Additive Manufacturing to feature prominently at Euro PM2014 Conference, Austria

July 21, 2014


The Euro PM2014 Conference and Exhibition, organised by European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will take place in Salzburg, Austria, 21-24 September 2014. This year’s event will include an increased focus on metal Additive Manufacturing with three dedicated technical sessions and a Special Interest Seminar on the subject.

As well as the inclusion of metal AM in the technical programme, the EPMA’s European Additive Manufacturing Group (EAMG) will host an open meeting during the event. The EAMG was launched in May 2013 is open to companies and organisations across the whole supply chain.

The sessions on metal Additive Manufacturing include the following presentations:
