In all industries, standards ensure that processes do not have to be redefined again and again and that there is an approach that is generally recognized. In additive manufacturing, contrary to widespread assumptions, standardization is already on the right track. DIN committees and the Joint Committee of ISO and ASTM unite a large number of relevant market participants and already provide a good range of standards. The question arises in which areas standardization is advantageous for whom. Particular focus is placed on safety-relevant areas. The training will enable you to deal appropriately with current standards and evaluate the benefits to your business of applying standards. In addition, you will learn how you can proactively follow the current developments in standardization in the AM area and thus minimize risks.
