ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has announced a second Call for Projects (CFP), allowing non-AM CoE partners to participate in a Research to Standardization initiative to further accelerate standards development for Additive Manufacturing.

Responding to interest from the industry, the AM CoE developed the CFP programme in 2020 to allow non-AM CoE members to receive support for research towards standards development. This CFP is a complementary programme to the AM CoE Request for Ideas (RFI), which funds projects by AM CoE partners from the pool of submitted ideas from ASTM membership. Both the CFP and RFI focus on closing standardisation gaps, including those identified in the AMSC roadmap.

“We are thrilled to unveil our second Call for Projects,” stated Mohsen Seifi, PhD, ASTM International’s director of global AM programmes. “The AM CoE team is excited to continue supporting AM users and developers that participate in the Research to Standards (R2S) initiative, and further accelerate AM standardisation.”

Several themes for AM research and development topics are highlighted in the CFP, including:

  • Design (DfAM) and Data (acquisition, analysis, management, sharing, machine learning and AI, etc.)
  • Feedstock (characterisation, reuse, handling, storage, etc.)
  • AM processes and post-processing (interruptions, in-situ monitoring, support removal, finishing, etc.)
  • Testing (rapid, alternate, or novel test methods for AM)
  • Inspection, certification, and qualification

Interested participants can register here for an informational webinar on the CFP which will be held on December 8, 2021, at 10:00 AM EST.
