Cost to Attend

The use of AM as a repair process has been around in the DOD for at least 20 years. Early applications at the Army's Anniston Army Depot showed great potential, but the technology ran into obstructions that halted its implementation. One reasons include the lack of a submission‐evaluation-implementation process within the program management offices that were responsible for each vehicle platform. At this moment, there is no authority process to allow AM repair parts to be used within the ground system community. An effort is being led by the Army's RDECOM community to develop this process, where the correct procedural steps, approval authorities, documentation and technical data requirements will be identified to allow AM repair. A sample part from the M1 Abrams AGT1500 engine and suspension arms will be the first to undergo the new process.

In between presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the latest products available. Time for hands-on demos will also be provided.
