The agreement an information exchange on topics of interest and will encourage Canadian participation in the standards-development process.
“We are thrilled to partner with worldclass universities in the HI-AM Network to focus on key industry challenges,” says Dr. Mohsen Seifi, ASTM International director of global additive manufacturing programs, “and already have registered two standard work items as a result of this collaboration.”
Those work items: best practices for in-situ defect detection, and benchmarking of powder bed density measurement.
