Senvol, New York City, USA, has announced that it will publish various Additive Manufacturing databases produced by Siemens Energy, following Siemens’ decision to make the data more widely available rather than solely for internal use. Commercialisation will start with databases on Ti64, Inconel 625 and Inconel 718; all three of these databases were generated by Siemens Energy on its Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machines.
“This marks an extremely significant point in the Additive Manufacturing industry,” stated Annie Wang, president, Senvol. “Databases of this pedigree and magnitude are typically considered proprietary information and are not made commercially available to other organisations.”

The databases will be made available via Senvol’s wider Senvol Indexes product line – data sets for Additive Manufacturing material characterisation. Each Senvol Index data set is sold individually and provides instantaneous access to AM data sets that might otherwise take months to develop.
The databases are extensive, consisting of hundreds of specimens spread across dozens of tests – such as tensile, low cycle fatigue, high cycle fatigue, and creep – most of which were conducted at various temperature conditions.
