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).
The precast concrete industry is looking at using 3D printing, Additive Manufacturing magazine said.Gate Precast used 3D printed forms during construction of a 42-story building in New York, the magazine said. The publication said Gate Precast determined 3D printed tool worked “for a job requiring high repeatability over many concrete pours.”Oak Ridge National Read More

Manufacturing has been a way of life since the first industrial revolution. By the 1980s, advanced factories created products in ways never before imaginable. That same decade, a new form of manufacturing with the promise to revolutionize the way we make things was born—additive manufacturing (AM).Unlike traditional manufacturing processes that stamp, extrude, inject, Read More
When the Italian company JDeal-Form (Oleggio, Italy) started using additive manufacturing to apply a micronized polymer coating to the underwire tips and bra straps it sold to brassiere makers, CTO Davide Ardizzoia grew frustrated with his AM vendor’s constant lateness. Ardizzoia, a textile engineer, searched for but couldn’t find an affordable industrial-grade 3D printer for Read More
