Researchers at Cranfield University have unveiled what they believe could be the biggest metal 3D printed part ever made in a single piece, using Cranfield’s Wire + Arc Additive Manufacture (WAAM) process.
As 3D printing continues to make inroads from product design right through to the manufacturing floor, Dr Phil Reeves offers an insight into where the technology is making the biggest impact in the next industrial revolution.
Renishaw is contributing its additive manufacturing expertise to a new £17.7m project to develop an innovative way of designing and manufacturing aircraft wings, which will encourage a “right first time approach” and reduce development time.
Although diverse 3D printing projects continue to capture the selective gaze of mainstream media, Andy Middleton, president – EMEA at Stratasys, lifts the lid on where the technology is making a more important and widespread impact.
Rize has made huge leaps in the development of 3D printing technology with the Boston-based startup creating a new 3D printer that doesn’t require any post processing of the object after it is printed.
The world doesn’t stand still. So, it’s important for manufacturers to keep abreast of emerging manufacturing technology trends—both in terms of IT, as well as core manufacturing technologies. What are the key manufacturing takeaways from Gartner’s top technology trends? Andy Gough, general manager at Datawright discusses.
