Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques have significant barriers to overcome in delivering a manufacturing process that produces consistent quality and safety.
Lloyd's Register and TWI have produced "Guidance Notes for the Certification of Metallic Parts made by Additive Manufacturing" to help manufacturers forge a path to certified AM parts.
The Guidance Notes provide a goal-based framework that manufacturers can follow to achieve certification with LR, and subsequently provide confidence to end users that a specific part manufactured using AM meets the required codes, standards, controls and best practises.
Key topics addressed in the Guidance Notes, and where LR can support your organisation further, include:
- Suitability for additive manufacturing
- Certification approach and activities
- Inspection and testing
- Organisational requirements
