The TCT Group has officially launched its call for papers for this year’s TCT Conference @ Formnext, the annual user-led summit dedicated to additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing technology.

Taking place on 16-19th November, the TCT Conference @ Formnext brings together captivating keynotes, presentations and panel sessions from industry-leading users to educate and inspire a global audience of delegates on the latest industry developments and AM applications.
