In this 4-min. additive manufacturing knowledge snack from EOS, learn the principles of blasting, the different types of media available—from soft and fine to coarse and aggressive--and best practices for blasting metal printed parts.
3D printing builds to near net or finished dimensions, vacuum heat
treating is an absolute necessity. Vacuum levels that approach 1 X 10-6
Torr produce clean and oxide free surface conditions that are
metallurgically stable. Critical temperature control is also a must to
avoid cracking and producing a strong and ductile part.
printing is a potential game-changer, but many companies lack talent
and expertise. EOS developed its groundbreaking Additive Manufacturing
(AM) Starter Kit to help leaders innovate with AM. Gain insight and
fast-track your 3D printing now!
has qualified the copper-chromium-niobium alloy GRCop-42 for use in its
Sapphire family of printers, with the first group of GRCop-42 demo
parts on display at the recently held RAPID + TCT event. Contract
manufacturer Knust Godwin will receive the first Sapphire printer
utilizing GRCop-42. The Texas-based company has three systems currently
in place to print other alloys, such as Inconel.
Software provider Oqton announced a strategic partnership with Eplus3D, a supplier of metal 3D printing machines, whereby Oqton’s artificial-intelligence AI-powered Manufacturing OS platform will be made available to users of Eplus3D’s metal 3D printers to provide full traceability and automation in dental manufacturing applications.
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.
