Industrial Challenges of Polymer AM Multicomponent Part Production at P&G Devices

The production of three-dimensionally constructed objects with additive manufacturing processes, often referred as 3D printing, is already used in many business areas today. Often there is a talk of a paradigm shift in manufacturing through additive manufacturing of parts and components.

The VDI Contribution to International AM Standards

VDI published the first AM standard worldwide in 2009. Today, the VDI 3405 series of AM standards cover, for example, material characterization, part design and user safety of different process categories for metal and polymer parts. VDI stands for the Association of German Engineers.

The Additive Manufacturing Factory of the Future

Additive manufacturing has the potential to revolutionize industrial processes and industries in a disruptive manner. In the past, additive processes mainly have been used for research, development, and prototyping. Lately, a trend towards final products in small and middle lot sizes has been observed.

Qualification of Additive Components for Aerospace Industry

Users of AM often struggle with the question of how to qualify an additive manufactured a component, specifically the machine, process, and material. Qualification of a single component in some cases can take over five years and carry a significant NRE cost.

Metal AM Total Cost of Ownership and Risk Mitigation through Operational Excellence

With disruptive technologies comes a need to redefine internal processes and business models to maximize value for the organization. Metal AM is no different in this regard and requires the creation of unique processes and novel business strategies for executing on manufacturing projects relative to traditional manufacturing. If not done properly, the profitability of the entire business is at risk.

All Quality Control – Build Job Monitoring with Near-Net-Shape Specimens

Manufacturing of complex, individualized parts with reasonable costs is a primary advantage of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. Direct metal laser melting (DMLM) is of great interest regarding the fabrication of metallic components.

Evaluation of a Low-Cost Material Extrusion Printer for Investment Casting Applications

3D printed patterns have been used to create prototype investment castings for more than 245 years now and have become the preferred method of creating prototype castings. Not only do printed patterns save time and money in the development of investment castings, they reduce the risk of cost overruns and delays in market introduction of the product incorporating that casting.

NiTa Alloy Sputtering Target Built by Selected Laser Melting for Hard Disc Applications

The current hard disc storage drive has a layer of amorphous nickel-tantalum (NiTa) thin film between the magnetic soft underlayer and the disc substrate. The semiconductor industry applies an amorphous NiTa thin film through sputtering deposition process of a crystalline NiTa alloy target.

Sensor Integration in Plastic and Metal AM Parts Based on Two Industrial Use Cases

Additive manufacturing offers entirely new possibilities for the production of components with respect to their design and complexity. The manufacturing process in layers enables accessibility and the possibility for manipulation and modification to each section of the part’s geometry. Hence, the integration of sensors into the component during its manufacturing process is feasible.

Analyzing AM's Ultrasound Emission to Monitor Manufacturing Stability

With the transition of additive manufacturing from rapid prototyping to volume production, there is an increasing need to detect defects directly during the process. Listening to ultrasound emissions from the process zone has proven to be a powerful approach for in-line monitoring, complementary to camera-based methods or pyrometry.

Usage of Service Robotics in Additive Manufacturing

This presentation will examine the flexible handling of printed objects and will specifically look at the unloading process of a 3D printed object from the printer’s build plate. To design of functioning universal gripper fingers, 150.000 models, will be analyzed in order to calculate an appropriate range of dimensions.

Processability Study and Parametric Optimization of 100Cr6 Steel Produced by Laser Powder Bed Fusion

The 100Cr6 is through-hardening high carbon steel mainly used for ball bearing because of its high hardness and wear resistance. This steel contains 1wt.% carbon and is therefore known as non-weldable, or at least having poor weldability.

Scalable Machine Concept for Laser Powder Bed Fusion

The successful expansion of additive manufacturing in series production is contingent on the scalability of the build volume and the productivity of machine systems. In particular, this applies to laser powder bed fusion (LPBF).

Experiencing 3D: Integrating New Technologies in Education

The Landesmedienzentrum (LMZ) Baden-Württemberg is a media center in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg that offers technology, advanced media, and technical support to teachers at schools, youth workers and adult education institutions. Its goal is to provide comprehensive resources that will empower these teachers and institutions to strengthen their students' education with and in new digital media technology.
