EPMA launches Second Edition of its Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Technology brochure

October 17, 2017

EPMA launches Second Edition of its Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Technology bookletThe European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has launched the Second Edition of its Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Technology brochure. The new edition, produced in collaboration with the EuroAM Sectoral Group, was launched at Euro PM2017 Congress & Exhibition in Milan and looks to expand on the original edition by providing updated and enhanced case studies from a range of different industries.

The First Edition of the Introduction to Additive Manufacturing was originally launched in 2013 by the EuroAM Group and has since been widely distributed and downloaded from the EPMA’s website, as well as being distributed at a number of promotional events throughout Europe and beyond.

The new 56-page edition includes content from over ninety contributors and contains more than fifty case studies. The following new chapters have also been added:

  • HIP post processing
  • Non-destructive testing for AM parts
  • Powder handling & safety areas of focus

Andrew Almond, EPMA Marketing Manager, stated, “This is a great booklet for potential users of the Additive Manufacturing process, as it provides a neutral view of the main AM processes available to date. It is with great thanks to Adeline Riou, Claus Aumund-Kopp, the original authors of the first edition, that the newly revised edition has been able to be produced. Without the EuroAM’s commitment and enthusiasm the first edition would not have been made, or even updated!”

The brochure can be downloaded in PDF format via the EPMA website.
