New website arriving in December!

Elementum 3D New WebsiteWe are pleased to announce that a new Elementum 3D website will be launched before the end of 2021. We have redesigned the site with clean lines, branded shapes, open spaces, and most importantly, simplified site navigation —­ enhancing our visitor’s online experience. We understand the importance of providing the additive manufacturing community a wide range of materials and services and having a more intuitive site enables them to find the information they are searching for within a few clicks.

Our new website represents an investment in the continuous effort to provide world-class results at every customer touch point. We hope you will enjoy our new site when it goes live in the next few weeks.

Exchanging ideas on-site at FormNext 2021!

Formnext-November 16-19 2021On-line/virtual trade shows may be an effective route when there is a global pandemic, but unfortunately, they simply do not measure up to in-person events and face-to-face interactions. Missing is the human connection, body language, and most of all, the ability to hold and inspect a cool part!

Elementum 3D is thrilled to be exhibiting on-site at Formnext, the world’s leading Additive Manufacturing trade fair, and welcomes the opportunity to build new relationships and deepen existing ones. Our team of materials experts are eager to exchange ideas with attendees and discuss how those ideas might resonate with our technologies, products, and services.

Please contact us for complementary tickets if you are planning on attending the event. Formnext 2021 will be held at Messe Frankfurt Hall 12 on November 16-19 in Frankfurt, Germany. We look forward to seeing you at our booth – 12.1-E18.
