Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.
How to Select the Right Programming CAM Software for Directed Energy Deposition in Mold Repair and Modification
Selecting the right programming CAM software improves the use of directed energy deposition to repair and modify tooling.
A new metal AM system for batches of end-use parts was designed to permit productivity and machine pricing comparable to a CNC machine tool.
This mold manufacturer considers itself an engineering company with a focus on people and solving problems. In this episode of The Manufacturing Alliance, I sit down with two VPs to break down how three companies operate as one to provide creative solutions to complex manufacturing challenges.
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.
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.
Researchers propose a new approach to producing mold inserts with optical surface quality and no degradation using electroforming, thermal spray, and selective laser melting.
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.
