EPMA and the EuroAM Sectoral Group have launched the second edition of its Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Technology booklet. This new edition, which was launched at the Euro PM2017 Congress in Milan, Italy, expands on the original version by providing updated and improved case studies from a range of different industries, as well as updating some of the technical content from the first edition.

The first edition was originally launched in 2013 by the EuroAM.

The new 56-page edition includes content from over 90 contributors and now has over 50 case studies and contains three new chapters covering HIP post processing, non destructive testing for AM parts and powder handling and safety areas of focus

'This is a great booklet for potential users of the additive manufacturing (AM) process, as it provides a neutral view of the main AM processes available to date,' said Andrew Almond, EPMA's marketing manager.
