Using Two-Stage T6 Heat Treatment to Tailor the Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Aluminum AlSi10Mg Alloys

Using Two-Stage T6 Heat Treatment to Tailor the Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Aluminum AlSi10Mg Alloys

While many aluminum alloy components are still fabricated using traditional casting technologies, there’s been plenty of research and development into 3D printed aluminum alloys as well. For metallic 3D printing, the selective laser melting (SLM) method is typically used to produce Al alloys; however, AlSi10Mg alloys made with SLM technology must set up different post-printing treatments. This […]

What Medical Device Regulation Might Mean for 3D Printed Patient-Specific Implants

What Medical Device Regulation Might Mean for 3D Printed Patient-Specific Implants

You would be hard pressed to find a sane member of society who would advocate for a removal of all oversight in the field of medicine. However, that doesn’t mean there is common consent regarding the who, what, when, where, why and how of regulation. A parent of a child who could benefit from an […]
