Reprinted from Fabbaloo Metal parts made on an Ultimaker S5 3D printer [Source: Ultimaker] Ultimaker announced the “Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit”, which enables metal 3D printing on their S5 model. Metal 3D printing is usually a rather costly affair, involving specialized equipment, metal powder, complex HVAC environments, expensive post-processing equipment, sophisticated thermal simulation software, and a squad of engineers. As a result, it can be extraordinarily expensive to undertake and is applicable to [...]
Based in Karnes City, Texas, PGV has more than three decades of experience manufacturing equipment for the oil and gas, aerospace and robotics, and automation industries. Along with traditional manufacturing via CNC machining, the company is now moving into next-generation processes by integrating production-level metal 3D printing into their capabilities. “We could have chosen to invest in more CNC lathes or CNC mills, but we chose to go the additive manufacturing route because energy is [...]
A reprint from Additive Manufacturing. Binder jetting provides a way to create pure silicon carbide fuel structures that can withstand the harsh environment of a nuclear reactor and provide a strong barrier against the release of radionuclides. Dr. Kurt Terrani, the executive vice president at Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation’s Core Division, was on the team that developed a process for 3D printing silicon carbide at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. USNC licensed the technology for [...]
Automate the correct preparation of your materials for accurate, strong, and high-quality parts. The MMS enables connected productivity, repeatability and full traceability of the printing process. 3DGence MMS automates material storage, preparation, and post-print annealing – making successful printing of Ultra-Polymers like PEEK, ULTEM™, and Composites accurate and simplified. As the shift from prototyping to end-use parts has become a reality through industrial grade 3D printers and advanced materials, automation and pre-configuration ensures print success. [...]
