In Automotive, Is Additive Manufacturing an Answer for Die Cast Tooling?
The largest high-pressure die cast tool builder in North America is 3D printing die inserts and water jackets for major automakers. It’s a tough sell, but one company is succeeding — and it’s just getting started.
Building Confidence in AM for Tooling
New potential for tooling applications is reached with custom-designed materials for additive manufacturing.
AM Expo Adds Hands-On Learning Experience
The Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo (AMC) announced two technical tours of major 3D-printing production facilities as part of the education program.
2019 Technology Review: Additive Manufacturing
MoldMaking Technology’s 2019 Technology Review and Sourcing Guide offers some of the latest highlighted products and services from supplier companies from a variety of categories, including additive manufacturing.
Bringing Topology Optimization to Injection Molds
Topology optimization and an integrated software solution help a mold builder produce an injection mold with 50-percent less mass, permitting faster machine motion for 30-percent faster cycle time.
Highly-Automated Tool Shop Achieves Efficient, Precise Medical Device Manufacturing
When a basketball player needs a knee replacement, standard implants simply won’t do. With a total of 18 different additive manufacturing systems, the Aesculap division of medical company B. Braun is the place to go to have custom implants printed to size. However, the highly-automated tool and mold shop has much more to offer when it comes to producing injection molds, complex progressive dies as well as prototypes and fixtures for series production.
World Premieres at Formnext 2018
The Formnext 2018 exhibition set a record in terms of exhibitor numbers, with a total of 632 exhibitors from 32 countries.
2018 Technology Review and Sourcing Guide: Additive Manufacturing
MoldMaking Technology’s annual Technology Review and Sourcing Guide is an accurate, comprehensive, easy-to-read and easy-to-use use guide for researching today’s technology, equipment, products and services. The year’s latest moldmaking product developments within mold engineering/design, build and maintenance/repair are broken down into 10 sections, including additive manufacturing.
Stand-Alone Additive Manufacturing Is a Thing of the Past
Additive manufacturing (AM) is no longer considered a stand-alone technology but is increasingly being integrated in existing manufacturing processes.
Throwback Thursday: Worldwide Review and Analysis of Additive Fabrication
I wonder if Terry Wohlers knew just how accurate he was when he examined what was, in 2007, called “additive fabrication” and provided a pointed prediction of the future of the additive industry?
MMT Visits Linear Mold to See Additive Mfg in Action
Linear Mold & Engineering opened its doors to us to talk about how they’re using additive manufacturingI to grow conformal cooling channels inside mold inserts and to make production parts for the aerospace and medical industries.
Complementing Laser Sintering with EDM
Laser sintering unlocks the potential to “grow” conformal-cooled inserts from the ground up. Wire EDM ensures production proceeds at a pace that keeps up with demand.
The Intersection of Laser Sintering and EDM
For this moldmaker, wire EDM helps streamline production of inserts that are “grown” with cooling lines already inside.
Digital Ed. of MMT's May Additive Mfg. Supplement Ready
This month's edition features stories on how to push additive manufacturing to the next level with a commitment to customer service, education and training, as well as a look at one manufacturer's year-long journey with additive manufacturing.
CMM Increases Moldmaker’s Capabilities and Customer Base
With Linear’s recent expansion and equipment additions, we are becoming a full-service production supplier of aerospace parts using additive manufacturing technology.
"Adding" to Your Tooling Options
Understand the benefits and applications of processes for making tooling through additive manufacturing.
The freedom to tailor a part’s shape to its engineering needs—particularly when the result is a complex organic form—might be the most transformative benefit of additive manufacturing.
Additive and Subtractive Together
At the recent International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, EOS and machine tool maker GF AgieCharmilles demonstrated additive and subtractive processes working together to produce a titanium tibial tray for knee implants.
Merging Manufacturing Technologies at IMTS 2012
A live demonstration of embracing both subtractive and additive manufacturing was one of the highlights for me at IMTS. Machine tool builder GF AgieCharmilles and EOS showcased an innovative start-to-finish manufacturing process chain that creates actual titanium tibial trays for surgical knee implants.
Success with Conformal Cooling Using Direct Metal Laser Sintering
Featured project from Phillips Plastics. The design for the DMLS conformal cooling tool insert incorporated channels that were designed to quickly and evenly cool individual cavities within the piece, which would not have been possible with conventional mold technologies. Expectations were reduced cycle time and higher quality parts.
Conformal Cooling: Another Tool to Build a Better Mold
Moldmakers are just starting to scratch the surface of what can be done with conformal cooling, which involves an additive approach.
