For many, metal additive manufacturing (AM) means change. It offers unique benefits that enable improvements to high value products in regulated industries, but how can the risks of a change in manufacturing processes mitigated without a deep understanding of the new process? Setting up an AM process that can be validated is far faster and more straightforward when you can leverage data captured over a decade plus of full-scale metal additive manufacturing. Learn from Jeph Ruppert, in a mixture of expertise and solutions how to validate and verify this game-changing technology for your application.
Topics covered include:
- A comprehensive overview of pre-validation steps
- A detailed and proven validation strategy (85+ 510(K)s and CE marks and counting)
- Submission to regulatory agencies and scaling production
