Additive Manufacturing is making its approach into varied industries as a viable method for serial manufacturing. Its advantages in design freedom, lead time discount and provide chain advantages are clear, but the shortage of related requirements is limiting mass adoption. That is the primary purpose for DNV to create the Additive Manufacturing requirements DNVGL-ST-B203 for the Power and Maritime industries. ProGRAM JIP Part II has seen Electron Beam Powder Mattress Fusion (EB-PBF) know-how efficiently added to the usual. Following JIP Part II, BMT Aerospace has chosen DNV for Facility Certification and Half Manufacturing Specification (PPS) for EB-PBF course of, in keeping with the DNV service specification DNVGL-ST-0568.
Certifying an AM facility to a globally acknowledged DNV’s AM ‘Facility Certification’ commonplace corresponding to DNVGL-ST-B203 for the Power and Maritime industries, offers assurance that the certified facility meets the rigorous standards, confirmed by certified AM specialists. AM course of qualification offers peace of thoughts to end-user clients with a robust emphasis on the reliability and functionality verification of AM producers. That approach, certification holds extra worth to clients, regulators, or others who’re in want of licensed AM components.
“DNV facility certification and half household qualification is essential for BMT aerospace to assist our progress goal in Power and Oil & Gasoline utility space. We see the nice potential of AM in these industries, and clearly, these certifications will present us to create belief with our end-user clients with the fitting stage of assurance and assist them to combine our companies of their just-in-time manufacturing provide chain. With this certification we’re additionally wanting ahead to offering our clients’ crucial confidence within the high quality and repeatability of our AM course of.” stated Ewald Goossens, Improvements & New Applied sciences Supervisor at BMT Aerospace.
Dr. Sastry Kandukuri, World AM Follow Lead and Senior Principal Supplies Specialist at DNV’s Power Methods Enterprise Unit in Norway, stated the next on the usage of the Additive Manufacturing requirements DNVGL-ST-B203 for the Power and Maritime industries for facility certification.
“DNV’s Facility Certification relies on our intensive expertise and helps the producers with crucial consciousness about high quality necessities of industry-recognized requirements, establish and mitigate manufacturing dangers, and serves as a foundation for closing and managing the gaps. Our present clients and potential purchasers are more and more eager about benchmarking of the AM amenities they wished to make use of in future initiatives. We’re very comfortable to see that BMT Aerospace has chosen to work with us and we’re wanting ahead so as to add worth via our competence, integrity and independence”
