As Methods 3D continues to add 3D Systems products to its additive manufacturing offerings, the company will outline  the success that one of its clients has had in using this technology to produce molds.

Jarod Rauch, CNC programmer at Indiana-based tool and die shop B&J Specialty Inc., and Benjamin Fisk, general manager at Methods 3D, will speak at the 2017 Additive Manufacturing Conference about their success deploying a 3D Systems ProX DMP 300 3D printer to achieve conformal cooling in molds. Using this printer, company can now supply water into mold areas that would not be possible with conventional machining methods, while maintaining a uniform distance between the molding surface and cooling lines. 3D printing technology also provides the ability to alter the cooling lines’ geometrical shape to adapt for any pressure drops throughout the line. This technology opens new possibilities and enables B&J Specialty to stay competitive, the company says.

The presentation takes place Wednesday, October 11, at 11: 45 a.m.

  • The Future of Manufacturing

    According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?

  • 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.

  • The Value of Metal and Powder Simulation

    Two videos from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories show how SLM works at the powder level.
