3DPOD Episode 63: Manufacturing in Space with Douglas Hofmann, Principal Scientist, NASA JPL

In this episode, Max and I fall all over ourselves to ask questions of Douglas Hofmann, Principal Scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). We also listen intently as Doug…

Fabrisonic 3D Prints Bulk Metallic Glasses to Make Wear-Resistant Surfaces

Fabrisonic has always been a bit of an outlier in 3D print land. The company develops Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM), which uses sound waves to join together layers of metal…

German Manufacturers Heraeus AMLOY and TRUMPF Collaborate to 3D Print Industrial Amorphous Parts

Two German companies are collaborating to begin 3D printing industrial amorphous metals—also known as metallic glass and twice as strong as steel—offering greater elasticity and the potential to produce lightweight…

Heraeus Creates Largest 3D Printed Gear Wheel Made from Amorphous Metals

Another historical milestone has been met in 3D printing—a technology known for outdoing itself on a continued basis—with the introduction of the largest 3D printed gear wheel ever fabricated in…

New Study Shows that SLM 3D Printing Has High Potential for Fabricating Metallic Glass Components

Metallic glass, also known as amorphous metal, was first introduced in the early 1960s, and since then, it seems that everyone wants in on the action. The material is valued for…

NC State Researchers Successfully 3D Print Metallic Glass Alloys in Bulk

Amorphous metal, or metallic glass, is a solid metal material with a disordered atomic-scale structure, not dissimilar to conventional glass. The material is not like the glass you see in…

Exmet AB’s Amorphous Metals 3D Printing Technology Receives Investment Boost from AM Ventures, Accelerating Commercialization

It used to be that the only way to produce metallic glass, or amorphous metal, was to rapidly cool it before the solid-state crystalline structure was able to form. This…

Heraeus Group and Exmet Have Developed a 3D Printing Process That Uses Amorphous Metals

Typically, metals are all composed of highly ordered, crystalline structures of atoms. While there are obvious uses and benefits of this type of atomic arrangement, there is a limit to…
