The European Powder Metallurgy Association has announced that as of January 2017 its European Additive Manufacturing Group (EAMG) will be re-named EuroAM. The sectoral group will continue to cover the same industry sector as the EAMG, focussing on metal Additive Manufacturing.
The change of name is an attempt to further raise awareness of the group and its activities on a Europe-wide basis. Members of the EAMG felt that the current group name did not reflect this strategic objective strongly enough.
“This is a great opportunity for the EuroAM group to be positioned as leading the AM future in Europe,” stated Andrew Almond, EPMA’s Marketing Manager. “2017 will see the EAMG sectoral group name change across all EPMA branding and websites.”
The group is co-chaired by Ralf Carlström, Höganäs AB, Sweden, and Claus Aumund-Kopp, Fraunhofer IFAM, Germany. Areas of activity for the group include promotion, research & technology development, training and standardisation.
