The paper was selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the AMPM2022 conference in Portland and critically evaluated for the prestigious award.
The paper is available for download on the MPIF website. It is also included in Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials—2022. The authors will be officially recognized during PowderMet2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 18–21, 2023.
The Metal AM Outstanding Technical Paper Award was established in 2018 to recognize authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications. The award is for papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation and APMI International; to enhance the quality of technology transfer in the PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the conference; and, to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to additively manufactured powder metallurgy products, processes and materials.
Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: (1) the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review; (2) has clear presentation in writing, organization, graphics, format, and has professional integrity; (3) has clear industrial application; and (4) has long-term value.
