Bringing you up to speed with the week that went by in the world of Additive Manufacturing with the AM Chronicle weekly news update
The round up of last weeks additive manufacturing news includes development of 3D-printed bunkers for Indian Army by Military Engineering Services and start-ups; Imaginarium join hands with Formlabs to became its value-added disturbutor for Indian subcontinent; Intech Additive Solutions collabrates with UIT-Dresden to develop new materials for metal AM using its software AMOptoMet; launch of new additive manufacturing simulation software by Markforged and much more.
Creating waves in the world of Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing is the 6th edition of the AMTECH Expo 2022, India’s only dedicated additive manufacturing tradeshow to be held at the Hitex Exhibition Grounds in Hyderabad, India, from December 2nd to 3rd, 2022.
The Military Engineering Services (MES) and start-ups, including those from IIT-Gandhinagar and IIT-Madras, have developed 3D printed structures for Indian Army of varying sizes and functionalities. The defense establishment has also underwent successful experiments to evaluate its durability against a T-90 firing from 100 meters.
Formlabs and Imaginarium join hands to expand the adoption of additive manufacturing in the greater Indian subcontinent as Imaginarium becames value-added distributor of Formlabs for Greater Indian Subcontinent region.
Intech Additive Solutions Collaborates with Umwelt- und Ingenieurtechnik GmbH Dresden (UIT-Dresden) to develop and optimise new materials for Metal 3D Printing using AMOptoMet – Intech’s Parameter Optimization Software for Metal LPBF Systems
Intech Additive Solutions has collaborated with Umwelt- und Ingenieurtechnik GmbH Dresden (UIT-Dresden), a subsidiary of General Atomics Europe / General Atomics (USA), to develop and optimize new materials for Metal 3D Printing using AMOptoMet Ultimate version 2.0 – Intech’s flagship Parameter Optimization Software for Metal LPBF Systems.
SLM Solutions announced launch of solution that enables the production of high-quality metal parts up to a size of 3.0 x 1.2 x 1.2 Meter (LxWxH).
Markforged announced the release of new Simulation features for its additive manufacturing software the simulation is available as a free trial until April 2023, and the company expects to make the feature accessible through a paid subscription thereafter.
The Air Force Research Laboratory, or AFRL, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 9, 2022, to celebrate the reopening of its recently renovated Additive Manufacturing Laboratory, as well as the installation of a novel 3D-printing system for aerospace-grade material
Engineers at Sandford University have designed a new material for nanoscale 3D printing that is able to absorb twice as much energy as other similarly dense materials and could be used to create better lightweight protective lattices.
AMFG Corp, Austin, Texas, USA, a provider of manufacturing execution system (MES) & workflow automation software for Additive Manufacturing, has secured $8.5 million in funding, led by Intel Capital.
Shell International B.V. and GE Additive unveiled the results of a joint design and engineering project – an additively manufactured oxygen hydrogen micromixer. This complex, non-functional, demonstration part, was printed in nickel alloy 718 on a GE Additive Concept Laser M Line system, installed at Shell’s 3D Printing CoE and Workshop, part of the company’s Energy Transition Campus Amsterdam (ETCA) in the Netherlands.
