Puris & ExOne 3D Print Largest Complex Titanium Part for Commercial Use

Puris & ExOne 3D Print Largest Complex Titanium Part for Commercial Use

By Davide Sher

Due in part to a rapid increase in competitors to meet the rapidly growing demand of larger metal part manufacturers, metal 3D printing is getting bigger and faster. Puris, a US-based leading producer of titanium powder for additive manufacturing, collaborated with ExOne to produce the largest complex, 3D-printed titanium part for commercial use ever 3D printed.
“There is a lot of activity in this arena and larger parts have been printed, but we believe this is the largest complex titanium part to be printed to date,” said Puris’ CEO Craig Kirsch.…

Exclusive: NVBOTS Launches NVLABS with New High-Speed, Multi-Metal 3D Printing

By Michael Molitch-Hou

The world of metal 3D printing has just become a lot more interesting, as an unexpected player enters the game. Boston-based NVBOTS  has announced the establishment of NVLABS, an R&D division dedicated to the development and implementation of cutting edge 3D printing technology, led by Dr. Paul Burke as the firm’s newly appointed Chief Research Officer.  The first technology to come out of NVLABS bodes well for the rest of their research endeavors, as NVBOTS has also announced the creation of  a brand new, high-speed, multi-metal 3D printing technology capable of fabricating with stainless steel, titanium, nickel, copper nickel, aluminum, zirconium, silver and palladium in the same build and at 10x the speed of current metal 3D printers.…

Airbus Subsidiary Opens Metal 3D Printing Facility

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Airbus subsidiary Premium AEROTEC has just reinforced its parent company’s commitment to 3D printing end parts, giving credence to the notion, posited by Airbus’s Peter Sander, that 2016 will see a big increase in 3D printing for industrial end products. The German aerospace manufacturer has just opened its first manufacturing facility for 3D printing titanium aircraft components, where it has begun serial production of metal 3D printed parts. Additionally, Premium AEROTEC is examining the use of Norsk Titanium‘s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ titanium parts for use in the production of the A350 XWB.…

Northwestern’s Low-Cost Tech Turns Rust into 3D Printed Iron

Northwestern’s Low-Cost Tech Turns Rust into 3D Printed Iron

By Michael Molitch-Hou

In order to bring down the cost of metal 3D printing, researchers and industrial R&D divisions are working on new approaches to the technology that forgo lasers and electron beams for other methods altogether.  While XJet, in Israel, will be introducing its metal inkjetting to the world, hopefully, sometime soon, Northwester University scientists have their own metal inks that they say they can 3D print similarly to fused filament fabrication. We’ve actually covered the work of Ramille Shah, assistant professor of materials science and engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and of surgery in the Feinberg School of Medicine, in the past, but, in a recent study published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials, Shah and her team describe the process in even greater depth.…

The Lunar Quattro Rover: One Small Step for Audi, One Giant Leap for 3D Printing

By Tyler Koslow

When it comes to implementing 3D printing in the manufacturing of automotive vehicles, German automobile company Audi has demonstrating their own use of the technology on a regular basis. Late last year, Audi had announced that their future use of metal-based 3D printing is imminent, and had even produced a fully 3D printed functional replica of the 1936 Auto Union Type C Grand Prix racer. Now, Audi is taking these efforts from planet Earth into outer space, collaborating with and sponsoring the Berlin-based team from Part Time Scientist to create the 3D printed Audi Lunar Quattro moon rover.…

New 3D Printed Medical Tool a Breakthrough for ACL Reconstruction Surgery

New 3D Printed Medical Tool a Breakthrough for ACL Reconstruction Surgery

By Tyler Koslow

Although many people may know the 3D printer manufacturer Stratasys as the corporate behemoth that took over MakerBot back in 2013 (Thanks, Print the Legend), their positive influence on the medical and dental industry can not be denied. Over the past couple of years, Stratasys has placed a keen focus on improving the cost and quality of traditional medical tools. From the release of their dental-driven Objet 3D printers to supplying surgeons with realistic heart models to help patients’ lives, Stratasys has certainly made it a mission to innovate the medical and dental industry with 3D printing technology.…

3D Systems Displays New ProX DMP 320 Metal 3D Printer at CES 2016

By Michael Molitch-Hou

After the acquisition of Phenix Systems, 3D Systems has been slow to roll out its metal 3D printing technology, an issue raised in a class action lawsuit against the company. Nevertheless, the company has been making progress and, today, 3D Systems announced the availability of their newest system, the ProX DMP 320.

The ProX DMP 320 is designed to be a high precision, high throughput laser sintering metal 3D printer capable of handling itanium, stainless steel, and nickel super alloy. Built with exchangeable manufacturing modules, the ProX DMP 320 is meant to allow for quick material change. …

Airbus Is Ready for Industrialization of 3D Printing in 2016, Peter Sander Reveals

By Davide Sher

January is the time of the year where we make forecasts on what is going to happen. As I have written before, at an industrial level, this is going to be the year where we are going to see the first examples of fully automated additive factories actually go beyond case studies and into widespread implementation. This is happening primarily because – after dental, medical and jewelry – now the aerospace industry is beginning to use ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing) to make many, serial, final parts.…

By Davide Sher

I think that, until the end of 2014, it was still theoretically possible to discuss the top 5 3D printing innovations of the year. Today, I don’t find that possible any longer. There are just way too many things happening in the 3D printing industry and the crazy part is that we are still, really, at the very beginning. Only a couple of years have passed since the mass public discovered that 3D printing exists and, yet, this technology is now at the forefront in just about every industrial, professional, and artisan sector of manufacturing.…
