Fourth time was definitely the charm for AM Summit 2022. This year marked another attendance record of almost 450 visitors – an increase of just over 25 percent compared to 2021 and the highest attendance to date.
On Wednesday, September 7th, Danish AM Hub held the annual AM Summit – Scandinavia’s largest conference for additive manufacturing (AM) / industrial 3D printing. Visitors were inspired by insights on latest developments and innovations within additive manufacturing and 3D printing from 44 speakers and 45 exhibitors.
“We succeeded in addressing an important and current challenge by focusing on a more sustainable production, and by extention that of increased innovation and competitiveness among manufacturing companies. The growing interest and commitment from both Danish and international visitors demonstrate that Denmark has a leading role when it comes to new technologies”, says Poul Skadhede, Chairman of the Board of the Danish AM Hub.
The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Additive Impact – additive manufacturing and 3D printing as a driver for sustainable manufacturing’. Under this theme, 44 speakers took the stage with concrete solutions and inspiration on how new technology like 3D printing can help us produce more sustainably and competitively – with stronger and more circular business models and more robust supply chains.
Danish AM Hub works to strengthen the Danish business community’s competitiveness by promoting the use of AM and 3D printing, and helps companies take the first steps towards a more sustainable production, with AM providing the opportunity for local on-demand production with less transport and less CO2 emissions.
“The fact that we once again set a record in terms of the number of visitors at AM Summit confirms what we experience on a daily basis – that the ecosystem and interest in the technology’s potential and possibilities grows every day, and that more and more people are becoming aware of the technology. New technologies can change the way we design, develop, and produce, and 3D printing is a crucial technology to create positive development and contribute to a green transition across our production companies”, says director of Danish AM Hub, Frank Rosengreen Lorenzen.
Danish AM Hub is initiated and supported by The Danish Industry Foundation.
