November Cover Feature Examines the Multilayered Issues of Additive Manufacturing

Interest in harnessing the possibilities of additive manufacturing of metals has skyrocketed in recent years. But, can true, widespread application of this emerging technology live up to the buzz? Experts from throughout the field offer their front-line perspectives on the topic in “Layers of Complexity: Making the Promises Possible for Additive Manufacturing of Metals,” the cover feature in this month’s JOM. Another “don’t miss” article this month is an overview of upcoming changes to the metallurgical and materials version of the Professional Engineering examination. Also, be sure to read about the TMS Foundation’s first-ever Annual Appeal, as well as this month’s Meet a Member feature on Joalet Steenkamp and her exotic plant collection.
