Making Fluid Tight Parts with HP 3D Printing

By |2018-11-07T08:17:56+00:00November 7th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

This article will discuss the fluid tightness of HP Multi Jet Fusion parts and show some real-life examples. HP MJF parts have been proven to be watertight without any additional post-processing, therefore parts can be used to have liquids or gases flow through designed channels. There are several variables that can be looked at to determine what a part can withstand. Using these variables, HP has conducted multiple tests with HP’s 3D High Reusability PA 12, tests that prove spherical shapes will hold higher pressures. Additionally, the design freedom of 3D printing helps to improve the efficiency of these components. For example, ducts can be unified and optimized for better product space due to geometries not possible with other technologies. There is also a greater level of customization possible among assemblies. Along with the structural strength of HP MJF parts, PA12 has a high chemical resistance, making it ideal for interaction with many fluids. This chart shows some of the fluids that have been tested. Now, let's take a look at several examples of MJF parts that are in use today: First, inside the JF 4200 there are over 60 MJF parts and one of these is this air duct. [...]

Trends In 3D Printing For Production Webinar

By |2018-10-23T10:05:25+00:00October 23rd, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Events, Rize|0 Comments

Addressing Challenges With Rize Join us for a live 40-Minute webinar featuring Sarah Goehrke, Managing Editor, Fabbaloo where we will be addressing the challenges of 3D Printing with Rize. According to the 2018 Wohlers Report, the number of companies that manufacture and sell industrial 3D printers grew 39% from 2016 to 2017. Despite this growth, relatively few manufacturers incorporate additive manufacturing on their production floors. Please join us on Thursday to learn: Market growth of the AM market Benefits of AM in Production applications Inhibitors to the proliferation of AM RIZE's approach to scale AM to every production floor EVENT DETAILS Thursday, October 25th 2:00 pm ET Please click the button below to register.

Desktop Metal Studio Machine Added to Our 3D Printing Arsenal

By |2018-10-22T08:48:20+00:00October 22nd, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Desktop Metal|0 Comments

We are very excited to announce the arrival of our Desktop Metal Studio Machine and Debinder. Upon adding metal 3D Printing to our arsenal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology solutions, we fully intend to leverage our decades of experience supporting manufacturing in the region via conventional tooling processes such as CNC Machining. Our ability to process metal parts will be invaluable as we work closely with our customers to target and develop key applications for Desktop Metal's Bound Metal Deposition Technology. For example, in cases where parts need to hold tighter tolerances then the "as sintered" specifications, or a better surface finish might be required to produce injection mold tooling such as mold inserts, Cimquest can utilize our 3 and 5 axis Takumi & Hurco CNC Mills for post-machining. An end-to-end solution The Desktop Metal Studio System is a three-part solution that automates metal 3D printing. Tightly integrated through Desktop Metal’s cloud-based software, it delivers a seamless workflow for printing complex metal parts in-house—from digital file to sintered part. Unlike laser-based systems that selectively melt metal powder, the printer extrudes bound metal rods—similar to how an FDM printer works. This eliminates the safety requirements often associated with metal 3D printing while [...]

Leverage and Import Organic Shapes into CAD (Pt. 1)

By |2018-10-17T09:00:14+00:00October 17th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg|0 Comments

This article will discuss leveraging organic shapes, and utilizing them in the CAD world. So why is it important to have that ability? In design, there are many situations that arise that may require the utilization of organic or freeform shapes. One example of this is the optional bust cap design on the MDCI perfume bottles. After carefully hand-crafting these, this complex shape needs to be inserted into the final cap design, producing some gorgeous results. To have to model those shapes in CAD would be a bear! Another example of when organic shapes might be required is when you are creating an ergonomic design. Whether you are following the shape of your lower back, your legs, or your hands, that freeform shape needs to be created, then included in the final mechanical design. This was the case of Joe Olson, who in less than a year, created the ErgoJoystick, to replace the typical knobs that cause fatigue due to the fact that they are designed for an upright position. Again, complex shapes, leveraged into CAD. The question is, how do you take complex organic freeform shapes, and bring them into the CAD world where you can complete the design [...]
