The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), through the collaboration of its EuroAM Sectoral Group, has launched the third edition of the Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Technology booklet.

According to the EPMA, the new edition builds on the previous versions by further expanding the depth and range of case studies from several industries, as well as providing an update of the technology and new non-destructive testing processes.

The revised, sixty-eight-page edition features over sixty case studies and contains new and revised content on the following topics:

  • Overview of standardisation activities in the field of Additive Manufacturing
  • Metal Binder Jetting and Sintering
  • Non-Destructive Testing for AM parts – Ultrasonic Testing

“This is still a great introductory booklet for potential users of the Additive Manufacturing process, as it provides a neutral view of the main AM processes and how to get the most out of this new manufacturing process” explained Andrew Almond, EPMA’s Marketing Manager. “It is with great thanks to Adeline Riou and Claus Aumund-Kopp, who are the main drivers of these editions, that the newly revised edition has been able to be produced, as well as the support of the EuroAM Sectoral Group, to highlight the components that can be manufactured through the AM processes.”

Copies of the third edition can be ordered by emailing Andy Cormack: [email protected] or a PDF copy is available to download via the association’s website.
