The EPMA in partnership with Fraunhofer IFAM, Bremen will propose a new version of a Club Project proposal on Quality Test for Selective Laser Melting (SLM) powder (SLM-POWD).
This project (SLM-POWD) proposes to address the following three objectives:
- Study the applicability of a metal powder (to be defined) for the Additive Manufacturing process of Selective Laser Melting
- Set up a guideline on how to characterize and specify AM powder for SLM
- Set up a guideline on how to find the right laser parameters to process powder with SLM
The overall cost to the project partners will be shared by the participants (minimum of 5) through a project fee of maximum €6,600 per participant. The project is planned to start in the next few months and the duration will be 6 months. This project is open to all companies and we have started the process to form the Consortium with companies like BÖHLER Edelstahl.
A full description of the project is available at www.epma.com/projects including a Consortium Agreement (pages 1-2) to be signed and returned by companies who would like to participate in the project.
