Ceramics Expo will be held August 30 to September 1 in Cleveland. The free-to-attend event is being held at the Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland. Organizers say the location will enable safety measures for Ceramics Expo visitors, including floorplan changes to accommodate social distancing between the 250 exhibitors.
For many years, 3D printing technology — or additive manufacturing, as it is often called — has been gaining ground against long-established manufacturing processes. In the early days, additive manufacturing was relegated to the realm of prototyping.
VELO3D and Lam Research Corp. announced a joint development agreement that includes collaboration on novel materials and designs in metal additive manufacturing (AM) for the semiconductor industry. Lam Research plans to significantly increase the volume of parts produced by AM over the next five years.
Using computational software and additive manufacturing to design, test and manufacture heat exchangers for electronics cooling demonstrates how heat sinks can be optimized, thereby improving the performance of consumer electronics.
Just like a car’s radiator keeps its engine from overheating, the heat associated with the processing of electricity must be reduced significantly in order for consumer electronic devices like computers, televisions and smartphones to function properly.
Using 3D printing, fans from its air-cooled vehicle seats and in-house engineering capabilities, Ford Motor Co. is getting into the medical supply business — albeit temporarily — to support efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
I’m probably dating myself here, but do you remember the scene from Crocodile Dundee, where Paul Hogan’s character, a croc hunter who travels to New York City following the lure of a lovely lady, and is mugged at knifepoint?
HP and Siemens expanded their strategic alliance to help customers transform their businesses with industrial additive manufacturing (AM). Siemens and HP will incorporate systems and software innovations including overall product lifecycle management (PLM), AM factory optimization, industrial 3D printing and data intelligence, manufacturing execution and performance analytics.
A Southeast Asian aerospace parts manufacturer purchased a dual-purpose electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) and EB welding system. The machine, designed and manufactured by Sciaky Inc., will be customized with special controls to switch from 3D printing to welding.
