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...

Industry News |Why Investments in Additive Manufacturing Are Likely to Increase in 2020
Like any new technology, there’s always a lot of hype surrounding its release. Everyone sees it as “the next best thing” and the solution to all of their problems. 3D printers certainly fit the mold, so to speak.Consumers initially saw 3D printers as a “factory in every home,” but they soon came to realize that the items they produced weren’t functional. As the hype fizzled out, new fears emerged in the manufacturing segment, and some companies using 3D printers saw year-over-year declines in their revenue. The rise and fall of additive manufacturing took place over a few short years, but that wasn’t the end of the story.Additive manufacturing is on an upward trajectory as of late. This resurgence is due to the fact that the list of possible 3D-printable materials has more than doubled in the last five years.The increasing adoption of mixed-material printers is another reason for the return of 3D printers, as they were initially unable to create parts from more than one material. This ...

Industry News | Singapore housing board to trial concrete 3D printing at new estates
Singapore’s Housing and Development Board (HDB) is reportedly preparing to introduce 3D printed landscape furniture and architectural elements to new estates being built in Tengah and Bidadari. The announcement suggests that Singapore’s Housing Board is interested in exploring the potential of 3D printing not just for design or furniture elements but also for construction applications.In the short-term, the HDB will utilize one of the largest (if not the largest) 3D printers in South East Asia to construct landscape furniture and architectural details—like benches, customized sun and rain screens, 3D artwork panels, thematic pavilions and more. These elements will be integrated into two new housing estates: one in Bidadari which is expected to be livable by 2022 and one in Tengah, which is expected to be completed in 2023.The 3D printer in question, which works by depositing a concrete-based material, has a build capacity of 9 x 3.5 x 3.8 meters and is installed at the H...

Industry News | An Introduction to the Space Applications of Additive Manufacturing
In the early days of additive manufacturing (AM), the technology was primarily focused on design and rapid prototyping applications. However, recent additive manufacturing is progressively being employed to create high-performance mechanical components from refractory and technical materials.This is particularly common in space and aerospace engineering, where the combination of affordability, versatility, speed, and precision make additive manufacturing a desirable choice.Its ability to print refractories in lightweight architectures makes it an appealing method, supplying high-temperature performance at a tiny proportion of the weight of traditionally fabricated refractory metal parts.This article outlines the key strengths of AM compared to conventional subtractive manufacturing, and how these are being implemented to transform the landscape of space engineering.NASA performed tests on a recent rocket injector design in 2013. During these tests, the subscale injectors, while burning...

Industry News | Scientists discover that some metallic materials bend the rules
For nearly 100 years, scientists thought they understood everything there was to know about how metals bend. They were wrong.Materials science and engineering researchers at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison have now demonstrated that the rules of metal-bending aren't so hard and fast after all. Their surprising discovery not only upends previous notions about how metals deform, but could help guide the creation of stronger, more durable materials.'This creates new opportunities for materials design,' says Izabela Szlufarska, a professor of materials science and engineering at UW-Madison. 'It adds another parameter we can control to enable strength and ductility.'Ductility refers to the ability of a metal to bend. Most approaches for increasing a metal's strength do so at the expense of ductility – and as metals become more resistant to bending, they're more likely to crack under pressure. But the researchers' new mechanism for bending might allow engineers to strengthen a ...

Industry News|Florida doctor implants US-first metal additively manufactured finger bone replacement
Dr Daniel Penello, of Alexander Orthopaedic Associates, St. Petersburg, Florida, USA, has successfully implanted what is said to be the US’s first metal additively manufactured finger bone implant. The implant was designed for patient Robert Smith, whose middle distal phalanx was shattered in an ironworking accident in 2017.Smith was initially presented with the choice to live with the injury – which reportedly left him with no function and little feeling in the affected finger – or to opt for amputation of the digit. However, following further research and with the assistance of Additive Orthopaedics, Little Silver, New Jersey, USA, Dr Penello was instead able to develop and metal additively manufacture a finger bone implant custom-designed to fit Smith’s measurements.According to local news station, the implant was produced on a GE Additive Arcam Q20plus system by FIT America. Following the surgery, Smith is reported to have regained full mobility in the affected finger and has ...

Industry News | 3-D Printing and the Race for Space
July 2019 marked the 50-year anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. While the world has seen incredible technological and scientific strides since then, the broader space industry has been in stealth mode—exploring what’s possible, and what’s next, for humankind in space.In 2018, the space sector grew to an incredible $3.25 billion industry. A number of different technologies are driving this rapid growth, but the most promising one is industrial-grade 3D metal printing (a.k.a. metal additive manufacturing). Once met with skepticism, 3D metal printing has proven itself to be a cost-effective and efficient way to develop production-ready parts, making it the new darling of the commercial race to space.Designing hardware that’s made to last in space is no easy feat—outer space demands function, performance, and precision unlike anything required on earth. Traditional manufacturing often restricts engineers when designing complex hardware units. With the help ...

Industry News |Metal injection molding vs. machining: When MIM is best
Typical MIM parts used in disposable surgical instruments and assembled in a clean room. (Image from Micro)Metal injection molding (MIM) works well for high-volume production of small, complex medical device parts of consistent quality.Demand for small, lightweight, high-strength, complex-shaped components is growing across industries today, from automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and defense to orthodontics and medical devices.Traditional machining and injection molding each has its pros and cons in producing components for medical devices, especially where parts may be smaller and require more maneuverability. Metal injection molding (MIM) is a hybrid technology that integrates the shaping capability of plastic injection molding and the materials flexibility of conventional powder metallurgy. Material selection, part size, volume and tolerance are all instrumental factors in the decision-making process.MaterialsMIM is a process like plastic injection molding but with me...
