3D Printing Materials

In Automotive, Is Additive Manufacturing an Answer for Die Cast Tooling?

The largest high-pressure die cast tool builder in North America is 3D printing die inserts and water jackets for major automakers. It’s a tough sell, but one company is succeeding — and it’s just getting started.

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. 

Material Jetting - It's Like Printing, Just in 3D!

Recent advances in materials 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.

Ultem, PEEK or PEKK? Choosing Between High-Temperature Plastics

How do you choose between these high-performance materials? A conversation with Arkema and Plural AM sheds light on 3D printing with these polymers.
