Posted on Oct 06, 2020 by Kieran Vaughn

The second installment of the America Makes Future of the Supply Chain Q&A interview series revolves around how companies are currently building out quality management systems for additive manufacturing to ensure that the part specifications are reliably and repeatedly hit, empowering production runs.

Follow John Wilczynski (Executive Director, America Makes), Michael Shannon (Senior Manager, Hewlett-Packard), Lou Rassey (CEO, Fast Radius), Cullen Hilkene (CEO, 3Diligent), and Terry Wohlers (President, Wohlers Associates) on an in-depth discussion, and stay tuned for future videos in our series.

How Companies are Embracing Standards in Additive Quality

Talking Points

  1. 3Diligent allows customers to build out their production specs in ProdEX, and offers an inventory system that is pre-populated with America Makes certification requirements.
  2. Manufacturing companies are building a quality management system to contain the hundreds of variables evolved in the before, printing, and after-part-creation phases of a production line.  3Diligent Shopsight embeds a variety of quality management features to ensure repeatable outcomes.
  3. The design phase is crucial for mapping out the qualities of a desired technology, making sure certain processes aren’t forced upon a design when scale, economics, and repeatability point to a better process.
