Formnext Becomes a Reality in North America

Updated: Mar 11

Formnext Germany covers the entire additive manufacturing (AM) ecosystem. There was no other AM event with its scope in North America — until now. Formnext Chicago will be held April 8-10, 2025 in McCormick Place, Chicago, Il, and few are more excited than Dan Janka, president of Mazak, chairman of the board for AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, and a member of the Formnext Chicago “Founders Club.” Janka joins Peter Eelman, chief experience officer at AMT, and discusses one of the systems Mazak will feature at Formnext Chicago, the VC-500A/5X AM HWD. This hybrid multi-tasking and hot wire deposition (HWD) 5-axis system performs all or most of a part’s machining in one cycle to reduce inaccuracies that can occur when parts move across multiple workstations.
