Kurtz Ersa Additive Manufacturing's second participation in the leading trade fair for additive manufacturing was a complete success. The still young division of the Kurtz Ersa corporation used the trade fair for intensive networking.

Kurtz at Formnext 2022: great interest in Alpha 140 and Flying Ray component
A lot going on at the Kurtz booth: New options for Alpha 140 and a component of the Flying Ray met with great interest

For four days in November, Messe Frankfurt transformed into the center for additive manufacturing (AM). Formnext offers the vibrant and dynamic AM industry with its numerous innovative companies a platform for exchange and presentation of interesting 3D printing applications. Four halls of the fairground were open to visitors. Kurtz Ersa exhibited its Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) solutions on 80 m2 under the motto "PAP – Perfect Angle Printing", offering customers a unique technology in terms of quality.


Compact entry-level Alpha 140 printer

Exhibits included the Alpha 140 metal 3D printer – equipped with the new options of integrated depowdering and integrated nitrogen generator – and a first printed part of the Flying Ray. As always, the Kurtz Ersa Alpha 140 was of interest to all visitor groups as a compact entry-level printer. The Alpha 140 was correspondingly surrounded during the demo operation as well as the small sample parts that have been travelled from the Spessart region to the city. The sample parts were the icebreaker and helped to open numerous conversations. There was great interest especially in the large-format 3D component of the Flying Ray, a motorcycle swing, presented courtesy of RWTH Aachen University – Digital Additive Production DAP. The part takes up about a third of the Flying Ray´s possible printable build platform. The component gives an idea of the spheres in which the Flying Ray will be able to print in the future.

Strong team with a strong customer focus

As a relative newcomer to the industry, our AM division took advantage of the "socializing" factor: At our booth, a barista pampered visitors with Italian coffee specialties – the offer was very well received, and many more contacts were made as a result.


Ralph Knecht, CEO of the Kurtz Ersa corporation, and Managing Director of the AM division, sums up with satisfaction: "Our second trade fair participation was an absolute must for our new division with start-up character. We are pleased that our colleagues have already grown together into such a strong team. After such a short time, they are already very confident and successful in sales. Meanwhile, our R&D department is doing a great job working in the background and the trade fair visitors can already look forward to a brilliant appearance next year.”
