Bridging India and Germany’s AM ecosystems – AMTech Expo and Rapid.Tech 3D to have multi-year cooperation

16 May 2023: AMTech Expo, India’s business networking platform for additive manufacturing, and Rapid.Tech 3D, Germany’s established specialist conference, have agreed on a multi-year cooperation. To this end, both partners signed a corresponding agreement on the opening day of this year’s Rapid.Tech 3D May 9, 2023 at Messe Erfurt. The overarching goal is to work together to advance the AM ecosystems of both countries.

“AMTech Expo is excited to collaborate with Rapid.Tech 3D to build a bridge between the additive manufacturing ecosystems of Germany and India. This collaboration will help us foster knowledge sharing and accelerate the growth of additive manufacturing in both countries,” emphasised Aditya Chandavarkar, co-founder of AMTECH.

“The main concern for both of us is to further advance the use of AM technologies on an industrial scale. By supporting each other as partner events, we are helping to promote the transfer of expertise and technology between the AM communities of India and Germany,” underlined Michael Kynast, Managing Director of Rapid.Tech 3D organiser Messe Erfurt.

According to Wohlers Report 2023, AM products and services continue to experience double-digit growth worldwide. From 2021 to 2022, revenue rose by 18.3 percent to more than $18 billion. Germany is one of the leading markets for additive manufacturing; India one of the emerging international markets.

The Asian subcontinent sees annual growth rates of more than 20 percent. The Indian government has developed a national strategy for the accelerated use of AM technologies in the industrial sector: funded priority areas include applications in the medical, automotive, aerospace and aviation industries. It is also keen to intensify efforts to build partnerships with various companies and institutions working in international business and science. In this respect, AMTech Expo and Rapid.Tech 3D see many jumping off points for a collaboration that serves both countries equally well.

AMTech Expo is India’s largest business networking platform for additive manufacturing technology. The platform enables its members to experience the 3D printing and additive manufacturing technology ecosystem, see state-of-the-art exhibits, learn from expert-led conferences, and network with the industry to make an informed decision on where AM fits into their production process.

In just two decades, Rapid.Tech 3D has become a leading specialist event for additive manufacturing (AM) in Central Europe. At its core is the specialist conference, which international industry and research experts use to showcase the latest developments and applications, primarily in medicine, mobility, aviation and aerospace, machine and tool manufacture, as well as chemistry and process engineering.
