New Specification for Additive manufacturing for automotive — Qualification principles — Generic machine evaluation and specification of key performance indicators for PBF-LB/M processes

1. Scope

This document defines the methodology for generic AM-machine evaluation in automotive environment
using objective test criteria and provides the framework for an objective AM-machine evaluation and
comparison. This document finds application in benchmarks, in the preparation of purchase decisions,
but also in AM-machine evaluation within the machine procurement, acceptance, and qualification
Furthermore, this document specifies machine KPIs in the context of machine procurement, production
planning and production of PBF-LB/M components. It aims to reach a detailed understanding between
machine supplier and machine user with respect to the acceptance criteria during the procurement
process and evaluation of machine performance during running production.
This document is applicable to the additive manufacturing technology PBF-LB/M. The terminology in
this document is defined in ISO/ASTM 52900




to correct drafts to match internal system requirements to align the ASTM version(s) with their respective ISO TC261 counterparts.

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