Additive technologies are acquiring an increasing importance in the industrial production and in different areas of application.
This is possible thanks to the numerous potentials they offer in terms of design freedom, speed, absence of molds. However, to have quality products, their use as a manufacturing system requires the development of all the numerous aspects that contribute to the result:
✔ material used
✔ validity check of the printing parameters
✔ piece arrangement in the work chamber
In a sector not yet regulated or standardized such as the Additive Manufacturing, knowledge of the technology represents an important opportunity for companies that want to guarantee the quality of their 3D printing products and processes.
TEC Eurolab supports companies in the transition from traditional industrial processes to additive manufacturing, accompanying them along the entire process of experimentation, industrialization and qualification.
For instance, TEC Eurolab can provide companies with valuable support both in the characterization of materials, through multiple static and dynamic tests, and in the analysis of the finished component. Thanks to the consolidated experience, the synergy with which the various departments operate and the provision of advanced instrumentation, the center provides specific information, performs tests that comply with standards, accompanies the customer in evaluating the results of the analysis and suggests possible improvements to be made to the project or additive manufacturing process settings. The support offered to companies begins already in the pre-analysis phase, when the project is started together with the customer, to continue in the test phases and, subsequently, with the analysis of the test results.
The most commonly used materials in the additive manufacturing process are:
nickel alloys (including Inconel)
At TEC Eurolab's facilities for destructive and non-destructive tests and product validation it is possible to carry out tests of various kinds on
✔ metallic powders
✔ specimens made in additive manufacturing (3D printing)
✔ finished components
TEC Eurolab Academy supports freelancers, quality control technicians, designers and engineers, with scheduled and custom training courses, with the aim of providing vertical skills based on the different phases of the 3D printing process in which they are involved.
The training program is divided into theoretical thematic modules, starting with the principles of additive technology, combined with practical modules related to risks, equipment cleaning and maintenance, up to specific modules for destructive and non-destructive testing.
The certification of skills represents an important opportunity for all those who intend to enrich and add value to their curriculum. A sector such as that of Additive Manufacturing, in which strong growth and expansion has produced considerable theoretical and application knowledge, requires certified figures who can guarantee the possession of skills in the sector.
The certification is aimed at companies in the sector that want to guarantee the qualification and specialization of their staff, ensuring a higher quality of services and products offered to the market. The different certification profiles are therefore aimed at designers, operators, quality control technicians, but also freelance consultants in the sector who want to increase their knowledge and enrich their curriculum.
After passing the certification exam, a performance and competences certificate with the respective license will be issued. A certificate of participation will also be issued at the end of the attendance of each thematic module of the training course.
