Delivering real business benefits across key segments
Additive manufacturing (AM) material manufacturers face high competition and have strict customer requirements for material quality. Testing provides a way to qualify their products in a highly detailed manner. AM as a relatively new manufacturing processes faces scrutiny in the quality of AM produced parts. At TÜV SÜD, we provide test plans and product testing to ensure specifications are met.
A wide variety of materials like cobalt chrome alloys, titanium alloys, aluminide alloys, polyamides, epoxy resins, ABS and ceramics et al are used in the additive manufacturing process. Unlike traditional manufacturing processes, achieving high-quality AM products is not easy to guarantee.
The quality of the final product depends not only on the feedstock quality, but also on the interaction of many other aspects, such as process and hardware. Therefore, it is important to test the properties of the feedstock material as well as the properties of the final part.
At TÜV SÜD, we are backed by unparalleled expertise in additive manufacturing best practices, as well as decades of in-depth knowledge of the material and various product manufacturing industries. With our network of laboratories and TÜV SÜD’s specialized in-house team of additive manufacturing experts, we help feedstock material suppliers and additive manufacturers validate the quality of their products by testing their materials and properties according to their requirements, based on the related ISO and ASTM standards. TÜV SÜD is recognised globally as an independent and impartial third-party service provider.
We provide different services to test material feedstock and product properties:
