Following the successful AMEF 2016 conference two weeks ago, we would like to ask you for your professional input as an AM expert.
As you might know in the FoFAM EU project which was presented at AMEF 2016, we are elaborating a roadmap for the implementation of AM. This roadmap was developed around 4 main sectors and value chain segments. Both technological and non-technological actions (eg. Standardisation, education..) are included separated by sector or applying to all (cross-cutting).
Please find attached the draft document for your consultation, containing the AM gaps, and possible actions to tackle them, identified with the collaborations with AM Experts.
We would appreciate that you check it , let us know if you find the doc ok or not and provide possible comments /inputs up to December 2nd. Of course, you can focus in all actions or in the specific areas according your expertise. Please use track changes /other color.
With all comments receive we will produce the last version at the end of the year. This will be the starting point of AM-motion project roadmap.
Many thanks for your collaboration in advance,
Paula Queipo Coordinator FoFAM Frits Feenstra Coordinator AM-Platform
Dear participant of the EC Additive Manufacturing workshop 2014,
The Report from the workshop is now publicly available. It will be also available soon at our web page. In the meantime, please feel free to distribute it to whoever you think may have an interest on it. Please download it from here
Your comments about the report and contributions will also be welcomed.

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,
Frits Feenstra Coordinator
NB: for organizational purposes, we would appreciate a note on your attendance and possibly dietary needs!
BEST: Brokerage event for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015
BEST is the brokerage event for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015. It is organized by the European Technology Integrating and Innovation Platform on Nanotechnology NANOfutures with the collaboration of the European Platforms for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies EUMAT and Manufacturing, MANUFUTURE.
The event will be held at Egmont Palace in
Brussels on November 13rd 2014
and will be opened by the European Commission.
It is for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015 including all the coming topics, also those from PPPs FoF, EeB and Spire ones.
It is free of charge. However, space is limited so attendance is restricted to one person per entity. Subscriber’s selection will be done observing the need for a balanced participation from industries and research entities and the priority to earlier applications. Final acceptances will be sent around october.
A laser beam that melts metal powder at exactly the right point just one example of 3D printing in the industry.
Components are created from metal and alloys layer by layer exactly as shown on the computer blueprint. Corporate Technology in Berlin is currently focusing on this laser sintering process. It is already in use at Energy in Finspong in Sweden for repairing gas turbine burners a possible revolution in the service sector. And a team in Munich-Perlach is using 3D printers to plan new manufacturing facilities as intuitively as possible.
GE is excited to be launching two additive manufacturing quests that invite entrepreneurs, companies and institutions to offer their solutions to two additive manufacturing challenges:3D Printing Design Quest 3D Printing Production Quest: High Precision and Advanced Materials.
Additive manufacturing is a key part of the advanced manufacturing revolution. With additive techniques, we can transform the things we make and the way we make them, significantly reduce production times and achieving cost savings without sacrificing performance. GE is already putting additive technologies to work on an industrial scale, and through external collaboration will accelerate the application of these technologies.
The quests, launched in partnership with GrabCAD and NineSigma, are both open to the public. The first phase of both quests will be open from June 11, 2013 to July 26, 2013.
