One of the biggest challenges facing widespread adoption of metal AM in critical industries like aerospace, automotive, and medical devices is the issue of Qualification and Certification (Q&C). As AM technology matures and more complex components are built, there is a greater emphasis on developing rapid Q&C methods to be able to unlock the full potential of AM. Computational modeling, such as VEXTEC’s ICME-based VPS-MICRO® Software, can provide valuable information to decision makers when it comes to Q&C considerations in additive manufacturing.
