Additive manufacturing can aid conventional manufacturing through the production of tooling. This article showcases 10 clever uses of 3D-printed tooling.
Collaborative effort successfully manufactured a 22-foot-long vacuum trim tool for production of main rotor blade components.
At the end of 2019, Additive Engineering Solutions moved two of its BAAM 3D printers out of the way and began to dig a hole in the floor. How going lower allows AES to build higher.
Our first episode of The Cool Parts Show from inside a 3D printer! Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) produces exterior components of a robot submarine and changes how this AUV is marketed.
Researchers will use the world's largest polymer 3D printer to develop recyclable wind blade molds that reduce lead times and costs.
Collaborative efforts like this can bring together diverse organizations that specialize in different aspects of an emerging technology and often produce results that none of the participants could possibly achieve on their own.
Directed energy deposition while the part is spinning enables a means of 3D printing axially symmetric parts. The operation is like CNC turning with material added instead of machined. Open Mind discusses programming the machine paths for this type of build.
Partnership qualifies and integrates customized materials for use on Titan’s pellet-based Atlas 3D printers to produce stronger, lighter and more flexible parts.
Industrial printer features extrusion technology and an actively heated enclosure, enabling customers to print large parts using high-performance materials.
Metal 3D printer is designed to be highly productive with a deposition rate up to 1,000 cc/hour, using 10 × 1kW lasers.
This radiator cover is comparable in strength to an injection molded part, and was made at lower cost than 3D printed polymer.
Airtech Advanced Materials Group’s capabilities can take tooling from conception to the shop floor significantly faster than conventional methods.
ExOne believes Freshmade 3D’s patented approach offers additional unique benefits and can help accelerate adoption of 3D printed sand tooling solutions.
Machine features 12 lasers designed to use in serial production for high-volume applications as well as for printing large parts.
The widespread outsourcing of large machine castings led a collaborative team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to tackle the machine tool supply chain. The first step? 3D print the largest cast component.
Youngstown-area Humtown Products supplies both conventional and 3D printed sand cores and molds to foundries around the world. But sand tools for castings may be only the beginning.
Extra capacity, large-format printer can increase production throughput by five times and reduce cost-per-part by up to 75%, compared to its predecessor.
Leasing program is said to enable easy, flexible and affordable additive manufacturing.
Mighty Buildings wants to change the construction industry with prefabricated houses 3D printed on demand from thermoset polymer composite. Two such buildings have already been installed.
In a joint project, Safran Landing Systems and SLM Solutions tested selective laser melting to produce a component of a nose landing gear for a bizjet, marking a world first for a part of this size.
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.
Large-scale additive manufacturing platform is the largest 3D printer yet simulated. Watch video for example of how simulation using program G-code catches an error that would otherwise lead to a failed build.
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.
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 LSAM MT is a lower cost moving table version of its industry-leading LSAM (large scale additive system).
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.
