NCDMM and America Makes will be unveiling the AMNOW Metals Challenge — a challenge to those working in data analytics and artificial intelligence in advanced manufacturing to demonstrate their capabilities using a dataset recently developed by AMNOW program.
The program developed a large, integrated data set for 316L parts and coupons manufactured using Laser Powder Bed Fusion.
This data set consists of:
• Build Geometries
• Powder Chemistry
• Machine Data from >36 Builds spread across 3 different machine models
• 2 Different Heat Treatments
• Digital Radiography DICONDE Files
• >800 Coupon Tests (tensile, fatigue, chemistry, hardness, microstructure/porosity)
Additionally, all of the data has been associated to enhance correlation and analysis.
The Challenge: Demonstrate the ability to correlate feedstock & process data with material quality and properties & anomalies.
The Opportunity: The opportunity is not only to have access to this large dataset and the ability to report your findings to the broader America Makes audience but to earn cost share and a small contract to influence the final part builds.
RFP to be released April 13.
