Additive Construction - Industry Overview

About the Webinar:

Presented by Stephan Mansour, Additive Construction Specialist at Wohlers Associates, Powered by ASTM International.

The construction industry is progressively embracing additive construction from making small parts to large structures. As this technology advances, it promises to become an increasingly viable supplement to traditional construction methods. The term additive construction (AC) has been coined to describe technologies that build large-scale structures layer by layer. Applications of AC cover all construction sectors and expand to large-scale real estate projects, elements of buildings, entire structures, civil infrastructure, and disaster relief. AC also encompasses relevant areas of architecture, engineering, robotics, and project and facility management.

ASTM Certified Operator for Metal PBF-LB: An Overview

About the Webinar

Presented by ASTM International and EOS

Key takeaways:
– Get a deeper understanding about the ASTM operator certification program
– Getting involved with this certification program (understanding the process of getting certified, why, what, and how to get certified)
– Why its important to qualify operators
– What this certification means to a metal PBF-LB operator
– How the operator certification program can support your QMS system

What is the ASTM PBF-LB Machine Operator Certification?

With Additive Manufacturing (AM) scaling from prototyping to production of critical components, the need to verify the competency of machine operators is increasing. In response to the market demand for a standard approach to qualify operators, ASTM International has developed a certification program that applies to personnel operating metal laser powder bed machines.

The operator certification program applies to:

  • Any contract that requires compliance to ISO/ASTM 52942 for qualified operators for the metal AM machines and associated equipment.
  • Any application standards that calls out operator qualification (OQ) as a requirement.
  • Demonstrate your organization’s commitment to quality by ensuring qualified metal AM operators.

Impact of ISO/ASTM Standards on Product Realization

About the Webinar
ASTM International and ISO have been working on developing additive manufacturing standards to drive industrialization of AM. More than 40 standards have been published and 70 more standards are currently under development. This webinar will provide an overview about the status of ISO/ASTM International additive manufacturing standards and how these standards can be used effectively to produce AM parts for industrial applications.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, the attendees will have developed an understanding of:

  • Status of AM standards development by ASTM International and ISO
  • Using Standards to create work instructions
  • How standards can reinforce the quality management system
  • How you can get involved in the standards development activity
