Industrial gas company Messer will be exhibiting its dedicated 3D printing-related product line at leading additive manufacturing (AM) and industrial 3D printing event, Formnext, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany.

The product line, Addline, includes shielding gases, conveying gases and cooling gases used in the production, transportation and storage of powder materials. The gases are also used in the printing and heat treatment processes.

With AM rapidly increasing its reputation in the industrial gas sector, Addline aims to provide solutions to any stage of AM.

“Our gases cover all AM processes, regardless of whether they are single or multi-stage processes,” said Dirk Kampffmeyer, Application Technology Welding Manager, Messer.

The company’s solutions relate to three of the most pertinent metal printing processes: Powder Bed fusion – Laser Beam (PBF-LB), Direct Energy Deposition – Laser Beam (DEB-LB) and Direct Energy Deposition – Arc (DED-Arc), also known as Wire Arc AM (WAAM).

To be held from 16th – 19th November, the in-person trade fair will also feature ‘Formnext Digital Days’, an online event taking place from 30th November to 1st December, aimed at those who cannot attend the in-person event. Messer will be located at Stand D58 in Hall 12.0.
