ASTM WK83515

New Specification for Additive manufacturing — Non-destructive testing and evaluation — Defect classification in metallic PBF parts

1. Scope

This document specifies a classification of the imperfections likely to be generated during an additive
manufacturing operation by PBF-LB (laser beam powder bed fusion) or PBF-EB (electron beam powder
bed fusion) for metal parts. This document also indicates the most probable causes of the formation of
imperfections and gives some illustrations taken from feedback.


Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure


The rationale: they represent items that have been approved for joint development between F42 and TC 261. We can also pull the rationale statements from the original registration of the 2 work items that are in addition to what I gave you above. That she put some meat on the rationale bones and make all three consistent.

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