Metal Additive Manufacturing Symposium 2022

Conferences 30 November 2022

Metal Additive Manufacturing Symposium

The 7th Metal Additive Manufacturing Symposium will be held at TWI’s headquarters in Cambridge, with an opportunity to tour our state-of-the-art AM laboratories.

This is a unique forum that provides the opportunity for professionals to share and develop scientific and technical knowledge on additive manufacturing technology. It is intended for technical managers, research and development staff, designers, and production staff who are actively involved in additive manufacturing, or who have a strong interest in the subject.

This event will also be livestreamed.

A programme will be released shortly.
