See 3D Printing in Action
During amerimold expo 2014 this June 11-12 in Novi, Michigan, exhibitor Linear Mold & Engineering will be offering a Destination Tour to see its 3D printing in action at its DMLS Division.
Linear Mold & Engineering, a full-service engineering company specializing in the design and build of plastic injection molds and components using the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process, will offer a Destination Tour of its facilities to this year’s amerimold attendees.
Editor’s Note: Linear Mold & Engineering is now known as Linear AMS.
Since purchasing its first DMLS machine from EOS GmbH, in 2005, Linear’s 3D printing business unit more than doubled in 2013 over 2012, creating the need for added DMLS capacity. Linear expects its 3D printing business to rise substantially this year. Linear operates a total of seven DMLS/SLM machines.
Moldmakers and OEM engineering teams can see first-hand how DMLS can benefit their mold design and development by create tooling with faster cycle times using conformal cooling channels. DMLS also reduces product development time resulting in faster time-to-market for end-use parts.
Selection criteria and common coating attributes for PVD, CVD and other common coatings.
Prototyping helps evaluate and test a design, clarify production costs, sell a product and secure patents.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
