Producers Focus On Innovative 3D Resins

Two new production resins are available for 3D printing: one from 3D Systems is a thermoset that thinks it’s a thermoplastic and another from Carbon is a hybrid that’s 30 percent biomaterial, the company’s first resin with a reduced carbon footprint.

Lessons Learned from Metalcutting Can Guide AM

Additive manufacturing (AM) once was called “rapid prototyping.” Its earliest forms made prototype parts—and nothing else. However, manufacturers were intrigued by the prospect of using it to make cost-effective metal parts in production. That day is here.

Materials Made for Manufacturing the Future

With more manufacturers and engineers embracing additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, for serial production of functional parts, the demand for and creation of high-performing additive materials continues at a rapid pace.

Traditional Versus Laser Welding

With much faster processing speeds and higher quality, you might think laser welding would quickly take over the field. But traditional welding hangs on. And depending on who you ask and what applications you consider, it may never go away.

HVCC Builds Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills

Troy, N.Y.-based Hudson Valley Community College is building a $14.5-million, 37,000-sq.-ft. advanced manufacturing center to train CNC machinists, toolmakers, CNC programmers, and industrial maintenance personnel. The Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills (CAMS) is expected to be completed this May and open in September.

At RAPID + TCT, An Emphasis on the Here And Now

At this week’s RAPID + TCT show, there was an emphasis on how 3D printing was part of the present and not so much part of a distant future. Various companies – from makers of 3D printers to suppliers of materials – talked about how additive manufacturing is part of the present.

MakerBot Launches METHOD Materials Development Program

MakerBot, a 3D printing company and subsidiary of Stratasys, announced at Formnext 2019 the METHOD Materials Development Program and MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder for METHOD to enable 3D printing with a wide range of engineering-grade materials from leading filament suppliers.
