    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.

    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. 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.

    Earn Program Credit
    This workshop is the first offering of the ASTM AM CoE's new Education & Workforce Development (E&WD) Program, which will provide training opportunities for various levels of the AM workforce. This workshop will build towards a comprehensive, longer term Training Certificate endorsed by the ASTM AM CoE.

    Each participant in this first workshop will receive a Verification of Completion that may be applied as credit toward earning a Training Certificate through the new E&WD program, which will be aligned with the principles outlined in ASTM E2659 (Standard Practice for Certificate Programs).
