Metal AM Summer 2017: On demand manufacturing with Linear, CT for quality control, Desktop Metal, Markforged and more


The Summer 2017 issue of Metal Additive Manufacturing magazine is out now. In addition to seven in-depth technical articles, the 128-page magazine features over 65 pages of industry news.

In 2016, SAP and UPS announced their collaboration to develop a supply chain management solution that spans the complete AM process chain, from component evaluation and design to delivery of the final product. US-based AM service provider Linear AMS, a Moog company, is one of several manufacturers involved in the venture. For this issue of Metal AM, Linear’s Bruce Colter and Moog’s George Small review the drivers behind on-demand manufacturing and present recent developments in materials, applications and component verification.

This issue also features a review of X-ray Computed Tomography (micro CT) for the inspection and quality control of metal AM parts. Micro CT has great potential for quality control in AM due its unique capability for the non-destructive inspection of complex internal structures and geometries. In a fully-illustrated, ten-page report, Andrew Ramsey and Herminso Villarraga of Nikon Metrology Inc. present their findings on the technology’s benefits and applications.

Also featured in the magazine are two company profiles from Terry Wohlers, visiting Desktop Metal and Markforged to report on the companies’ new developments and approaches to AM processes, a report on the potential of AM in the tyre industry from Tire Technology Expo 2017, a look at some of the developments on display at Rapid + TCT 2017 and Metal AM magazine’s final report from World PM2016.

The digital edition of Metal AM is available to read and download for free online via the company website, or in print with the purchase of a year’s magazine subscription. All back issues of the magazine are also available to download for free via the archive.
