A New Partnership Offers Large-Scale 3D Printing and Five-Axis Machining

The side-by-side product offering from Cincinnati Inc. and Multiax America aims to provide high-throughput AM production for large parts under one roof.

Velo3D Launches Large Format 3D Metal Printer with Knust-Godwin as First Customer

The next-generation Sapphire machine will print up to 1 meter in height, said to be the tallest laser-powder additive manufacturing system.

Thermwood's New LSAM Model Provides Both Print and Trim Heads

Thermwood’s LSAM MT is a lower cost moving table version of its industry-leading LSAM (large scale additive system).

How a Prototyping 3D Printer Became a Production 3D Printer

Boyce Technologies was already a leader in manufacturing communications devices, but 3D printing and a partnership with BigRep have helped it remain competitive—first through prototyping, and now in production.

The Hidden Complexities of Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing

Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions’ robotic metal 3D printing process is a choreographed dance between welding, robots, automation, heat management and machining. The new venture may have a distinct advantage in the field: its parent company’s 125 year-old legacy.

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing Delivers Low Buy-To-Fly Ratios

Manufacturers in the aerospace industry buy expensive raw material with one common goal: to make it fly. To reduce its buy-to-fly ratio (the ratio of material inputs to final part output), this company turned to wire arc additive manufacturing to create near-net shape parts.

3D Printer Parts Made with 3D Printed Tooling: ExOne Walks the Walk

Accelerated timelines, fast design changes and low volumes — in many ways, 3D printing is the right market for 3D printing. ExOne’s newest generation of machines includes parts vacuum formed on 3D printed tools developed by Catalysis Additive Tooling.

Large-Scale Thermoset Composite AM System Launched

The Reactive Additive Manufacturing (RAM) system is said to be the world’s first large-scale additive manufacturing system compatible with thermoset resins. 

Why Robots and Additive Manufacturing Go Together

3D printing and robots enable one another. We miss the possibilities of one if we do not consider the other. The combination includes AM for end effectors, robots for 3D printing parts, and different modes of metal and plastic production.

The Promise of Robotic Metal Additive Manufacturing

Addere’s robot-based laser system builds using standard weld wire. The company was spawned from a robot integrator, and that background has been valuable for both overcoming the challenges and perceiving the possibilities of using a robot for metal 3D printing.

Thermwood’s Vertical Layer Printing Turns AM on Its Side

Vertical Layer Printing (VLP) 3D prints layers perpendicular to the floor, extending Z height to the length of the print bed — as long as 40 feet.

BigRep Unveils Large-Format 3D Printer for Industrial Applications

BigRep has unveiled its Studio G2 printer, designed to print engineering-grade materials and large-format objects developed for industrial applications.
