EOS NickelAlloy IN939 from German 3D metals printer company, EOS, combines high-temperature strength – at over 1500 degrees F – with crack and corrosion resistance. Its potential ranges from industrial gas turbine and microturbine parts to turbochargers, power industry parts and other extreme-conditions applications.
Chiron Group’s flexible additive manufacturing machine – the Chiron AM Cube – is designed with laser metal deposition technology to work efficiently in the mechanical engineering, tool manufacturing, energy production, and aerospace sectors. Its three deposition heads can perform different functions on a single workpiece.
In its drive to develop an end-to-end solution for additive manufacturing, Siemens Digital Industries Software offers tools that simulate the printing process at various levels. To minimize the expensive quality-refinement process, modules identify and correct areas of malformation and shrinkage.
The maker of NeuBeam says the certification objectively affirms the quality of their innovation in metal AM for production applications, as well as the company’s commitment to customer satisfaction.
Luxembourg company is recognized for the additive manufacturing of carbide parts, providing solution for small volumes and high component complexity.
When coupled with an MPiec controller, machine tool builders and experienced CNC programmers can use Yaskawa Compass graphical user software to design HMI hybrid machines as well as 3D printing, shape cutting, and robotics.
Unlike electron beam and laser powder bed fusion (PBF), Wayland Additive’s Calibur 3 uses NeuBeam technology, which focuses heat on the part instead of the process bed. As a result, the machine is able to process refractory metals and highly reflective alloys.
Featuring a build volume of 600 mm x 550 mm, VELO3D’s extra-capacity Sapphire XC uses Flow print-preparation software and Assure quality assurance software to manufacture high-quality parts without using support structures.
Featuring two 300-watt lasers, melt pool and process monitoring, and end-to-end documentation that corroborates quality, Trumpf’s TruPrint 2000 requires fewer add-ons, making the entry-level investment lower for companies that want to get into additive manufacturing.
With a build envelope of 11 by 11 by 14 inches, SLM Solutions’ SLM 280 2.0 is ideal for medium-to-high-volume additive manufacturing. With its build envelope of almost 2 square feet, the 12-laser NXG XII is designed for peak production.
A partnership with Northwestern University expands in-process quality assurance technology across a broad array of 3d printing processes.
Although 3D metal printing is becoming more popular, finishing remains a challenging and arduous task. Understanding how post-processing works and how to measure results will help you optimize this crucial step.
Unison Ups Product Support Scope, Accessibility with ‘UltimateCare’
The rebranded service program facilitates selection of the right maintenance solutions, and also offers additional services such as CAD modellng, component prototyping and process optimization. Customers can choose services ala-carte or in tailored, bundled agreements.
Paperless Parts Launches Search Function to Expedite Quoting
Paperless Search, a digital search tool enhancing the quoting platform from Paperless Parts, provides easy access to all formats of historical data, and it’s available now to Paperless Parts customers.
In Development: New Laser System Creates Grease-Repellent Metal Surfaces
Funded by an EU grant, a European consortium is treating metal with high-power lasers that texture the surface with microscopic spikes that prevent grease and bacteria from sticking. Rough micro-topography acts like a bed of nails to stop dirt or liquid from attaching.
