SAE International to hold its first Additive Manufacturing Committee meeting

July 8, 2015

SAE-International-NEW

SAE International is inviting aerospace engineering professionals to participate in the initial meeting of its Additive Manufacturing Committee, which will be held July 21-22 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Recognising that Additive Manufacturing is an emerging technology within the aerospace industry, the SAE Additive Manufacturing Committee (AMS-AM) will develop and maintain Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) and Aerospace Standards (AS) for Additive Manufacturing, including precursor material, additive processes, additive materials, post-process heat treatment, dimensional inspection, mechanical testing, non-destructive testing and quality assurance.

Finished parts produced by AM processes are subject to unique regulatory requirements. Stakeholders in the aerospace industry require tailored material and process specifications to support critical aerospace applications.

David Abbott, Principal Engineer, MPED Additive Technologies at GE Aviation, will serve as committee chair. According to Abbott, “This committee will be an important and essential part of the process of generating aerospace industry consensus specifications to aid in the certification process as well as develop a supply chain for the industry. Standards will play a crucial role and SAE is well-positioned to lead this effort. GE Aviation recognises the tremendous potential of Additive Manufacturing and is investing heavily in this technology.”

Participation is open to individuals from aircraft manufacturers, engine manufacturers, material suppliers, equipment suppliers, operators, regulatory authorities, and research organisations.
