ASTM WK26102

    New Specification for Metrics for Initial Conditioning of Machines &/or Performance Metrics for Metal Deposition

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F42.05 | Committee F42 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Performance metrics for direct metal deposition processes. Specifically, processes that incorporate material feed in the form of powder or wire, and that utilize a high-energy density heat source such as laser, elctron beam or plasma arc, to manufacture three-dimensional geometry.

    Ensure best practices for materials additive processes defined above.


    Additive manufacuscturing, laser, electron beam, wire feed, powder feed, high-energy

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
