Peter Zelinski, Editor-in-Chief of Additive Manufacturing and Modern Machine Shop, sees 3 big, major, long-term trends that continue to reshape manufacturing.
Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is combining directed energy deposition (DED), a metal 3D printing process, with laser peening for improved mechanical properties.
Recent advances in material processing capabilities have renewed interest in material jetting, the additive process that allows 3D objects to be built by placing different combinations of material drop-by-drop.
Working on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy, ORNL and Mazak will further develop the use of hot wire deposition (HWD) for additive manufacturing.
3D printing has become commonplace in machine shops as a way of manufacturing jigs, fixtures and other tooling. But where is it being used for production?
The inaugural Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Composites, hosted by CompositesWorld and co-located with CAMX, will explore the connection between additive manufacturing and continuous fiber reinforcement.
