Siemens Gas and Power and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) have announced their collaboration on the development of training services in Additive Manufacturing during Formnext 2019. The services will be offered through Materials Solutions, a Siemens business, as an extension of its additive services portfolio.
The agreement is said to lay the groundwork for the creation of unique AM training solutions to better support Siemens’ customers on their additive journey. The course curriculum will cover the end-to-end Additive Manufacturing value chain and offer customers real-world applications experience from developing business cases, design for AM, material considerations, through to printing and post-printing process know-how.
“The agreement between Siemens and ASME is another milestone to support further adoption of Additive Manufacturing as an industrialised technology,” stated Markus Seibold, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing at Siemens Power Generation Operations. “Cross-industry collaborations to advance AM adoption will promote innovation in design, material development, and real, functional applications across the industry. Thanks to the collaboration with ASME, we can provide the experience of our experts to our customers and industries all over the world.”
“ASME is dedicated to fostering innovation in the engineering community,” commented Tom Costabile, ASME Executive Director/CEO. “Every day, additive technologies continue to change the manufacturing landscape. The combination of ASME’s agile course development methodology and Siemens’ wealth of real-world expertise in Additive Manufacturing enables us to share that knowledge through dynamic, practical learning experiences that will be readily accessible by customers and engineers everywhere.”
