Board on Pressure Technology Codes and Standards Project Team on Evaluation of Additive Manufacturin

On August 9, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN, the newly redesignated ASME Board on Pressure Technology Codes and Standards (BPTCS)/ Board on Nuclear Codes and Standards (BNCS) Special Committee on Use of Additive Manufacturing for Pressure Retaining Equipment held its first meeting during ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week. The task of the special committee is to develop a technical baseline to support development of a proposed BPTCS standard or guideline addressing the pressure integrity governing the construction of pressure retaining equipment by additive manufacturing processes. The committee will initially develop a task plan for development of a technical baseline for data supporting a standard for additive manufacturing.

ASME is currently soliciting subject matter experts and affected stakeholders to help support these efforts.
