4th AM Qualifications Workshop

4th AM Qualifications Workshop

The 4th AM Qualifications Workshop, hosted by EWF,
took place on the 28th and 29th of October 2019 in Porto Salvo (Portugal),
counting with the participation of 13 representatives from Industrial
Organisations, Research Centers and Universities, as well as other experts in
Additive Manufacturing.

The event was an opportunity to gather all these
professionals around EWF’s AM Qualifications, focusing on the Metal AM Designer
(to validate its structure for DED and PBF Processes and discuss possible Case
Studies to be used for evaluation) and the Metal AM Supervisor.

This event also had a World Cafe, carried out in the
scope of the SAM project, where all participants had the opportunity to network
and discuss how AM will be implemented in the next 5 years in terms of Sectors,
Materials and Processes at a European level. 

This was a fruitful activity, providing concrete
results that allowed us to become aware of the urgency to develop specific
Competence Units for materials and processes.
