The Additive Manufacturing Conference at this year’s International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) saw nearly 500 attendees converge to hear 20 speakers share their knowledge and AM expertise. While it would be impossible to cover everything discussed, we’ve done our best to capture some key takeaways, presented in the November issue of this magazine starting on page 32.

Also in this issue:

  • Redesigning a diesel engine support for AM to achieve weight savings and other benefits;
  • A new means of reclaiming metal powder that is reducing waste and improving safety;
  • Considerations for integrating additive capability without inhibiting machining; and
  • A new polymer deposition technology that makes it possible to cleanly remove part supports by hand.
