    3D printing is moving from prototyping to heralding a new era in customized production. This was the message last month at K Fair in Germany.   While it may have been over-hyped as a potential consumer product, 3D printing—better known in industry as additive manufacturing—was all the rage at Düsseldorf’s K Fair 2016....

    A few years ago, says Tim Shinbara, vice president of technology at the Association for Manufacturing Technology, AM was no more than an attraction in the Emerging Technology Center at IMTS. But it made its way to the main show floor.   At the present time, AM/3-D printing is marginal for most industrial applications,...

    Showcased at IMTS, the AMIE (Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy) project from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory demonstrated how AM can be used to create a symbiotic relationship between energy and the way humans live. The modular house is a single room that incorporates inexpensive...

    Using the MagnetoJet printing technology to convert solid metal wire to precise molten metal droplets, the Mk 1 is the first 3D printer that uses liquid metal. Can it change the 3D printing industry?   What if a 3D printer could produce parts and components from liquid metal? That’s exactly what is promised by the Mk 1...

    We know 3D printing. We are just starting to appreciate the future benefits of 4D printing. Now, engineers at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs are already talking about 5D printing. This new additive manufacturing method would print from 5 different axes, reinforcing parts in areas where strength is needed. 3D...

    Airbus announced a patent application for a large-scale additive manufacturing process that could make it possible to 3D print complete airplanes, from the fuselage to the wings and the doors using technologies similar to selective laser sintering. The procedure involves melting together different materials (powdered...

    Visitors to this year’s Hannover Messe learned how 3D products could be personalized before printing through a 3D customizing cloud engine. Germany-based trinckle 3D demonstrated its web-based software system that allows businesses to create and offer customizable products for both consumer and industry use. Heralded...

    German company Keyence won the i-NOVO Tech Award 2016 at Hannover Messe for its Agilista-3000 Series high-resolution, 3D inkjet technology printer. Sven Friedrich, Senior Area Sales Manager 3D-Printer, talked to Directindustry e-magazine about its ease of use and unique features.   DirectIndustry e-magazine: What are...
