America Makes, DoD Select 3D Systems for Project to Reduce Part Corrosion
3D Systems announced it has been awarded a contract by America Makes and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in a project that aims to address corrosion difficulties common to naval sea system and other DoD platforms exposed to saltwater environments. According to a 2018 study by Logistics Management Institute, corrosion costs the U.S. Navy more than $8.5 billion annually, accounting for more than 20 percent of total maintenance costs. 

In a collaborative arrangement, 3D Systems will conduct research and development of the Corrosion Performance Design Guide for Direct Metal Printing of Nickel Alloys. The company received the award based on its ability to collect corrosion data and apply its expertise on the effects of various production practices associated with parts built via direct metal printing.

3D Printing Trends for 2020
Noting that additive manufacturing (AM)-related sales by large public companies expect to surpass $2.7 billion next year and $3 billion in 20201, Envision Capital Group LLC has posted what it believes to be four major industry trends in 2020:
  • The divergence of metal 3D printing toward either affordable machines or machines for mass production
  • A rise in development and availability of AM process control software
  • The first trials of binder jetting as a technology
  • A widespread acceptance of high-grade plastic and composite printing in manufacturing fields.

Free Webinar: Selecting Parts for Additive Manufacturing
As metal AM continues to expand as a viable production process, many companies are assessing the viability of producing parts via the selective laser melting. In 3D Metal Printing’s free webinar, Selecting Parts for Additive Manufacturing, the SLM Solutions North America application-engineering team discusses what types of parts, features and geometries are best suited to be optimized for AM, and tips on what may make the process unfeasible. Attendees gain an overview of how to assess their components in order to implement a metal AM strategy.

Register for AMUG, the Signature North American AM Users Event
Registration is open for the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2020 Education & Training Conference, March 22–26 in Chicago, IL. The conference, set for its 32nd year, targets owners and operators of industrial AM technologies used for professional purposes, and attracts users all along the experience spectrum.
