Smart manufacturers have already been aware that mass customization can be the key to a profitable business, as it helps boost customer satisfaction and win brand loyalty.
Besides being fast and capable of manufacturing complex shapes, binder jetting systems are also incredibly accurate.
Prestigious 140+ Year Old University Delivers Advanced Engineering and Technical Training With Method X
Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences enriches Additive Design and Manufacturing Courses with MakerBot 3D printers. Students use METHOD X for a range of prototyping applications in research and development, industry thesis projects, and more.
One of the main trends previously predicted for 2021 is the accelerated adoption of turnkey solutions in additive manufacturing (AM). Moshe Molcho, CEO at LEO Lane, looks at how certain options can help OEMs adopt AM and examines the current offering of AM turnkey solutions.
Until now, manufacturers have been dipping their toes and getting familiar with the technology, using it to create prototypes rather than final products. But that is changing. It's only a matter of time before AM makes the leap from prototyping to manufacturing.
In a world waiting to take its next move after the COVID-19 pandemic, we'd like to offer you and your team design resources for injection molded parts to help keep skills sharp during this uncertain time.
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 companies that are exploring the possibilities that exist for miniaturization of plastic parts and components, there are some seemingly daunting obstacles that exist, not least the vagaries of the micro molding process itself.
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"?
Can 3D printing be used in the manufacture of safety critical vehicle parts?
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.
AREVO to Manufacture World's First 3D-Printed Carbon Fiber Unibody Bike Frames for New Line of eBikes from Franco Bicycles
"AREVO DNA™" Digital Composites Manufacturing Technology Represents a Breakthrough for the Global Bicycle Industry and Other Sectors
Within the next few years, robotics to enable agile production will be developed in Tampere, Finland in two projects under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme with a combined budget of EUR 32 million. The projects are coordinated by the University of Tampere and VTT, respectivel
Graphical representation of an idea often falls short of the impact of a 3 dimensional expression of the concept. Cars utilizing 3D printed components have graced auto shows for years.
Advanced manufacturing technologies were an integral part of the development of the reservoir. As with all of our projects, a design review is first conducted...

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
