EOS has awarded its first Additive Manufacturing Quality (AMQ) certification in North America to Incodema3D, a user of direct metal 3D printing. According to the company, this certification strengthens Incodema3D’s position in the AM market by ensuring customers a reliable supply chain for additively manufactured (AM) parts and components.

The AMQ certification is a holistic assessment conducted by EOS that measures all quality-management elements of a company’s AM production chain with the goal of highest part quality, transparency and repeatability. This qualification was developed in cooperation with German based TÜV Süd. 

“Our AMQ program underscores EOS’ dedication to quality assurance for our partners and the end customer, and I firmly believe that this kind of standardization is critical to increasing mainstream adoption of AM,” said Dr. Gregory Hayes, director of applications and consulting for EOS North America. “Our EOS consulting team—called Additive Minds—partners with our customers, like Incodema3D, to bring this level of quality assurance to their entire organization, arming them with a key differentiator among the competitive set.”

As the first North American AMQ recipient, Incodema3D deepens its partnership with EOS. The company initially purchased two metal AM systems in late 2012. Through efforts in quality assurance together with EOS, the company created a scalable DMLS production service. Incodema3D has been AS 9100 certified since December 2015 and AMQ certified since December 2016.
