Technological innovation in the U.S. military is revolutionizing defense, responding to natural disasters, and so much more, but it also creates unique challenges. 3D scanning combined with additive manufacturing (AM) can step in to print emergency replacement parts.
But there is one aspect of a micro molding project that is often overlooked, especially when customers are assessing the in-house capabilities of a micro molding partner, and that is validation and quality control.
Through an extensive benchmarking study, IDTechEx has asked the question: where are metal additive manufacturing technologies going, and where are the whitespaces for advancement in the metal AM landscape?
According to 65% of those polled, improvements in design tools, tech innovation and new design methodologies have simplified efforts over the past three-to-five years. Still, a multitude of factors continue to hinder design engineering progress and innovation.
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.
As applications for nanotechnology become increasingly commonplace, it is essential for businesses of all kinds to understand the potential-and the challenges-of working in this rapidly evolving landscape.
Iconic London department store to showcase future role of robotics at point of consumption. ABB robot 3D additive printing will allow personalized items be ordered on site by customers and produced in-situ, ready for purchase.
3D additive electronics enables complete circuits to be integrated within an object, offering multiple benefits that include simplified manufacturing and novel form factors.
The past year has shown those in manufacturing and the supply chain that 3D printing - or additive manufacturing (AM) - is becoming a serious and mature manufacturing technology, not only for prototypes but also for small and medium sized series.
When retailers are hesitant to try selling new items, a consumer-centric, data-driven strategy can help you prove that your products have legs.
When manufacturing micro parts and components, it takes a coordinated team of experts in design, materials, tooling, molding, validation, and automated assembly to successfully manufacture customer parts at high volume.
EDM - could be classified as one of the most useful in a modern shop. Also called a spark machining tool, the device uses sparks, or electricity, to cut through materials. It uses thermal energy to make the cuts by removing material.
Digital Thermal Processing tools bring a sustainable approach and a new means of delivering applied energy for manufacturing. Allowing designers to build what they imagine, resolving the limitations of materials and processing temps on product design and manufacturing.
For this particular project, Dan Nobles and Slice Engineering decided carbon fiber nylon filament would be the best option. Engineered for its intense durability and stability, a carbon fiber nylon material would be capable of handling the high-heat experienced in an engine.
AM has enabled concurrent engineering―where all relevant departments can be engaged early in the product development process. Concurrent engineering replaces traditional "over-the-wall" product development, where design iterations could be delayed by weeks.
