New Specification for Additive manufacturing for aerospace -- Process characteristics and performance -- Part 2: Directed energy deposition using wire and arc

1. Scope

This document specifies requirements for the additive manufacturing of metallic parts with directed energy deposition in the aerospace industry. These can be additively generated parts or additively generated additions to existing parts. Within the application scope of this document, wire is used as feedstock, and arc processes (gas-shielded metal arc processes, Tungsten inert gas processes, plasma arc processes) as the main energy source. This document is to be used in conjunction with the engineering documents, if required by the engineering authority.


AM; DED; specification


No such standard presently exists. Once approved, it will carry the designation ISO/ASTM 52943-2 (per the PSDO agreement between ISO & ASTM).

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