2016 International Additive Manufacturing Award Competition Launches
September 22, 2015

The Association For Manufacturing Technology and VDW – Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) announced recently that the competition period for the 2016 International Additive Manufacturing Award (IAMA) is now open. Those interested in applying for the award should visit for information. Entries will be accepted through December 7, 2015.

The IAMA recognizes innovations in additive manufacturing for industrial applications. This includes developments in the design of systems or major components, advances in processes or materials, new applications, data generation or measurement.

Those in the industry, such as system producers, users, component suppliers, data modelers, and international academia, are invited to apply. The 2016 award will be presented at METAV 2016 – 19th International Exhibition for Metalworking Technologies – held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from February 23-27, 2016.

The applications will be evaluated by a high-ranking international jury comprised of representatives from industry, academia, trade organizations and the media.

AMT and VDW partnered on the International Additive Manufacturing Award program in response to the rapidly changing landscape in manufacturing created by advances in additive technology. Not only do these advances present myriad opportunities, but also challenges to entry and scalability. This award was created to encourage innovators to accelerate the technology’s current availabilities while also creating new solutions to its challenges.

The 2016 IAMA winner will receive a $20,000 cash prize and a media package valued at $80,000 to promote the winning development.
