Fraunhofer stellt evolutionären TwoCure Resin 3D-Drucker vor

Fraunhofer TwoCure 300x199 - Fraunhofer stellt evolutionären TwoCure Resin 3D-Drucker vor

Das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT hat das „TwoCure“-Verfahren zu einer industriereifen Maschinentechnik entwickelt. Mit Hilfe des Verfahrens gibt es eine automatisierte Möglichkeit um beim Resin 3D-Druck Stützstrukturen zu erzeugen. 3D-Druck mit Resin fordert Stützstrukturen (Supports) – so war es zumindest bisher. Filigrane Bauteile mussten gestützt werden, damit sie überhaupt gedruckt werden konnten. Das jedoch war [...]

Fraunhofer’s TwoCure technology realized in industry-ready 3D printer

TwoCure, an innovative SLA-based 3D printing method created at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Germany, has been developed into a prototype additive manufacturing system. First presented by the institute and its partner German prototyping specialist Rapid Shape GmbH, TwoCure technology seeks to eliminate challenges associated with post processing. Support-free 3D printing  Like […]

Fraunhofer ILT to present new low-distortion LPBF 3D printing at formnext 2018

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT based in Aachen, Germany, has developed a new laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) based 3D printing method that reduces a component’s residual stresses and distortion. In a proof of concept test, Fraunhofer ILT scientists have 3D printed a component made from superalloy Inconel 718 that reportedly “demonstrated significantly reduced […]

High speed metal 3D printing earns award for Fraunhofer ILT

Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) and RWTH Aachen University have won an award for development of Extreme High-Speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA). In place since 2000, the Berthold Leibinger Innovationspreis is one of the most prestigious awards in laser technology, and is presented every two years by a panel of experts from science and industry. Stressing […]

Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence starts development on new generation of USP lasers

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization who recently developed a new hybrid 3D printing method, is currently developing a range of ultrashort pulse (USP) lasers, used within 3D printing processes such as SLA. This venture is part of the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence, which includes engineers and materials scientists together with the Fraunhofer Institutes for […]

Fraunhofer IPA invents hybrid 3D printing injection molding technique

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (Fraunhofer IPA) have developed a new hybrid 3D printing method. Combining the advantages of 3D printing and injection molding, the so-termed Additive Freeform Casting (AFFC) saves time and encourages the use of new material combinations. Multiple versions in no time In AFFC, common FFF 3D printing […]

Fraunhofer ILT optimiert Pulvergasstrahl für das Laserauftragschweißen

laserauftragschweissen 300x200 - Fraunhofer ILT optimiert Pulvergasstrahl für das Laserauftragschweißen

Das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik (ILT) hat ein System für Anlagen zum Laserauftragschweißen entwickelt, das zur Prüfung, Qualifizierung und Justage des fokussierten Pulvergasstrahls eingesetzt werden kann. Zudem kann der Prozess dank eingebauter Kamera mit integrierter Beleuchtung visualisiert und überwacht werden. Das additive Verfahren des Laserauftragschweißens kommt beispielsweise zur Reparatur von Werkzeugen oder bei dem Auftragen von […]

3D Printing Industry review of the year November 2017

In November, the word on everyone’s lips was formnext. A number of companies leaked information about upcoming releases/demos, and 3D Printing Industry reporters were out in force at Frankfurt’s largest 3D printing fair to date, with 4 of the team spending the week at the show. To start Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice president of formnext […]

3D Printing Industry Review of the year August 2017

It was earnings season in the 3D printing industry and we covered the financials of ExOne, SLM Solutions, Stratasys, Nano Dimension and Sigma Labs. It will be interesting to see how the projections made halfway through 2017 weigh up to end of year reports due for release in January. Small steps, big impact Perhaps the […]
