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.
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.
When retailers are hesitant to try selling new items, a consumer-centric, data-driven strategy can help you prove that your products have legs.
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.
Structured ESG and strategic, measurable sustainability programs are unlocking the deep value behind "doing well (profitability) by doing good (sustainability)."
3D printing makes it possible to introduce different materials into production that offer a lower embodied energy. In many applications, polymer or composite materials can offer the same strength and durability as metals.
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
ICON and Lennar to Build Largest Neighborhood of 3D-printed Homes Codesigned by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group
ICON's 3D printing technology produces resilient, energy-efficient homes faster than conventional construction methods with less waste and more design freedom - keeping construction projects on schedule and on budget.
Traditionally, when we think about the cost of a product, we're thinking mainly in financial terms. But this isn't the only form of cost. Increasingly, a new measure that's taking on more importance for buyers - and regulators - is the carbon footprint cost.
When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."
The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide
The materials approved for use in biomedical implants are limited, but as new alloys and polymers emerge, the chances are high that many of them will prove to be biocompatible as well. These will help to shape the future of biomedical manufacturing as a whole.
