Additive manufacturing (AM) company 3D Metalforge has received ISO9001:2015 accreditation.

The certification came from DNV GL, a third party certification body focused on the maritime, oil and gas and energy industries. According to the company, the ISO9001 standard emphasizes risk-based thinking and promotes the adoption of a process-oriented approach. As such, it is particularly strong on seeking to reduce errors, both in preventing mistakes recurring and by identifying potential mistakes before they occur.

‘Through our strong partnership approach, 3D Metalforge hopes that our ISO9001:2015 certification will provide added confidence to our customers and stakeholders as we collaborate to jointly navigate new opportunities and challenges in the world of metal additive manufacturing,’ said CEO Matthew Waterhouse.

South East Asia-based 3D Matters, sister company of 3D Metalforge, also undertook the ISO9001:2015 certification process and received the accreditation at the same time.
