RINA publishes maritime 3D printing guidelines

RINA has released its ‘Guidelines for the certification of metallic products made by additive manufacturing’ for the marine Industry, to ensure that each step in the additive manufacturing process for items to be used in a maritime context is repeatable, documented and can be verified by a third party.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The guidelines aim to help in overseeing additive manufacturing processes both internally and externally, defining all aspects of the process, including materials and mechanical properties, to ensure different subcontractors are producing to necessary product specifications.

“The guidelines, in fact, meet an increasing demand from various sectors. They will help organisations take all steps of the process into account to enable them to produce a verifiable, consistent approach to this modern manufacturing technology, so they can be assured they are getting the product characteristics, quality and consistency they require,” explained Andrea Bombardi, EVP industry at RINA.

“The significant difference between the new RINA guidelines and those that have been previously published is that these give a complete framework for organisations, regardless of industry.”

“RINA has vast experience and expertise in additive manufacturing technology and the development of specialist materials such as steel alloys to meet specific process demands. These guidelines have been carefully produced by experts in these areas to ensure companies have complete control over their processes and final product quality.”{/mprestriction}
