Multimaterial metal 3D printing accomplished by WSU LENS project

A team of researchers at Washington State University have recently published results of a multimaterial metal 3D printing project. Using Optomec Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) technology, the team has succeed in 3D printing components made from two different alloys in a single process. Amit Bandyopadhyay, WSU Professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials […]

U.S. DoE applies LENS additive manufacturing to discover better magnets

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) Critical Materials Institute (CMI) are using metal additive manufacturing in the hunt for a new material with “exceptional magnetic properties.” Using Optomec’s Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) process, the team is capable of sorting through innumerable cerium alloy compositions in search of a cheaper, more abundant alternative to rare-earth neodymium iron […]

Latest AMUG 2018 releases PostProcess, BASF, Optomec

This week, 3D Printing Industry is reporting live from the 2018 Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference in St. Louis, Missouri (appropriately abbreviated as STL). A week-long schedule of presentations and discussions, many companies also take the opportunity to make new product announcements at the show. Today we have a round up of the latest […]

3D printing champions sustainability in Optomec LENS machine repair at RIT

One of the fastest growing areas of application for additive manufacturing is in spare parts and repair. Aerospace giants, i.e. Airbus and Boeing, SIA Engineering Company and smaller units like Ohio’s Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services prove that the technology is invaluable to the aerospace sector. Other areas, including logistics and communications, marine & offshore, and automotive, are also introducing […]

Northwestern’s 3D printer auto generates designs for future Wi-Fi

How can 3D printing give you faster internet? Form-fitting health trackers for sneakers? Or even an invisibility cloak? Scientists in photonics (the study of light) have been working on projects touching these ideas for some time. At the base level, such products rely on the manipulation of light, through waveguides designed to channel/block specific wavelengths. […]
