Practicality & Possibility
Some of the technologies and applications on display at Euromold 2013 illustrated the possibilities for using additive manufacturing to manufacture functional parts.
A Spin on Additive Manufacturing
A DMLS system from EOS enables Kappius Components to make design changes to their bike hub while experiencing reduced lead time and improved material strength.
The integration of manufacturing with product development creates a context that will help additive manufacturing advance.
Part examples from an established manufacturer of medical implants and instruments illustrate the expanded engineering possibilities that additive manufacturing is making possible.
Laser Sintering System Produces Complex Plastic Components
EOS’ compact Formiga P 110 plastic laser sintering system is designed to manufacture polyamide or polystyrene products directly from CAD data within only a few hours.
GPI Prototype Adds Third EOS DMLS Machine
GPI Prototype has installed its third direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) machine from EOS.
How Additive Manufacturing is Like CNC Machining (and How It's Very Different)
A leading machining business applies the skill of a toolmaker to using additive manufacturing effectively. The manufacturer shares application examples, as well as thoughts on the challenge and promise of this technology.
"Adding" to Your Tooling Options
Understand the benefits and applications of processes for making tooling through additive manufacturing.
The freedom to tailor a part’s shape to its engineering needs—particularly when the result is a complex organic form—might be the most transformative benefit of additive manufacturing.
Movable Components, No Assembly Required
A medical device maker produces a 13-piece articulating section with zero assembly work, thanks to DMLS’s ability to make the free-moving section as one complete piece.
Partners Create Medical Products Using DMLS
EOS has partnered with medical device manufacturer Innovative Medical Device Solutions (IMDS) to offer product development resources for metal additive manufacturing designs.
Additive and Subtractive Together
At the recent International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, EOS and machine tool maker GF AgieCharmilles demonstrated additive and subtractive processes working together to produce a titanium tibial tray for knee implants.
The Future of Manufacturing
According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?
Conformal Cooling Through DMLS
Unlike subtractive methods such as cutting or drilling, EOS’ direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) system is an additive process that enables users to seamlessly “build in” cooling channels while creating a part layer by layer.
Conformal Cooling: Another Tool in the Toolbox to Build a Better Mold
Moldmakers are just starting to scratch the surface of what can be done with conformal cooling, which involves an additive approach.
Laser-Sintering Technology Benefits UAV Industry
Because it involves no tooling and little machining or fixturing, EOS’ laser-sintering technology is said to be a cost-effective and fast alternative for the low production runs of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry.
EOS, EADS Assess Laser Sintering Savings
Laser sintering system manufacturer EOS, in collaboration with aerospace company EADS Innovation Works (IW), has started work on a study to understand the potential of the direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) process to generate energy and raw material savings. The two entities decided to carry out a collaborative environmental study after comparing the results of two previous studies.
Aerospace Parts from Powder
Additive manufacturing using a new laser sintering process may soon enable this Nebraska company to carve out a niche creating aircraft ducting from high-temperature PEEK polymers.
Additive Manufacturing System Offers Expanded Application Range
The EOSINT M 280 additive manufacturing system for metals is designed to increase part quality, reproducibility, cost-effectiveness and user-friendliness.
