3DEO, Inc., a metal Additive Manufacturing technology company based in Los Angeles, California, USA, has received ISO 9001:2015 certification, which will enable it to further develop the commercialisation of its AM technology.

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for a quality management system (QMS). The certification allows companies to operate more effectively on several different levels, including the ability to focus on customer requirements, ensure consistent production and continuously improve all aspects of the production process.

3DEO explained that the overall process of ISO 9001 certification has taken the company just three months, whereas the normal implementation time is six to twelve months. The company was able to achieve implementation within this timeframe because its factory and its systems were designed and built with process control and quality production methodology as a requirement.

“The ISO 9001 certification is a terrific milestone for 3DEO,” commented Matt Petros, 3DEO’s CEO. “A strong quality management system is the backbone of any world-class production line. The ISO certification marks an important step in realising 3DEO’s long-term vision of leveraging next-generation technologies to build the world’s highest quality, data-driven factory of the future. In the previous generation of manufacturing, spot checks and random sampling were best of class.”

Petros continued, “3DEO is building a dynamic production line with real-time streaming data that allows ongoing monitoring and end-to-end closed-loop feedback. For 3DEO, ISO is the starting point of what we expect to become the next generation of manufacturing.”

Marty McGough, COO at 3DEO, stated, “We were very excited to implement ISO 9001 and achieve this world-class certification. Our starting point was a controlled process that provided us a stable base to work from. The certification has been very helpful in further accelerating our continuous improvement program throughout the entire organisation. We’re looking forward to continuing our work in this area and excelling at our ISO and industry specific certification requirements in the coming years.”
