ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has announced its second Specialty Workshop Series on In-Situ Technology Readiness for Applications in AM Qualification and Certification will take place on January 26, 2022, in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. The workshop will be held in collaboration with the NASA and Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC).
In-situ monitoring technologies for AM may be used as a means of controlling part quality, reducing ex-situ inspection requirements, and providing insights on elements of the AM value chain, including feedstock and design. Ultimately, in-situ technologies may provide a solution to quality assessment of components with complex geometries that are hard to inspect via traditional inspection techniques.
Government, industry, and academic participants will meet to address relevant topics, including:
- Approaches to qualification using in-situ methods as a quality assurance tool in critical applications
- Integrations of in-situ monitoring systems in production for real-time monitoring and closed-loop control
- Correlation of in-situ monitoring data to material defect states and process escapes, computational models, and traditional inspection techniques
Due to COVID-19, the capacity of this event is limited. Interested individuals may now join a waiting list; registrations will be confirmed by ASTM in early December.
