A number of companies specialising in metal Additive Manufacturing have formed the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing (AMAM), after formal establishment began during POWDERMET2017. Housed under the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), the new association is now open to charter membership applications.

The AMAM Board of Directors met with charter members during the recent MPIF PM Management Summit in Naples, Florida, USA, in October, to discuss and vote on association bylaws, as well as to form four committees. The committees are as follows:

  • Environmental, Health & Safety: Initial priorities will be safe powder handling, and the identification and distribution of safety/health information to member companies
  • Marketing: Initial priorities will be gathering information from end users on high-priority commercialisation priorities, the development of case studies to show additive strengths and capabilities, and the development of an AMAM-specific website
  • Membership: Initial priority will be to identify and pursue prospective members for AMAM
  • Technical: This group will focus on standards development and technical outreach to the AMAM member companies and end users

Charter members of the association will be those companies that join AMAM between June, 2017–December, 2018. The official launch of the association is set for January 1, 2018. Interested companies can learn more about AMAM and how to join via the association’s website.
