Wohlers Associates, Inc. is widely regarded as one of the leading consulting firms in the 3D printing industry, having 27 years of experience and worked with 150 investment companies and 240 client organizations in 24 countries. And, every year, the firm hosts the Annual Wohlers Conference at the enormous EuroMold show in Frankfurt, Germany, where they elucidate the important trends taking place in the world of 3D printing. This year’s conference is titled “The Truth Behind the Additive Manufacturing Supply Chain”, in which a series of industry experts will be presenting a thorough examination of the major players in the field supplying 3D printers, materials, and services around the globe.
In recognition of the fact that major brands and corporations have already implemented or are exploring the use of 3D printing in their operations – including Amazon, Google, GE, Boeing, Airbus, HP, Microsoft, UPS, and more – the show will look at just how far 3D printing has come since its inception in the 80s and how much further it has to go. Principal consultant and president of Wohlers Associates, Terry Wohlers, says of the 3D printing industry, “It is not as evolved as it may seem. Investment is at an all-time high, and it will certainly help, but enormous hurdles must be overcome.” To which, the CEO of DEMAT, the company that organizes EuroMold, Dr.-Ing. Eberhard Döring adds, “EuroMold exhibitors are presented with vast opportunities in additive manufacturing. However, so much work needs to be done. EuroMold is the perfect place to discuss problems and solutions, negotiate partnerships, and initiate new projects that can make a difference.”
Specialists from Australia, Europe, Asia, and North America, will present a breadth of 3D printing knowledge and experience at this year’s conference, providing a great opportunity for EuroMold’s over 50,000 international visitors, as they visit the manufacturing event’s more than 1,000 exhibitors. Included on the speaker’s list include representatives from Airbus, HP, Siemens AG, and more.
