Experience with the industrial use of additive manufacturing shows that identically specified powder orders can lead to various more or less suitable powder deliveries. This standard describes procedures and techniques providing relevant data for powder characterisation. This helps to improve the reproducibility and the process reliability of the entire additive manufacturing process chain. This standard is aimed at producers and users of metal powders to be processed in powder bed-based additive manufacturing units using e.g. laser beam melting (also called powder bed fusion) or electron beam melting (EBM). It also addresses specialists for quality control of parts produced by additive manufacturing as well as suppliers of measurement and testing equipment to characterise metal powders.
