A new 3-D printing method has been developed to create objects that can permanently transform into a range of different shapes in response to heat.
When traditional chemical adhesives fail to sufficiently bond dissimilar types of materials, engineers often turn to plasma treatments to solve complex adhesion problems.
Quality of machining and quality control differentiates "standard" toolholders from precision.
Jack Schofield and Waverly Colville for Reuters: Layer by layer, 0.2 millimeters at a time, a specialized printing machine at Belgian chocolate shop Miam Factory applies melted chocolate to shape a three-dimensional object.
Daniel Moore, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Our mission, at a very high level, is establishing leadership in this area," said Gary Fedder, interim CEO of the ARM Institute. "We want to lower the barrier for the companies to adopt this technology" while also "empowering the American worker" to find open positions.
Before you connect your machinery to the internet, please make sure you do a full IT risk assessment, considering not only the benefits, but the potential troubles you may encounter, and then think if having "constantly connected" machinery is REALLY necessary.
Materialise additive manufacturing technology now fully integrated with NX Seamlessly closes the loop between product design and 3D printers Strengthens Siemens comprehensive additive manufacturing solution
A typical application of insert molding is to include one or more threaded metal inserts in a plastic part when that part is intended to mate to another part in an assembly.
James Vincent for The Verge: The company says 100,000 pairs of Futurecraft sneakers will be made by the end of 2018
Binghamton University for R&D Magazine: A team of researchers from Binghamton University, State University of New York and MIT have identified some bottlenecks in 3D printers, that, if improved, could speed up the entire process.
Automate 2017 will be held from April 3rd - 6th at Chicago's McCormick Place. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
For metalworking operations using extreme heats, engineered plastic cooling towers provide effective cooling without corroding, outlasting traditional alternatives.
Eric Mack for New Atlas: A team of engineers has developed a new way of 3D-printing metals that could improve on existing, laser-on-powder based methods. It relies on using semi-solid metals that are solid at rest, but can flow when force is applied, making it possible to move through the nozzle of a printer. Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) hope that the process could lead to higher-quality and lighter metal parts.
Without good contracts, a manufacturer may be fully exposed to liability - without protection and legal recourse against the responsible party - and at the mercy of the laws of other jurisdictions.
Paul Ebeling for Live Trading News: "These Microfactories are a glimpse of what the future represents, combining innovation and educational ecosystems with fast, efficient and sustainable manufacturing capabilities. The possibilities are truly limitless," said HE Mohamed Abdullah Al Gergawi, UAE minister of cabinet affairs and MD of Dubai Future Foundation.
