ISO International Standard

Additive manufacturing of metals— Feedstock materials — Powder life cycle management

This document specifies requirements and describes aspects for the lifecycle management of metal feedstock materials for powder based additive manufacturing processes. These aspects include but are not limited to:

     powder properties;

     powder lifecycle;

     test methods;

     powder quality assurance.

This document supplements ISO/ASTM 52907, which primarily focuses on requirements for virgin powder. This document covers on powder life cycle management, and therefore focuses on control of virgin and used powders.

This document can be used by manufacturers of metal powders, purchasers of powder feedstock for additive manufacturing, those responsible for the quality assurance of additively manufactured parts and suppliers of measurement and testing equipment for characterizing metal powders for use in powder-based additive manufacturing processes.
