Largest 3-D Printing Event in North America Returns to Detroit


The world’s leading additive manufacturing companies are expected to attend RAPID + TCT, one of the largest 3-D printing events in North America, when it returns to Detroit next year.

The conference, to take place May 20-23 at Cobo Center, is produced by SME and Rapid News Publications Ltd, the owner of The TCT group. The event will feature product announcements, education opportunities, more than 300 exhibits, and networking with more than 6,000 guests.

“The additive manufacturing industry is continuing to grow quickly. Continual developments and improvements in technology and materials mean that we are now seeing the technology used in an even wider range of industries and applications than before,” says Duncan Wood, CEO of Rapid News Publications Ltd. “Additive is therefore more important and relevant than ever, and in North America, this critical mass of insights, intelligence, and inspiration can only be found at RAPID + TCT.”

Major additive manufacturing companies attending include HP Inc., Stratasys, Desktop Metal, GE Additive, TRUMPF North America, Titan Robotics, and Cincinnati Inc., among others.

The automotive industry is one of the biggest users of additive manufacturing.
