3D Printing Conference Rapid.Tech 3D 2024

From Design to Disposal – the benefits of Digital Product Passports for Additive Manufacturing

3D Printing Conference powered by STRATASYS: We are looking forward to Dr. Ulrich Jahnke's (Additive Marking) presentation at the anniversary edition of Rapid.Tech 3D 2024.

This presentation will explore the potential of Digital Product Passports (DPPs) in supporting the growth of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry. We will delve into how DPPs can integrate into the Additive Manufacturing landscape by providing a robust framework for documenting product lifecycles – from design to production through to end of life. We will explore how this digital tool can provide a new way to document the Additive Manufacturing process and help take the technology into the next level.
The talk will present the complete process chain for DPP implementation, from creation through to product connectivity and data input. DPPs facilitate streamlined data management and provide stakeholders with new insights into the complete product lifecycle, supporting continuous improvement and process optimisation. Additionally, DPPs foster accountability among stakeholders and help industries minimise their environmental through transparent sustainability reporting.
Principally, the talk considers the advantages DPPs bring to Manufacturers across multiple industries: enhanced efficiency, quality assurance, and optimized workflows are among the key advantages that empower OEMs to navigate the challenges of the rapidly evolving additive manufacturing landscape. The adoption of Digital Product Passports emerges as a pivotal strategy for propelling the Additive Manufacturing industry towards a sustainable, efficient, and traceable future.
