Developing High Strength Cast ABD® GWA3 Alloy for Automotive Applications - A Case Study

A proprietary alloy, ABD® GWA3 coupled with a unique heat treatment provided a 30% improvement in yield strength without sacrificing elongation.

Powering Additive Manufacturing with an Environmental and Social Impact Commitment

Structured ESG and strategic, measurable sustainability programs are unlocking the deep value behind "doing well (profitability) by doing good (sustainability)."

2021 Top Article - Additive in Space - Cost Reduction in Aerospace Through Additive Manufacturing

The elements needed for space travel do not have to meet the high launch requirements, but can be tailored precisely to the mission requirements. The process is being researched on parabolic flights in zero gravity - supported by a uEye CP industrial camera from IDS.

Rethinking material usage - How 3D printing enables dematerialization

3D printing makes it possible to introduce different materials into production that offer a lower embodied energy. In many applications, polymer or composite materials can offer the same strength and durability as metals.

3D Printing - an Alternative to Injection Moulding?

3D printing technologies have been refined to such an extent that they are truly viable production technologies. Now the conversation among manufacturers is around the most judicious use of 3D printing for production.

3D Printing Platform Could Shape the Future of Spare Part Production

The use of 3D printing technology to enable the fast availability of spare parts - when needed, where needed, in exactly the right quantity needed, is now, thanks to German company Replique, becoming a reality.

Purdue researchers test 3D concrete printing system as part of NSF-funded project

Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.

Metal Fabrication Shop Utilizes Efficient Production Method

When a client needs a prototype created quickly, longer-running fabrication jobs most likely will have to be be put on hold to make room for a rapid prototype manufacturing job.

Ceramic at Its Best

After intensive market research, maxon decided on a printer from French manufacturer 3DCeram, which has been customized to meet the company's own requirements.

Sharpening Alignment for More Accurate and Faster Machining

Matrox Imaging's robust vision software and smart camera endows CNC machine to ensure precision cuts, enhance yield rates

ICON and Lennar to Build Largest Neighborhood of 3D-printed Homes Codesigned by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

ICON's 3D printing technology produces resilient, energy-efficient homes faster than conventional construction methods with less waste and more design freedom - keeping construction projects on schedule and on budget.

Using Sustainable Product Configuration to Enable Customer Choice

Traditionally, when we think about the cost of a product, we're thinking mainly in financial terms. But this isn't the only form of cost. Increasingly, a new measure that's taking on more importance for buyers - and regulators - is the carbon footprint cost.

NREL Enables Affordable Housing by Expanding Beyond Energy Efficiency

When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."

Micro Molding - Material Selection and Design Concerns

You need to understand the basic design approach and really bottom out what you can and cannot do, as when micro molding, even the smallest design change can be catastrophic and completely derail a project.

How to Use Supports

Most entry-level 3D printers work by extruding material, and while this has lots of cost and safety advantages, it does come with some limitations. Creating a part with extreme overhangs, arches, or angles can be a challenge. Supports make printing these geometries possible.
