Support Action for Standardisation in Additive Manufactruring
Start date: Sep 1, 2012,
End date: Feb 28, 2014
SASAM's mission is to drive the growth of AM to efficient and sustainable industrial processes by integrating and coordinating Standardisation activities for Europe by creating and supporting a Standardisation organisation in the field of AM.The Additive Manufacturing (AM) concept is based on additive freeform fabrication technologies for the automated production of complex products. Additive Manufacturing is defined as the direct production of finished goods using additive processes from digital data. A key advantage is that AM eliminates the need for tooling, such as moulds and dies, that can make the introduction of new products prohibitively expensive, both in time and money. This enables the production of forms that have been long considered impossible by conventional series production—in fact, they can be created fast, flexibly, and with fewer machines.
