ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence highlights successful year

July 22, 2022

ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE), Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA, has released its fourth annual report. The 2021-2022 report features a list of accomplishments, updates, funding, key events, an overview of the centre’s leadership team, and activity updates on R&D, education & workplace development, standardisation and certification and European Union consortium.

“The core objective of the AM CoE is to pave the way for the AM technologies to be more broadly available by accelerating standardiation through strategic R&D, certification programmes, key global partnerships, education initiatives, advisory services, and innovation,” stated Mohsen Seifi, PhD, ASTM International’s VP of global advanced manufacturing programs. “This report captures the many accomplishments of the AM CoE and the holistic approach to meeting this key objective.”

Specific accomplishments highlighted in the report include:

  • Twelve new, fully funded R&D projects that fill standardisation gaps
  • Launch of the Consortium on Materials and Data Standardization (CMDS)
  • New operator certification programme
  • AM CoE’s leadership in three America Makes projects with a combined total effort of more than $1 million
  • Successful ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ICAM 2021) that included more than 850 attendees representing over thirty-five countries, and 475-plus technical talks

In tandem with the annual report, the AM CoE has also launched a new, more interactive website to serve as a hub for its activities.

The report is available here.
