stars have been smashing guitars for decades. With that in mind,
Sweden-based Sandvik, a global engineering group, recognized an
opportunity to showcase its metal-cutting, materials technology and
metal 3D printing expertise, by producing a 3D-printed guitar able to withstand a beating by a rock star. See for yourself.
Lincoln Electric, a Cleveland, OH-based provider of welding products and systems, has acquired Baker Industries,
a Detroit, MI-based provider of tooling, parts and fixtures for the
automotive and aerospace markets. The acquisition complements Lincoln
Electric’s automation portfolio and its new metal additive manufacturing
service business, set to launch in mid-2019.
Industries is a manufacturer of high performance vacuum debind and
sintering furnaces for the 3D Additive Manufacturing furnace market, as
well as units for Metal and Ceramic Injection Molding. Available with
either metal or graphite hot zones, these units can process all of the
most common metals including Fe-Ni, 316-L, 17-4PH, and Inconel powders
and feedstocks as well as a variety of other materials including
titanium, tungsten carbide, tool steels, and superalloys. The new
Sintervac AM™ operates at pressures of 0-15 torr as well as positive
pressures of argon, nitrogen, or forming gas for increased flexibility
of processing binder-jetted parts, while the Workhorse AM™ is used for
the heat treat, annealing, and tempering of laser-sintered parts. For
