RadTech, in cooperation with The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), recently announced the formation of the Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Alliance (PAMA). The mission of the new group is to engage industry, academia, government, and NGOs to advance materials and systems science for additive manufacturing.

PAMA will convene a three-part virtual workshop that will provide an overview and opportunities for photopolymer materials and systems characterization within additive manufacturing. The online workshop takes place on November 16, 17, and 18, 2021, from 1-3 p.m. each day and will build on the Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Roadmap developed by NIST and RadTech in 2019.

“The Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Roadmap developed from the workshop guided by NIST, and RadTech highlights key actions that must be taken for Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing to be a substantial contributor to global manufacturing,” said Mike Idacavage, Radical Curing LLC. “The Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Alliance (PAMA) Webinars in November will be a significant step to accelerate photopolymer additive manufacturing collaboration and research.”
