Making AM Better, Faster

The ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) brings together industry, government, and academia to optimize the AM R&D and standards development processes. By tightly coupling these processes, standards get into the hands of those who need them faster, drastically reducing AM time to market and increasing widespread adoption.

  • Establish standards, certification, and qualification for repeatable, consistent parts and processes

  • Prevent gaps and duplication of work in a dynamic, fast-paced technology space

  • Identify challenges that can be solved with technological improvement
