Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies wins first International Additive Manufacturing Award

March 9, 2015
The jury for the inaugural International Additive Manufacturing Award (IAMA) has selected Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies as its winning submission.

Brussels, Belgium - After considering a slate of leading-edge innovations in additive manufacturing from top global users and system suppliers, the jury for the inaugural International Additive Manufacturing Award (IAMA) has selected Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies (Moira, Leicestershire, England/Plano, TX) as its winning submission. The award was presented on March 6, 2015, during a reception at the Manufacturing for Growth (MFG) Meeting in Orlando, FL.

Hybrid Manufacturing's submission is a hybrid kit innovation that can be integrated into a CNC machine to allow for metal deposition (via laser cladding), finishing, and inspection of parts on the same machine. The hybrid methodology integrates directed-energy deposition into multiaxis CNC machine, using a tool changer to change between processes.

Dr. Jason Jones, the company's co-founder and CEO, will present at the Additive Manufacturing European Conference, to be held October 6, 2015, during EMO Milano 2015, an exhibition for the machine tool sector.

The IAMA is the result of a partnership between the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken [VDW]). AMT and VDW, with media support from Gardner Business Media and VDI Nachrichten and sponsored by the European Machine Tool Association (CECIMO), first announced the annual IAMA at the International Manufacturing Technology Show 2014 (IMTS 2014) in Chicago, IL.
