ASME to Participate in America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative

Apr 1, 2016

On March 31st, ASME was among the organizations participating in the inaugural meeting of the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC) held in Philadelphia, PA.

America Makes – also known as the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute – was established in 2012 as a public-private partnership to enable technology research, discovery, creation, and innovation in additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

The purpose of the AMSC will be to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications consistent with the needs of stakeholders.

ASME has several emerging standards activities in the area of additive manufacturing, including in the areas of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (Y14.46), verification and validation (V&V-50), and pressure retaining equipment.
