DESIGN FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING CHALLENGE 2019

januari 9, 2019

Industrial 3D metal printing or additive manufacturing is gaining ground every day. In aerospace fuel nozzles are printed by GE Aviation, Siemens is printing parts for turbines and both dental and medical implants are made additively by several specialised manufacturers. Critical in the success of these innovative applications is the ability of the designer to ‘design for additive manufacturing’ or maximize the possibilities this new production technology has to offer. Apply the features that make this technology unique: design freedom, thin walls, lattice structures, form free channels in the product, integration of parts and functions, customisation and more.

Kaak Group, marktleider op het gebied van industriële bakkerijlijnen, heeft per 1 januari van dit jaar haar 3D metaalprintactiviteiten ondergebracht in een volle dochter, K3D. De verzelfstandiging is het gevolg van de grote ambities die Kaak heeft op het gebied van 3D metaalprinten. K3D zal in de komende twee jaar een netwerk opbouwen van lokale K3D Printing Technology Centers om uitvoering te geven aan haar gedistribueerde fabricage visie. Bij bewezen succes zal een verdere uitrol naar het buitenland volgen. Uniek aan het concept van K3D is dat het ‘shared facilities’ betreffen waar bedrijven toegang krijgen tot zowel de 3D metaalprint-kennis als de machinecapaciteit van K3D. Door de verschillende K3D Printing Technology Centers bovendien te vestigen dichtbij de locatie van een leading partner uit een specifieke eindmarkt wordt ruime ervaring met de toepassingen van deze technologie verzekerd.

Product Removal Module Is a Multitasking Machine Tool Tailored to AM

december 13, 2017

Additive Industries (which recently opened a U.S. office) supplies systems for production-scale metal additive manufacturing. Modules allow for 3D printing metal parts through selective laser melting and heat treating those same parts within a continuous line, as well as manual unloading via a separate operator module kept isolated from the metal powder. At Formnext, the company showed its latest unit for this system, a Product Removal Module that provides for in-line separation of the parts from their build plate and resurfacing of the same plate. The mechanism of these operations is machining, and the module is essentially a machine tool tailored to automated production AM. Read more [source: additivemanufacturingmedia]
