Quality Assurance in the age of Additive Manufacturing – A dive into Sascha Eksell’s work at AMEXCI
The career of Sascha Eksell, a Quality Engineer with a background of 15 years in the manufacturing industry, took an interesting turn when a former colleague introduced him to AMEXCI, a company at the forefront of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry.
Sascha is 35 years old and currently reside in Motala with his partner and his two children. During his first visit at AMEXCI, he had the opportunity to learn more about the cutting-edge technologies they employ and the innovative solutions they provide to their clients. This experience piqued his interest in Additive Manufacturing.
Fascinated by the innovative solutions offered by AM, Sascha quickly developed a keen interest in this field and his background at Toyota Material Handling as a Quality Engineer (QCE) helped him to employ his expertise even in a completely new field.
– My innate drive for problem-solving and commitment to delivering top quality have steered me towards a career in quality assurance. During my tenure at Toyota, I gained valuable experience in implementing quality control systems, ensuring compliance with industry standards, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement to enhance the overall performance of the organization.
As a Quality Engineer at AMEXCI, his role involves overseeing and enhancing the manufacturing processes to ensure optimal product quality.
– I conduct evaluations and risk assessments to identify potential issues and implement improvements. Additionally, I’m part of internal and external audits while collaborating closely with the shop floor team to address any deviations. Furthermore, I facilitate internal training to promote a culture of quality and continuous improvement within the organization. AM offers unique advantages in terms of design freedom, customization, material usage, on-demand production, and supply chain flexibility. These factors can contribute to improved quality in comparison to traditional manufacturing methods. However, it is essential to continue investing in research and development to address challenges such as material properties, process control, and standardization to ensure consistent quality across the industry.
The future of Additive Manufacturing (AM) looks promising, with advancements in materials, multi-material printing, process control, software tools, standardization, hybrid manufacturing, and AI integration.
– I believe that these developments will improve part quality, expand applications, and increase AM adoption across industries. It’s great to be part of this journey.
