Recently, global standards leader ASTM International formally announced a new strategic partner for its Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence. The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) in Singapore has been named the second such partner of the initiative outside its founding members: EWI, Auburn University, NASA and the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).
Additionally, from Tuesday November 6 through Thursday November 8, 2018, ASTM International will be holding a symposium on structural integrity of AM parts sponsored by its longstanding F42 Additive Manufacturing Technologies Committee.
Dr - Mohsen - Seifi - Director - Manufacturing
Speaking with Dr. Mohsen Seifi, director of global additive manufacturing programs at ASTM International, 3D Printing Industry was given a progress report on the recently-founded Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, and details of what to expect next from the leading standards body.
ASTM International first announced plans for the Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in November 2017. Following this, after months of searching, the organization announced its four founding partners in March 2018, and launched the multi-site center in Alabama at Auburn’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Speaking at that time Katharine Morgan, president of ASTM International, said, “This game-changing collaboration will build a strong foundation for the future of additive manufacturing,”
IT - CLEAR - THIS - NEW - CENTER
“[…] IT’S CLEAR THAT THIS NEW CENTER HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF INDUSTRIES LIKE AEROSPACE, AUTO, MEDICAL, AND MORE.”
Now, almost a year on from its establishment, Dr. Seifi comments, “We’ve had an extremely successful launch year. After a very competitive process, we announced four founding partners (Auburn University, NASA, EWI, and the UK-based Manufacturing Technology Centre) as well as a new strategic partner (the National Institute for Aviation Research) and now NAMIC.“
Month - Round - Projects
Furthermore, “Just last month, we announced the first round of funded projects totaling about $300,000.”
As previously reported, ASTM International’s $300,000 offering funds the development of standards for feedstock-characterization; requirements to help qualify laser-PBF machines...
