Water Wash Out Tooling Process Developed

ExOne has qualified a new application for its 3D printing technology.

Precision Without Deposition

Is it possible to 3D print with carbon fiber fabric? It is, except that “printing” is not the right word. This additive process builds parts by stacking the carbon fiber sheets. The result is composite parts that don’t need tooling—but are strong enough that they could be used as tooling.

Hope to See You in Knoxville!

A Layered Approach to Boosting Business and the Industry

Faustson Tool uses its pioneering spirit to carefully take on metals additive manufacturing one step at a time, and today the company is committed to educating and supporting industry and its academic partners with this technology.

Material Improvement

In addition to the geometric freedom, additive manufacturing also provides the freedom to use metals that would be difficult to apply another way. Deka Research & Development is exploring both freedoms as it seeks to create a power source that could improve the lives of people around the world.

Panel Discusses Promise and Challenges of Both Additive and Hybrid Machines

Manufacturers ranging from orbital to underground shared their thoughts on additive manufacturing at the recent Innovation Days event.

Now Available: Additive Manufacturing May 2015 Digital Edition

Articles cover hybrid manufacturing, complementing plastics molding with 3D printing, and CT scanning for inspecting additive parts.

Additive by the Numbers

How long does it take for a company to learn to 3D print metal parts successfully? What portion of the overall manufacturing industry does additive manufacturing make up? These questions and more were answered during the nearly 200 presentations delivered at this year’s AMUG Conference.

Highlighting Hybrid Manufacturing

The winner of the first International Additive Manufacturing Award is a company that developed a head for adding metal additive manufacturing to an existing machine tool.
