a developer of machine-learning (ML) technology for use in additive
manufacturing (AM) simulation and process software, has collaborated
with GKN Aerospace to use the Intelligens Alchemite ML engine to help
develop a titanium-alloy composition with the highest thermal
conductivity possible without diminishing mechanical properties. The
team considered 20 physical properties across 256 historical alloys to
generate an ML model of properties of interest, and then ran Alchemite
optimization for high thermal conductivity and strength, to eventually
arrive at a proposed alloy.
seen at AMUG, Autonomous Manufacturing showcased its manufacturing
execution system and workflow software for AM. Among noteworthy features
of the complete end-to-end workflow solution: an ordering portal
visitors can use streamline and standardize their order-management
processes, with a centralized order-management system and integrated
Labs has announced availability of its ultra-low porosity 316L and 17-4
PH stainless-steel powders. These powders reportedly exhibit tap
densities to 85 percent and melt to produce parts averaging densities
greater than 99.95 percent.
PostProcess Technologies has released its Connect3D AM platform, designed to more easily automate post-processing and connect to a user’s full AM production system. The platform, available as an annual subscription service, is the latest addition to the company’s full-stack solution of hardware, chemistry and software, and complements PostProcess’ current AutoMat3D software application.
HP Inc. and Legor Group SPA announced a strategic collaboration for the development of innovative precious-metal materials for HP’s Metal Jet system. The collaboration initially will focus on enabling the production of functional stainless-steel accessories for the jewelry and fashion markets. In parallel, the companies will implement an R&D program to parameterize and characterize bronze and silver powders, and, eventually, gold powders, the core material in the precious sector.
Metrology, Brighton, MI, has introduced version 13 of its AutoMeasure
software, used to drive its NEXIV series of CNC video-measuring
machines, with new features that allow even novice operators to run the
machines and compare inspection results automatically against CAD
models. Included is a navigation function that guides the operator
during development of a new program in an easy-to-understand,
New from Kurtz Ersa, Inc.: the compact Alpha 140 metal-AM machine, designed for simple, economical operation. The laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) printer features a fiber-coupled diode laser (focus diameter of 110 µm) with 200 W of power to process stainless and tool steels as well as nickel-based alloys. Build volume is 140 mm dia. by 200 mm high.
