Helping companies take their first step into industrial grade additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM) and the underlying technology of 3D printing are on the rise. With numerous requirements and standards that companies must meet, you require a trusted partner to help you implement AM and address challenges during the implementation process. 

TÜV SÜD can assist you in this transformation process towards Industrial Additive Manufacturing readiness by assessing your manufacturing process and supply chain. We can provide specialist staff training and testing for feedstock materials and facilities to the applicable standards. 



  • Automotive
  • Aviation & Aerospace
  • Electrical / Electronics Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Medical Devices
  • Oil & Energy


We took the convener role within the ISO/ASTM 261 and DIN-SPEC 17071 standardisation committees. We are also part of developing the upcoming standards as seen below:

  • ISO/ASTM PWI 52920-2 and Additive Manufacturing – qualification principles – conformity assessment at Industrial Additive Manufacturing centres.
  • ISO/ASTM PWI 52920-1 and Additive Manufacturing – qualification principles – conformity assessment for AM system in industrial use.




We ensure your printed products are compliant and certified to all relevant industry standards, especially for medicine, automotive, aerospace and construction. 

Backed by expertise in additive manufacturing best practices and the in-depth knowledge of material & manufacturing industries, TÜV SÜD helps to validate the quality of your products by testing the materials according to their requirements, based on the related DIN, ISO and ASTM standards.
