TECHTRA participated in the FORMNEXT exhibition in Frankfurt

The TECHTRA Technology Transfer Institute represented itself at the 2022 FORMNEXT 3D printing professional exhibition in Frankfurt. The purpose of the visit was to promote TECHTRA and lay the foundation for an AM-themed meeting in Budapest, which would directly contribute to the development of the Hungarian additive manufacturing technology ecosystem.

As a result of the discussions at the SAAB Innovation Week in May 2022, the TECHTRA Technology Transfer Institute participated in the FORMNEXT 3D printing trade fair in Frankfurt at the invitation of Siemens. The visit was of critical importance as the next step in the cooperation in the field of additive manufacturing. The exhibition made it possible to meet in person, build relationships, and get to know the current situation of the industry.

At the Frankfurt exhibition, TECHTRA was represented by international HUB leader Lilla Nedeczky, who consulted with representatives of SAAB, AMEXCI and Siemens, among others. As a result of the negotiations, after the autumn of 2022, the parties again agreed to organize a meeting on February 8 in Budapest on the topic of AM. The aim of the negotiations and the planned event is to create a domestic model by considering the Hungarian, local conditions while gaining a deeper understanding of the Swedish ecosystem. As a result of the visit to Frankfurt, TECHTRA’s recognition increased internationally.
