Additive Manufacturing Coalition hosts “off-the-record” session with Congressional Leaders


On January 20th, the Additive Manufacturing Coalition hosted a virtual forum with Congressional staff from the Senate Majority Leader’s office, the House Science Subcommittee on Research, and a key House Committee Chairwoman to discuss what the additive manufacturing community could expect in the next 6 months from Congress. 

Although we normally record and post these sessions on our website, we agreed to keep this session off the record to ensure that we could have a candid conversation.  We had over 125 participants on our call, if that wasn’t you – then it’s time for your organization to consider joining the coalition. We look forward to welcoming you to our next forum on February 23rd on Nano-Micro scale additive.

COVID & Additive Manufacturing Certification and Validation: 


How has COVID-19 impacted AM?  Lessons Learned and Opportunities Discovered. 

September 21, 2020

The Additive Manufacturing Coalition held a zoom briefing to discuss how the Additive Manufacturing community has handled the COVID pandemic - impacts on the research and development of AM technologies, as well as experiences stepping forward to fill the gaps for the production of PPE and other necessary items to help the nation respond to the pandemic.  The discussion was a wide-ranging discussion across several federal agencies and organizations.  This five star panel included:

  • Craig Blue - Director EERE Programs - Oak Ridge National Laboratory

  • Phil Burton - Program Manager Additive Manufacturing TACOM

  • Joe Kott - Lead - Additive Manufacturing - Ground Vehicle Systems Center TACOM

Joint Congressional Briefing on PREP Act Protections for Additive Manufacturers

July 13, 2020

The Additive Manufacturing Coalition held a joint briefing with the Congressional Manufacturing Caucus on liability protections for additive manufacturers who stepped up to produce PPE for front-line health care workers.  The briefing for Congressional staff was designed to both highlight the manner in which additive manufacturers responded to the pandemic by producing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure the safety of health care workers during the pandemic, as well as to express the need for liability protections under the PREP Act be applied consistently across the U.S.  

Speakers included:

  • Heidi Hertel, Founder of Fitz Frames ( spoke about the role her company is playing in providing eye protection during the pandemic.

  • Shaun Troxler - Associate General Counsel - North Carolina State University - spoke on the efforts at the university to respond to the pandemic as well as the legal considerations and concerns they had and steps they took to protect the institution from future litigation.

  • Erik Swanholt - Partner Foley and Lardner, LLC - gave a presentation on the PREP Act (Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act) and how the implementation of the Act has created an inconsistent application of the law across the country.
