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...

Industry News|How is Additive Manufacturing Used in the Pharmaceutical Industry?
What is additive manufacturing and why is it important?There are several types of additive manufacturing and many applications, but the main principle is commonly known as 3D printing. This is where layers upon layers of material are stacked and fused on top of each other to form a product, and controlled digitally by 3D software.Pharmaceuticals are normally produced through several basic processes such as tableting, or tablet compression, where powders are compressed into a more solid tablet form. These processes offer many disadvantages which can be avoided through the use of additive manufacturing, whilst also providing flexibility and ease of design.Advantages of additive manufacturing of pharmaceuticalsOne main advantage of using this technique for pharmaceutical manufacturing is that pharmaceuticals can be easily tailored for each patient. This is achieved through changing the release profile of the pharmaceutical, which essentially means adjusting when and for how long the activ...

Industry News | How 3D printing is poised to transform Indian manufacturing
India’s manufacturing sector is growing to become the fifth largest in the world by 2020. Aided by the Indian government’s initiative of ‘Make in India’, the nation’s vision is to make the country a global manufacturing hub. A resource-rich nation with respect to material and skilled manpower, the country seeks indigenous innovation to create a stimulating landscape of growth.Along with the growth of the country’s manufacturing sector built on conventional practice, additive manufacturing or industrial 3D printing has made a slow yet steady impact, calling for a change in many traditional applications. 3D printing encourages an application and design-driven approach, which has great scope for innovation and thinking out-of-box solutions.Industries such as automotive, aerospace and healthcare have been the key drivers for 3D printing in India through their early adoption of the technique. More than a decade ago, 3D printing was primarily used in prototyping, as it allowed engineers to a...

Industry News|Dubai’s Latest Sustainability Move: Have 25% Of All New Buildings Be 3D Printed By2025
Cement is used in almost all outlets of construction. From schools to roads to dams to houses, cement is the second most-consumed resource in the world. Consequently, all the cement used in the world contributes to approximately eight percent of all global carbon emissions. Moreover, cement contributes to flooding, water pollution, and soil erosion. While cement industries around the world have promised to decrease their net carbon emissions, cities and countries are beginning to seek different venues for infrastructure. Most notably, Dubai looks to implement its idea of the 3D printed building make up one-quarter of all new buildings by the year 2025.Why A 3D Printed Building?Initially used for creating small models and alternatives to plastics, 3D printing has created enormous strides this decade. From 3D printed cars to houses to organs, the limits to the technology are endless.In regards to infrastructure, 3D printing provides a more sustainable and cheaper way to...

Industry News|New method promises advances in 3D printing, manufacturing and biomedical applications
In a development offering great promise for additive manufacturing, Princeton University researchers have created a method to precisely create droplets using a jet of liquid. The technique allows manufacturers to quickly generate drops of material, finely control their size and locate them within a 3D space.Although both 3D printers and traditional manufacturers already use droplets to carefully add material to their products, the new jet method offers greater flexibility and precision than standard techniques, the researchers said. For example, delivering droplets with jets allows for extremely small sizes and allows designers to change droplet sizes, shapes and dispersion, as well as patterns of droplets, on the fly.'A key aspect is the simplicity of the method,' said Pierre-Thomas Brun, an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering at Princeton and the lead researcher. 'You draw something on the computer, and you can create it.'The researchers describe how to control...

Industry News |3D printing is helping to tackle nuclear waste
3D printing is finding more and more innovative applications – from printing meat in space to using giant printers to fashion entire boats – and the latest intriguing development is using the technology to help recycle more nuclear waste.Over in the US, scientists from the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have 3D-printed parts which will facilitate recycling more spent nuclear fuel.Currently, nuclear engineers can recycle 95% of spent fuel from a nuclear reactor, with the remaining 5% having to be stored as ‘long-term’ waste. The aforementioned 3D-printed equipment can be used to sort and recycle some of the latter, meaning that an extra 2% of nuclear waste can be recycled.That might not sound like a particularly impressive percentage, but when you consider that it’s 2% of 5% of waste that can’t be dealt with without moving to some kind of long-term storage – which obviously isn’t an ideal scenario – you get a bit more of an idea of the sort o...

Industry News|Design Considerations for Metal 3D Printing
With increased confidence in 3D printing, more design engineers are looking to see where new processes could add a competitive edge. While cost associated with 3D printing is reducing, metal printing could still be a large capital expense. Additionally, 3D printing metal still has many variables and controls that inhibit the process from being user-friendly. With a relatively large investment and the need for knowledge, design engineers might shy from printing in metal.Some initial benefits 3D printing metal or plastic is the ability to generate geometries not possible with other processes. Additionally, interior channels, combining multiple parts into one, optimizing geometries, improving functionality, reduced tooling, and increasing flexibility are some of the thoughts that may be in a design engineer’s mind. But there are also other indirect benefits of 3D printing to consider.With increased confidence in 3D printing, more design engineers are looking to see where new processe...

Industry News | The Financial Benefits of 3D Printing
3D printing is no longer tomorrow’s promise; it is available for manufacture today. But with much competition in the investment sphere of technological innovations, from Artificial Intelligence to Augmented Reality, how do you make the business case for 3D?Down the road, 3D printing will bring about a radical new era of total supply chain transformation, with local, print on demand solutions dramatically reducing both costs and time to market. But this will take time and, as Paul Croft, Director, Ultimaker GB explains; any business dealing with additive manufacture can explore 3D printing to achieve incremental gains today.Complementary ModelThe goal of 3D printing was never to replace traditional manufacturing processes – contrary to what a small number of hype-mongers may have insisted. 3D is a complementary technology that is built to work alongside current manufacturing methods to develop new efficiencies at every stage of the process.The ability to print spare parts on-d...
