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 […]

NASA seeks commercialization of new nozzle specific metal 3D printing technology

Laser Wire Direct Closeout (LWDC) is a patented method of metal 3D printing developed by engineers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama. Specially created for the additive fabrication of nozzles, the method is competitive in time and price against traditional manufacturing techniques. Now in the process of licensing, NASA is looking to […]

Aurora Labs shares plans for 100x faster large format metal 3D printer

Aurora Labs (ASX:A3D) an Australian stock exchange listed developer of metal 3D printers has teased new plans of a forthcoming large format machine. Aiming to 3D print metal up to a size of 1.5m x 1.5m x 2.5m (L x W x H) at a rate 100 times faster than existing systems, Aurora’s plans are […]

Chemical ghost signatures protect DED 3D printed parts from counterfeitting

IP protection is one concern that could stilt the growth of additive manufacturing for sensitive applications in high value industries such as aerospace, automotive and defence. Protection methods under investigation include embedding quantum dot signatures, microstructural manipulation and advanced encryption of the digital design files. The solution proposed by Dr. Sharon Flank et al. from InfraTrac, is […]

Aurora Labs liefert ersten Metall-3D-Drucker der S-Titanium Serie aus

Das australische Unternehmen Aurora Labs hat den ersten 3D-Drucker seiner S-Titianium Reihe ausgeliefert. Der Hersteller hat erstmals 2014 mit einer Kickstarter Kampagne für Aufsehen gesorgt, über die ein Metall-3D-Drucker für AUD 4.499 beworben wurde. Die Kampagne musste allerdings wegen eines Streitfalls mit Kickstarter bezüglich des geistigen Eigentums zurückgezogen werden. Zu dem Zeitpunkt hatte Aurora Labs […]
