How do we use Additive Manufacturing to fight the COVID19 and climate crisis,
and what can we learn from our American friends?

Join us in a 1-hour webinar where we will learn from the experiences in the US who has some of the world’s strongest AM-suppliers and developers.

John Wilczynski, CEO at America Makes, explains how AM turned out to be an important weapon during the corona crisis. Millions of 3D printed items were printed and shipped to the front line in American hospitals. Hear how America Makes managed to create a completely new process for approval of 3D printed parts and components and how they created a digital platform that connected demand from the hospital side with the supply side from skilled American AM experts.
America Makes is a public-private partnership with member organizations from industry, academia, government, non-government agencies, and workforce and economic development resources. They are working together to innovate and accelerate AM and 3DP to increase our nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness.

Also, Sherry Handel, CEO at Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA), presents her overall thoughts on advancing environmental sustainability in Additive Manufacturing and will share key takeaways from the organization’s recently published report, the State of Knowledge on the Impacts of Metal Additive Manufacturing. Learn about the importance of rigorous, independent, and ongoing research focused on sustainability in AM and the AMGTA’s upcoming life-cycle assessment (LCA) projects.
The AMGTA is a new global trade group created to promote the environmental benefits of additive manufacturing (AM). The AMGTA seeks to educate its members, industry, and the public about these positive environmental benefits of AM and promote the adoption of AM as an alternative to traditional manufacturing.
