“Additive Manufacturing European Forum“ Albert Borschette Congress Center in Brussels 9th November (9.00-18.00h).
The AM European Forum 2016 was born from two strategic H2020 Coordinated Support Actions: “AM-Motion: A strategic approach to increasing Europe’s value proposition for Additive Manufacturing technologies and capabilities” and “FoFAM: Industrial and Regional Valorization of FoF AM projects”, and counts with the endorsement of the AM Platform. The event will be held with inclusion of the 18th AM-Platform meeting.
The event will bring together policy makers, industry leaders, small to medium-sized enterprises, as well as universities, research and technology centres and other key stakeholders. The debate on the economic, social and technical challenges urging to be solved can accelerate the AM market uptake in the digitalisation era.
Additive Manufacturing capabilities mapping: JOIN THE AM DATABASE!!
Do you want to find out what are the latest AM developments coming from R&D&I projects? Who has experience or would like to use AM technologies? Which regions have AM in their Smart specialization strategies? Do you want your organisation to appear if someone is looking for strategic partners? …..and more?
Just join the new AM database service, your one stop shop for Additive Manufacturing.
To have a global overview of existing knowledge, research and technology capabilities and regional strategies around AM, FoFAM H2020 project has developed an e-tool to gather information on existing projects, regional strategies and R&D programs and actors around these technologies. The main aim is to facilitate the stakeholders realising alliances and collaborations for R&D or business purposes towards potential partners and detect synergies and complementariness in order to avoid duplication and establish coordinated actions.
The tool, which comes in the form of a database, follows the sectorial value chain approach established in the FoFAM project, being possible to group the information around key sectors for the AM deployment in Europe. This in-depth approach, allows, for example, clustering the information around particular VC segments (modelling, design, material, process…) or even around a type of AM process or material.
Would you like to be part of it? Please select the most suitable template* for you. Fill it in and send us the info. We will upload it on the website.
The database is available at the European Technology Platform on Additive Manufacturing “AM-Platform” website (www.AM-platform.com). To access it, it is necessary that the user is registered and logs in as a member of the AM Platform.

1st official public RepAIR workshop at Euromold 2014
we would like to invite you to our 1st official public RepAIR workshop at Euromold 2014 in Frankfurt a.M. On the 28th of November we will present an overview of current results of all work packages.
The RepAIR project follows an holistic approach to support the entire supply chain by integrating Additive Manufacturing as a new option for the repair of aircraft parts. The workshop will be structured along a storyline from part lifetime prediction and failure estimation, decision support for MRO, the actual AM technologies to overarching topics like certification. Please find attached the complete programme of the workshop. As a core element of the RepAIR approach, you are kindly invited to explore a first version of our high batch repair solution at the booth of SLM Solution. The RepAIR team will be represented during the whole Euromold fair at the DMRC booth in hall 11, stand C90.
We are looking forward to meet you in Frankfurt and to receive your feedback on our intermediary outcomes and plans for the second project phase! Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of any question or remark.
Eric Klemp, Jens Pottebaum and Rainer Koch

AM-Platform informal meeting November 27th at Euromold 2014 Frankfurt
Many meetings and events are planned the last months of the year: Euromold, Brookerages, national events, ... Based on this we decided that it would be too busy to organize a full day AM-Platform meeting as we are used to. It is shifted to Spring – Jan – Feb 2015 (details to follow). However, we want to provide an opportunity to meet with you and discuss new H2020 project ideas, recent developments and trends in AM and beyond.
On behalf of the AM-Platform management board, I kindly invite you to attend the informal AM-Platform meeting which will be held at Euromold in Frankfurt. We will meet for a chat, drink and snack on Thursday November 27th from 15.00 on at the TNO booth in Hall 11 Stand 132 on Euromold 2014 Frankfurt.
We look forward to meeting you there and exchange latest ideas and news & achievements!
With kind regards on behalf of the AM-Platform,
