How to bring on Metal AM as a validated process for certified parts
Metal AM continues to prove itself as a high value-add process for producing qualified parts, offering tremendous competitive advantages where properly implemented. Yet due to limited experience with the technology, many companies are unsure how to integrate metal AM with minimal friction. Find out how 3D Systems’ Customer Innovation Centers are bridging the gap between interest and capability through AM expert consultation and AM training services.
The CIC approach to qualified production
Developing & Controlling a Process Flow
Our expert team takes a phased approach to help you establish and control your AM production workflow, covering fundamental aspects like calibration to AM-specific aspects like powder handling.
Our methodical approach to process validation ensures your equipment is properly installed, operating to deliver the expected results, and is repeatable over a series of unique builds.
An effective process delivers parts that meet their performance requirements. 3D Systems helps validate final parts to ensure they meet the demands of their application.
3D Systems offers several avenues to launch into production. Companies can outsource volume part fulfillment to 3D Systems and our network of certified partners, or get help transitioning to AM within their own facilities.
