TÜV SÜD offers AM virtual training series

April 8, 2021

TÜV SÜD, Munich, Germany, has introduced a virtual training series for Additive Manufacturing that will make clear distinctions between the new technologies and preceding manufacturing methods. The series is aimed at implementing high-quality standards in a targeted way.

The following fee-based courses will be offered: Fundamentals, Quality & Production Management, Specification of Parts for Purchase, Health & Safety, Risk Assessment & Management, Process Validation, Design Validation and Industry Standards (which includes DIN, ISO and ASTM). All eight of these seminars are delivered in English.

“As industrialisation advances in Additive Manufacturing, the need for specialist expertise is becoming increasingly urgent,” stated 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.”

To serve as the basis of reproducible product characteristics in small-batch-series production, the procurement of AM parts is an area that may be fraught with uncertainty over which requirements must be fulfilled by suppliers. This uncertainty can also extend to health and safety, where examples of how to conduct hazard assessment processes are as yet few and far between. Safety in handling testing and measurement equipment and moving machine parts must also be addressed.

With examples from occupational medicine as a basis, the courses aim to teach risk management as a systematic management process for the analysis, assessment and monitoring of risks. In addition, participants will learn how to perform successful AM-specific process validation in quality control.

Further aspects covered in the training series include design rules for Additive Manufacturing and standardisation.

More information about the training series can be found here.
