The Metal Powder Industries Federation is pleased to announce the inaugural conference on Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy (AMPM), May 18–20, 2014, Orlando, Florida. This new specialized conference will be co-located with the PM2014 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials and the Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference, which will all be taking place under one roof.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object by adding successive layers of material rather than by removing material by conventional methods such as cutting or drilling. The conference will focus on AM with powder metallurgy. Cochairmen Gregory Morris, GE Aviation, and Joseph Strauss, HJE Company, Inc., anticipate that presentations will include the perspective of metal powder producers, toll providers and end-users of these processes, R&D programs from academia and consortiums, and equipment manufacturers. Expected topics will include materials, applications, technical barriers, process economics, and new developments.
It is anticipated the conference will comprise six technical sessions, with three presentations in each. Presentation length will be approximately 25 minutes including questions. A Powerpoint (or equivalent) presentation is required; manuscript is optional. All presentations and manuscripts will be included in the AMPM conference proceedings. Additionally, manuscripts submitted to this program will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Powder Metallurgy’s Special Focus issue on Additive Manufacturing to be published in 2015. There will be a special discounted AMPM conference registration fee for speakers.
Anyone wishing to submit an abstract for consideration should send the title, abstract, and speaker information prior to October 1. Please submit this information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
