The Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) machine pictured on this month’s cover is used by Lockheed Martin Space Systems to make propellant tanks for satellites. The powder-fed system enables building up near-net-shape metal parts as an alternative to forging. Learn more about EBAM technology from Sciaky in the story beginning on page 24.

Also in this issue:

  • A look at predictive simulation and its implications for additive manufacturing;
  • 10 lessons gleaned from the production of a metal additive part;
  • A study comparing the mechanical properties of DMLS to barstock parts; and
  • A report from the Additive Manufacturing Conference.
