The programme for the fifth annual Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference, AMPM2018, has been announced. Organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), AMPM2018, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, will take place June 17-20, 2018, at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Texas, USA.

The event also includes an exhibitor trade show in conjunction with POWDERMET2018: the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials. This year, the organisers have stated that AMPM will offer even more opportunities for education and networking. New for AMPM2018 will be:

  • An extra day of technical programming
  • Access to the co-located POWDERMET2018 conference and digital post-conference proceedings
  • Extended exhibit hall hours
  • Student poster sessions that allow students to present their work
  • A PM Evening Alehouse in the open exhibit hall for extended exhibitor networking
  • A closing event, now included in full conference registration – Boots and Blue Jeans: A Texas BBQ

“Metal Additive Manufacturing is the latest cutting-edge technology to impact the PM industry,” stated James P Adams, Executive Director/CEO, MPIF. “Metal AM is a natural fit for MPIF as we have supported the PM industry for nearly 75 years. We’re excited to offer an expanded AMPM conference that allows for more time for the transfer of technology, and to expose the metal AM sector to the greater PM industry through access to both AMPM and POWDERMET conferences.”
