Adding value with our service portfolio
The certification mark applies to the 3D printing service expertise of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) centres.
The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. ‘Additive Manufacturer’ indicates a production site operating AM machines and offering parts produced by 3D printing, with a focus on premium customer-service quality and part quality as well as health and safety considerations. The quality criteria are defined in the DIN SPEC 17071/ISO/ASTM 52920 standard and are independently audited by TÜV SÜD experts.
The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD is based on numerous standards such as:
The service competence for consulting for and production of additive manufactured components is state of the art. Certified companies are able to transfer and comply with requirements for series AM by defining and adhering to (process) parameters.
Reproducibility and traceability of the pre-/in-/post-processes are guaranteed. This includes CAD/CAM data preparation, handling the AM systems (especially loading and unloading), material handling, post-processing of the 3D-printed components, maintenance procedures and expert machine calibration.
We check the incoming goods of the starting material, followed by the material flow within the production (including preparation and disposal). This results in resilient material characteristics on the 3D-printed material.
