World PM 2016: metal Additive Manufacturing papers reveal directions of current research

The World PM2016 Congress & Exhibition takes place in Hamburg, Germany, from October 9-13, 2016. The event, organised by the European Powder Metallurgy Association, includes more than 450 keynote, oral, poster and special interest presentations.

A significant section of the congress is devoted to metal Additive Manufacturing and over the following pages we list all metal AM presentations as published in the World PM2016 Technical Programme. Note that additional relevant presentations for those in the metal AM industry can also be found in separate sessions relating to powder manufacture, powder characterisation etc.
