SME created the Additive Manufacturing Competition to attract and introduce the younger generation to emerging technologies that manufacturers have adopted over the past few years.
The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.
- 2019 Accelerator continues focus on additive manufacturing and expands to include sustainable packaging solutions. - Selected companies will relocate to Stanley Black & Decker's new Manufactory 4.0 Center in Hartford, CT for three months
U.S. Army Research Lab Selects 3D Systems to Develop World's Largest, Fastest Metal Powder 3D Printer
United States government invests $15 million towards the development of the next generation of metal 3D printing technology - advancing U.S. competitiveness and national security.
With all the buzz about these new design tools, there is still quite a bit of ground left to be covered in ensuring these next-generation designs are actually manufacturable. That is where we can really shine.
The materials have a non-uniform, crystalline structure, making components built with them much stronger than those built using a standard uniform lattice structure. So much stronger, in fact, that they can withstand seven times the amount of energy ...
Carbon Raises Over $260M in Growth Funding Round, Paving the Way for Global Expansion of its Digital Manufacturing Platform
New Funding to Fuel Growth of its Leading Digital Manufacturing Platform Worldwide, Expand on Software Capabilities, and Accelerate Research and Development
In this article, Joseph Crabtree, CEO at Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd considers the importance of post-processing in the entire production process chain and highlights an emerging solution.
Professional 3D Printing and Windform® composite materials used in the manufacturing of two innovative aero-elastic wind tunnel demonstrators
Professional 3D printing has revolutionized the entire process of construction and verification of the parts allowing the following: faster production speed and possibility of optimizing the internal shape of these aerodynamic sections.
The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.
The powder must be perfectly shaped in order to hold an even surface. A super-thin layer of steel powder is spread out with a roller. Then, a printer head places tiny drops of glue on the areas of the layer that are part of the design.
3D printing has a bright future in the world of "Industry 4.0" and the advanced manufacturing sector of cyber-physical systems. Increasingly diverse raw materials, sophisticated modeling technologies, precise outputs, and more expands every year.
Though the prospect of manufacturing hearts and other organs via a 3D bioprinter is likely a decade away, the July launch is a significant milestone in that quest.
Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.
• Professionals are most commonly using 3D printing technology for prototyping prospective products/parts/components (55%) • Thereafter, 43% are applying the applications of 3D printing within their production processes
