SAMSON awarded TÜV SÜD certification

SAMSON has been certified for its additively manufactured pressure equipment for use within the scope of the European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (PED). The certificate issued by TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH confirms that SAMSON is qualified to additively manufacture high-quality pressure equipment in series and to place this equipment on the market. This certification is a major achievement in valve engineering.

Additive manufacturing is of strategic importance to SAMSON since it opens up new opportunities that go beyond conventional manufacturing methods. 3D printing, as the method is more commonly known, offers SAMSON new ways of optimizing its products and supply chain processes to better serve its customers. Additive manufacturing also helps SAMSON meet the increasingly stringent requirements that apply in certain industries, such as chemicals, petrochemicals, or oil and gas.

Valves are classified as pressure equipment if they are operated at a maximum permissible pressure (PS) of more than 0.5 bar. The Directive 2014/68/EU applies to the economic operators (manufacturers, authorized representatives, importers, and distributors), material manufacturers, operators of pressure equipment as well as the notified bodies or user inspectorates, which are commissioned to conduct conformity assessments. The Directive regulates the design, manufacture, and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies.
