Cleveland – Wolf Robotics, a Lincoln Electric Company, is paving the road for advancements in Robotic Big Area Additive Manufacturing (R-BAAM). This effort will help move metal additive manufacturing out of the traditional, small-area, bed-built processes and dramatically expand build envelopes for robotically printing metal parts. Cultivated as a result of an industry need, Read More
3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing
This is a channel about 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM) for manufacturing professionals. AM is a fast-moving area of manufacturing technology and there are a wide variety of technologies use to 3D print or build objects, such as stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), digital light processing (DLP), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and more. At Advanced Manufacturing Media, we partner with RAPID - the leading conference and exposition for 3D printing -- and cover all AM methods, including emerging ones, such as Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM).
