KIMYA launches a very popular filament, ABS-R, that’s made with post-consumer recycled materials

By |2023-12-06T09:31:04-05:00December 5th, 2023|Categories: KIMYA, Technology|0 Comments

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) has a long history in the 3D printing world as it was one of the first plastics to be used.  Today, ABS is still a very popular material thanks to its excellent mechanical properties such as its toughness and impact resistance as well as its low cost point. These properties allow you to print durable parts that hold up to extra usage, high temperature and wear. KIMYA, [...]

Deploying the Measure Functions within Control X Professional

By |2023-10-04T08:01:25-04:00October 4th, 2023|Categories: Technology|0 Comments

In this month’s Metrology Minute, we are going to explore the various measurement tools available within Control X. Most of the time, when inspecting parts using Control X, we compare feature sizes and shapes to nominal CAD models. However, the Measure Tool allows you to request typically required measurements needed for analyzing manufactured part features, such as calculating rough distances. Two points are selected on the mesh or point cloud data and the distance between [...]

What is Bound Metal Deposition (BMD)?

By |2023-07-14T08:32:02-04:00July 14th, 2023|Categories: Technology|0 Comments

Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) is an extrusion-based metal additive manufacturing (AM) process where metal components are constructed by extrusion of a powder-filled thermoplastic media. Bound metal rods—metal powder held together by wax and polymer binder—are heated and extruded onto the build plate, shaping a part layer-by-layer. Once printed, the binder is removed via the debind process, and then sintered—causing the metal particles to densify. Prevalent metal AM technologies involve melting powder or wire feedstock using [...]

Mastercam Network License Borrow Utility

By |2023-02-27T08:44:59-05:00February 27th, 2023|Categories: Technology|0 Comments

This post will show you how to use the Mastercam Network License Borrowing utility when using a networkable software license for Mastercam. In previous versions of Mastercam’s Licensing, there were 2 options: a single-user USB HASP key and a NetHASP USB key which gave access to multiple users. Now, Mastercam has moved to using software licensing keys. These licenses support Mastercam’s 2019 to present versions and support similar licensing styles. They include local, individual-use software [...]

CNC Machining vs. 3D Printing

By |2022-05-06T11:45:28-04:00May 4th, 2022|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Technology|0 Comments

This article is reprinted from 3D printers have quietly been transforming production lines at some of the world’s leading manufacturers. Once considered primarily for prototyping; advancements in materials and productivity have made 3D printers a powerful tool for applications beyond prototyping that range from tooling to end-use parts. As these 3D Printers move from R&D onto the shop floor the question that keeps coming up is “Will 3D printing ever replace CNC Machining?” The [...]

Electric Vehicles and CNC Machining: What You Need to Know

By |2022-04-27T08:41:46-04:00April 27th, 2022|Categories: Technology|0 Comments

Electric Car Battery Pack The push for electric vehicles (EVs) is nothing new, but few expected the arms race Tesla would spark in the automotive world with their aggressive development. Now, IHS Markit predicts that 25 percent of all passenger vehicles sold worldwide will be electric by 2030. Others predict that even more will be sold by then. Currently, the inventory of automobiles, in general, is less than demand because of the supply [...]
