Reduced gas spending and environmental impact are big with electric cars. But instead of refilling, the need to pull over for recharging has still limited them. What if that changed? Take a closer look at a new concept that is pushing the limits of what is known today.
Producing metal parts in a powder bed fusion process is proving to be a game changer in the energy sector, where it generates new opportunities to produce previously impossible geometries in internal cooling channels or undercuts that are used in all sorts of heat exchangers and turbine generator systems.
How do you economically produce huge parts with intricate geometry that has a tendency to warp but must withstand critical applications in a demanding environment? Here’s the answer.
Here are five important aspects of the design and manufacturing process that everyone should understand to properly and successfully implement metal additive manufacturing within your company.
Because metal additive manufacturing processes are complex and require extensive material and process knowledge, it can be difficult for a metal fabricator to see how or when 3D printing might fit. To help make sense of it all, let’s consider the basics of additive manufacturing and 3D printing and how it all relates to metal fabrication.
This deal expands their 3D printing capabilities in Europe and the U.S. so they can become an independent service provider of AM components.
The center places their laser processing, micro applications and coating technology in close proximity to key customers and partners in high-tech markets.
Magnet Applications and ORNL have 3D printed NdFeB magnets that outperform traditional bonded magnets, and with less waste.
The TruPrint 1000 laser metal fusion system from TRUMPF is a perfect fit for job shops, medical or dental customers, or for R&D environments.
Additive manufacturing enables layer-by-layer processes to fabricate three-dimensional products. See the continued improvements in materials and processes that are producing more industrial additive solutions than ever.
The spindle-powered wireless 3D Print Head from Hurco enables shops with no solid modeling experience to transform their WinMax part programs into a 3D printed rapid prototype directly on their CNC machine.
