The increased use of CT scanning for metal powder bed fusion parts is usually associated with high-value parts and elevated quality requirements. There are increased requests for CT scanning on parts made of engineering-grade polymers like PEEK, PEKK or ULTEM and for fiber-reinforced composites like Nylon 12 CF.
Desktop Metal recently introduced the Studio System 2, which offers a way to eliminate the debind step and its chemical solvents through a complete reformulation of materials. The printer makes the AM process more hands-off and streamlined while also improving part quality.
It’s time to redefine AM and DfAM by what is possible from advanced LPBF systems—and to look ahead with the same determination the semiconductor industry used to better our lives.
FABTECH will be the first large-scale manufacturing trade show to return to McCormick Place in Chicago, September 13-16. The announcement comes as the state of Illinois moves into its final reopening phase.
Challenges around additive materials need to be addressed to allow for a smoother transition towards reliable mass production in medical.
SME had a chance to interview Liz Richardson, who directs the Pew Charitable Trusts’ health care products project. She recently published insights into how the FDA is approaching the emerging field of additive manufacturing in healthcare.
3D file formats are key to sharing medical data for 3D printing medical devices.
For users of additive manufacturing, a challenge is to verify 3D printed components where absolute reliability is required—for example in the medical field. This is especially true in orthopedics, where devices are placed in a human body.
AON3D, a 3D printer manufacturer of high-quality, end-use parts, today announced its $11.5 million Series A funding and a partnership with Astrobotic.
