Siemens has hit a milestone in its use of additive manufacturing, 3D-printing and engine-testing a dry low emission pre-mixer for its SGT-A05 aeroderivative gas turbine, with the results showing a potential for significant reductions in CO emissions.
New research proves advanced materials containing molecules that switch states in response to environmental stimuli can be fabricated using 3D printing. Victor Sans from the Faculty of Engineering at University of Nottingham, explains...
The United Kingdom (UK) will leave the European Union (EU) on Friday 29 March 2019 at midnight. This is exactly two years after it notified the European Council of its intention to withdraw.
As of 30 March 2019, the UK will be a third country. It is now urgent that businesses in the EU start preparing for the UK’s withdrawal, if they have not yet done so.
At the Additive Manufacturing Conference at IMTS 2018, Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw is giving a talk on the next phase of market growth in additive manufacturing (AM).
PEEK polymer pioneer Victrex is preparing newly developed materials for Additive Manufacturing (AM). The first of these is a high strength material for laser sintering (LS) which attains lower refresh rates, resulting in improved recycling for unsintered powder. The second is a filament with better Z-strength than existing PolyArylEtherKetone (PAEK) materials and better printability for filament fusion (FF).
Arkema will open its 3D Printing Center of Excellence, located at its Sartomer Exton, PA facility. In this advanced R&D lab, Sartomer and its partners will further develop cutting-edge 3D printing resins through innovative material research and collaboration. This new center will complete the Arkema’s worldwide R&D network dedicated to the development of advanced material for additive manufacturing.
The megamerger between US gas group Praxair and German rival Linde is at risk of failing after US antitrust authorities demanded further disposals before giving the deal a green light.
Patented multi-metal additive manufacturing system enables rapid, low-cost production of aerospace-quality 3D-printed parts
In recent years, selective powder sintering for 3D printing has taken off as an increasingly affordable solution for manufacturing made-to-order elements of almost any shape or geometry, impacting multiple sectors of industry.
Additive manufacturing may be transforming industries such as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and tooling; but a major challenge persists - how can companies produce additive powders of a robust and repeatable quality?
Renishaw has developed and released InfiniAM Spectral, a process monitoring software that is said to allow additive manufacturing (AM) users a greater understanding of their processes and help manufacturers overcome the barriers to AM in critical applications, process stability and part quality.
Many metals are largely used in applications for the defence industry and some of them are also included in the Critical Raw Materials list.
Topics covered include: strengthening the European internal energy market, facilitating the energy transition, and ensuring secure system operation all rely on adequate well-developed and cost-effective transmission grids in Europe.
Carpenter Technology Corporation announced (2/8/2018) financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2018. For the quarter, the Company reported net income of $42.8 million, or $0.88 earnings per diluted share. Excluding special items, adjusted earnings per diluted share was $0.87 in the quarter.
Spirit AeroSystems [NYSE: SPR] and Norsk Titanium US Inc. (NTi), have reached an agreement to initiate qualification of Spirit’s first additive-manufactured, titanium, structural component for the Boeing 787.
BASF is expanding its cooperation with Materialise, a leading supplier of 3D printing technologies. At the same time, BASF has agreed to invest USD 25 M in the Belgian company, which is headquartered in Leuven.
Following up on their plenary session in June, the recently-created Industry4Europe Advocacy Group has been working actively with its 49 Associations to launch three sub-groups focussing on communication and social media, election monitoring and drafting a one-page Manifesto that will be circulated in all Member States in view of the next EP elections.
