RapidPro is the leading international trade fair featuring solutions for all phases of prototyping, (low-volume) production, and product development

Product development comes with specific challenges and choices. Which techniques are most suitable when your product concept goes into the prototyping phase and eventually, into production? Low-volume, rapid or on-demand production play an important role during this process. Especially when it comes to products that will not be mass produced, you want flexibility in your production process, or the possibility to manufacture customized batches. Flexibility is key, as is the ability to respond quickly to customers’ wishes and requirements. Which techniques do you choose and how do you integrate these into your existing processes?

At RapidPro, multiple additive manufacturing techniques are featured, such as 3D-printing, laser cladding, FDM, EBM and SLS, but also techniques such as CNC milling, casting, and vacuum forming. Solutions such as virtual prototyping, metrology, quality assurance and software are also not forgotten. At the 10th edition of RapidPro, which will be held on the 4th and the 5th of March 2020, you will discover the latest developments in these fields, with a special focus on ROI, materials, soft- and hardware, tooling and quality.

RapidPro 2020 will focus on solutions:

  •  for questions around ROI in Additive Manufacturing and prototyping; 
  •  for perfectioning the product design and design process;
  •  in the area of (small volume) production.

Focus on industrialization and tooling
Additive manufacturing is gaining more and more terrain within the industrial sector. Where until recently, this technique was mostly used in the making of prototypes, we now see a shift towards applications within production processes. In this way, customized products which used to be expensive and time-intensive to produce, such as prosthetics, bridges, and (parts of) vehicles, are now successfully produced through 3D-printing. More than 100 exhibitors and an extensive conference program will give you a complete overview of ways to successfully integrate these techniques into your production processes.

Participating in RapidPro 2020
Participating in RapidPro 2020 means you will have the opportunity to present your innovations, products, and brand to a very specific target audience: engineers, product developers, R&D managers/employees, designers and purchasers with an interest in product development, prototyping, additive & rapid manufacturing and customized production, and on-demand & flexible production. As an exhibitor, you can choose from an extensive range of stand and presentation possibilities. You will also have the opportunity to share your knowledge at the trade fair conference.
