3.3 Definitions:
build programmer
person responsible for programming a build including part orientation, part(s) nesting, and the application of critical build parameters.
machine operator
person responsible for initiating builds and turning over machines, which includes, but is not limited to, loading feedstock powder, loading build platforms, removing completed builds and routine machine cleaning and filter changes.
recoater blade
portion of the machine that comes in contact with and spreads feedstock across the build area.
The recoater blade may also be called a rake, recoater, roller, or brush.
4 PBF Material Identification
4.1 Material covered by this document (that is, powder and consolidated part/PBF machine input and output), shall be identified by specification callouts including, but not limited to, the following:
4.1.1 Alloy designation according to requirements; where no alloy designation exists, the chemical composition shall be listed.
4.1.2 Powder type— Virgin, used, blend or mix.
4.1.3 Surface finish— As built, media blasted, supports removed by machining or manual deburring, in
accordance with specification callouts, or any combination of the latter finish types.
4.1.4 Dimensional tolerances— In accordance with specification callouts or PBF machine output capability.
NOTE 1— 4.1.3 and 4.1.4 apply to consolidated parts only.
5 Feedstock and Powder Batches
5.1 The material supplier shall package the powder in containers capable of preventing moisture from penetrating the containers. No other materials including desiccant bags, labels, or tags shall be placed inside the containers in contact with the powder.
5.2 All feedstock shall have a certificate of conformance from the material supplier indicating that the feedstock meets the purchase specification requirements.
5.3 Metal powder shall be purchased from an approved material supplier on the QMS (Quality Management Systems (see an ASL (Approved Supplier List), or a customer-directed material supplier. Powder shall be verified for conformance to the material specification. Third-party certification of powder may be used. Guide F3049, ISO 4497, and ISO 13320 provide guidance on the measurement of particle size distribution.AS ISO ASTM 52904 pdf download.
