Restoring Industrial Components with Directed Energy Deposition Saves Time and Costs

Restoring Industrial Components with Directed Energy Deposition Saves Time and Costs

Welding on a micron level to restore and repair parts at a fast pace and cost effective is the core of Directed Energy Deposition or DED, also called laser engineered net shaping or LENS (Optomec’s version of DED). It’s an additive manufacturing process in which focused thermal energy is used to fuse materials by melting […]

Will GEFERTEC’s 3DMP Metal 3D Printing Process Make 3D Printing Large Metal Structures Affordable?

Will GEFERTEC’s 3DMP Metal 3D Printing Process Make 3D Printing Large Metal Structures Affordable?

German company GEFERTEC’s 3DMP process is a very interesting metal 3D printing technology. We profiled the company and its wire fed 3D printing technology a few months ago. Rather than focus on inexpensive parts (inkjet) or fine mechanical small parts (DMLS, SLM) their wire arc based technology is focused on large 3D printed metal parts. How […]

Research Team Uses Synchrotron Beamline to See Inside Laser 3D Printing Process

While we know that 3D printing gives us the ability to create complex shapes and geometries that would be impossible to achieve with conventional forms of manufacturing, less frequently discussed is the fact that these final objects have different properties than those created using traditional fabrication, which can cause problems in the long run. This […]
