Recognising the opportunity of expansive material utilisation beyond Ti-6Al-4V, the objective of the Proliferation of AM Materials Datasets project aims to rapidly increase the number and type of pedigreed, statistically based, and industrially relevant AM material datasets. Award recipients are required to collaborate with small businesses to bolster applicable learnings, best practices, and data to benefit and address the needs of the broader AM supply chain.

“The awardees will be advancing our domestic manufacturing capability with the development and delivery of these material datasets. Aluminium and nickel-based alloys are pivotal in lightweight design and elevated temperature applications across the aerospace, automotive, defence, and energy sectors,” stated Brandon Ribic, Technology Director at America Makes. “The rigor necessary to generate such pedigreed, statistically based material data is incredibly demanding. The outcomes of these efforts will be a substantial contribution to the AM design community. Furthermore, such collaborations are a tremendous benefit to small and medium-sized organisations as they drastically improve our knowledge base, domestic manufacturing competency, and can significantly reduce barriers to entry. We are so thrilled for this opportunity for collective learning and to serve the nation’s supply chain agility and resiliency needs.”
