ASTM F3001 powder analysis laboratory

As a manufacturer, you want to carry out a powder analysis to ASTM F3001 standard.

What is ASTM F3001?

American standard ASTM F3001 specifies requirements for cobalt-28 chromium-6 molybdenum (Co-28Cr-6Mo) alloys produced by fusion or additive manufacturing. These alloys are used for surgical applications, including orthopedic implants and other medical devices.

What are the requirements of ASTM F3001?

Composition requirements: the standard sets precise criteria for the chemical composition of the alloy, ensuring that the materials used are biocompatible and suitable for long-term medical use.
Mechanical properties: these also define the mechanical properties required, such as tensile strength, elasticity and hardness, to ensure that the implants manufactured are durable and reliable.

Why perform ASTM F3001 powder analysis?

Compliance with the requirements associated with this standard enables the metal powder to generate a low defect rate (porosity, inclusion, etc.) and a high level of compactness on the part produced, synonymous with excellent mechanical properties.

DM manufacturers and manufacturers of powders for DM additive manufacturing refer to this standard to ensure that their products comply with regulatory requirements.
