ASTM International to hold its Standards Forum at Formnext 2021

October 13, 2021

ASTM International has announced that the Standards Forum will again take place in conjunction with Formnext 2021, in Frankfurt, Germany. The forum, titled ‘Industrialization of AM through Standardization – How to take AM to the next level?’, will be held on November 15, and is jointly organised by the U.S. Commercial Service, ASTM International, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), with support from Mesago Formnext.

The 2021 Standards Forum seeks to build on the success of two previous forums, held at Formnext in 2019 and 2018, focused on increasing awareness around standardisation and fostering transatlantic collaboration in the field. It aims to allow attendees to understand how standards impact the industrialisation of AM, and how users can leverage standards for various AM applications across a variety of industry sectors.

The forum will include two keynote sessions, six presentations, two panel discussions, and two break-out sessions. The keynote sessions will address the status of AM standards development and the general industry perspective on the use of AM standards.

The panel discussions will cover AM industrialisation and standards challenges, while the breakout sessions will allow participants to share perspectives and focus on industry-specific needs for AM standards, with a particular emphasis on standards for aerospace, medical, automotive, construction, energy, and many others.

The presentations will cover:

·  Digitalisation

·  Big data

·  AM automation

·  Rapid qualification and certification

·  How standards drive the adoption of AM in different industry sectors

The forum is open to all engaged in AM activities. Registration is open here.
