The emergence and mature applications of metal 3D printing technology, as well as intelligent software such as CFD and CAE, are driving and leading new changes in valve design and manufacturing.
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?
The unique characteristics of PCE overcome many of the issues associated with more traditional metal cutting technologies, and as such - in some instances - when looking for a cost-effective solution for the manufacture of precise metal parts, it is the only viable choice.
The American Welding Society estimates a 400,000-worker shortage by 2024. The urgent need for more welders and higher skill levels among welding personnel is widely known and accepted in the U.S. manufacturing industry.
Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is central to its production of metal additive manufacturing (AM) parts. In this process, lasers melt and weld layers of metallic powder resulting in parts that are durable and can be polished.
Improving the Performance of Supercritical CO2 in Next-generation Energy Applications with 3D Metal Printing
Mohawk Innovative Technology uses VELO3D's metal AM system to develop a high temperature heat transfer fluid circulator for the Department of Energy
Metal additive manufacturing currently services high-value industries, most of the printers sold are powder bed fusion and can cost over $1m with expensive powder feedstocks.
"It's so rare that we get to show some of the capabilities we have, especially one that has gone through finish machining, says Scott Woida, President ADDere, "I think it gives a new perspective to what is possible with the technology."
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 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.
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.
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
Combined Funding Rounds, Now at $438 Million, Makes Desktop Metal the Highest Funded Private 3D Printing Endeavor in History
Desktop Metal, the company committed to bringing metal 3D printing to engineers and manufacturers will be exhibiting its breakthrough technologies for both prototyping and mass production of metal parts for the first time at IMTS, Booth #432300
