DNV has announced a new service specification document for additive manufacturing companies. The service aims to accelerate digital transformation of the energy industry and the adoption of AM within this segment.
As a reminder, DNV GL was the first assurance and risk management company that paved the way for a more standardized use of AM within the oil, gas & maritime industries. As all companies that operate in this market know, building trust in ‘printed’ parts is key to unlocking this potential.
In this vein, the new service specification (SE), DNVGL-SE-0568 aims to define DNV’s additive manufacturing qualification scheme and provide the basis for obtaining and retaining DNV statements and certificates for the endorsement of facilities and digital products/services, qualification of manufacturers, build processes, parts and part families, AM machine(s) and equipment and AM personnel.
This is in accordance with the industry standard DNVGL-ST-B203, that DNV created for additive manufacturing in the oil and gas, energy, digital and heavy industry sectors.
“Through this service specification DNV provides AM supply chains with assurance that equipment for manufacturing printed parts meet high standards of quality and integrity. Furthermore, ensuring that materials used to produce AM parts are of the right quality. The DNVGL-SE-0568 service specification will ensure that safety and quality standards for additively manufactured parts are confirmed to, in order to build trust within the supply chain and to gain the support and buy-in of end users”, concludes Brice Le Gallo, Regional Director, Energy Systems, APAC and Director of the Global Additive Manufacturing Centre.
