Makes announced a new Rapid Innovation Call (RIC) for projects worth
$500,000 in total funding from the Air Force Research Laboratory,
Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Manufacturing and Industrial
Base Technology Division, to further advance the maturation of additive
manufacturing (AM) technologies.
This RIC will address needs in six topic domains including understanding
build interruptions via AM-monitoring; AM part families for product
qualification and certification; and defect detection and mitigation via
With over 20 years of experience in the critical power business, ABB’s Electrification Business Area has pioneered a power quality solution designed specifically for the additive process. “As a global leader in power protection, we are excited to partner with the major additive manufacturing producers and provide them with an integrated power protection system to protect their 3D processes,” said Patrick Gannon, ABB’s Additive Segment Leader. “ By incorporating our channel partners who have system integration expertise, we create a turnkey solution to enhance production capability by helping to improve delivery time and protect critical 3D equipment and builds in the event of a power anomaly.”
Diego, CA-based AM startup Fabric8Labs announced closure of a Series A
funding round that has netted $19.3 million. The capital infusion
reportedly enables Fabric8Labs to accelerate commercialization of its
miniaturized metal-AM approach that offers applications possibilities in
semiconductor packaging, electronics, medical, thermal management and
Fabric8Labs' process rapidly fabricates complex metal parts at the
atomic level, according to company officials, enabling superior feature
resolution and enhanced material properties. The distinct approach
reportedly eliminates the need for expensive metal powders and
time-consuming post-processing, and the system operates near room
temperature, thus minimizing total energy consumption as compared to
your metal 3D printing with the most technologically advanced and
reliable additive manufacturing machine on the market today, producing
high-quality components at a reduced cost-per-part. Ready to see your

methods for supporting metal additive (AM) parts have imposed
limitations on part design. The increased complexity of removing
supports has added cost and lead time, and some parts & applications
have even been disqualified from AM due to support-based issues. Watch
now to learn how NoSupports Metal Printing fixes that.
