BARCELONA, Spain, October 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Robotics, moulds and dies, new materials and plastic transformers will be presented alongside 3D printing in the 3rd edition of IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions, which reaffirms its industrial profile. Organised by Fira de Barcelona, the event will be held from October 16-18 in Exhibition Hall 8 of the Montjuïc fair site. It will include representatives from leading companies in the use of this innovative technology, who will interact with the 90 exhibiting companies.
The 3rd edition of IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions will expand its influence across the industrial ecosystem, expanding the sectors present in the first two editions. To this end, the event will address five subjects (advanced manufacturing, moulds and dies, new materials, plastic transformers and 3D printing), around which the content of the event will be based.
The event, which will include the collaboration of Leitat, Tecnalia and IAM3DHUB as strategic partners, will be structured around the IN(3D)USTRY Arena, a large area for innovation including a stage where 40 representatives from companies from 5 sectors (health, aeronautics, industry, automotive and retail) will present manufacturers with challenges for the future. In turn, manufacturers will offer solutions to these sectors' needs and will share success stories and potential applications for this technology throughout the world of industry.
