Metal Powder-based Additive Manufacturing

Wednesday 10th October

The aim of this meeting which is dedicated to metal powder-based additive manufacturing (AM), is to provide a platform for technical discussion of areas related to metal powder based AM processes and to encourage better communication and co-operation between leading and upcoming academics and industrialists in the field. The programme is open to all metal powder based AM processes, including selective laser melting, electron beam melting and direct energy deposition.

Laser stability and control are central to recent advances in metal AM machine speed and the quality of resulting parts; thus an added aim of this programme is to encourage greater interaction between those involved in laser systems, optics and laser-powder interactions and those applying such laser systems in AM processes.

The programme will aim to bring together users of metal AM from both industry and academia for a day of talks and discussion, with a poster session on metal AM research in the afternoon.


This meeting is an opportunity for you to contribute to research knowledge, to meet with like-minded researchers, with industry scientists and for you to be able to network at a high level.

Our aim is that the main meeting programme is a combination of invited and contributed talks from leaders in this field combined with contributions from students and early career scientists who are researching novel and exciting new techniques or unique applications.

We invite contributions for consideration for both the main programme and the poster session. Posters will be located inside the PHOTONEX exhibition for maximum exposure, impact and to enhance the networking opportunity.
