March 30, 2021
TÜV SÜD provides specialist training for the industrial additive manufacturing environment, in which compliance with AM-specific DIN/ISO/ASTM standards is required. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, TÜV SÜD’s training courses and seminars are being held online at present.
A total of eight subjects are addressed, including Fundamentals; Health and Safety; Specification of Parts for Purchase; Quality and Production Management; Risk Assessment and Management; Process Validation; Design Validation; and Industry Standards. The fee-based training courses make clear distinctions between the new technologies and their preceding manufacturing methods, and are aimed at implementing quality standards in a targeted manner.
“As industrialization advances in additive manufacturing, the need for specialist expertise is becoming increasingly urgent,” warns Gregor Reischle, head of Additive Manufacturing at TÜV SÜD. “In addition, qualifications in this field are often still based on individual solutions, although an integrated approach is the only way to ensure a company’s operations are successful along the entire value chain.”
Using examples from occupational medicine as a basis, the courses teach risk management as a systematic management process for the analysis, assessment and monitoring of risks. In addition, participants learn how to perform successful AM-specific process validation in quality control. Further aspects covered in the training include design rules for additive manufacturing and standardisation; the latter is a field in which good progress is already being made.
