Siemens Gas and Power partners with ASME to develop additive manufacturing training services
Dennis Kilian (second from right), Managing Director of ASME, and his team visited the Siemens booth at Formnext 2019 for the official announcement of the training collaboration.
The course curriculum will cover the end-to-end additive value chain and offer customers real-world applications experience from developing business cases, design for AM, material considerations, through to printing and post-printing process know-how.
“The agreement between Siemens and ASME is another milestone to support further adoption of additive manufacturing as an industrialized technology,” explains Markus Seibold, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing at Siemens Power Generation Operations. “Cross-industry collaborations to advance AM adoption will promote innovation in design, material development, and real, functional applications across the industry. Thanks to the collaboration with ASME, we can provide the experience of our experts to our customers and industries all over the world.”
“ASME is dedicated to fostering innovation in the engineering community”, says ASME Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile. “Every day, additive technologies continue to change the manufacturing landscape. The combination of ASME’s agile course development methodology and Siemens’ wealth of real-world expertise in additive manufacturing enables us to share that knowledge through dynamic, practical learning experiences that will be readily accessible by customers and engineers everywhere.”
Siemens Gas and Power is a pioneer in additive manufacturing and uses the technology for rapid prototyping and solving complex customer challenges through high-end production parts for customers in the aerospace, automotive and other high-performance industries, through its subsidiary Materials Solutions. Materials Solutions is industrializing the additive manufacturing of gas turbine components and has now moved into serial production for applications such as the pre-combustion swirlers for the Siemens SGT-8000H gas turbine.
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions for real-world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, and skill development across all engineering disciplines while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education, and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
