Manufacturing Industry

As an entrepreneur in the manufacturing industry, you face high stakeholder and customer demands and an ever more globalising market. Supply chains stretch far and wide and involve many subcontractors. Everything needs to function perfectly, on a high quality level, without interruptions, within budget and according to schedule. Kiwa is well aware of your needs; our well-trained and experienced experts can help you with vendor inspections, quality assessments, welder qualification, NDT and PED services.

Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU and ISO 9001

In Europe the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU is there to ensure the safety of pressure equipment and for that reason indispensable for the manufacturing industry. The PED covers pressure equipment through design, manufacture and conformity assessments. By obtaining a PED approval you show your customers that your products are safe for use, and that you value quality.

The PED consists of many modules which depend on the complexity and risk connected to the object or vessel. Kiwa can help you during the design phase, construction phase. This can be done through inspection for single units or certification in case of multiple or mass produced components.

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing

Reliability assessment of Additive Manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, processes and products are needed to create a chain of trust through the manufacturing processes and shorten the time-to-market of these products. We believe that AM is going to be a mainstream industrial production technique in a near future. The faster it improves its reliability and market acceptance, the sooner this future will become reality. That is why certification for product and process quality of AM is possible within Kiwa.
