Neil Wilson attends Formnext 2018

Formnext is the leading European trade show for additive manufacturing. Exhibitors and visitors come from all over the globe to learn about the latest advancements in 3D printing.

This show is a big deal in the world of additive manufacturing.

During November, Romar’s founder Neil Wilson attended this event. It is important that Romar keeps up-to-date with the fast changing world of additive manufacturing.

Formnext exhibits additive manufacturing across the entire range of materials including polymers and metals. Visitors chat to exhibitors from every stage of the production process from design and manufacture to series production.

Additive Manufacturing at Romar with LASERTEC 65

DMG Mori are leaders in the production of 3D printing machines. In partnership with the CSIRO, Romar is the first company in the southern hemisphere to offer a DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine.

Our team of engineers are highly skilled at using this machine to create products that would have previously been impossible.

At Formnext, the DMG Mori booth greeted visitors with the Lasertec 65 hybrid system on the left and the world premiere of the Lasertec 12 SLM taking center stage. DMG Mori continue to evolve their 3D printing capabilities.

Neil chatted to SpaceX at the conference. They are using the Lasertec to manufacture pump components for rocket engines and so far have successfully used 200 Lasertec manufactured parts in space.

Additive manufacturing is the future

It’s been called a revelation and not a revolution… 3D printing is now more accessible than ever before. Kodak launched their first 3D printer this year for the personal consumer market.

Small to medium size businesses use 3D printers to create parts as needed which saves on money and time. For example mechanics use 3D printers to create car parts without wait time at a reduced cost.

Romar continues to evolve with additive manufacturing requests and advancements. If you have an idea, a drawing, a vision, a product, a technical problem, or anything that needs a commercially viable and productive solution – contact us today.
