Singapore 3D printing service bureau Spare Parts 3D has joined a DNV GL Joint Industry Project (JIP) for additive manufacturing.
Together, Spare Parts 3D and the global quality assurance and risk assessment company will work on standard procedure for integrating 3D printing within marine, offshore, oil and gas industries.
Opportunity - DNV - GL - JIP - Qualification
“We see a fantastic opportunity in collaborating with DNV GL on this JIP to communalize and frontload the qualification & certification efforts and to build a Marine and O&G industry standard,” comments Paul Guillaumot, CEO of Spare Parts 3D.
“QUALIFICATION OF AM PARTS IS NOT A WORK THAT YOU CAN START WHEN YOUR EQUIPMENT IS DOWN,”
Ambition - Collaboration - Value - Additive - Manufacturing
“Our ambition for this collaboration is to finally deliver the promised value of Additive Manufacturing for Marine and O&G on-demand spares produced locally to cover shortages.”
For industry-wide adoption, additive manufacturing is in need of engineering-grade standardization and safety guidelines. Recently, Global standards development organization ASTM International published a guideline for powder bed fusion 3D printers, and subsequently launched its Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence to introduce more standards to the industry.
Expertise - DNV - GL - Classification - Guideline
Harnessing its industry-specific expertise, DNV GL published its first classification guideline for additive manufacturing (AM) in the maritime and oil & gas industries in December 2017. Following this, the company inaugurated its Global Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence within Singapore’s National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC), and has since launched the 3D printing approval of manufacturer (AoM) program.
