Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Guiding the Future of the Metal AM Industry

Welcome to the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing


A comprehensive website dedicated to the advancement of powder-based metal additive manufacturing (metal AM), also known as three-dimensional (3D) printing. Here you can learn more about what this powder metallurgy (PM) based metal additive manufacturing process is and how it is used.

We cover the following topics:

  • Different powder-based metal AM Build processes – Powder Bed Fusion, Binder-Jetting, Directed Energy Deposition, Hybrid
  • Materials – Alloys, elements, and particle characterization
  • Applications – Aerospace, medical, automotive, industrial, tooling, and others
  • Case Studies & Award-winning metal AM components
  • Advantages – Why and when you should consider metal AM    

The Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing's (AMAM) main mission is to increase the visibility and stature of metal AM within the industrial community, and to enhance the metal AM industry's opportunities for continued growth. Its objectives include establishing best practices to provide safe metal AM environments, organizing educational programs, supporting research and development, developing and expediting standards, collecting useful industry statistics, and establishing an industry wide approach to marketing the technology.
