EWI is pleased to announce that the Additive Manufacturing Consortium (AMC) will host its spring meeting at EOS North America’s Pflugerville (Texas) Technical Center.
The meeting at EOS is scheduled for April 19-20, 2017, with the members-only meeting on the 19th and a general meeting planned for the 20th. “EOS has been a great supporter of the AMC for many years,” said Frank Medina, Additive Manufacturing (AM) Technology Leader at EWI and Director of the AMC. “They’ve provided a lot of knowledge that has helped with many AMC projects and helped advanced metal AM across all industry sectors.”
The general meeting will include a full agenda of technical presentations from a wide variety of organizations, as well as a tour of the EOS facility.
Medina oversees AM activities at EWI, where he is committed to helping companies adapt and integrate the technology into their manufacturing operations. He joined EWI in early 2016 and has played a key role in building world-class AM capabilities and technology at EWI.
The AMC was established in 2010 as a national consortium of industry, government, academia, and nonprofit research organizations. Consisting of 36 member companies, the AMC has funded projects that have included Inconel 625, Inconel 718, and Monel 400 theme development, heat treatment optimization, machine variability, and design allowable database generation. Members have access to $2.2 million in project funding. Four tiers of AMC membership are available that include end-user, nonprofit, small business and supplier, and university and government research partners.
