Approval in Rail

Regulatory boundary conditions and approval procedures form an essential influence- and success-factor for the establishment of new production technologies.

When MGA was founded, the regulatory approval of additively manufactured, safety-relevant components especially for rail traffic systems was identified as a priority topic. This working group focuses on the following topics, to advance the additive manufacturing of safety-relevant (spare-) parts:

approval
  • null

    Reduction of rail-specific approval hurdles for AM parts through cross-sectoral cooperation

  • null

    Development and introduction of a generic qualification path for the approval of safety-relevant components within the railway sector to abolish recurring, part-specific approval procedures with inherent cost- and time-intensive efforts.

  • null

    Assurance of product quality, product safety and warranty
