TCT Japan 2022: What to expect from Japan’s premier 3D printing event


The additive manufacturing and 3D printing industry will meet in Tokyo next week TCT Japan returns to Tokyo Big Sight.

Since its inception in 2015, the event, formerly known as 3D Printing Japan, has established itself as the country’s most influential event for additive manufacturing intelligence.

Leading companies like Formlabs, GE Additive, nTopology and materialize will take place from January 26 to 28 to present its latest technologies, products and applications.

Visitors will be able to see equipment such as JEOLThe JAM-5200EBM Electron Beam Metal System and Hoganas‘Digital Metal 3D Printer alongside materials from carpenter’s additive and TANIOBIS, and software solutions, post-processing technologies and AM research from leading technological institutes.

The TCT conference

Alongside the exhibition are two stages packed with expert AM content: the TCT Lecture Stage and the TCT Intro Stage.

The Conference Stage is TCT Japan’s premier content platform and will host conferences covering the three areas of AM adoption: assessment, adoption, and optimization.

Day one will assess business considerations for AM with presentations from Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting on global trends and challenges of 3D printing in Japan, and Yano Research Institute on how COVID-19 will change the Japanese domestic AM market.

On day two, an array of case studies and application examples will show how AM is being adopted for everything from building a decentralized medical device through Hiroshima University to the development of a heat exchanger by TAMACHI INDUSTRIES Co., Ltd.. This year, a collaboration with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), the Kansai office will also see the afternoon portion of the conference supported by METI for a track focused on the digitization of manufacturing with speakers from A M To flow, EOS, GE Additive, materialize and Siemens.

The final day of the conference will focus on optimizing 3D printing with breakthroughs in nano 3D printing from Yokohama National University and trends of AM plasma powder processing since the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

For visitors wishing to experience the latest AM product developments, the TCT Showcase Stage will feature three days of vendor presentations including Mimaki, TRUMPF, BIKE3D and more.

TCT Japan 2022 will be held from January 26 to 28, 2022 at Tokyo Big Sight East Hall 5.
