Also within the medical field, additive manufacturing
has achieved major scientific achievements with a growing production of custom-made parts for implants.
Networking in person is still a very effective way to meet new people in the industry and see the latest additive manufacturing
technology that companies are offering.
Brennan Hogan, a program manager at LMI--a Virginia-based not-for-profit corporation that is consulting with the Defense Logistics Agency about the implications of 3D printing--said additive manufacturing
provides an opportunity for "turning the supply chain on its head.
Concerning the publication under his charge, Pete notes that a molder who subscribes to Additive Manufacturing
magazine will be able to "keep in touch with its rate of growth and see how others are succeeding--and struggling--with the technology.
The gas generator tests allow a direct comparison of the F-1 engine component built with traditional manufacturing -- welding and forging -- to a similar F-1 engine component with parts built with additive manufacturing
especially is useful in the expanding field of personalized medicine.
This new end-to-end process will address upstream material design and downstream manufacturing processes and testing to provide digital continuity for all engineering parameters necessary for the additive manufacturing
of an engine part: material science, functional specification, generative design, 3D printing optimization, multi-robotic production and certification.
New online business models that exploit additive manufacturing
are expected to be created and should add innovative design driven impetuous to the more traditional high street retailing sectors".
With eight advanced manufacturing facilities located throughout the United States, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing offers a range of additive manufacturing
technologies, along with conventional manufacturing services, including:
In the context of the accompanying conferences, Arburg will also hold several presentations on the topic of additive manufacturing
, commonly thought of as 3D printing, is a process that involves the manufacture of components from a digital model.
Visitors will get a first-hand look at the future of additive manufacturing
and its possibilities to transform the industry with our Big Area Additive Manufacturing
(BAAM) machine running Sabic material and printing polymer components 200-500 times faster and 10 times larger than today's additive manufacturing
helped researchers explore complex geometries, increase power densities, and reduce weight and waste while building ORNL's 30-kilowatt prototype inverter.
is a revolutionary process in which material is added to create a product, rather than subtracted, as in traditional manufacturing processes.
3D printing and additive manufacturing
have become major digital influences over the last 10-15 years and what is truly remarkable when exploring and capitalising in this technology is the multitude of products, applications and human labour-saving which can benefit today's industry.
