Quick Guide to Metal Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Components

Are you looking for new ways to produce metal parts? Do you repair or replace metal parts due to corrosion or wear? Are you responsible for maintaining high-value metal parts? Is it time you added metal additive manufacturing to your company's capabilities?

U.S. Army Research Lab Selects 3D Systems to Develop World's Largest, Fastest Metal Powder 3D Printer

United States government invests $15 million towards the development of the next generation of metal 3D printing technology - advancing U.S. competitiveness and national security.

The Technology of 3D Metal Printing

The powder must be perfectly shaped in order to hold an even surface. A super-thin layer of steel powder is spread out with a roller. Then, a printer head places tiny drops of glue on the areas of the layer that are part of the design.

Who's Afraid of the Big Tall Build?

Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.

A Q&A Guide to Etching Metals

Chemical etching is a metal machining technology that has numerous advantages over traditional sheet metalworking processes, key among which is its applicability to a range of metals and alloys

KDT Leads $160 Million Investment in Desktop Metal to Drive the Adoption of the Company's Metal 3D Printers for Mass Production and the World's First Office-Friendly Metal 3D Printing System

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.

Laser ultrasound: the future of metal 3D printing?

Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Duttons work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.

100x faster, 10x cheaper: 3D metal printing is about to go mainstream

Loz Blain for New Atlas: Desktop Metals Studio System includes a fully-automated, office-friendly sintering furnace with fast cycle times and a peak temperature of 1400°C, allowing for the sintering of a wide variety of materials

Desktop Metal gets $115 million investment in 3D printing technology

Andy Rosen for The Boston Globe: The company said the amount represents the largest private haul for any 3D printing company focused on metal. Desktop Metal has now raised $212 million since its launch in 2015.

New Technology Uses CNC to Drop Metal 3D Printing Costs

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.

GE Is Building The World's Largest 'Additive' Machine For 3D Printing Metals

The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machines "build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customers project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or better todays additive machines."
