Additive Manufacturing - Leading to Qualifications & Production

We help companies involved in development projects in Additive Manufacturing:
• In the choice of the best additive manufacturing process
• In the development of the production and it’s qualification
• On the justification of compliance with the standards or regulations


In line with NAMIC and WSG objectives, the Programme aims at speeding up the transfer of global capabilities into Singapore through imparting the methodology for additively manufactured part selection, design, manufacturing, post-processing and qualifications.






The general background is that repairing and manufacturing parts in the aerospace industry is one of the potential applications of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. In this sector, AM processes must be developed to meet the industry’s stringent requirements, ensuring that the products can achieve the robust performance levels established by traditional manufacturing methods, and most importantly comply with the regulation framework. Requirements for commercial aircraft parts which are mainly based on the regulations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and regulations of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

These regulations are extensive and detailed and the most relevant regulations in the context of AM can be found in CS-25, Book 1, Subpart D, Subsections CS 25.603 and CS 25.605. This state of art techniques must be applied in the validation of processes, in addition to the standards specific to the parts manufactured.

Who should attend:

Technical Director, industrial director, operations manager, mechanical designer, manufacturing engineer. People involved in incorporating additive manufacturing into their company’s production process. It applies to all sectors including and not limited to aerospace, medical, marine, oil & gas, automotive and many other industries.

Support on Qualification and Production:

We can support companies involved in development projects in AM:
• In the choice of the best additive manufacturing process
• In the development of the production and its qualification
• On the justification of compliance with the standards or regulations.

Following is an Illustration of the Processs:

Example of a Success Story

We would like to share a success story using an example of CETIM additive manufacturing qualification support. This project is in the medical sector, which is another sector filed with stringent rules for process management:

In the above example, we assisted our client to successfully produce 3 products and 4 more products are in the pipeline. A detailed description of our support are as follows

Customer’s Roles & ResponsibilitiesCetim’s Roles & Responsibilities
Identification of the need for its productIdentification of the relevant technology
Advice for design adaption required for the chosen design
Support for process development: machine parameter, etc…
Support for post process development: technology to choose for finishing, cleaning, etc…


Identification of standards to be met for the productSample manufacturing and characterization
Standard analyze, test plan definition, synthesis and report
Prototype manufacturing and testing
Purchase of the machineTraining, installation and operational qualification, report
Operational qualification: test plan development for demonstration of process stability, analyze and report, etc…

He has a Master Degree and a DESS (Diplôme d’Etude Supérieure Spécialisée) in Computer Integrated Manufacturing. He has gained more than twenty-five years’ experience in co-ordination and technical interventions in various R&D frameworks at National, European (FP, Leonardo, ERANET, INTERREG, Cleansky JU, FCH Ju) and International (Eurêka, IMS) levels. He is now responsible for global AM activities in CETIM.

Paul Calves, Pilot Line Project Manager

Profile: Paul had been very active for many years in metal powder process innovation. He was a pioneer with shock consolidation, a dynamic consolidation which is an experimental technic of consolidating powders using high pressure shock waves. He is a key experienced engineer in powder process and very efficient to develop and industrialize additive manufacturing process. Paul currently coordinates MBJ pilot line project at Region level with a strong focus on accelerated innovation and industrialisation of advanced mechanical solutions. With Paul, SMEs are supported in development of demonstrated technology towards first industrial prototypes. Begin of 2018, 9 industrials have joined on our Metal Binder Jetting pilot line.

Florence Doré, Powder Metallurgy Research Engineer

Profile: Florence has focussed her activity in powder processes: compaction, sintering and past years in additive manufacturing. She has supported numerous industrial companies with a large range of materials: steels, carbides, ceramics and polymers. Driven by SME’s and innovative companies, Florence Doré had developed a technological platform dedicated to powders with compaction, sintering and characterisation equipment. She has been head of training program for many years. From working primarily on generic additive manufacturing sessions in the beginning, she has initiated specific programs on design, inspection and many other necessary capabilities in additive manufacturing implementation.

Benoit Verquin, Additive Manufacturing Chief Technologist
