Locomotive manufacturer Wabtec is using metal additive manufacturing to produce next-generation locomotive parts. Several examples illustrate this technology’s potential savings in weight and assembly time.
Additive manufacturing encapsulates more than the 3D printer, and so too does AM's largest trade show. Lessons and trends gleaned from the 2021 in-person event.
Yes, according to 6K Additive. The materials company can use unconventional metal feedstock, including chips, in its unusual powder production process.
The editors of Additive Manufacturing Media came away from the event with 5 major takeaways regarding the adoption, advance and commercialization of AM. Read or listen to these observations.
Implementing additive manufacturing means starting somewhere. Seeking out the right pathfinder part can illustrate valuable lessons about the advantages of this technology.
Additive Manufacturing Media welcomes additive manufacturing experts, users and newcomers to a production-focused event in Cincinnati, Ohio, this October.
A 3D printing process from Mantle shapes extruded metal paste before it is sintered, dramatically reducing the time from print to finished part.
3D printing for production is more than buying a machine and pressing “print.” A microsite from Additive Manufacturing Media covers AM processes, materials, workflows, business considerations and more.
3D printed end-use parts are going onto vehicles with increasing frequency. Recent real-world examples showcase additive manufacturing benefits in design, weight savings and more.
Software tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) reveal geometries that can only be realized through 3D printing. HP and Siemens share an example in an episode of The Cool Parts Show: an air duct.
