The stand will have distinct focus areas: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM); water-soluble support materials; and sustainable materials, which will include DURABIO™ and BioPBS™, both developed by Mitsubishi Chemical. The fourth area is dedicated to “partnering”, which is a key factor in the successful development of innovative solutions.
One of the highlights on the booth will be the gigantic Colossus printer. This unique 3D printer, which is the size of a sea container, will be printing chairs in real time during the fair.
