The IAMF is a non-profit organisation dedicated to spreading AM technology among product designers, new product development, manufacturing engineering and R&D professionals, academicians, and bringing 3D printing in India up to speed with advanced countries.

The recent event was the sixth such gathering of industry players, experts, and leaders to discuss various aspects of technology and industry. The most recent edition featured prominent speakers who presented case studies highlighting the importance and benefits of Additive Manufacturing in their respective industries. The discussion centred on how their respective organisations or customers benefited from the advancement of AM technology.

The common theme to emerge from the sessions was how the additive manufacturing technology can be used together with the existing subtractive manufacturing technologies like injection moulding, casting and others to deliver unprecedented results, contrary to popular belief and hype that additive manufacturing technology will replace the traditional technologies.

Both, additive and subtractive technologies complement each other and help customers enjoy greater benefits that working alone.
