The presentation, titled “Navigating the Metal Additive Manufacturing Landscape”, will be given on Wednesday, June 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and will reflect on new opportunities and challenges provided by metal Additive Manufacturing. Looking at metal AM as an evolving industry, the presentation will outline some of the ways large and small companies are tackling the ever-changing field of metal part creation.

Featuring a blend of industry updates, trends and insights, plus commentary on the difference between reality and hyperbole in industry forecasts, Grimm’s discussion will also cover technologies, suppliers, applications, barriers and overall adoption levels.

The International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials will feature presentations from over 200 worldwide PM industry experts on PM, particulate materials and metal Additive Manufacturing. All full-conference POWDERMET2017 attendees will also have access to the co-located AMPM2017: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference.

In the exhibit hall, over 100 booths will present leading international companies, featuring the latest equipment, powders, products, and services. Inovar Communications will exhibit its three industry magazines, PM Review, Metal AM and PIM International.

A full conference programme is available on MPIF’s website.
