    Laser Additive Manufacturing Workshop

    LIA's 7th annual Laser Additive Manufacturing Workshop (LAM®) brings together representatives from industries including power generation, aerospace, agriculture and automotive. Attendees hear case studies from large and small firms that describe successes in depositing wire or powder with lasers to prevent and repair corrosion on vital components. In addition, powder-bed and powder-fed additive processes allow the production of innovatively designed lightweight parts by exploiting the root power of AM. The workshop will draw dozens of experts from around the world to discuss not only traditional laser-based techniques like cladding but the revolutionary applications of AM in medicine and dentistry, the aviation and automotive industries, and even consumer products.
