International Additive Manufacturing Award announced

October 8, 2014

The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT) based in the USA and the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken (VDW) have announced a partnership to present an International Additive Manufacturing Award.   

The award, to be presented annually beginning in 2015, will recognise innovations in Additive Manufacturing (AM) for industrial applications. This includes developments in the design of systems or major components, advances in processes or materials, new applications, data generation or measurement.

Those in the industry, such as system producers, users, component suppliers, and data modelers, and international academia will be invited to apply. The inaugural winner will be announced at an award dinner at The MFG Meeting, Manufacturing for Growth, taking place March 4-7 in Orlando, Florida.  

In 2016, the award will be presented at the METAV, the international fair for manufacturing technology and automation, in February in Düsseldorf, Germany.  

“It is clear that the advances in Additive Manufacturing will change forever the landscape of manufacturing, from the innovators of the technology to the users and consumers. Our collaboration with the VDW will spotlight some of the most innovative and impactful players driving this dynamic industry,” stated AMT President  Douglas K Woods.

The winner will receive a $20,000 cash prize and a media package valued at $80,000 to promote the winning development.
