This May, more than 10,000 additive manufacturing (AM) professionals will return to Detroit for RAPID + TCT, North America's largest and most influential AM event.
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.
There is a demand signal to produce a machine capable of Metal printing on the front lines. Phillips has developed a Hybrid technology that adds a Wire fed Direct Energy Deposition head to a Haas machine.
Today a growing number of robust plastic and metal 3D printing technologies exist with the accuracy and repeatability required for use in end-use part and component production, and the palette of materials is extensive.
One of A3D's engineers met with the individual to best understand their specific situation and designed a handle that could attach to standard milk and juice cartons. A3D then used Simplify3D to print the handle.
Multi Property Optimization for Injection Moulding to Maintain Safety and Reduce Manufacturing Costs
The company's collaboration with Additive Flow for a particularly challenging project involving a metal and polymer over moulded component, ensured yet another successful outcome for Comeragh that will open up further opportunities in the future.
This article examines the ways in which companies looking to achieve significant product miniaturization need to approach their product development process, and how they need to adapt their thinking when embracing micro molding.

GE Awarded $9 Million from Office of Naval Research to develop framework enabling the rapid qualification and certification of 3D Printed Parts
3D printing could replace legacy manufacturing processes no longer in use to produce decades-old replacement parts
Factory Kit leverages Tulip's award-winning Manufacturing App Platform, which brings the power of Industrial IoT and advanced analytics to the front-line engineer and the associate on the shop floor.
RAPID + TCT 2018 took place in Fort Wort, TX April 24th - 26th. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
"InventoryBot has been a year in the making and has tools that provide users with everything from 'direct print' to the management of complex multi-part product construction. It is THE solution for small manufacturers looking to outsource parts creation,"
Brian Heater for TechCrunch: Using an augmented reality headset and two controllers, the designer builds a 3D model using a CAD (computer-aided design) program. A robotic arm then goes to work constructing a skeletal model using a simple plastic depositing 3D printer
Andrew Krok for CNet: When it comes to plastic, Porsche uses selective laser sintering, which is not the same as the fused deposition modeling that you see in most desktop-based 3D printers.
Adi Gaskell for Forbes: Such a network ensures you not only have the technological skills required but also the cultural and softer factors that are so important.
