UrbanAlps Wins 2019 purmundus challenge at formnext for 3D Printed Stealth Key

With all the announcements about new systems, partnerships, and materials coming out of last week’s formnext 2019, let’s not forget about those companies that came home from the event with…

Singapore: Researchers Study Effects of Spatter in Large-Scale SLM Printing

Ahmad Anwar, thesis student at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, explores undesired byproducts of 3D printing in ‘Large scale selective laser melting : study of the effects and removal of…

Design Guidelines for Direct Metal Laser Sintering, Selective Laser Melting, Laser Powder Bed Fusion

Perchance I came across an excellent document on the design guidelines for  Direct Metal Laser Sintering, also called DMLS, Selective Laser Melting, SLM, Laser Powder Bed Fusion and referred to…

Rosswag Engineering Wins EPMA Award for Hybrid Forging-3D Printing Technology Combining Open Die Forging and DMLS

Recently the EPMA 2018 Powder Metallurgy Component Awards took place, honoring outstanding contributors to the field of powder metallurgy. Awards were given in four categories: Additive Manufacturing Hot Isostatic Pressing…

Effect of Build Orientation on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of SLM 3D Printed Titanium

One of the challenges of 3D printing is the ability to get repeatable results, like good mechanical properties and identical microstructure, using different build orientations. A lot of research has…

Comparing 3D Printed Parts to Parts Produced by High Pressure Die Casting

Additive manufacturing has, in many studies, been compared with traditional manufacturing techniques like, for example, injection molding. In a study entitled “The Use of Selective Laser Melting to Increase the…

Building Conformal Cooling Channels Using 3D Printing To Reduce Warpage and Cooling Time

In injection molding, parts are cooled by building channels throughout them. Those channels are typically straight lines, which can result in uneven cooling. Much more even, efficient cooling can be…
