The formal establishment of the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing began during POWDERMET2017: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials—Las Vegas in June 2017.
Companies with captive/in-plant metal AM operations, as well as those companies manufacturing such products for sale on the open market, material suppliers to those companies, and equipment suppliers that support the metal AM industry, are targeted for membership. Membership is limited to commercial entities and will not include academic institutions, government agencies, research-only organizations, or professional societies. These non-commercial entities are important and can contribute but their role will be ancillary.
Charter members of the association will be those companies that join AMAM between June, 2017–December, 2018. Funds paid in 2017 will be reflected as 2018 membership dues.
Charter Members dues are $5,000 per member company.
The first meeting of the AMAM Board of Directors, to be held during the MPIF PM Management Summit, Naples, Florida, October 21–24, 2017, will be open to all members of AMAM. The annual Summit attracts MPIF Official and Alternate Representatives from all associations.
