May 28: Serial AM for Turbomachinery with EOS

EOS is holding a webinar on Tuesday, May 28th, about “Serial Additive Manufacturing for Turbomachinery.” Indispensable for energy generation, turbomachinery is made up of resilient, high-performance parts with complex designs that need to hold up at temperatures beyond the melting point. So as these components evolve, it’s even more necessary to adopt advanced manufacturing processes, like direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) by EOS. Webinar attendees will hear from EOS experts and partners about serial AM can be a real reality for turbomachinery, and the challenges and solutions of implementing it.

3D metal printing (DMLS) offers the right technological foundations for implementing an optimized cooling strategy and meeting the challenges for 100% hydrogen fueled turbines. Parts can be designed and improved, enabling the integration of highly efficient in-wall cooling systems.  Innovative repair processes reduce costs and increase the sustainability of turbomachinery parts by building at worn areas directly on the original part.”

You can register for the webinar here. There are two time slots available: 3 am EST (9 am CEST) and 10 am EST (4 pm CEST).

May 29 – 30: Black Buffalo 3D Live House Printing

If you’ve ever wanted to see what this additive construction thing was all about, you may have your chance this week! Black Buffalo 3D and Boxer Property will be in the Southside Community of Fort Worth, Texas from 10 am – 1 pm CDT on May 29th and 30th to for live 3D printing of what they’re calling “the world’s first LoMa Home.” Attendees can speak with experts onsite and learn about the benefits of the company’s ICC-ES approved structural 3D printed walls, and actually witness the ICC-ES AC509 approved home being printed. However, as all Black Buffalo 3D personnel will be at the build answering questions, there are no plans to live stream the event, so you need to physically be there to see it.

“The emergence of new construction technologies can help your company build more, with less labor. It’s also attracting a new generation of construction workers that are excited 3D printing homes and buildings. If you are involved in traditional construction of homes, buildings, or developments this is a great way to see and learn the process during a permitted build,” Peter Cooperman, Chief Marketing Officer for Black Buffalo 3D, wrote in an email.
