IIoT: The Next Step in Mold-Building Efficiency
Taking advantage of “digital threads” of data can help moldmakers compete in an evolving manufacturing environment.
Additive Manufacturing’s Assist to ID Grinding
By addressing a long-standing coolant-delivery problem, an additively grown nozzle enhanced the effectiveness of ID grinding in a complementary role.
Precision Without Deposition
Is it possible to 3D print with carbon fiber fabric? It is, except that “printing” is not the right word. This additive process builds parts by stacking the carbon fiber sheets. The result is composite parts that don’t need tooling—but are strong en...
A Layered Approach to Boosting Business and the Industry
Faustson Tool uses its pioneering spirit to carefully take on metals additive manufacturing one step at a time, and today the company is committed to educating and supporting industry and its academic partners with this technology.
One-Offs Without Tradeoffs
Does it have to be expensive to produce a one-off part? Does the one-off have to fall short of the manufactured part’s properties? A Boston-area 3D printer maker has an idea for how to produce components that are both low quantity and industrial qu...
Easing the Entry into Additive Manufacturing
With funding from America Makes, Optomec and MachMotion worked together to develop a retrofit additive manufacturing system for machining centers.
In addition to the geometric freedom, additive manufacturing also provides the freedom to use metals that would be difficult to apply another way. Deka Research & Development is exploring both freedoms as it seeks to create a power source that could...
Incorporating 3D Printing
Technologies that give moldmakers the ability to test out a couple different designs before investing in the final tool.
Highlighting Hybrid Manufacturing
The winner of the first International Additive Manufacturing Award is a company that developed a head for adding metal additive manufacturing to an existing machine tool.
Lessons and Learning Curves in Plastics 3D Printing
A learn-as-you-go approach has helped this custom molder grow its 3D printing capabilities.
