    Journal of Thermal Spray Technology Special Focus on Metal Additive Manufacturing

    This special issue of the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology (JTST) includes selected papers on the emerging field of additive manufacturing (AM). This current issue includes five papers, with an additional two papers that appear in other regular issues.

    Additive manufacturing refers to the various processes used to make three-dimensional parts by depositing material layer-by-layer from 3D computer-aided design models. This differs drastically from traditional manufacturing methods (TMM) such as subtractive (milling or drilling), formative (casting or forging), and joining (welding or fastening) processes. Additive manufacturing technologies include Vat photopolymerization, material extrusion, material jetting, binder jetting, powder bed fusion, direct energy deposition, and sheet lamination.
