Challenged with extraordinary delivery and quality issues, a plastics producer turned to Cornerstone Consulting Organization (CCO) to lead an aggressive operation recovery effort.
The impending uses of 3D printing are still being exposed. This article highlights some of the applications presently under way that are probable to be in general use first.
Some of the most advanced industry - as Automotive - are experiencing a renaissance not seen before, which is driving engineers to find new, innovative, cost-effective solutions using professional 3D Printing, mainly.
For companies that are exploring the possibilities that exist for miniaturization of plastic parts and components, there are some seemingly daunting obstacles that exist, not least the vagaries of the micro molding process itself.
This year at MODEX we'll be highlighting CAD Is The Model technology, which enables system designers to mark up their solutions in SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor and create articulated and dynamic systems for emulation testing. Booth #7869
Overall, IDTechEx calculated that this industry received over $100M in investment in 2019. There are very good reasons for both the composite and 3D printing industry to be excited.
The rapid prototyping and 3D printing plastic parts for wind tunnel testing became a well-established model but Katsanis wondered "why not do this with metal"?
This article examines the ways in which companies looking to achieve significant product miniaturization need to approach their product development process, and how they need to adapt their thinking when embracing micro molding.
For the last four years of SAE competition, UVic Formula Motorsport team has been using 3D printed oil pans that were purposely engineered to be manufactured by CRP USA's laser sintering 3d printing process and Windform® TOP-LINE composite materials.
Before the final printing of the building walls, we conducted several tests on the printing of different constructions to be sure in the performance of all units and compliance with the requirements of maximum height and radius of printing.
There is a large number of different cheap laser engravers out there that are a great way to get into laser engraving on a budget.
As hybrids boast both a conventional engine and electric battery power, drivers get the best of both worlds. However, many aren't aware that the hybrid concept also extends to composite materials.
To upgrade the inspection capabilities of its measurement laboratory, the quality department at the Chassis & Safety division of automotive equipment manufacturer Continental invested in two LK Metrology ALTERA multi=-sensor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs).
The study reveals that virtually all (99%) manufacturing executives surveyed believe an open ecosystem is important to advance 3D printing at scale. While 85% of manufacturers reported that industrial-scale AM has the potential to increase revenue for their business
SQ4D has completed construction of the world's largest permitted 3D printed home. The home is 1900 square feet and took only forty eight hours of print time, over an eight day period. The home was entirely printed and built onsite using less than $6000 in materials.

Windform FR2 is new glass-fiber reinforced + flame retardant composite material for 3D printing by CRP Technology. It is electrically insulating, FAR 25.853 compliant, white colored, with significant mechanical properties. It is halogen free and combines outstanding wear resistance and good temperature resistance. Owing to its flame-retardant quality and insulating properties, Windform FR2 is suitable for harshest applications.
