolving.

“With a wide range of solutions as well as established and completely new special topics, Formnext 2019 once again represents the global benchmark for additive manufacturing and modern industrial productio,” commented Sascha Wenzler, Vice President of Formnext; indeed, Formnext showcases the diverse world of additive manufacturing and AM processes, from software to pre-processing, post-processing and surface finishing, including quality assurance.

For this edition, our focus is Additive Integration, a concept we introduced during the 2018 event and kept developing since then.

Thanks to the expansion of our in-house department, which now features three 5 Axis GF Mikron MILL CNC machining centers with robotized island and one Mikron MILL P800 U D, Zare can combine 3D printing and CNC machines, offering the shortest time to market and the shortest and easiest supply chain possible. With Additive Integration we can make the most of additive technologies to produce lighter components with greater performances and combine them with CNC machining through high-performance machine tools, thus obtaining the quality and the accuracy required by the most critical sectors.

Additive Integration implies an even shorter supply chain, a key element when it comes to guaranteeing the confidentiality of a project. That’s why Zare decided to set up a department entirely dedicated to CNC machining, but also several in-house services such as: furnaces for heat treatment, a metrology laboratory, a quality control and testing department, an analysis laboratory and two departments where parts and components can be hand-finished.

Additive Integration, the supply chain, the challenges the future holds: these are the topics we are going to discuss at Formnext; for the first time, the event, due to its huge growth, will take place in Halls 11 and 12, the most modern part of the Frankfurt exhibition grounds.
