Certification is a major obstacle to the deployment of AM. It is magnified by a number of factors affecting part performance and by the broad knowledge set required to consistently produce conforming builds. New simulations, process controls, and inspections are used to facilitate certification.
An often overlooked critical component to the solution is the role of qualified workers with the technology and supply chain for specific industry applications. Chris Krampitz, strategy & innovation director for UL's Digital Manufacturing Technologies division, will discuss the criticality of this component as AM technology is applied in production, as quality systems evolve to meet specific requirements, and as global manufacturing faces an impending skilled labor shortage.
