Media Brand is Adding Magazine Issues, BPA Audit, Events and Staff

(Cincinnati, OH) – Founded in 2012 as the first magazine devoted to industrial applications of 3D printing technology, Additive Manufacturing is announcing a series of initiatives designed to provide expanded coverage in 2018. By increasing print frequency, creating new technical events and hiring new staff, the company will now be better situated to reflect and respond to the growth in the use and interest of additive manufacturing. The change is driven by the growing support for additive manufacturing because of the recognition of industrial part production as the greatest ultimate potential market for this technology.

Additive Manufacturing Magazine, which started as a supplement to Modern Machine Shop, is moving from being a quarterly publication to publishing six issues a year. The expansion underscores ongoing commitment to increasing coverage as the technology is adopted by more manufacturers. The publication will also be BPA audited for the first time, next year.

The first Additive Manufacturing Conference launched in 2014 alongside IMTS. It has grown every year since and its focus on industrial part production and toolmaking applications of additive put it right at home alongside North America’s largest manufacturing event. In 2018, it will once again partner with AMT to hold the event during IMTS in Chicago. Building on that success, the brand is also adding a new 3D printing workshop at NPE2018 – The Plastics Show. It will be an immersive, half-day event focused on practical applications of 3D technologies related to plastics processing, cover both plastic parts production through additive manufacturing and the use of additive technology to make mold tooling.

The brand’s success has been founded on its people, and after a thorough and careful recruitment search, the company hired Brent Donaldson as an additional Senior Editor, and added European Correspondent, Barbara Schulz. With these new team member acquisitions, the company will be able to meet the demands placed upon it by the growing market.

“Since we first began this publication as a small supplement to an established industrial magazine, our goal has been to grow along with the technology,” said Pete Zelinski, Editor in Chief of Additive Manufacturing. “Our decision to expand heavily in 2018 is driven by that decision. With more companies than ever before incorporating additive technology into their production lines, we need to be able to meet the demand for information and education.”
