New Guide for Quality Assessment of Metal Powder Feedstock Characterization Data for Additive Manufacturing

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research and implementation of technology through the development of standards for additive manufacturing technologies. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and other national and international organizations having mutual or related interests.


Powder feedstock certification


Powder feedstock assessment is essential for certification of powders received from suppliers and for qualification of powders reused in powder-bed additive manufacturing (AM) processes. This standard is needed to guide users of metal powders for additive manufacturing on when release powder test data from laboratories, to allow end users to accept powder batches from suppliers, understand when to refresh recycled powders and when to quarantine powder batches.

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