Senvol and the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have signed a two-year research agreement focused on pedigreed additive manufacturing (AM) data generation.

Using Senvol’s proprietary Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) document for generating pedigreed AM data, the project will evaluate best practices for data collection. ORNL and Senvol will investigate pedigreed data collection in regard to understanding the quality of AM materials and ensuring that all of the required nuanced data is captured and accurately extracted during an AM data generation project.

Senvol’s SOP covers topics such as collecting appropriate geometric information, key processing parameters for the AM technology, and any key material testing protocols.

This research is supported by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy-Advanced Manufacturing Office under the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at ORNL.
