Additive Manufacturing Powder Supply Chain: Fundamentals for Highly Regulated Industries


This paper aims to help companies working in highly regulated industries ascertain what to look for in an additive manufacturing feedstock supplier and how to help their current supply chain mature. 

We focus on the four main pillars that serve as the foundation that allows the metal additive manufacturing raw material supply chain to mature within highly regulated industries, particularly the medical and aerospace device industries;

  1. Quality: It is imperative to ensure continuous improvement of products and processes.
     
  2. Service: Additive manufacturing offers a wide range of possibilities and there is not a single solution to all business cases.
     
  3. Performance: Additive manufacturing is a dynamic process that requires stability over thousands of layers for each part.
     
  4. Collaboration: Accelerating large scale adoption can be achieved only by sharing best practices to lower risk and increase stability.
