During its Metallic Advanced Materials for Aeronautics project, France’s Saint Exupéry Institute for Research in Technology employed the Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process from Sciaky, Inc. to deposit a titanium alloy at a rate surpassing 40 lb./hr. This reportedly marks the highest deposition rate achieved yet in industrial metal additive manufacturing (AM).
from EOS: The EOS M 290 Basic Training app enables existing and new
employees to train on machines and related software quickly from
anywhere, and even before machine delivery. The extended-reality app,
now available in the Additive Minds Academy (the EOS education provider
for the additive manufacturing industry) store for Apple and Android
devices, enables application specialists to learn how to operate M 290
machines and software and gain skills needed to advise customers and
provider nTopology, via launch of its third-generation latticing
technology, has updated its lattice-generation capabilities. The new
latticing tools, according to company officials, are easy to use, faster
than before and offer greater control over complex lattice structures.
provider Altair has acquired Gen3D, an AM startup originating at the
University of Bath (United Kingdom). Gen3D has provided pioneering work
in developing the implicit geometry method for describing highly complex
geometries such as lattice structures in AM.
Gen3D’s technology reportedly uses advanced implicit modeling techniques to rapidly create complex geometry not practical with traditional boundary-representation solid approaches. This allows for components to be designed simply by specifying the functional requirements for the part (loads, holes for fastenings, keep-out zones, ducts for fluid flow, etc.), according to company officials, who also note that the technology automatically filters out component geometries likely to cause downstream manufacturing issues. The reported result: the ability to create complex designs rapidly while minimizing the risk of in-print failures.
a Desktop Metal subsidiary that provides volume production of hydraulic
and fluid-power systems via metal AM, has become a qualified supplier
of aluminum flight parts for the helicopters division of Leonardo. Aidro
is one of only two suppliers to receive the Declaration for
Qualification of Process for Additive Layer Manufacturing with Leonardo,
a provider to aerospace, defense and security markets.
“We are proud to be selected by Leonardo Helicopters as a qualified supplier of 3D printed aluminum flight parts,” says Tommaso Tirelli, Aidro CEO and vice president of business development. “The components we are producing for Leonardo require extensive knowledge in managing fluids and fluid power, which has always been Aidro’s main competence.
has been labeled the necessary evil of AM. Unquestionably of utmost
importance in the production cycle, post-processing nonetheless can drop
challenges and roadblocks galore in time, manpower and costs.
Prototype Metal Parts at One-Tenth the Cost In Caldwell Manufacturing’s strategic-planning meeting in 2010, the executives looked at what kind of technologies were going to be disruptive, and unanimously agreed that 3D printing would be the key to their success.
