Airbus partition built in pieces for weight savings

The large component was successfully produced within a limited build envelope thanks to connection features designed into the pieces. Advances in powder-bed build size will permit greater efficiency in producing parts such as these. Though consolidating assemblies into one piece is one of the potential benefits of AM, this success with additive went in the […]

Terry Wohlers talks about the evolution of the 3D printing industry

Industry stalwart, Terry Wohlers, Founder and President at Wohlers Associates, talks to TCT Group Editor, Daniel O’Connor following his Formnext powered by TCT conference keynote, about how the additive manufacturing industry has evolved, particularly over the last few years, from a tool for prototyping to a production technology.

Terry talks about how GE’s recent investment in two major AM companies has played a significant role in validating the technology and how the next frontier for the industry is about taking these technologies and applying them to production quantities in the medical, aerospace, automotive and consumer product sectors.

Metal AM for conformal cooling

In injection moulding, the cooling time of a finished product can constitute up to 70%  of the cycle time in series production.
Metal AM gives mould tool designers the freedom to design complex cooling channels that closely follow the component surface, while maximising laminar flow and eliminating dead-spots that might otherwise clog up over time.
Using  Metal AM technologies it’s possible to integrate optimised conformal cooling channels into the mould during the production process. This ensures faster and more even heat dissipation. It reduces thermal stress in the mould and prolongs service life. The plastic product quality and dimensional accuracy of the parts is also increased as well as reducing warpage. In addition, this also allows for a drastic reduction of cycle times.
