It’s not always easy to determine whether to continue with traditional metal part production processes or try an additive process. ExOne, an additive vendor of binder additive manufacturing technologies, now makes it easier to determine which option … [Read more...] about How much will it cost you to use metal binder jetting 3D printing?
Engineers at the Industrial Technology Research Institute built a simulation app that can be used to predict the performance of laser powder bed fusion, an additive manufacturing process. The app saves time and money during the additive manufacturing … [Read more...] about How to make predictions in additive manufacturing with simulation apps
When it comes to making a designed part, you have several choices: traditional machining, which covers a range of options; injection molding; and now additive manufacturing. Even more recently though, is the trend of combining metal fabrication and … [Read more...] about How combining subtractive and additive manufacturing makes better parts
Authentise, a leader in data-driven workflow tools for additive manufacturing, and nebumind, a provider of visualization and analytics tools for manufacturing data, announce the integration of nebumind’s tools into the Authentise Manufacturing … [Read more...] about Combining data capture and visualization for better part data
ESPRIT, a CAM software provider for CNC programming, optimization, and simulation, announces a partnership with Alma, a CAD/CAM provider for robotics, to create a complete programming solution for robot additive DED (direct energy deposition). The … [Read more...] about Easier programming for robot additive Direct Energy Deposition
By Mike Dunlap If you are familiar with the advantages of and possibilities that are opened up by CNC machining, you may have so far steered clear of the emerging trend for additive manufacturing. There is doubtlessly room for both technologies to … [Read more...] about How does 3D printing differ from CNC machining?
It’s 2020 and we don’t have flying cars. But maybe, we’ll have cars that can walk soon. Through the use of the generative design capabilities in Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software and 3D printing, Hyundai Motor is developing a walking car it calls the … [Read more...] about Generative design and 3D printing help make a walking car
Link3D announces the availability of its first ever mobile app: Post-Production Management App. This application will change the way companies and organizations manage their post-production processes and provide a streamlined flow by allowing quick … [Read more...] about Control 3D printing post production processing from mobile app
The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK, is focused in accelerating the UK’s industrial growth, developing and proving innovative manufacturing processes and technologies … [Read more...] about What the additive process EBM can do for automotive development
Working with VELO3D and nTopology, Sierra Turbines re-imagines the design of a microturbine by decreasing part count from 61 to 1 and designing a 360-degree fuel injector. By David Laudermilch From the beginning, our design objectives at … [Read more...] about The Aurelius Mk1 turbine core and our path to additive manufacturing
