Additive manufacturing with liquid materials

The use of additive manufacturing processes is increasing within industrial applications, as they bring some significant customer benefits compared to conventional processes. Additive manufacturing is based upon the layered structure of a component. The production time therefore depends on the volume to be applied to the component. The geometric shape of the individual layers has Read more about Additive manufacturing with liquid materials[…]

The future of 3D metal printing

At the end of 2016, the county commissioner and the mayor participated in the ground-breaking ceremony for the new metal laser melting centre in Georgensgmünd. A little over one year later, the hall was occupied. Since then, 3D-printed precision components have been manufactured according to new standards. The centre meets all requirements of a modern Read more about The future of 3D metal printing[…]

G-Code for 3D Printing: What does it really mean for the print success?

G-Code for 3D printing: In order to build any object using a 3D printer, a plan is needed. The plan provides a critical guide to a successful print job. Also the plan directly influences the quality of the 3D printed object. It is therefore highly essential that the plan, which is developed for the print Read more about G-Code for 3D Printing: What does it really mean for the print success?[…]
