Instill confidence and trust in your additive manufacturing materials

Additive manufacturing (AM) material manufacturers face high competition and have strict customer requirements for material quality as it is a relatively new manufacturing processes. Testing provides a way to verification of the quality of printed products. A wide variety of materials like alloys, polyamides, epoxy resins, ABS and ceramics are used in the additive manufacturing process. The quality of the printed product depends on the feedstock quality and also 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 provide test plans and product testing to ensure specifications are met. 

 

TÜV SÜD'S SERVICES FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING / 3D PRINTING MATERIALS AND PRODUCT TESTING

TÜV SÜD validate the quality of AM / 3D printed products by testing their materials and properties based on related ISO and AST standard. We have a network of laboratories and specialised in-house additive manufacturing expert team to support feedstock material suppliers and manufacturers

 

WE PROVIDE TECHNICAL REPORTS AND TEST PLANS:

  • Latest testing requirements – We regularly review upcoming and newly release standards relevant to AM to provide the most up to date test plans.
  • Analysis of testing required – We provide analysis based on requirements and specification for the testing required. Examples of analysis include testing batches of recycled powders if they still retain the properties comparable to virgin powders, and testing if machine has no cross contamination when changing feedstock material.
