- TÜV SÜD & NAMIC will conduct a joint Certification Programme in Quality and Production Management of Industrial Additive Manufacturing
- TÜV SÜD to award certificate at the end of the training programme
Singapore: The German training, inspection, consultancy, testing and certification giant, TÜV SÜD, today announced its participation in the week-long National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) Summit 2019 to be held in Singapore from 6th to 10th May. In partnership with the NAMIC, the company will also host a joint training session on Certification in Quality and Production Management of Industrial Additive Manufacturing at NUS Innovation 4.0 Building, Singapore.
The course provides a practical overview of the requirements in setting up an effective QM system specific to AM serial production, and the factors that determine the quality of AM-produced parts. With a functional and practiced QM, the fluctuation in the quality of parts can be reduced, thus, reassuring reproducibility. Topics covered in this course include the typical challenges and solutions in implementing 3D printing technologies as an Additive Manufacturing (AM) solution, the application of quality adjustment and monitoring methods, and the understanding of the factors that determine the AM quality-decisive properties. The course deliverables are derived from past experiences of the AM production industry to avoid pitfalls, hence, shortening the time to market. This achieves a high degree of quality for customers and creates the basis for reproducible AM series production.
Gregor Reischle, Additive Manufacturing expert at TÜV SÜD has developed the coursework, which is designed in a comprehensive way to cover terms and definitions, software and hardware, along with an in-depth discussion on application and case studies. Participants will also get a practical overview of the requirements in setting up of an effective QM system specific to AM serial production, and the factors that determine the quality of AM produced parts.
Derived from the past experiences of the AM industry, the programme will prove extremely beneficial for the participating businesses to deliver a high degree of quality to their customers. At the end of the course, they will receive a certificate on the completion of a half day test, the certification will enhance the acceptability of their products as it guarantees compliance with procedures.
NAMIC Summit will bring together global 3D printing experts, adopters, innovators and professionals and facilitate interactions and discussions for knowledge sharing on the latest 3D printing innovations, designs and process development as well as widespread industrial adoption. Thus, providing a unique experience. The platform identifies and nurtures promising AM technologies and start-ups, jumpstarts public-private cross-collaborations, acting as a connector between industry, research performers and public agencies. NAMIC also assists companies seeking to lower the barriers towards AM adoption through joint project funding and leveraging on its investor networks.
