Standards Forum at Formnext 2022


Theme: Driving AM Industrialization Through Predictive-Based Qualification

Organized by U.S. Commercial Service, ASTM International, and ISO – International Organization for Standardization and in partnership with Mesago Formnext

This one-day workshop at Formnext 2022 focuses on using predictive-based qualifications to drive AM industrialization in various industry sectors. Some of the key discussion topics include, but not limited to:

  • Simulation-based performance optimization and qualification
  • Digital twin for AM
  • Digitalization of standards
  • Simulation for AM supply chain qualification
  • Standardization challenges for predictive based qualification

This event is comprised of 7 technical talks, an interactive panel discussion, and a break-out session led by industry leaders from all the industry sectors currently using AM.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is open to all engaged in AM activities, including Executives, Managers, AM Engineers, and Technicians from industry, research institutes, academia, and government agencies.

Why You Should Attend

This is an excellent opportunity to understand and appreciate how AM standards have been used across different industry sectors. You will get first-hand information from the industry leaders who are effectively using standards in their AM operations. The panel discussions and break-out sessions allow you to interact with industry experts about the standard practices and methods to overcome challenges in the implementation of AM.
