ERIKS offers technical components and related services to all sections of industry. And by adding 3D printing technology to its workflow, ERIKS is able to provide its customers with a service that holds the potential to shake up industries around the globe.
There is no doubt that 3D Printing is shaping our societies. Its future is evolving very fast and, although its impact on different sectors is still to be defined, many industries are leveraging 3D Printing technologies for their goals.
As there are more and more success stories associated with the use of AM as a production technology, scrutiny on the process is becoming increasingly forensic in nature.
For a growing number of applications, 3D printing for batch production offers clear economic and added-value advantages- acting as a spur to innovation and enabling the production of end-use products impossible or uneconomical to produce with the use of alternative methods.
Some of the most advanced industry - as Automotive - are experiencing a renaissance not seen before, which is driving engineers to find new, innovative, cost-effective solutions using professional 3D Printing, mainly.
The rapid prototyping and 3D printing plastic parts for wind tunnel testing became a well-established model but Katsanis wondered "why not do this with metal"?
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.
-- Companies will develop first-to-market additive manufacturing solutions to change automotive design and production -- TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH names 3D Systems "Additive Manufacturing Machine Provider of Choice"
- 2019 Accelerator continues focus on additive manufacturing and expands to include sustainable packaging solutions. - Selected companies will relocate to Stanley Black & Decker's new Manufactory 4.0 Center in Hartford, CT for three months
At the show, Renishaw will also demonstrate its QuantAM build preparation software, developed specifically for use with Renishaw additive manufacturing systems. The dedicated software tool has an intuitive workflow and easy navigation to allow users to rapidly prepare models
RAPID + TCT 2019 takes place in Detroit, MI May 20th - 23rd. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Increase in trend towards adoption of prototype has led to the development and validation of design faster along with reduction in production time & cost in various industrial sectors which has stimulated additive manufacturing with metal powders market demand.
The parts include Ford Focus HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Cooling) Lever Arm Service Parts, Ford F-150 Raptor Auxiliary Plugs for a niche market, and Ford Mustang GT500 Electric Parking Brake Brackets.
The key to making AM productive enough for wider adoption across these high-volume industries, however, lies in process economics - choosing the most effective manufacturing process for each part.
The collaboration has already resulted in the 'reinvention of a lamp holder previously prone to part failure, and the automation of a previously labor intensive line using lightweight design.

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
