This agreement is an important step toward fully unlocking the value of powder bed
titanium additive manufacturing for the aerospace industry," said Leo Christodoulou, Boeing chief technologist.
Today, the processes offered on the platform include: Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Material Jetting, Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF), metal Powder Bed
Fusion (PBF), and laser cut and waterjet cut metal parts.
In powder bed
fusion via laser melting, layers of powdered metal are selectively melted by a laser or electron beam.
These agreements draw on Arconic's cutting-edge 3D printing technology capabilities, including laser powder bed
and electron beam processes.
binding: The part must be excavated from a bed of powder, fully cleaned off, sanded (if smoothness is desired) and coated with a material such as cyanoacrylate (CA).
The new solution leverages proven Materialise technology to enable NX computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software to accurately and completely prepare CAD models for powder bed
fusion and material jetting 3D printing processes.
Additive manufacturing and, more specifically, metal powder bed
fusion technologies have developed rapidly in recent years, and Stryker continues to invest in research and development of the software and hardware that support these technologies, as well as the expansion of production capabilities and product applications.
3, 201 7), "Method for Stabilizing a Powder Bed
by Means of Vacuum for Additive Manufacturing, "Jens Guenster, Andrea Zocca, Cynthia Morais Gomes and Thomas Muehler (Bundesministerium fuer Wirtschaft und Technologie, Berlin, Germany).
High-temperature polymers are printed using high-end extrusion technologies and powder bed
fusion technologies, known by the branded name Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
More expensive and dynamic, powder bed
and inkjet head 3-D printing creates models from digital and orthophotographic data, Blattman said.
Laser Based Powder Bed
Fusion, a specific application of additive manufacturing, has shown promise to replace traditionally fabricated components, including castings and wrought products (and multiple-piece assemblies thereof).
Northwestern Engineering's new method completely bypassed the powder bed
and energy beam approach as well as uncouples the two-step process of printing the structure and fusing its layers.
