Pilot Project on Technology Readiness of Additive Manufacturing in Maritime and Oil & Gas Industry Sectors
Many M&O industry players are very interested to take advantage of AM’s promising capabilities; however, they have also expressed lack of confidence in using AM parts in place of the final products produced by traditional subtractive machining.
This pre-qualification pilot project is focusing on AM repair applications, repairing strategies, testing protocols based on TQ (Technology Qualification) approach. It aims to guide manufacturers through the approval process to adopt of AM as qualified manufacturing procedure.
- Enabled Sembcorp Marine to establish proper 3D printing procedure for certification. Sembcorp Marine’s 3D-printing procedures and specifications have received endorsement from DNV GL.
- Standard documentation and work operating procedure for AM system has been established.
- Enabled manufacturers to select suitable part for qualification and field implementation.
