Additive Manufacturing Conference and Expo Coming to Austin
The 2019 event will highlight advances in additive technology, best practices for implementation and case studies. The expanded schedule includes networking and facility tours of EOS and Essentium.
Registration is now open for the Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo (AMC 2019), scheduled for August 27-29, 2019. This year, the event is making its first trip to Austin, Texas, at the Austin Convention Center. The event will feature more speakers, exhibitors and networking opportunities than ever before, including tours of Essentium and EOS headquarters. Attendees and media can register now.
“Austin is a boomtown for additive technology,” says Dave Necessary, event director. “The area is home to major 3D equipment manufacturers and hundreds of shops using additive technology. SLS was invented at the University of Texas at Austin. Hosting AMC 2019 there is a perfect fit for demonstrating how far the technology has come and how far it can go.”
With a program curated by the editors of sister brand Additive Manufacturing Media, the Additive Manufacturing Conference and Expo focuses on industrial applications of 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts.
“The adoption rate of 3D printing technology in production has been exponential,” notes Justin Combs, marketing manager. “Expanding the show this year allows us to address that growth and ensure that we are providing the best possible content for our audience.”
- Production at scale
- Large-format 3D printing
- Post processing
- Supply chain
Speakers include HP, GE Aviation, Velo 3D, Hirtenberger, Triditive 3D, Evolve, BigRep, Forecast 3D and more. In addition to technical insights on the current state of additive manufacturing, speakers will discuss the future impact and potential applications of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

A new metal AM system for batches of end-use parts was designed to permit productivity and machine pricing comparable to a CNC machine tool.
Manufacturers now succeeding with additive manufacturing are beginning to see what its ultimate impact might be. Here are ideas about the reach that AM will have, and the kinds of changes and advances it will enable.
