The ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence will host its first workshop on Monday, March 25 at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Resort & Spa at Grand National in Alabama, USA. The workshop immediately precedes the biannual meeting of ASTM International’s committee on additive manufacturing technologies (F42).
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.
To ensure the structural integrity of additively manufactured parts, there is a need for establishing process-structure-property-performance relationships; specifically, where these components and structures are being used in safety critical applications. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the structural integrity of parts fabricated using additive manufacturing with a focus on the lack of industry standards, design principals, as well as qualification and certification challenges. The materials of interest include metals, polymers, composites, and ceramics. This event is designed for professionals within the AM community including industry, academia and government agencies.
