ASTM International und Partnerentwickeln gemeinsame Standards für Directed Energy Deposition

stm international ded 300x165 - ASTM International und Partnerentwickeln gemeinsame Standards für Directed Energy Deposition

Die ASTM International ist eine internationale Standardisierungsorganisation mit Sitz in den USA. Sie veröffentlicht technische Standards für Waren und Dienstleistungen. Nun will ASTM in einer Partnerschaft mit drei UK-Organisationen gemeinsam einen Standard für das 3D-Druck-Verfahren Directed Energy Deposition (DED) entwickeln. So wird das Unterfangen von AMTS und der Normungsorganisation British Standards Institution (BSI) von betrieben. [...]
