When Should You Use 3D Printing for Production?

There are many reasons why 3D printing may be suitable for your hardware design and development cycle. But what about using 3D printing for full-scale production? Here are some considerations when deciding whether to use 3D printing for high-volume, end-use custom parts.

MICRO MOLDING FOR MICRO-ELECTRONICS

Perhaps like no other, the field of microelectronics exemplifies the drive towards miniaturization, the obvious reduction in size of everyday household appliances and cell phones showing the extent to which products containing electronic components have been reduced in size.

Smart Manufacturing Control

This article discusses new technology features within the CNC, the HMI (Human Machine Interface) and making the process easier to manage, as well as how that relates to the machine motion control and specifically for multi-axis applications.

World's first 3D printed FRP footbridge paves way for circular composites

The circular composite footbridge is made from a fiber reinforced thermoplastic called Arnite® which combines high performance with circularity.

Vertical Integration - The Key to Micro Molding Success

Put simply, vertical integration is a strategic structure which means that a company owns the supply chain for its products or services. Fundamentally, this is considered to be important as it implies a certain and robust degree of control over operations.

What is Cast Urethane Manufacturing?

Manufacturers, engineers, and designers are looking for processes that are less costly and have a smaller impact on the environment. Cast urethane manufacturing is one way that manufacturers and other stakeholders can do both.

Micro Molding and Micro Optics

In general terms, however, micro-optics are typically tiny lenses, beam-splitters, prisms, light-pipes, and other optical components in the range of 20 microns to 1 mm in size, or larger optical components with micron features.

Smith College Team From Massachusetts Wins CoVent-19 Challenge to Design New Ventilator for Developing World

-"We came into this not knowing anything about ventilators," SmithVent team lead says -Top 3 teams from over 200 submissions win on-demand 3D printing services from Stratasys

Multi Property Optimization for Injection Moulding to Maintain Safety and Reduce Manufacturing Costs

The company's collaboration with Additive Flow for a particularly challenging project involving a metal and polymer over moulded component, ensured yet another successful outcome for Comeragh that will open up further opportunities in the future.

The New Normal for Global Manufacturing

The 3D printing industry has proven instrumental in the production of essential medical equipment ranging from face masks to ventilators.A key reason why additive manufacturing has been so effective during the pandemic: it doesn't rely on a global supply chain.

3D modelling technique for fast-track face shield production

Using stacked model data, the technique can dramatically increase 3D printing output, assisting in producing face shields for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19.

PRECISION MOLDING & THE INTERNET OF THINGS

While most analysis of the IoT is in respect of its positive influence on manufacturing processes, the growth in the IoT also opens up huge possibilities for micro molding as there is burgeoning demand for a variety of new and innovative micro devices.
