Formlabs, known for its line of desktop stereolithography (SLA) printers, is looking to expand its 3D printing reach with availability of its new Fuse 1 benchtop industrial selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printer. Under development for nearly seven years, the Fuse 1 marks a notable change for Formlabs as they expand into a new additive manufacturing process.

Carbon Fiber Recycling Developing as an Industry

Anyone who’s worked with wind turbine blades or just seen one up close can attest to the massive size of these clean-energy workhorses. Ever thought about what happens to that costly, high-tech material once the blade reaches the end of its lifespan in 20 years or so?

Helping Your Parts Shine On

The deburring and finishing of machined and fabricated parts is a necessary but often disregarded step in the manufacturing process.

Reduce Cost, Increase Speed with Model-Based Definition

Manufacturers need to create more production setups as batch sizes get smaller. Skilled labor continues to be hard to hire and keep. Higher levels of automation are needed, not just in material handling but also in fabricating, machining, assembly, and inspection.

Avoiding Costly Defects

Avoiding product defects—and quickly finding and fixing those that occur—is a critical priority for all manufacturers.

Mastering Microturbines

Extreme complexity is inherent to jet engines of all sizes, from those on a Boeing 777x to ones that power the smallest drone.
