GE Aviation announced that its GE9X engine, featuring 3D-printed metal parts to aid light-weighting and other efficiency efforts, has been certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, a key milestone in the GE9X’ journey to power the new twin-engine Boeing 777X family. The engine is designed to achieve 10-percent-lower specific fuel consumption compared to its predecessor, and five-percent less than any other engine in its class.
TRUMPF’s TruPrint 2000 produces high-quality 3D printing results cost effectively. The production process consists of a closed powder circuit under shielding gas, which allows for safe and simple operation. Built-in system monitoring ensures a detailed result consistently. With low costs per part, the TruPrint 2000 is an unmatched economical solution.
metals are a class of materials with a disordered, non-crystalline,
glassy structure, created when metals or their alloys are cooled very
quickly to bypass crystallization during solidification. But these
materials often are not considered in engineering applications due to
the difficulty in joining them to other materials and limitations in
manufacturing thick sections. A new white paper from Fabrisonic tackles
Centorr Vacuum 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.

Essentium, Inc., at 10 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, October 13, will present a virtual panel discussing supply-chain vulnerability; why additive manufacturing (AM) is vital for manufacturers’ self-sufficiency, agility and innovation; and the strategic considerations for deploying AM as part of a supply-chain strategy to mitigate disruption and build business resilience. The panel will provide insights into why manufacturers are struggling with current supply chains, the role of AM in solving supply-chain risk, and the key steps to adopting AM to build resiliency.
