SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Additive Manufacturing
Working on sister publication Additive Manufacturing has shown me how important it is to stay on top of technology that may have a great impact on the way mold manufacturers can compete today. And, that includes additive manufacturing. Check out this brief product slideshow.
Additive Manufacturing magazine is focused on covering industrial applications of 3D printing technology. The magazine explores ways manufacturers are using this technology to make tooling, molds, functional prototypes and end-use production parts. Some companies are succeeding with AM today, others expect it to be among the ways they make parts in the future and still others are just trying to figure it all out.
To decide where AM falls within your company's plans, it is important to stay on top of the current technologies, processes and services on the market today. Here is a quick slideshow highlighting a few of the latest product innovations in additive manufacturing.
If you are looking for more on AM, Additive Manufacturing’s print publication mails quarterly. Check out our archive of back issues. A digital newsletter is sent twice per month. You can subscribe to both the magazine and e-newsletter. We have also filmed an extensive catalog of video interviews and hosted several webinars.
New content is added to this website daily. See the latest coverage we’ve given to topics, including: Metal AM, Polymer AM, Design for additive, Hybrid manufacturing, Aerospace applications, Automotive applications, Medical applications, Moldmaking, Tooling and Production.
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.
Both copper and graphite provide approximately the same end result, so it is important for a shop to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each material in order to discover what would work best in their shopfloor environment.
