The use of AM for production of spare parts does not sound as sexy as AM for racing cars, but the practical implications are enormous. That's especially true when it comes to spare parts for cars that have been on the road for more than a few years.
One of the main trends previously predicted for 2021 is the accelerated adoption of turnkey solutions in additive manufacturing (AM). Moshe Molcho, CEO at LEO Lane, looks at how certain options can help OEMs adopt AM and examines the current offering of AM turnkey solutions.
Organisations are having to find new mechanisms that enable their teams to quickly create interactive documentation containing representations of their native 3D CAD data, that can easily be shared with non-CAD users, their customers and wider supply chains.
Here's some guidance on best practices for material handling and advice on the proper equipment to implement a material handling workflow at your facility.
Palari Group and Mighty Buildings Announce World's First Community of 3D Printed Zero Net Energy Homes in Rancho Mirage, California
Palari plans to develop the 5-acre parcel into a planned community of 15 eco-friendly homes, built utilizing the 3D-printed panelized Mighty Kit system by Mighty Buildings.
Tackling Obsolescence With Additive Manufacturing - 3D Printed Spare Parts Is Revolutionizing Manufacturing
When obsolete components break, it can be hard to find like-for-like replacements. Managing obsolescence is therefore critical since the breakage or malfunction of obsolete components exposes the business to risk of costly downtime.
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.
From a molding perspective, only the most experienced expert micro molding companies can successfully achieve the exacting tolerances that micro-optic components demand. Micro-optics require a unique processing knowledge - different from mechanical parts.
Fraunhofer IGD Develops Automated Robotic Arm to Scan Cultural Objects in 3D, Now Cooperating With Phase One
The Fraunhofer IGD has developed a product to make it easier for museums to digitize their collections and is now cooperating with Danish camera manufacturer Phase One. The mobile scanner CultArm3D delivers precise 3D models of exhibits of various sizes at the push of a button.
Improving the Performance of Supercritical CO2 in Next-generation Energy Applications with 3D Metal Printing
Mohawk Innovative Technology uses VELO3D's metal AM system to develop a high temperature heat transfer fluid circulator for the Department of Energy
3D printing has transformed the world of prototyping, assembly and manufacturing in unprecedented ways. Besides, injection moulding and CNC machining are the basis for most designs that reach the production stage.
ExOne has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to develop a fully operational, self-contained 3D printing "factory" housed in a shipping container. Now under development.
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.
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?
