TCT Japan Tokyo

29. - 31. January 2025 | Trade fair for the use of 3D printing and additive manufacturing

The TCT Japan fair, formerly known as "3D Printing" in Tokyo, is a major professional event focusing on the innovative world of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. The name "TCT" stands for "Time Compression Technologies", symbolizing the acceleration and optimization of manufacturing processes through these advanced technologies. This annual event, usually held in February, is organized by JTB Communication Design, Inc. in collaboration with Rapid News Publications Ltd..

TCT Japan provides a comprehensive exhibition and demonstration of the latest developments in AM technology (Additive Manufacturing). It creates platforms where professionals and enthusiasts can learn about technologies that not only speed up the manufacturing process of new products but also drive technological development across numerous industries.

The fair covers a wide range of topics, including machinery and equipment such as 3D printers, 3D scanners, lightweight construction methods, and laser machines for model and tool making. Technologies for surface treatment and finishing, rapid tool provisioning, injection molding, and cutting techniques are also represented. Materials extend beyond plastics, metals, ceramics, and include hybrid, composite, and functional materials. Additionally, measuring and monitoring techniques with three-dimensional measuring devices, laser measurement technology, calibration, sensors, testing equipment, and optical measurement technology are showcased. The event also features software, from 3D visualization and CAD/CAM systems to 3D graphics and modeling software, as well as simulation software.

TCT Japan is held concurrently with other industry-related trade fairs, creating additional synergies for visitors and exhibitors. The venue is Tokyo Big Sight, the largest exhibition and convention center in Tokyo. Known for its unique architecture, it provides excellent infrastructure, extensive exhibition spaces, and state-of-the-art facilities, ideally suited to support the dynamic and innovative atmosphere of the fair.

The fair is distinguished by its diversity and focus on cutting-edge technologies that have a significant impact on various industrial sectors. It offers an excellent opportunity for professionals from around the world to network, discover the latest technologies, and foster business relationships. TCT Japan is thus an important meeting point for all interested in the latest developments in the world of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

The TCT Japan will take place on 3 days from Wednesday, 29. January to Friday, 31. January 2025 in Tokyo.
