Axis tries each year to increase its partnerships in the world of rapid prototyping in order to be able to make the best use of its know-how and to be able to apply it in different industrial sectors. 2019 was therefore a year rich in encounters through our presence at several national and international fairs.
- March 5 to 8, 2019: Global Industrie in Lyon
This fair, dedicated to industrial subcontracting, takes place every year: in Lyon in odd years, in Paris in even years. Axis has been participating in it with pleasure for several years now, with the ambition to meet new partners but also to maintain links with former employees. In 2019, this event brought together more than 1,200 exhibitors with almost 46,000 visitors over the 4 days.
- May 15-18, 2019: Metal Tech in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This event has been dedicated to the industry for more than a decade. Axis participated in this fair with a long-standing partner: 3D printing Asia. This show was an opportunity for Axis to open up to the Asian market in which we were still little present and to observe what Asian suppliers had as skills. Metal Tech welcomes more than 1,200 exhibitors for 20,000 visitors from 42 different countries.
• June 4 to 6, 2019: 3D Print in Lyon
Created in 2013, 3D Print is the 1st exhibition in France devoted to 3D printing methods. Axis being one of the pioneering companies in the field of rapid prototyping in 3D printing, it is important for us to present ourselves there among 150 exhibitors active in the 3D printing sector in France. Axis was therefore able to demonstrate its skills in stereolithography, powder sintering or even in vacuum casting, to more than 6,000 visitors. This event allowed Axis to create new contacts but also to learn about the new innovations available in additive manufacturing.
• September 30 to October 3, 2019: CMTS of Toronto, Canada
This trade show specializing in the automotive and aerospace industry has existed for over 40 years and takes place every 2 years in Toronto. Axis has been collaborating for many years in the production of prototypes linked to these two sectors, which explains, in addition to our desire to get to know the North American market, our desire to be present at this event.
• October 22 to 24, 2019: SIANE in Toulouse
Siane or Salon des Partenaires de l’Industrie celebrated its 16th edition in 2019. This annual event allows the meeting between customers and subcontractors, particularly from the west. The 2019 edition presented 740 exhibitors for nearly 10,000 visitors.
• November 19 to 22, 2019: Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany
Formnext is the world’s largest trade fair for the 3D printing industry. This fair allows to concentrate all the actors of the industry whether it is the manufacturers / suppliers of raw materials, the designers of machines or the companies which produce parts. In 2019, this fair brought together 852 exhibitors for nearly 35,000 visitors from around the world to be up to date with new innovations in the industry. We were there with one of our closest partners.
• Fairs planned for the year 2020
For 2020, Axis wishes to continue to increase its number of partners in order to continue to perpetuate our company and our know-how. We will start on January 7, 2020 with the CES in Las Vegas, a trade show specializing in new technologies, thanks to the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. We will then go to Midest from March 31 to April 3 in Paris for this 2020 edition, to the show, 3D Print from June 16 to 18 and we will finish with FormNext from November 10 to 13.
