Watch: Argonne infrared imaging of the powder bed captured at 100,000 fps

Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, has ramped up its additive manufacturing research with the addition of an infrared camera. Capable of capturing thermal signatures of melted particles at 100,000 frames per second (fps), the new addition is doubling down the lab’s efforts to enhance the reproducibility of powder bed fusion (PBF) processes. Particle analysis At Argonne, […]

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 […]

3D printing replicates the silent flight of owls for next gen aircraft

Silent air vehicles for transport and defense have been identified as an area of national need in the U.S. in a bid to cut noise pollution and enhance military intelligence. In the wild, owls are perhaps one of the best examples of natural stealth and aerial agility, giving researchers a promising area for potential development. […]

Forschungprojekt untersucht Entstehung von Strukturmängeln bei 3D-Druck mit Metall

Ein Forschungsprojekt des Argonne National Laboratory in den USA hat sich der Untersuchung von Strukturdefekten in 3D-gedruckten Metallteilen gewidmet. Spezialaufnahmen des 3D-Druck-Prozesses mit 50.000 Bildern pro Sekunde lieferten dabei neue Erkenntnisse.  Die 3D-Drucktechnologie hat das Potential das Design und die Fertigung von Metallbauteilen zu revolutionieren, jedoch stehen die Verfahren noch immer Herausforderungen gegenüber, die es […]
