 PDF Key takeaways: Hannover Messe, April 2018, proved a perfect stage for Siemens AG Group and Siemens PLM Software to prove what’s available with Additive Manufacturing (AM). Siemens, the largest of 5,000 exhibitors covering 27 halls, had significant presence in both Hall 6 for Digital Factory solutions and Hall 9 for Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives. Customers expectations of AM are changing; they are now asking Siemens what’s possible with AM in production. Siemens is well positioned to help customers answer this question. Proof that AM is turning industrial and is all digital came from a visit to small engineering services firm Toolcraft GmbH from Georgensgmünd Germany. Using Siemens NX and Metal Laser Melting (MLM) equipment, they serve a global customer base including leading US house-hold name aerospace companies. Analyst Event A group of AM industry analysts from around the world were privileged to attend a series of events built around the annual Hannover Messe industrial
