The measurements you need for your Installation Qualification (IQ)

The IQ is the first step in the qualification of a manufacturing process. For a metal LPBF process, this means that the machine must undergo several tests before being used in production. They aim at demonstrating that the machine matches the expected performance which is specified jointly by the machine OEM and the customer.

Data Fusion – Eddy Current and Camera images

AMiquam releases a new Data Fusion solution for metal AM, merging AMiquam electromagnetic imaging and off-axis optical imaging (present in every machine). Combining ground truth and coverage, a new dimension for quality management of the metal AM process. Ready to create machine learning data sets for AI with your data, improving compliance and simplifying qualification. Many thanks to our partner Eric Baustert from Volum-e for letting us share the data.

AMiquam product supporting LPBF process qualification

Installation, Operation, and Performance Qualification are core components of the quality system of any company producing parts by means of Laser Powder Bed Fusion. A new technical specification has been issued by ISO and ASTM with recommendations on how to implement them. An inspirational statement provided in this document and motivating the qualifications efforts is…
