Mohsen Seifi, Ph.D., has been promoted to Vice President of Global Advanced Manufacturing Programs. Under Seifi’s leadership, ASTM’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has seen significant growth since its launch in 2018, resulting in the creation of the new Global Advanced Manufacturing Programs business division.

As head of this division, Seifi will expand ASTM’s executive team and continue to grow ASTM’s footprint and thought leadership in the field of advanced/additive manufacturing technologies.

“ASTM International is the global focal point for research to standards in advanced manufacturing thanks to the vision and leadership of Dr. Seifi and the excellent global team that he has assembled,” said ASTM president Katharine Morgan. “While much has been accomplished, we are energized and even more excited about the opportunities ahead.”

Mohsen Seifi promoted to VP for advanced manufacturing at ASTM and will lead the new Global Advanced Manufacturing Programs division Seifi, who previously served as ASTM’s director of global additive manufacturing programs, was instrumental in the launch of the AM CoE, and is a globally recognized expert in process-structure-property relationships for metal additive manufacturing. His publications have been cited more than 3000 times in the field.

For more than a century, ASTM has been well known as one of the world’s largest and most established standards-creating organizations. Over 12,000 ASTM standards operate globally and are meant to enhance performance and help everyone have confidence in the things they buy and use – from the toy in a child’s hand to the aircraft overhead. The organization harnesses the expertise of over 30,000 members to create consensus and improve performance in manufacturing and materials, products and processes, systems and services.

Under committee F42, ASTM has collaborated with ISO on the daunting task of developing standards for additive manufacturing processes, materials and parts. Among these, some of the most important ones are relative to Standard Terminology for Additive Manufacturing Technologies (F2792) and its successor ISO/ASTM 52900 – Terminology for AM – General Principles – Terminology

Although it has since been withdrawn due to the emergence of a subsequent joint ISO/ASTM standard, F2792 was the first additive manufacturing standard passed by ASTM. Published in 2009, it created the definition of AM that, in essence, is still in use today. The terminology included definitions of terms, descriptions of terms, nomenclature, and acronyms associated with AM technologies in an effort to standardize the terminology used by AM users, producers, researchers, educators, press/media, and others. By creating a common lexicon for the AM industry, this standard set the stage for the continued development of AM standards and ensured that everyone in the field could begin speaking the same language. Other key ones include Standard Specification for Additive Manufacturing Titanium-6 Aluminum-4 Vanadium with Powder Bed Fusion (F2924), ISO/ASTM 52901 – Additive Manufacturing – General principles – Requirements for Purchased AM Parts and ISO/ASTM 52910 – Guidelines for Design for AM (ISO/ASTM 52910).
