Service Highlight

Expertise for industrial additive manufacturing

Our training programme covers a host of seminars that communicate the quality-related aspects of am. The programme addresses all target groups, promoting across-the-board awareness of the special features of am covering a wide variety of company areas.

Acquire the expertise and skills you need to get you fit for high-end serial production. As a thirdparty training institute, we examine your expertise and ensure that you are familiar with the special features of AM production processes, take the standardisation of materials and processes in your company into consideration, and incorporate AM throughout your entire product development process. We thus enable you to offer your customers a consistent level of high quality.


Who benefits from our training programmes?

  • Designers: developers of AM components need to consider production-based characteristics. Unlike working within established production methods, designers of AM components need to explore new approaches.
  • System users: users of AM systems need to keep pace with market changes, and stay up to date on the progress and performance of new methods in additive manufacturing.
  • Machine operators: achieving high levels of quality requires care and attention, particularly in additive manufacturing, to ensure these often sensitive systems are operated correctly. Given this, operators need to be familiar with the manufacturing method in question, while additionally considering further aspects such as health- and safety-related issues.
  • Quality managers and production managers: quality assurance requires in-depth knowledge of all sources of faults typical in additive manufacturing.


Your added value

  • Gain competitive edge by demonstrating your qualifications and skills to your customers and project partners.
  • Become an expert in sustainable design and optimisation for quality projects.
  • Learn how to use and control quality and management techniques more efficiently, including the complex process chain of additive manufacturing.
  • Ensure compliance with health and safety requirements and gain the necessary knowledge for establishing a culture of continual improvement.
  • Define roles, skills and competencies more clearly to ensure more transparency and standardised communication throughout the process chain.
  • Identify the numerous quality-related factors influencing the additive-manufacturing process, in order to minimise your risks.
