Industry News|Industrial-class 3D printer shipments increase in China,North America despite headwind
Shipments of industrial-class 3D printers (priced above $100,000) were up by more than 8% in Q3 2019 compared with the same period the previous year, according to market intelligence from Context (London). This key sector, which accounted for almost 70% of all 3D printer revenues for the period, saw even more impressive shipment growth of 12% on a trailing 12-month basis.“The increase came as a surprise, given the headwinds many vendors reported in the second half of the year, such as reduced demand from the struggling automotive sector, sluggish European economies and a generally weak global industrial manufacturing market,” said Chris Connery, VP Global Analysis and Research at Context.In the industrial polymer 3D printer market, HP (now number two in global shipments) saw excellent growth, shipping 347% more printers in Q3 2019 than in Q3 2018 as it continued to roll out its more affordable color-capable units. The company also began to ship the newest iteration of its high-end, pro...

Industry News | Researchers improve 3D printed alloys with ultrasound
Researchers at RMIT have found that sound vibrations can improve the micro-structure of 3D printed alloys.The team used high frequency sound waves to make the alloys more consistent and stronger than those printed conventionally. Lead author, Carmelo Todaro, highlighted that the method deals with inconsistencies in 3D printed alloys.“If you look at the microscopic structure of 3D printed alloys, they’re often made up of large and elongated crystals,” Todaro explained.“This can make them less acceptable for engineering applications due to their lower mechanical performance and increased tendency to crack during printing.”After the sound vibrations were applied during the printing process, testing showed a 12 per cent improvement in tensile strength and yield stress.“The microscopic structure of the alloys we applied ultrasound to during printing looked markedly different: the alloy crystals were very fine and fully equiaxed, meaning they had formed equally in all directions throughout t...

Industry News | U.S. military looks to boost use of additive manufacturing
The U.S. Army has demonstrated its interest in additive manufacturing over the years, but according to service secretary Ryan McCarthy, it’s now time to really ramp up adoption. At a recent press event at the Reagan National Defense Forum, McCarthy emphasized how crucial 3D printing will become to the military, especially for the production of spare parts.Presently, the U.S. military is using additive manufacturing, though in a limited capacity. For the production of spare parts, for instance, the defense organization largely relies on external partners to deliver 3D printed components. In order to reduce costs and improve efficiency even more, McCarthy says that this business model will have to shift to more in-house spare part production.“What really kills us is parts,” he said. “Parts: It’s why weapon systems have challenging operational readiness rates, it’s why weapon systems continue to get heavier over time as you incrementally upgrade the system.”In most industries, the ab...

Industry News|Additive Manufacturing Comes to Oil and Gas
Over the years, additive manufacturing has become prominent in different industries and has significantly influenced automotive and aerospace manufacturing . And now, the use of additive manufacturing, also referred to as 3D printing, is attracting the interest of the oil and gas industry.According to a report,  the research company explores how 3D printing is emerging as a key technology helping to drive industrial productivity in the oil and gas sector.“The oil and gas industry has shown slow but steady adoption of 3D printing in recent years,” said the oil and gas analyst at the company. “Initially, this technology was largely limited to polymer-based products. However, recent advancements in metal-based 3D printing are making this technology more relevant to the oil and gas industry.”In the oil and gas sector, some of the technology's applications include manufacturing spare parts on site, testing new product designs, and simplifying inventory management to save costs. Cu...

Industry News | Laser holograms – a new way to improve the quality of industrial 3D printing tech
One of the disadvantages of modern industrial technologies for laser three-dimensional printing is strong heating at the point of contact of the metal with the laser light beam. This heating melts the metal powder, but it also leads to the appearance of areas of internal mechanical tension and deformation of the workpiece. And all these things are practically impossible to predict, which makes it impossible to somehow compensate for them. However, a team of researchers from the University of Cambridge found a way to solve the problem described above. Using special holographic images generated by a computer using complex algorithms, it is possible to control the distribution of laser light energy in three dimensions, which avoids unnecessary heating of the manufactured part.“Instead of using a single beam of light from a high-power laser, we use several beams of laser light that are focused in a special way at the desired point in three-dimensional space”, says Professor Tim Wilkinson, ...

BASF inaugurates the second phase of its new antioxidants manufacturing plant in Shanghai
BASF inaugurated the second phase of its new, world-scale antioxidants manufacturing plant at its Caojing site in Shanghai, China. The second phase comprises a synthesis plant to produce the antioxidants Irgafos®168 and Irganox® 1076. With the completion of the second phase, the plant will have an annual capacity of 42,000 tons, mainly serving customers in China.“When we decided to construct a new plant to support our growing antioxidants business, we sought to build it quickly, safely and efficiently,” said Hermann Althoff, Senior Vice President, Performance Chemicals, Asia Pacific, BASF. “The plant is designed to reach high environmental standards, using the most efficient production processes. Located within the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park, it also benefits from its proximity to our Research and Development Center in Shanghai, that provides technical support to polymer producers and to the converting industry.”Sustainability built into the design and operationsThe...

Industry News|A Quick Look at Powder Metal Technology
Powder metallurgy was practiced long before ancient artisans learned to melt and cast iron. Egyptians made iron tools using PM techniques back in  3,000 B.C. The ancient Incans made jewelry and artifacts using precious metal powders. The first modern PM product were the tungsten filaments for electric light bulbs developed in the early 1900s. These were followed by tungsten-carbide cutting tools and self-lubricating bearings in the 1930s; automobile parts in the ’60s and ’70s; aircraft turbine engine parts, powder-forged connecting rods, and metal-injection-molding (MIM) in the ’80s; warm compacting in the ‘90s; and nanotechnology and the acceptance of metal 3D printing/additive manufacturing (AM) in the new century.Benefits and milestones of PM include:A cost-effective method of forming precision net-shape metal components that allows for more efficiently designed consumer and industrial products.The source of high performance, advanced particulate materials and alloys such as su...
