The Additive Manufacturing Conference (AMC) 2016, presented by Additive Manufacturing magazine, has announced its complete lineup of technical sessions. The two-day event will offer attendees unique ways to connect with leading suppliers, end-users and researchers of industrial applications of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies.

The AMC program includes 20 technical sessions examining design, material, machinery and applications technology used in metal AM. Specific topics include lightweighting, robotic AM, combined additive/subtractive manufacturing, software and automation.

The conference takes place alongside the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at Chicago, Illinois’ McCormick Place, September 13 and 14. Registration to the conference includes access to the more than 2,000 exhibiting companies at IMTS.

The conference is dedicated to exploring the ways that additive technologies can be implemented in an industrial setting, offering technical insights on AM technologies past and present, as well as the future impact and potential applications of emerging technologies. In addition to the technical sessions, attendees will have access to the more than 20 sponsors who will be showcased in the exhibit/networking room. 


  • The New Pattern for Prototyping

    Ford is building engineering confidence through nearly production-ready prototype parts, which provide reliable test data—all thanks to additive manufacturing.

  • Metal AM in a Machine Shop? Ask the Marines

    A hybrid system combining metal 3D printing with machining gives the Marine Corps perhaps its most effective resource yet for obtaining needed hardware in the field. It also offers an extreme version of the experience a machine shop might have in adding metal AM to its capabilities.

  • Meeting the Machining Challenges of Additive Manufacturing

    You can 3D print the part, but can you finish it? Here is how to overcome the challenge of part deflection in the machining of lightweight, complex AM parts.
