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 [...]
Metal 3D printing enables machine shops to cost-effectively 3D print end-use metal parts with unparalleled speed and productivity. Mass production metal 3D printing solutions offer service bureaus and machine shops an opportunity to service a broader set of customers with an expanded array of applications, ranging from one-offs to batch (or even mass) production of metal parts. Benefits such as assembly consolidation and geometric freedom allows service bureaus to extend the benefits of metal 3D [...]

This blog post will take a look at a part that we recently printed on the Desktop Metal Shop System and then finished machined in our CNC manufacturing lab. The holder shown above is used to fixture multiple sensors for taking measurements in industrial equipment. It was printed in 17-4 PH stainless steel on the Shop System with a technology known as metal binder jetting. This process uses a binding agent to bond loose metal [...]
