Together we are stronger

Since mid-February 2015, Concept Laser has been a member of the VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, German Engineering Association, Frankfurt (D)).The VDMA is one of the most influential trade associations in Germany and Europe. In this context, Concept Laser is involved with the "Additive Manufacturing" task force. This community brings together all the partners involved in the additive manufacturing process, from basic researchers to users and from materials suppliers to service providers and system engineers. The taskforce aims to standardize and support AM technology from an industrial manufacturing perspective.

Concept Laser is also a member of the advisory committee for Rapid.Tech, a prestigious trade fair for additive manufacturing that takes place every year in Erfurt (D). "The involvement of these two companies (Concept Laser, Arcam) raises Rapid.Tech's profile as an international platform for market leaders and innovations in the field of additive manufacturing. It also strengthens our expertise in aerospace and medical technology," explains Michael Eichmann (RTC Rapid Technologies GmbH), chair of the committee. The head of the trade fair, Wieland Kniffka, is delighted with the recognition Erfurt is receiving as a trade fair location. "With the electron beam melting and laser melting processes, we have added two more innovative technologies to our portfolio."
