For this particular project, Dan Nobles and Slice Engineering decided carbon fiber nylon filament would be the best option. Engineered for its intense durability and stability, a carbon fiber nylon material would be capable of handling the high-heat experienced in an engine.
AM has enabled concurrent engineering―where all relevant departments can be engaged early in the product development process. Concurrent engineering replaces traditional "over-the-wall" product development, where design iterations could be delayed by weeks.
As schools look to bridge the skills gap in the workforce, 21st century skills like 3D design, design thinking, and CAD will be more critical now than ever before.
As the implementation of advanced manufacturing methods like AM increases, it is important to investigate and apply production methods that can produce intricate, yet reliable parts quickly and cost-effectively.
A proprietary alloy, ABD® GWA3 coupled with a unique heat treatment provided a 30% improvement in yield strength without sacrificing elongation.
Structured ESG and strategic, measurable sustainability programs are unlocking the deep value behind "doing well (profitability) by doing good (sustainability)."
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
After intensive market research, maxon decided on a printer from French manufacturer 3DCeram, which has been customized to meet the company's own requirements.
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.
