The Additive Manufacturing Conference, the annual gathering focused on industrial manufacturing applications of 3D printing technology, returned this year to the largest manufacturing event in North America, the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS).

That show is where the AM Conference originated. It began as a half-day workshop at IMTS just two years ago, expanding in scope the following year when it was held in Knoxville, Tennessee, in conjunction with Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

This year’s conference was the most extensive so far. Nearly 500 manufacturing leaders from well-known OEMs in industries including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, power and consumer goods, as well as smaller firms serving these industries and others, all came to hear 20 speakers share their knowledge and experience of additive manufacturing in an information-packed program that somehow fit into one and a half days.

Recapping the conference is impossible. But in recognition of the value of the conference this year, Additive Manufacturing’s editors have tried to capture at least some of the information. On the pages linked below are samples of what all the AM2016 speakers had to say.

Save the date:

The Additive Manufacturing 2017 Conference will return to Knoxville, Tennessee, October 10-12. For more information, watch additiveconference.com.
