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).
• E-RigidForm is a strong, durable material that is suitable for end use products and comes in amber and charcoal • The new material is being displayed in a 328-foot chain that was 3D printed in one piece on an EnvisionTEC Xede 3SP • The EnvisionTEC Mega-Chain will be on display April 24-26 in Fort Worth, Texas, at RAPID + TCT, the premier 3D printing event in North Read More
The new era of growth with laser-driven additive manufacturing (AM), deposition welding, and optimized machine tool production with laser manufacturing processes will be the focus of LASYS 2018 which will be held in Stuttgart from June 5 to7. "The market for laser systems for additive manufacturing has therefore increased annually by more than 25% in the last five years," said Read More
If you’re not fully convinced of the additive wave that’s sweeping manufacturing, a brief conversation with Penn State University Professor Timothy W. Simpson will quickly change your mind. The past few years has seen the additive manufacturing (AM) industry making big inroads into areas previously considered the stronghold of high-precision, production-only metalcutting and Read More
Additive Manufacturing Slashes Time & Cost to Produce Vital Manufacturing Aids A steady pace of innovations underscore Jabil’s mission to be the most technologically advanced manufacturing solutions provider in the world. To that end, the company continually weaves a digital thread across its 100 facilities in 29 countries to connect people, processes and plants with Read More
The first time I saw the 3D printing technology working at McDonnell-Douglas Aircraft was in the early 1990s, and it forever changed the way I thought about manufacturing. The 3D Systems stereolithography system was mesmerizing to watch, particularly as the laser danced across a vat of liquid resin to make complex-shaped parts. At the time, it was the new, cool 3D printing Read More
