From visiting over 4000 manufacturing sites and working with manufacturing CEO’s over the last 15 years, one thing is clear Manufacturers that embrace new technology and process improvement continue to succeed.
Frankfurt, July 2nd, 2018 – Additive manufacturing technologies (so-called 3D printing) are of increasing importance to mechanical engineering – not only for the production of prototypes but as a serious additional manufacturing technology.
For all the talk about additive manufacturing being a game-changer for the industry, it hasn’t seen the adoption one would have expected. On issue at the root of the problem is a lack of talent that understands the technology, processes and equipment.
Mr Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP inc, India shared his views with Aditya Chandavarkar, Co-Founder, Indian 3D Printing Network about HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and their strategy and future plans in India.
In this interview, product manager Christian Radau explains why gas flow management is important for selective laser melting, and where he sees potential for optimization as well as added value for users and final customers.
Complex hydraulic components made via metal 3D printing can incorporate details that would be difficult or impossible to duplicate through conventional machining, and weight and size are reduced without compromising performance.
HP launched its Multi Jet Fusion system globally in mid-2016 and has been successful in taking this technology to different locations since with 65 resellers and counting. 2017 saw a major expansion across the Asia-Pacific region including India with a […]
The applications and benefits of Medical 3D Printing are well known and have been proved in many isolated case studies and stories across the world. However, apart from some rare instances, Medical 3D Printing has not made much headway in the Indian healthcare industry. However recently due to the efforts of some medical centres and other allied stakeholders, Medical 3D Printing is surely and slowly gaining traction.
Imaginarium reviews 5 brands reinventing themselves with 3D Printed Jewellery. Take a good look at this list of online jewellery brands that are stepping their game up with this cutting edge technology.
2017 has been an exciting year for the 3D printing industry. There have been plenty of new players appearing on the scene, as well as countless new collaborations and innovations. Materialise with the help of their industry experts and visionaries is anticipating some key trends for 2018.
3D printing is a new and exciting technology that enables learning by designing and making a real object, an object we can touch and feel. We can design practically anything and create the most incredible objects with only imagination being the limit. This can be used in virtually all fields and this can revolutionize our education system.
The applications and benefits of 3D printing aka Additive Manufacturing (AM) in health-care settings are well known and have been proved in many isolated case studies and stories. Still apart from a few rare instances, there has not been much enthusiasm about this disruptive technology in Indian healthcare industry. I know this from my personal experience as a active provider of tertiary healthcare service in the capital city and as well from the numerous personal and professional interactions with the industry experts.
World 3D print community has recognized and liked the TCT FormNEXT and we can see this in its growing popularity evidenced by participation and visitor footfall. FormNEXT provides window to the year ahead and this year event has not only done it again as expected but also was in full Form from first day to the last hour. The Event draws together AM experts, OEMs, Allied services, industry seeking to change, Tech enthusiasts and general visitors for a tech exposure.
The majority of plastic products in the world today are manufactured by injection molding. With the right combination of 3D printers and injection molding machines, it is possible to create molds in-house to produce small, functional parts in production plastics.For low-volume production (approximately 10-100 parts), 3D-printed molds save time and money. They also enable a more agile manufacturing approach, allowing engineers and designers to easily modify molds and continue to iterate on their designs with low lead times and cost.
We all live in an age that is witness to what many are calling the Third Industrial Revolution – 3D Printing. 3D printing, more professionally called additive manufacturing, has the potential to move us away from the era of mass production and bring us to a new reality of customizable, one-off production.
While the UAE has a relatively small population compared to industrial nations like the US, China, and Germany, it is home to a dynamic economy, progressive government and modern infrastructure. As well as a determined thirst for growth that few countries in the world can match.
Additive manufacturing (AM) also commonly known as 3D printing, enables the freeform fabrication of 3D structures directly from digital data generally in a layer by layer methodology. In recent years AMhas become a significant complimentary technology to the conventional subtractive and formative manufacturing processes. Due to the high level of digitization and automation involved in AM processes, the technology plays a significant role in the Industry 4.0 manufacturing ideology.
Laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) is a highly versatile additive manufacturing (AM) technique for producing complex metal components direct from CAD, without expensive tooling and with minimal waste. The choice of processing parameters used to melt and solidify the metal powder is fundamental, as the thermal history of the alloy affects both its integrity and its strength. Selecting parameters that suit the material in question and the specific component to be built are critical to success, particularly in series production applications.
