…thanks to a Renishaw AM400 metal additive manufacturing (AM) system
supplied to the Grand Rapids, MI, provider of plastic injection and die
cast die tooling and molding. Having built a reputation on delivering
quick change and turnaround for plastic injection and die cast molds,
the company decided on the AM400 due to its build envelope and the
ability to change materials quickly.
The Advanced Manufacturing & Repair for Gas Turbines event is
dedicated to advanced manufacturing for gas turbines and promises to
reveal successful best practices and new technologies to improve
efficiencies and reduce maintenance costs. Join us to learn, share and
build relationships when the full supply chain of companies involved
with advanced manufacturing for gas turbines come together in March.
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.
ExOne has debuted the X1 160Pro,
the 10th, and largest, metal 3D printer from ExOne. Employing binder
jetting technology, the printer offers a build area of 800 by 500 by 400
mm, totaling 160 liters of build volume. Its open material system
prints more than six metals, plus ceramics.
Engage with the brightest minds in aerospace and defense manufacturing at AeroDef 2020, March 16-19 in Fort Worth, TX. Whether you’re exploring smart technologies on the show floor or attending the industry’s premier conference, you’ll be immersed in the best that aerospace and defense manufacturing has to offer.
To reduce cost per part, a 3D Systems DMP Flex 350 stack-prints hip cups using the company’s LaserForm Ti Gr23 (A), a titanium alloy. Printing in layer thicknesses of 60 microns for the scaffold and 90 for solids, the machine produces 225 parts per build when using the full plate, for an average build time per part of 45 min.
Recently Fabrisonic partnered with Luna Innovations on a project for NASA to gather data in cryogenic fuel pipes for rocket test stands at NASA Stennis Space Center. NASA’s goal was to get data on pressure and temperature gradients inside of their fuel piping closer to the test article to better understand how a particular engine is behaving. Why the partnership? The solid-state nature of Fabrisonic’s ultrasonic AM bond allows for encapsulation of wires, fibers and sensors into a metallic substrate.
America Corp. CR-15iA for Arc collaborative robot (cobot), equipped
with a Lincoln Electric Power Wave R450 robotic power source, built a
jet turbine component by employing arc welding in an AM process.
Formnext 2019, HP Inc. announced expansion of the HP Digital
Manufacturing Network with new partners Prototal in Europe and Solize in
Japan. The network includes a worldwide community of digital
manufacturing service providers with capability for high-quality,
high-volume HP Metal Jet and Multi Jet Fusion part production, according
to company officials.
out the detail on this thrust chamber produced as a single
full-build-plate part in an SLM 280 400W from SLM Solutions. Made from
Inconel 718 in 30-micron layers, the part had a build time of a little
more than 4.5 days.
lasers in a 3D metal printing setup can increase processing speed, but
also can introduce complications distinct from those of printing with a
single laser. These include scan-field alignment, the thermal state of
the AM system, laser utilization and soot management.
AM Parts: From Inception to Inspection
Creating production parts using metal additive manufacturing (AM)
requires consideration of the entire process chain during product
development. This journey involves several important steps.
