Last week Armor 3D attended APS Meetings in Lyon. This business convention dedicated to additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and product development was an ideal opportunity to present the range of hi-tech filaments to various professionals of the sector.
On 20 and 21 March, Armor 3D was one of the international suppliers at the APS Meetings convention. The 6th staging of the event attracted over 350 participants to a variety of conferences such as additive manufacturing in healthcare, the place of 3D technologies in the production cycle of a large group, and many other issues. A number of top-quality presenters enabled the audience to better understand the impact of additive manufacturing on the industry, as well as how it might be used on a day-to-day basis in sectors such as aviation, automotive, sport, and cosmetics. Each supplier had the opportunity to meet different suppliers for a thirty-minute period to discuss requirements and the available solutions.
It was an excellent opportunity for Armor 3D to present its range of filaments, notably its hi-tech filaments. The meetings held during the convention were above all an opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility of printing high-temperature technical materials such as the PEI 1010 and PEKK Carbon using new and affordable 3D printers.
The Armor 3D team in attendance in Lyon met purchasers from the manufacturing industry, notably transport, including the railways, automotive, aviation, space and defense sectors. A total of 26 meetings were held. Yannick Castel, Channel Sales Manager at Armor 3D, explains: “The meetings were highly rewarding and fruitful with people able to express their precise requirements in terms of 3D printing.”
The APS Meetings convention also enabled Armor 3D to demonstrate its know-how regarding the production of on-demand 3D printing consumables, following rigorous specifications. The staff on site were able to answer specific requests by offering materials formulation and characterization, all supplemented by tests conducted in the new laboratory. A really effective way of presenting its expertise in 3D printing filaments!
Finally, Armor 3D was especially impressed with the rigorous and structured organization of this B2B event, not to mention the opportunity to hold discussions with other exhibitors and participants. Yannick Castel concludes:
“Being able to take lunch with other exhibitors and purchasers was a real plus, enabling all of us to exchange our different experiences of additive manufacturing, rounded off with everyone sharing a coffee to exchange contact details in a friendly yet businesslike atmosphere!”
