The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle 3D printer includes a material station and air manager for automated material handling, optimized air filtration and filament humidity control.
“Because an overwhelming majority of BAAM-printed parts require secondary machining, we’ve had a goal to partner with a leading CNC machine manufacturer for some time,” says Alex Riestenberg of Cincinnati Inc.
While 3D-printed conformal coolant lines in steel injection molds reduce production costs and improve part quality, aluminum molds can yield similar results faster and at a lower cost.
IMTS Spark: Designed for industrial production of high-quality metal parts, the EOS M 300-4 performs direct metal laser sintering (DMLS).
MSP recently worked with Renishaw PLC to automate part setup and improve productivity for 3T Additive Manufacturing Ltd., helping cut part setup time from 5 hours to 10 minutes.
Desktop 3D printers are immensely useful in a machine shop, but can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and ultrafine particles (UFPs) that are harmful to humans. Here are some guidelines to install and operate them safely.
Studies have shown that abrasive finishing is flexible enough to finish 3D printed parts with complex geometries and difficult-to-machine materials, although the best process depends on a number of factors.
As the additive manufacturing company 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing prepares for production, it has one critical advantage over the competition: a standalone CNC machine shop.
A German mold builder offers a solution for printing high-speed steels with high carbon content to produce highly dense and wear-resistant molds via selective laser melting.
Cobra Aero's metal 3D printer has been running "practically non-stop" since it was purchased last year. Two major wins for this process.
Reporting from the front lines of the fight against coronavirus — still deep in the trenches.
Dr. Jeffrey Graves replaces Vyomesh Joshi, who announced his retirement in February.
Additive manufacturing is realizing its promise for scale production during the coronavirus period, but machining is an essential downstream capacity need that has to be expanded to keep up.
Sister publication Additive Manufacturing’s video series focused on industrial 3D printing releases special episodes showing how and why additive manufacturing is growing during the coronavirus pandemic.
For this Omaha shop, periodic part inspection required an automated turning cell to pause production. Printing a plastic parts collection chute for delivery outside the cell solved this problem, and it turns out the shop has found 3D printing to be valuable in many other ways.
Now in its second season, the YouTube series from Additive Manufacturing uses cool parts to explore the capabilities of industrial 3D printing.
If you are a medical professional in the U.S., you've likely heard that 3D printing can be an answer to equipment shortages. Here's how to find local 3D printing specialists and how to talk to them once you have.
The process, dubbed Activat3D copper, was developed by Australian company Spee3D by modifying its metal 3D printer technology.
When should a machine shop consider production metal 3D printing? Part of the answer might be when that machine shop also does design. Cobra Aero is a small shop thriving with AM, because it’s also an OEM.
After campus had largely shut down, several labs and departments at the venerated engineering school organized with local hospitals to manufacture critical parts needed to fight the coronavirus.
