MAINTENANCE 2016 - Antwerp Expo, 20 - 21 April 2016

The most important Belgian trade show on industrial maintenance, asset management, shutdowns and production reliability

3D Print & Scan Stand


3D printing is hot… but what can you do with it?

Formando will be presenting the various different 3D printing and scanning possibilities and applications on the 3D Print&Scan Stand.

For example, did you know 3D prints can be created starting from a plastic wire, powder or liquid?

And that metal printing is now increasingly on the rise?

And that some techniques result in very detailed visual models and that other techniques are more suitable for functional pieces and production parts?

Visit the 3D Print&Scan Stand for an explanation of the various different 3D techniques, materials, features and finishing possibilities. Plus ten 3D printed gadgets will be handed out every hour!

Is 3D scanning the solution?

Would you like to make some changes to your existing business premises or technical installation, but you don’t have the technical drawings? It’s sometimes easier to start off with a 3D scan for complex properties and properties with organic shapes. A long range 3D scanner can completely measure a building or installation and the result will be supplied as a CAD drawing, with an accuracy of a few millimetres!

Do visit the “3D Print&Scan Stand” in hall 4 if you are interested in finding out how the scanning process works. Have yourself scanned and be in with a chance of winning a sculpture of yourself*. Among the prizes is even a free scan session in your company (to the value of half a day of scanning or a maximum surface area of 100 m²).


* 5 colour sculptures and 5 mono-colour sculptures (bust on a pedestal) will be raffled among the people who have been scanned every day. The 3D scans taken of you can also be emailed to you upon request.
