3D printing doubles the strength of stainless steel

Robert F. Service for ScienceMag: Now, researchers have come up with a way to 3D print tough and flexible stainless steel, an advance that could lead to faster and cheaper ways to make everything from rocket engines to parts for nuclear reactors and oil rigs.

Adidas is using robots to produce small-batch, local-market shoes

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: It's an early step in a bold experiment by a global retailer to use time-saving robots to design small-batch collections, a departure from the mass production methods employed by global shoe and apparel brands.

Makerbot Labs Is One Step Toward Open Source 3D Printing

Darren Orf for Popular Mechanics: Makerbot describes this new platform as a place, built for creators, who want to experiment with 3D printing but still have the bedrock of the platform to fall back on if need be.

DowDuPont's Andrew Liveris: How America Can Bring Back Manufacturing

From Knowledge@Wharton: Manufacturing accounts for about 13% of the U.S. economy. Should we even focus on trying to "bring it back," now that information and services - the "knowledge economy" - seems a more promising path?

Capgemini: Smart factories could add $1.5trn to global economy

Jonathan Dyble for Manufacturing Global: In its latest report, multinational consultancy firm Capgemini predicts that smart factories are set to become revolutionary within the manufacturing industry.

GE Healthcare opens its European 3D printing and design centre

Science Business: The centre combines advanced manufacturing technology, such as metal and polymer printers and collaborative robots, with traditional machining equipment.

Special Tradeshow Coverage for FABTECH 2017

FABTECH 2017 will be held from November 6th - 9th in Chicago, Illinois. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.

Apple Wins a Patent for a Future 3D Printing System that works with Augmented Reality and AR Glasses

Patently Apple: Apple notes that there's a need for further applications of a 3D printer, such as extending an existing real object through printing additional objects onto a surface of the existing object by using a 3D printer.

New Tube Cutting Technology Meets Next Generation Production Needs

While legacy stent and tube cutting systems have performed well during recent decades, new cutting technologies coming onto the market offer faster and better cuts, with higher production rates and new and unique cutting capabilities.

T3D Smartphone 3D Printer Successfully Funded on Kickstarter

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: Similar to digital light processing (DLP), layered slices are projected from the phone onto a vat of resin. The print bed is gradually lifted out of the vat with each flash of light until a complete object is revealed.

Carbon Introduces Production-Scale 3D Printing Materials Program for Large Manufacturers

This production volume materials approach will allow us to ensure that our partners like adidas, which will be printing thousands or millions of parts, can do so economically compared to other manufacturing methods such as injection molding.

Additive Manufacturing Technology Enables Radical New Designs

Additive manufacturing represents a seachange for the manufacturing sector. In many cases, 3D printing has resulted in an immediate, cost-effective solution to an issue. More importantly, it has resulted in a complete re-engineering of parts, so that they are now better suited for the dedicated function they are intended to serve.

3D Scanning in Manufacturing

Eventually, 3D scanners and 3D printers are likely to become one solution, similar to how 2D scanners have now been integrated into 2D printers.

How Machine Learning Will Unlock The Future Of 3D Printing

Cliff Kuang for Fast Co.Design: The bridge is really just a proof-of-concept for printed steel applications that range from shipbuilding to offshore oil rigs. Getting there will require not just better software, but robots that can teach themselves how to get better at 3D printing.

Will Voxeljet's High Speed Sintering Reinvent 3D Printing?

Zacks Equity Research: The HSS technology involves an infrared absorbing ink, that is selectively jetted onto layers of plastic powder, which are then exposed to infrared light. The powder melts under the light and forms functional plastic parts with qualities similar to those produced via Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, or injection molding.
