New Standard Practice for LENS Processing Being Developed by ASTM

By Dr. Richard Grylls, LENS Product Manager
astm
We need your help! In 2009, ASTM formed committee F42 to promote implementation of additive manufacturing technologies through the development of standards. Although Optomec’s LENS technology has been in use for over ten years in industrial applications, common industrial standards have not been available. Users of the LENS technology have typically developed their own standards for a specific job, which can involve significant time and expense. Within the F42 committee, a Standard Practice is now being developed for “Directed Energy Deposition” of metals, which will cover the LENS process and other similar processes. The Standard Practice will describe how to set up the machine, why atmosphere control is important, safety, post-processing and other important details. The Standard Practice will then form a basis for specifications to be written to cover specific applications – for example, repair of nickel superalloy components. The Standard Practice will only be useful if it has wide input and is useable in a wide range of applications. Anyone who would like to join this effort, as a reviewer or contributor, please let us know! The initial draft is being created now, and it will probably take a year or two to complete.
