2nd ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence Workshop

  • CETIM; 60300 Senlis, FR (Near Paris) (map)

About the Event

To ensure the accelerated and successful adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) across a variety of industry sectors, those involved in AM technologies need a holistic understanding of the entire AM process and how they can benefit from standardized practices to ensure quality and consistency.

Those involved in AM technologies need a holistic understanding of the entire additive manufacturing (AM) process and how they can benefit from standardized practices to ensure quality, reliability, and accelerated successful adoption of AM in their industry sectors.

This one-day workshop will offer participants a unique and comprehensive snapshot of the entire AM value chain, including powder, design, processing, postprocessing, non-destructive inspection, qualification, and certification. The workshop will also address gaps in standardization and workforce development for AM technologies and how the newly formed ASTM AM Center of Excellence (AM CoE) is employing a combined approach of R&D and targeted standards development.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is open to all professionals in the AM community who want to learn about the latest AM standardized practices:

  • Industry representatives (including aerospace, medical, automotive, and defense)

  • Academics and researchers

  • Government agencies

Why You Should Attend

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with leading experts in the AM technology field, while you can volunteer to participate in ongoing and future standard development activities. Each of the 12 interactive sessions is designed with industry needs in mind and will illustrate the role and value of standards to achieving accelerated product qualification and certification for AM.

You will also learn about the most current standards activities occurring within the AM technology space, as well as the unique role of the ASTM AM CoE in transitioning targeted AM R&D projects into standards, workforce education and training.
