America Makes, a national leader in additive manufacturing innovation, awarded ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence $1.2 million on the strength of a project team proposal submitted by NCAME Director Nima Shamsaei. 

The $1.2 million investment will specifically help fill the gap in best practices for materials handling and utilization of selective laser melting (SLM) that has led to high variability in critical parts, challenges in qualifying parts and high post-processing costs.

Shamsaei, an associate of mechanical engineering in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, is the overall principal investigator on the ASTM International project team.
