3DEO Achieves ISO 9001:2015 with Best-In-Class Process Control
3DEO, a metal 3D printing company based in Los Angeles, California, has received ISO 9001:2015 certification in order to further the commercialization of its technology.
Matt Petros, 3DEO’s CEO, commented, “The ISO 9001 certification is a terrific milestone for 3DEO. A strong quality management system is the backbone of any world-class production line. The ISO certification marks an important step in realizing 3DEO’s long-term vision of leveraging next-generation technologies to build the world’s highest quality, data-driven factory of the future. In the previous generation of manufacturing, spot checks and random sampling were best of class. 3DEO is building a dynamic production line with real-time streaming data that allows ongoing monitoring and end-to-end closed-loop feedback. For 3DEO, ISO is the starting point of what we expect to become the next generation of manufacturing.”
ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for a quality management system (QMS). The certification allows companies to operate more effectively on several different levels, including the ability to focus on customer requirements, ensure consistent production, and continuously improve all aspects of the production process.
“We were very excited to implement ISO 9001 and achieve this world-class certification. Our starting point was a controlled process that provided us a stable base to work from,” said Marty McGough, Chief Operations Officer at 3DEO. “The certification has been very helpful in further accelerating our continuous improvement program throughout the entire organization. We’re looking forward to continuing our work in this area and excelling at our ISO and industry specific certification requirements in the coming years.”
The overall process of ISO 9001 Certification has taken just three months, whereas the normal implementation is 6-12 months. The company was able to do this because the factory and its systems were designed and built with process control and quality production methodology as a requirement.
