Lattice Generation Software Advances Bike Component Design
Smart Aero Technology's bike stem design needed to be optimized for additive manufacturing. The ScanIP software from Simpleware reduced the stem's weight, increasing its strength.
Putting Safety First Adds Up
Recognizing several years ago that too many of its machinists were getting bruised and cut from bumping against boring bars and other sharp tools inside its lathes, this company was prompted to look for a simple way to cover these tools and protect ...
3D-Printed Tooling Speeds Manufacturing of Cutting Tools
Knight Carbide's insert delivery times had to wait on custom tooling, so they acquired a Mojo desktop 3D printer from Stratasys make their own. Lead times for insert carriers were shortened from weeks to just six hours.
The Intersection of Laser Sintering and EDM
For this moldmaker, wire EDM helps streamline production of inserts that are “grown” with cooling lines already inside.
Building Olympians, Layer by Layer
Personalized swords manufactured through 3D printing helped the Japanese fencing team take home the Silver in the 2012 Olympics.
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.
Success with Conformal Cooling Using Direct Metal Laser Sintering
Featured project from Phillips Plastics. The design for the DMLS conformal cooling tool insert incorporated channels that were designed to quickly and evenly cool individual cavities within the piece, which would not have been possible with conventi...
