EPMA launches new European Additive Manufacturing Group

May 8, 2013

As a result of discussions between members of the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) who are active across the Additive Manufacturing (AM) supply chain, it has been formally agreed that the EPMA will launch a new sectoral group with immediate effect.

To be called the European Additive Manufacturing Group (EAMG) its objectives will be fourfold:

  • To increase the awareness of the Additive Manufacturing technology, with a special focus on metal powder based products.
  • To enable the benefits of joint action, for example through research programmes, workshops, benchmarking and exchange of knowledge.
  • To improve the understanding of the benefits of metal based AM technology by end users, designers, mechanical engineers, metallurgists and students.
  • To assist in the development of International standards for the AM Sector.

There will be two co-chairmen of the group and in the first instance these will be Ralf Carlström of Höganäs AB Sweden and Claus Aumund-Kopp from Fraunhofer IFAM, Germany. They will coordinate activities in several areas including Conferences & Workshops, Promotion Activities, Technical Research Programs, Training and Standardisation work.

It is anticipated that the EAMG will hold meetings regularly and it will be open to companies and organisations across the supply chain who are or will become members of the EPMA.
