Welcome to EBAM 2025

The EBAM conference series aims to discuss specific challenges and opportunities for additive manufacturing offered by the electron beam. EBAM 2025 brings together researchers and industrial users to accomplish improvements in these technologies.

EBAM 2025

EBAM 2025 will be a live event in February 2025 in Erlangen, Germany. We hope that the wide range of inspiring talks — including keynote presentations, high-quality poster presentations and an exhibition area — initiates various fruitful discussions and future cooperation.


The scientific focus of EBAM 2025 contains but is not limited to:

  • New/Modified EBAM/hybrid technologies
  • Process observation, stability and control
  • Processing and properties of all kind of
    • metallic/intermetallic alloys and composites
    • gradient materials
    • multi-materials
    • architected materials
  • Powder manufacturing and powder recovery
  • Secondary and finishing operations
  • Modelling and simulation
  • Digitalization and artificial intelligence
