Australia’s largest 3D printing facility, GoProto ANZ has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 quality management systems (QMS) accreditation.

AMTIL member GoProto operates six different additive manufacturing technologies in-house for prototyping and end-use applications, as well as providing 3D scanning, machining and injection moulding services. ISO 9001 is quickly gaining acceptance among 3D printing and contract manufacturers as a foundation for their quality programs. The stringent process analyses a business’s operations from top to bottom, seeking commitment to quality at every level.

“ISO is one of the most rigorous and well-regarded standards in the world,” says James Sanders, General Manager of GoProto ANZ. “We sought to become certified as part of our longstanding commitment to quality and a further step of our Industry 4.0 journey. I am extremely proud of our team’s efforts, which proves their commitment to providing high quality parts and excellent customer service. We’re dedicated to constant improvement and making sure we have the processes and systems in place for this.”

GoProto’s ISO certification was accelerated as a result of a grant awarded by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability, in recognition of the company’s potential to manufacture aerospace and defence components in-country, which will contribute significantly to Australia’s sovereign industrial capability priorities.
