Additive Manufacturing – Standardization Activities and Certification Possibilities

Gözde Tuzcu

by Gözde Tuzcu, Kiwa Nederland B.V.

ISO/TC 261 the technical committee of standardization in the field of additive manufacturing works together with ASTM F42 Committee. The work here created is followed and the standards are adopted by CEN TC438. Currently this committee has published 14 standards, have 23 standards under development in the 7 active work groups.

The standards are developed under the topics concerning AM processes (hard- and software), terms and definitions, test procedures, quality parameters, supply agreements and all kind of fundamentals.

Industrializing AM and merging the worlds of additive manufacturing and machining – Presented by Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions

Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Getting rid of the bin of broken dreams! How do we deliver high quality and accurate metal products? Unfortunately, people often forget that AM is more than the printer and controlling the printing process. In order to realize the full potential of additive manufacturing, companies must employ a robust process that integrates design, engineering, manufacturing planning and production operations.

In this presentation we provide the insights of an end-to-end workflow where AM and machining are combined.

The ‘eco system’ approach from materials – printer – to post processing (part one) – Nirali Surati, DSM

Nirali Surati, DSM, will speak at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

This is a two-part presentation in partnership with AMT.

The ‘eco system’ approach from materials – printer – to post processing (part one) presented by DSM
The ‘eco system’ approach from materials – printer – to post processing (part two) presented by AMT

The Additive Manufacturing landscape today consists of several moving parts such as materials, machines, software, post processing technologies etc. that all need to work in harmony to ensure a positive experience for users. Varied stakeholders in the industry cater to each of these moving parts forming the ecosystem of additive manufacturing. These seemingly disconnected steps have a broad influence on the additive manufacturing experience and hence its wider adoption. The presentations talk about how DSM and AMT are working on these challenges with a combined eco-system approach.

How to boost Additive Manufacturing (AM) for serial production? Opportunities to improve AM processes and Machines – Presented by Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

With the industrial transition to use Additive Manufacturing (AM) for Series Production, AM machine builders, SW/HW providers and end-users are confronted with different challenges to increase productivity, decrease lead time and produce parts with high quality. The current practice is however far from reaching the desired productivity and quality that are translated to large scrap rate in current production. This presentation will highlight examples for opportunities, based on industrial projects conducted by Flanders Make, to improve the AM process and machines leading to reduce lead time, increase productivity and reduce the scrap rate.
