Titomic enters marine additive manufacturing MoU with Fincantieri Australia

Fincantieri Australia, a localized branch of international shipbuilding company Fincantieri has signed a 12-month Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with industrial metal additive manufacturing company Titomic. Within this new MoU, Titomic will asses the potential of its Titomic Kinetic Fusion metal 3D printing process applied to Fincantieri’s existing manufacturing facilities. “This agreement with Fincantieri marks a significant milestone […]

Senvol machine learning and UVA partnership boosts Navy’s additive drive

In recent years the U.S. Navy has demonstrated its commitment to promoting 3D printing throughout its ranks. 3D printers have been introduced to sea and air maintenance units across the country, and R&D efforts have resulted in Marines projects such as the expeditionary fabrication laboratory (X-FAB), and combat zone drones. Now, the U.S. Navy’s Office of […]

Niederlands Royal Navy verwendet Artec 3D-Scanner für Reverse Engineering

Seit Mai verwendet ein Unternehmen der Royal Navy der Niederlande einen Artec 3D-Scanner um defekte Objekte zu scannen und Ersatzteile zu erzeugen. Dafür kamen Der Eva und der Space Spider 3D-Scanner von Artec zum Einsatz. Das Problem bei der Herstellung von Ersatzteilen ist, dass von komplexen Objekten oftmals keine CAD-Zeichnungen existieren. Ohne derartige Zeichnungen ist […]

Netherlands Royal Navy using Artec 3D scanners for reverse engineering

Since May, Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine (MKM), the material and asset maintenance company of the Netherlands Royal Navy, has been using Artec 3D scanners to scan a range of the Netherlands’ naval craft and reverse engineer the complex parts within them. The company made use of Artec’s structured light “Eva” and “Space Spider” scanners for the […]

Marines evaluate mobile Fab Lab to expedite repair and supply

The U.S. Marine Corps is evaluating the utility of an expeditionary fabrication laboratory (X-FAB) for on-demand crisis response. A self-contained fab lab, the 20 x 20 foot unit is stocked with four 3D printers, CAD software and a 3D scanner. It can be deployed with battalion-level Marine maintenance units, servicing support ground equipment including motor […]

U.S. Navy’s 3D printed CICADA drone is ready to drop

Equipped with a 3D printed fuselage, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s (NRL) CICADA drone is ready for a commercial partner to take the technology to the next level. Essentially a paper plane made from a circuit board, the CICADA is configurable to any end-use, and is keeping Navy hardware expenditure down to a minimum. A […]

Oak Ridge release details of the U.S. military’s first 3D-printed submarine

In a partnership with the Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has made the military’s first 3D printed submarine hull.  At 30 feet long, the hull is the Navy’s largest 3D printed asset. It has been made to demonstrate the ability to meet on demand vehicle production as a response to special operations missions. […]
