Who We Are

3D Metal Printing magazine

The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) has launched 3D Metal Printing magazine. This exciting new publication, published quarterly, targets designers, engineers, executives and others in industries where applications for metal additive manufacturing promise to rapidly expand—aerospace, automotive, tooling, power generation, medical and other industries.

“The pace of change in this industry is unbelievably rapid,” says Brad Kuvin, editorial director at PMA. “Manufacturers continue finding ways to use 3D metal printing to create complex parts in a way that increases efficiency and allows them to quickly deliver new products to market. Metals are the fastest-growing segment of 3D printing, expected to nearly double by 2018. This publication will be a critical resource, helping designers, engineers and others working in manufacturing to stay up to date on the latest 3D metal-printing technology.”
