The Additive Manufacturing and Powder Metallurgy (AMPM) Proficiency Testing Program (PTP) participation offers organizations to demonstrate their lab’s testing capabilities for metal powder and in turn satisfy accreditation requirements. Participation at the AMPM PTP helps organizations improve and maintain high level of performance in the use of ASTM methods and compare with other labs worldwide. It is also seen as a QA tool to monitor lab’s strengths and weaknesses. Participants receive a comprehensive benchmark report on the statistics of test results and understand characteristics of powders (such as apparent density, flow rate and particle size). Participants can use test results as a benchmark for creating acceptance criteria.

This webinar is intended to provided a detailed understanding about the ASTM International’s proficiency testing program for metal powder used in additive manufacturing. The webinar covers topics such as importance of powder quality in AM, the methodology in performing PTP program, the benefits in becoming a part of this program, different ASTM and ISO standards used in characterization of metal powders, how to participate in this program and the value obtained for the program participants. This webinar is offered free of charge.

This webinar will take place on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 9:00am EDT.
