Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process. Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for metal additive manufacturing. It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print. Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications. This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM, explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.

Ask anyone in business, higher education or the medical community what their top objectives are and they’ll probably say it’s to achieve more, to solve more problems, faster than what’s possible now, while saving money in the process. Ask what’s holding them back and you’ll probably find a diverse variety of obstacles in their day-to-day work processes that hinder them in meeting those goals. Having the right tools to do the job is one crucial element in solving problems and becoming more efficient and productive. Additive manufacturing, widely known as 3D printing, is one of those tools that has helped businesses, educators, health care providers and researchers improve how they design, manufacture and perform research. While no tool is an all-in-one solution, 3D printing is a strong step in that direction, particularly in its most sophisticated forms. 3D printing makes it possible to manufacture things that aren’t feasible with traditional processes like machining or injection moldi

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) provides a fast and accurate method of producing jigs and fixtures. FDM is an additive manufacturing process that builds plastic parts layer-by-layer using data from computer-aided design (CAD) files. By using FDM, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality. Find out how the Oreck Corporation, a well-respected manufacturer of vacuum cleaners and other cleaning appliances, realized immediate savings in cost, production time and inspection time by implementing FDM for its fixtures.

Over the past three decades, 3D printing has developed a reputation as an essential manufacturing process for prototype parts. Create a CAD model of your design, send it to your company’s printer, and a 3D replica will be ready in hours. Yet these parts are often little more than conceptual show-and-tell models, not durable enough for long-term use, and in some cases prone to degradation by sunlight. The winds of manufacturing are beginning to shift, however, and industrial-grade 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is now encroaching on machining, injection molding, and other conventional manufacturing processes. This white paper explores the new and existing technology leaders in this area, and assesses the capabilities of production for each 3D printing process. Download your copy today!

The adage “never stop learning” is alive and well for both the students at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and its Additive Lab Consortium members. The school of 2,900 students, located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee has ties with 47 manufacturing companies, including Kohler, Snap-on Tools, Baxter Medical and Master Lock. The Consortium was born out of necessity 27 years ago when MSOE was faced with a 50 percent shortfall in the funds needed to get an additive lab up-and-running. The school approached industry and opened partnership talks around additive technology. Four founding partners came on board, each contributing one-eighth of the cost of the lab. In turn they were provided with non-competitive, shared access. Currently, consortium members pay yearly dues in return for lab hours and access to additive manufacturing expertise.
