Week in Review: September 12th to 18th – IMTS and 3Diax

Hi everyone, here we go again with a new edition of our weekly news review.

In the aftermath of last week’s GE annoucement the industry has a bit of a jump in its step. That was helped with news and announcements coming from IMTS 2016: loads of companies were showing off new and improved 3D printers and more. Predictably, much of it was on the Metal side, although Ingersoll and Oak Ridge also announced a very large composite machine. In other news, yours truly at Authentise had something to announce of our very own: the 3Diax Machine Analytics component of the 3Diax platform.

Let’s dig in.

Engineering Breakthrough in Dissolvable Metal AM

Owen Hildreth, Assistant Professor at ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and his team employed DEP – directed energy deposition – that enables the printing of an object using two kinds of metal at the same time in combination, and then selectively dissolving the “sacrificial” material with a simple electrochemical etching technique. To demonstrate their new approach, they printed the stainless steel arch supported by carbon steel.

3Diax Machine Analytics is the first off-the-shelf component of the 3Diax platform. It enables companies to monitor the status of all their additive manufacturing devices simultaneously, regardless of manufacturer. It also displays key statistics such as machine utilization and material usage on a convenient dashboard or Application Programming Interface (API). This gives companies the edge they need to acquire or maintain their lead.
