New Edition of Standard Test Methods Released

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced the publication of the 2019 Edition of Standard Test Methods for Metal Powders and Powder Metallurgy Products. The most current versions of these standards, which are used in the manufacture of both metal powder and powder metallurgy products, are required by quality assurance programs in order to maintain full compliance.

WPI Receives $25 Million to Bring Cold Spray Metal AM Techniques to Army

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has received a three-year, $25-million award from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory (CCDC-ARL) to advance a 3D printing technique that could be used to repair vehicles and other critical technology in the field, avoiding the sometimes extensive wait for new parts and increasing the readiness of military units.

Metal 3D Printed Turbine

Together with the H+E-Produktentwicklung GmbH in Moritzburg, Saxony, Germany, the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden, Germany, has developed a true-to-scale gas turbine that impressively demonstrates the current potentials and limitations of powder bed-based additive technologies. The technology demonstrator "Siemens SGT6-8000 H", a scaled model of a gas turbine for power generation on a scale of 1:25, was completely manufactured with additive processes except for the shaft.
