FasTech LLC is delighted to now be a member of the Additive Manufacturing Consortium (AMC). Founded in 2010, by EWI, the consortium brings together more than 50 members worldwide with the goal of accelerating the manufacturing readiness of metal additive manufacturing technology.
AMC members are drawn from global industry, including aerospace and heavy equipment manufacturers, research and development organisations, government agencies and academia and provides an important forum for collaboration, pre-competitive research projects, partnerships on government funding opportunities and high-quality networking within the industry.
A large proportion of AMC’s income is invested in research initiatives with current 2022 projects including the continued assessment of additive manufacturing technologies, low angle printing without supports and the optimization of process parameters for thin wall structures.
“We are extremely proud to be a member of the Additive Manufacturing Consortium,” explains Alan Pearce, CEO of FasTech. “As a US-based middle market metal additive manufacturing company, our sector experience should provide some useful insights to other members at the quarterly meetings and help shape the technical research projects undertaken going forward. With this in mind, we are particularly pleased to be joining the Summer Meeting in Buffalo on the 3rd and 4th August and having the opportunity to present on “3D Metal Printing Applications When using Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) Technology”. Our presentation will highlight some of FasTech’s recent experiences plus provide a number of practical case studies on reverse engineering, 3D metal printing and post machining operations when using WAAM as the foundational printing technology.”
