Eight additive manufacturing (AM) organizations have joined the Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA), a global trade organization created to promote the environmental benefits of AM. This brings the trade group’s membership up to 20 current members.
Joining as a new founding member is ExOne, a provider of industrial 3D printing systems using binder jet 3D printing technology. As a founding member, ExOne will serve alongside existing founding members Sintavia LLC, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corp. and QC Laboratories Inc. to determine the strategic direction of the AMGTA, provide governance oversight and consider future research projects that members may vote to commission.
The new members will serve alongside existing participating members, which include AMEXCI AB, Danish AM Hub, EOS, GE Additive, Materialise, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, Siemens Digital Industries Software, SLM Solutions Inc. and Stryker.
“I’m excited to officially welcome ExOne aboard as a new founding member company of the AMGTA, as well as each of our new participating member organizations,” says Sherry Handel, executive director of the AMGTA. “Their dedication to support our trade group’s mission well positions the AMGTA for continued growth and helps to fund new sustainability research projects in additive manufacturing. I am looking forward to working with all of our members as we expand the AMGTA as a key industry resource in advancing sustainability in the AM industry this year and beyond.”
The AMGTA was launched in November 2019 to promote the environmental benefits of AM over traditional methods of manufacturing. The AMGTA is a non-commercial, unaffiliated organization open to any additive manufacturer or industry stakeholder that meets certain criteria relating to sustainability of production or process.
