With 3D printers available commercially and becoming less expensive every year, the development of additive manufactured drones for both commercial and military capabilities is growing in importance. Welcome to the Age of the Jetsons.
Quality assurance and in-process monitoring are essential to move additive manufacturing from making prototypes into first-class shop production. Here’s how it works.
Of all the advances taking place in the aerospace industry, none holds more promise than additive manufacturing, a disruptive mother lode of quicker throughput, more cost-effective components, and unimaginable freedom of design in lightweight construction and function integration.
Fabricators must recognize how metal additive manufacturing is rapidly changing the manufacturing landscape. Some have already been leapfrogged by their competition – and are completely unaware of what has happened.
The days when precision tools and additive manufacturing strategies could not co-exist are history.
The 3-Dimensional Services Group's new site provides convenient access to a wide range of information sources, including videos and downloadable case studies.
Vehicles will be 3D printed on site using Cincinnati Incorporated BAAM systems at a Local Motors Microfactory.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade 2016 is the most prestigious corporate achievement that any UK business can attain.
Cincinnati Incorporated will display the Big Area Additive Manufacturing machine that uses the chassis, drives and control of CI’s laser cutting system as the base to extrude hot thermoplastic to build parts layer-by-layer.
The sky is the limit as partnerships between private manufacturers and scientific research laboratories expand the boundaries of size and accelerate the development of new industrial 3D printing systems that can create polymer parts up to 10 times larger than those currently producible.
The automatic sieving station continuously safeguards the powder quality and thus the component quality too.
