Industrial-Scale 3D Printer Facilitates Cost-Effective Production
IMTS 2018: EOS North America’s EOS P 500 3D printer is designed to produce laser-sintered polymer partson an industrial scale.
EOS North America’s EOS P 500 3D printer is intended for laser sintering applications on an industrial scale. The printer is designed to produce high-quality, cost-effective polymer parts. Its software tools are intended for ease of use. The machine offers materials flexibility with operating temperatures as high as 300°C. Its modular design enables integration with future machine adaptions.
A video from Pratt & Whitney illustrates the steps needed to additively manufacture an aerospace component.
You can 3D print the part, but can you finish it? Here is how to overcome the challenge of part deflection in the machining of lightweight, complex AM parts.
Studies show that thin-walled additvely manufactured support structures may not be as good for machine tools as they might seem.
