Using 3D Metal Printing to Fight Tradition

Using 3D Metal Printing to Fight Tradition

In the 3D printing industry, tradition ties companies to the technology they have always used, to the best practices defined decades ago and to the design practices tuned for legacy manufacturing processes.

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing has been on the rise for many years. Predominantly led by the adoption in high value applications like aerospace & defence and medical. The majority of printer processes use a powder feedstock. This is mainly for powder bed fusion but material jetting and binder jetting are also gaining traction (each with different material requirements and economics).

Printing Complex Cellulose Based Objects

Printing Complex Cellulose Based Objects

Researchers have set a new world record: they 3D printed complex objects with higher cellulose content than that of any other additively manufactured cellulose-​based parts. To achieve this, they used a clever trick.

New Universal Carrier Ink for 3D Printing

New Universal Carrier Ink for 3D Printing

Researchers have produced a gel from cellulose fibres and biodegradable nanoparticles that liquifies when pressed through the nozzle of a 3D printer, but then quickly returns to its original shape. Their invention paves the way for personalised biomaterial implants.

McDonald's Deep Fryer Oil Turned into High-End 3D Printing Resin

McDonald's Deep Fryer Oil Turned into High-End 3D Printing Resin

Researchers have, for the first time, turned waste cooking oil - from the deep fryers of a local McDonald's - into a high-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin.

Albright Silicone Launches its 3D Printing Silicone Capability

Albright Silicone Launches its 3D Printing Silicone Capability

Albright has added a 3D printing capability and developed a special 3D silicone molding process for relatively low cost rapid turnaround prototyping. Customers that need a small number of parts for initial testing but are not ready for metal tooling can benefit from working with a silicone molder that is able to provide LSR molding with 3D printed tooling.

Groundbreaking Way to Additively Print Gallium Nitride

Groundbreaking Way to Additively Print Gallium Nitride

The rise of additive manufacturing - or as it's more commonly known, 3D printing - has enabled the rapid production of complex parts across many domains. As the techniques have become more refined, the semiconductor industry has taken note. But until recently, no one's been able to form single-crystal materials - the building block of semiconductors - with traditional additive manufacturing processes.
