Perhaps you have heard that additive manufacturing—a.k.a. 3D printing—can be used to make injection tooling inserts out of plastics—relatively quickly, at relatively low cost, and with little human labor involved.
During K 2013, Arburg captured everyone’s attention with its novel Freeformer machine for additive manufacturing. We’ll find out soon what will be the next showstopper, but in the meantime, here’s a preview of some cool and innovative 3D printing technologies that you’ll see in Dusseldorf.
Inkjet-printed ABS molds produce functional prototypes in ASA, PC, and TPE.
More stories are emerging that take 3D printing beyond just the prototyping phase to factory tooling and even short-run production, exploiting the technology for mass customization of consumer products.
3D printing is an exciting industry – there’s always something new going on.
During the 3D Printing USA Conference IDTechEx's Rachel Gordon gave an update on the state of the 3D printing industry as it’s been quite an interesting 2015.
Additive manufacturing appeared in tooling inserts, robot grippers, and molded parts.
Will the rise of 3D printing mark the dawn of a new "golden age for material scientists"?
All over, and in a variety of roles.
A custom LED-illuminated microphone for Bono, created by the Dimension 3D Printer. 3D printing lends itself to some pretty cool and interesting stories and Plastic Technology’s Lilli Sherman recently sent one my way that involves the band U2.
Advances in hybrid longer-fiber thermoplastic composites, growth in additive manufacturing, and increasing adoption of renewable materials in automotive were among the topics discussed at the recent SPE event.
A visit to its largest PET plant illustrates how this versatile blow molder leverages design skills, a can-do attitude, and a high degree of production flexibility to supply custom products in ever-shorter time windows. A new thrust into automation will help pick up the pace.
3D printing is often referred to as a ‘revolution’ and ‘game-changer,’ but where is it heading?
This brings together 3D printing and 3D scanning, enabling customers to leverage both technologies for 3D file input and output.
Eliminate disposal costs for waste FDM canisters and Polyjet cartridges.
Winners of the Techmer PM sponsored Student Design Awards. There have been several stories lately from a number of companies describing the ways in which its employees are engaging with the younger generation.
Provides print speeds up to 40% faster than its predecessor, with a reported lower cost per part.
UV photopolymer produces short-run cavity inserts.
How do you automate jobs that run only a few hours? That’s only one of the questions challenging a fast-growing, short-run molder.
Colored ASA grades for FDM and several new digital materials for PolyJet are new from Stratasys.
