The Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA) has been joined by a further eight AM organisations, including equipment makers, material suppliers and research centres. The non-commercial, unaffiliated association, was launched in 2019 to promote the environmental benefits of Additive Manufacturing over traditional manufacturing. It is open to any manufacturer of, or industry stakeholder in, AM that meets sustainability criteria.

The ExOne Company, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, has joined the ranks as a Founding Member, alongside already-established founding members Sintavia, LLC and its advanced non-destructive testing subsidiary QC Laboratories, both headquartered in Hollywood, Florida, USA, and Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (part of Nippon Sanso Holdings Corporation), Tokyo, Japan. These co-founders determine the strategic direction of the AMGTA, provide governance oversight and consider future research projects which will be subject to member voting.

Joining the AMGTA as Participating Members are BASF 3D Printing Solutions, Heidelberg, Germany; polymer AM specialist Dye Mansion, Planegg-München, Germany; Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT), Aachen, Germany; HP, Inc, San Jose, California, USA; Rusal America, Rye Brook, New York, USA; Trumpf, Ditzingen, Germany, and 6K, North Andover, Massachusetts, USA.

“I’m excited to officially welcome ExOne aboard as a new Founding Member company of the AMGTA, as well as each of our new Participating Member organisations,” commented Sherry Handel, Executive Director of the AMGTA. “Their dedication to support our trade group’s mission well-positions the AMGTA for continued growth and helps to fund new sustainability research projects in Additive Manufacturing. I am looking forward to working with all of our members as we expand the AMGTA as a key industry resource in advancing sustainability in the AM industry this year and beyond.”
