Additive & 3D Printing - Articles, Stories & Interviews
When using micro AM, by week 7 a design can have been refined numerous times as the process requires no traditional tooling, just DRST. This means that time and focus in this early stage of product development can be spent on design optimization.
Ursa Major's Advanced Manufacturing Lab in Youngstown, Ohio Cuts Time to Produce Rocket Engine Components from 6 Months to 1 Month
But there is one aspect of a micro molding project that is often overlooked, especially when customers are assessing the in-house capabilities of a micro molding partner, and that is validation and quality control.
As applications for nanotechnology become increasingly commonplace, it is essential for businesses of all kinds to understand the potential—and the challenges—of working in this rapidly evolving landscape.
The past year has shown those in manufacturing and the supply chain that 3D printing – or additive manufacturing (AM) – is becoming a serious and mature manufacturing technology, not only for prototypes but also for small and medium sized series.
When manufacturing micro parts and components, it takes a coordinated team of experts in design, materials, tooling, molding, validation, and automated assembly to successfully manufacture customer parts at high volume.
Digital Thermal Processing tools bring a sustainable approach and a new means of delivering applied energy for manufacturing. Allowing designers to build what they imagine, resolving the limitations of materials and processing temps on product design and manufacturing.
