The launch issue of Metal Additive Manufacturing, the quarterly magazine for the metal Additive Manufacturing industry, is now available to download from the publication’s dedicated website, www.metal-am.com.
Available in both print (ISSN 2057-3014) and digital (ISSN 2055-7183) formats, Metal Additive Manufacturing brings together industry news and articles on technical and commercial developments in the industry. The publication of this new magazine follows the successful launch of the www.metal-am.com website in May 2014.
The 64 page launch issue includes a report on a recent visit to leading European metal AM parts producer Materials Solutions, based in Worcester, UK. Materials Solutions is a key supplier to the aerospace and high performance motorsport industries. In our exclusive report the company’s founder and Managing Director, Carl Brancher, shares his thoughts on the current status of the metal Additive Manufacturing industry and the opportunities and challenges ahead.
Also featured in this issue is an extensive report on component design considerations for powder bed fusion technologies. As Tim Richter, RSC Engineering GmbH, Germany, explains, this technology has the potential to fundamentally change the design process and appearance of new products. Designers must, however, be aware of all design considerations to maximise the potential of their products.
Jon Craxford, Sales Director at Inovar Communications, a publishing house with over twelve years of experience in the metal powder processing industries, commented, “We are delighted with the support that we have received from industry suppliers, component manufacturers, trade organisations and international industry events.”
The print edition of Metal Additive Manufacturing is available by subscription. The launch issue is also being distributed at AMPM 2015 (May 18-20, San Diego, USA), RAPID 2015 (May 18-21, Long Beach, USA), and the Rapid.Tech exhibition (June 10-11, Erfurt, Germany).
