The Aerospace Material Specification committee on Additive Manufacturing (AMS-AM) at SAE International, a global engineering standards association in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, has released its first suite of Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) additive manufacturing materials and process specifications. The four technical standards is mainly related to laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) powered additive manufacturing.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials in Washington issued a task request in 2015 asking SAE to form a standards committee to develop aerospace material specifications and related documents to assist them in developing guidance material for additive manufacturing (AM) certification of parts used on aircraft, including “commercial jets that carry passengers over large bodies of water where there is no room for error or inferior quality,” officials say.
Standards - Certification - Aircraft - Spacecraft - Parts
The new aerospace technical standards support the certification of critical aircraft and spacecraft parts, "providing both a framework to protect the integrity of material property data and traceability within the aerospace supply chain," says SAE International.
