Wohlers Associates Inc. (Fort Collins, CO) announced the release of Wohlers Report 2018, a global report on the state of the additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing industry. Wohlers Associates has published its series of annual reports on AM for 23 consecutive years.
One of the key advantages of additive manufacturing is its digital thread, which allows for rapid communication, iteration, and sharing of a design model and its corresponding physical representation. While this enables an efficient design process, the flow of data opens vulnerabilities to cyber-attack.
The demand for high-quality gear teeth in areas such as electric mobility comes with great challenges. or example, in many applications generating grinding with corundum is a good solution, but this abrasive also has disadvantages in some applications. Grinding special geometrical modifications could, for example, have a negative effect.
Aerospace was an early, and enthusiastic, adopter of additive manufacturing. The technology has been used to make brackets inside of aircraft.
Today, Formlabs continued turning additive manufacturing’s talk into action with the release of the company’s newest material, Tough 1500, part of Formlabs’ Engineering Resin segment. Designed for the company’s stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers, Tough 1500 Resin enables engineers, designers and manufacturers to create stiff, yet pliable, parts that bend and spring back quickly under cyclic loading, according to the company.
How do manufacturers love additive manufacturing (AM)? Bianca Lankford, a mechanical engineer at Northrop Grumman, can count the ways: antennas, brackets, clamps, coldplates, ducts, plenums and test fixtures.
