Creativity in 3D printing has expanded well beyond additive art and sculptures with 3D Platform enabling artists to unleash their creativity and bring big ideas to life.
3D Platform launched a new line of High Flow Extruders that change the rules of additive manufacturing
Rapid 3D have been appointed the official agents for EOS e-Manufacturing Solutions for the SADC region.
We’ve also been developing a “Design for Additive Manufacturing” (DfAM) workshop to help engineers, product designers and factory managers come to grips with the skills required, when designing for Additive Manufacturing.
The resulting material can withstand ultrahigh temperatures in excess of 1700°C and exhibits strength ten times higher than similar materials.
Previously, The extremely high melting point of many ceramics adds challenges to additive manufacturing as compared with metals and polymers. But now, the invented preceramic monomers are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be pyrolyzed to a ceramic with uniform shrinkage and virtually no porosity by heating.
It shatters boundaries of manufacturing as it meets the most demanding requirements of modern production environments in terms of efficiency, scalability, usability and process monitoring.
This year was no different as the DLP specialist presented its expansive portfolio of machines and materials spanning everything from dental applications to sand printing.
The aim of EOS quality policy is to identify current customer needs and future market demands early on and meet these by means of the appropriate organisational, technological and economic resources.
The strengths of Additive Manufacturing lie in those areas where conventional manufacturing reaches its limitations. It enables a design-driven manufacturing process – where design determines production and not the other way around.
EnvisionTEC’s P4 LED Standard XL will be unveiled at RAPID + TCT, the premier event for 3D manufacturing in North America. The company also will be celebrating its 15th anniversary and showcasing other machine and material innovations in booth 1813.
The competition is aimed at encouraging designers, engineers & artists to use the latest technology, to promote awareness of Additive Manufacturing (AM)and attempts to gauge the country’s capability to design and engineer for AM.
Its industrial strength mechatronics deliver superior performance and reliability, and its SIMO Series actuators and Constant Force™ anti-backlash lead screws and nuts provide a rugged, industrial framework that won’t let you down.
