The useful life of a machine should not be dictated by the availability of a single part and this is now no longer the case with the application of 3D printing. The rise of the circular economy has led to a new way to fix things.
LM Industries' low speed, electric and autonomous vehicle, Olli, uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer thermoplastics in its 3D printing process. Additionally, Olli's chassis is nearly 90 percent 3D-printed
After months paring down the many qualified entries, three days of onsite voting allowed PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO attendees to be the ultimate judge of the most innovative new technologies at the show.
ICON, in one of the Largest Seed Rounds for Texas Start-Ups in 2018, Announces $9 Million in Funding
Silicon Valley Heavyweights, Renowned International Developer from the Middle East and America's Largest Homebuilder Among Investors of Construction Tech Company that Delivered First 3D-printed Home in the U.S. to Receive Building Permit
The benefits of additive manufacturing are hard to ignore. So, why hasn't it achieved wider adoption? There are a few important hurdles that AM needs to clear for the aerospace industry at large to get on board.
New product design app to offer live collaborative 3D CAD editing, not just viewing
Many companies believe and perpetuate the myth that AM is only a prototyping tool, innovators in a range of markets (e.g., aerospace, healthcare, consumer goods and more) are already using AM for production-grade manufacturing when design, performance and cost factors align
Additive manufacturing enables not just personalisation but also, importantly, cost reduction and gains in success. There are sure to emerge many more potential applications.
Researchers at NYU Tandon and NYU Abu Dhabi are the First to Convert Flat QR Codes into Complex Features Hidden within 3D-Printed Parts to Foil Counterfeiters and IP Pirates.
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is generally considered to be for prototyping but there is an increasing trend towards using it for production. So when does it make sense to switch to or consider using 3D printing for production of your products or parts within them?
The key to making AM productive enough for wider adoption across these high-volume industries, however, lies in process economics - choosing the most effective manufacturing process for each part.
Within a few seconds of viewing a color map in ATOS, we're able to quickly understand how our actual part measures up to its design.
How GE Appliances uses ATOS 3D scanners, TRITOP photogrammetry, and ScanBox automated technology to solve engineering challenges.
Time cut from several weeks to a few hours using Stratasys Production 3D Printer. GKN Aerospace is producing complex tools that were uneconomical or impossible to make without additive manufacturing
The collaboration has already resulted in the 'reinvention' of a lamp holder previously prone to part failure, and the automation of a previously labor intensive line using lightweight design.
