Additive Manufacturing Specifications and Standards

Bill Kobren

Last week’s blog post “New GAO Report on Opportunities, Challenges, and Policy Implications of Additive Manufacturing” prompted a question from a workforce member regarding Additive Manufacturing specifications and standards. Some quick research indicates several key references for these rapidly emerging technologies, including:

 

·         MIL-STD-3049 Materials Deposition, DDM: Direct Deposition of Metal for Remanufacture, Restoration and Recoating

 

·         ASTM International - Additive Manufacturing Technology Standards (Eleven Standards for Design, Materials & Processes, Terminology, and Test Methods)

 

In addition, several private sector non-governmental standards organizations have active Additive Manufacturing committees, including:

 

·         ASTM International - Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies

 

·         SAE Additive Manufacturing Committee Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) and Aerospace Standards (AS) for Additive Manufacturing

 

·         International Organization for Standardization /Technical Committee (ISO/TC) 261 Additive Manufacturing

 

We have posted links to these and many other AM references and resources to our DAU Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP) Additive Manufacturing website. For those who may not be familiar with the technologies and potential supply chain management implications, encourage you to check out our library of Additive Manufacturing overview training videos (available directly from the DAU Media Library) and our Additive Manufacturing overview ACQuipedia article.
