A Rare American Builder of Large Machine Tools With 'Strong Bones' Adds a Superior Control to Bring New Benefits to Many

With the need for high quality contour surface milling on the rise in manufacturing, one of the rare large machine tool builders based in the U.S. has now met that challenge and is making an impact in those industries that need it most.

When to Retrofit a Machine and How to Choose the Right Control

With just about any CNC control, you can be certain you'll be able to take code from a CAD CAM system and start machining with the push of just a few buttons. But what makes one control better than another?

Case Study: A Task Force Uses Rapid Prototyping to Evaluate an Emergency Medical Device

A team of engineers and medical experts joined forces during the first wave of COVID-19 to rapidly prototype a medical device. Xometry manufactured 9 prototypes in under 3 weeks, providing advice and rapid production for critical decision making.

Overcoming the crisis: COVID-19, the automotive industry and the potential of additive manufacturing

In this feature, Eric Pallars, Chief Technology Officer at BCN3D, considers the impact of this tumultuous year on the automotive industry and how additive manufacturing can help.

Moving from Scare Easy to Secured Share Easy in Additive Manufacturing

Unleashing the full benefits of additive manufacturing requires knowledge sharing, but as Lee-Bath Nelson, Co-founder and VP Business at LEO Lane asks, can this be achieved securely without giving away the farm?

Ways Automation Is Changing Metal Fabrication

Growing demand and a widening industry skills gap have metal fabricators looking for ways to improve efficiency and product quality, even when additional labor may be hard to find.

The Critical Role of Validation in Micro Molding

Measurement should be a central consideration in every quote issued by a micro molder. If a micro molder can make the steel micro tool, and subsequently mold the part, sure as night follows day it will need to be measured.

Automating Post-Production to Scale-Up Additive Manufacturing

Unshackled by the limitations associated with traditional production processes, AM has made the leap from prototype to end part production and continues to open up exciting opportunities around localised production, digital inventories and on-demand manufacturing.

3D Printing and Printed Materials in 2020: A Challenging Year But Fascinating Times Ahead, Reports IDTechEx

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted the 3D printing sector and its end users (such as printing bureaus), new directions of travel have nonetheless emerged. Some opportunities have even been directly prompted by the pandemic.

Which CNC Machining Cooling Method Should You Pick?

To limit the chances of mill overheating in CNC processes, different manufacturing techniques have been developed to control the heat produced all while limiting costs. This article will present the most important developments in overheating mitigation for CNC milling.

3D Printing Trends 2021: A Year of Radical Renewal

The legacy of 3D printing starts in 2021 with three key trends: going back to the drawing board to rethink manufacturing; enabling the personalization of not only products, but also 3D printers themselves; and creating new solutions, fast.

3D Printing Technology Comparison: SLA vs SLS

In this article, we'll discuss the main similarities and differences between two of the most established processes in 3D printing - stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS).

THE ROLE OF 3D PRINTING IN BIODIGITAL ARCHITECTURE

The discipline starts with the premise that nature has the answers, and that as our scientific understanding advances, so too does our ability to understand more and more that nature has to reveal.
