The third Munich Technology Conference: The challenge of AM adoption and the inside track on aviation

Now in its third year, the Munich Technology Conference series has achieved a remarkable status in its short history. It is recognised not only for bringing together the most powerful and influential minds in the international AM community, but for engaging them in open and broad-ranging discussions on the future of the industry.

From atomisation to analysis: How Carpenter Additive is delivering improved material reliability, economics and quality

In this article,  William Herbert, Director Technology and R&D – Carpenter Additive, a division of Carpenter Technology, looks at how the company uses modern, digital solutions for powder management and material traceability, and supports the AM supply chain end-to-end by developing advanced materials, improving process economics and quality, and reducing risk in production applications.

The evolving metal powder marketplace: Total solutions, vertical integrations and start-up innovations

Talk of the industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing is everywhere and key pieces of the AM jigsaw such as standards, quality systems and installed production capacity are falling into place. The nature of the companies which are looking to take advantage of the anticipated feast is, however, surprisingly diverse. In this article, Alex Kingsbury and Dayton Horvarth highlight how long-established metal powder giants are adapting to AM and how agile start-ups are carving out niches in the powder marketplace.

Alloys by Design: The future of materials for Additive Manufacturing

There is no shortage of Additive Manufacturing machines humming away in research laboratories, producing test pieces and exhibits for trade shows, however, relatively few are making components for serial production. In part, this is because the world is still waiting for materials which enable the technology to fulfil its true potential. In this article, Rebecca Gingell and colleagues from OxMet Technologies, Oxford, UK, explain how the company is approaching the design of novel alloys for AM, and reflect on its progress so far.

Trumpf: Overcoming barriers to the adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the aerospace sector

Additive Manufacturing is arguably the ideal production method for numerous aerospace applications, particularly where lightweighting and part consolidation are concerns – yet no other industry takes such a cautious approach to embracing new manufacturing methods and imposes so many hurdles on the path to certification.In this article, Germany’s Trumpf GmbH + Co. KG tracks the production journey of one part for Spain’s Ramem S.A., as well as looking at further cases from the aerospace industry.

From silicone and rubber to steel and ceramic: the weird and wonderful world of wipers

In powder bed Additive Manufacturing processes, the recoater system is responsible for spreading a fine and even layer of powder for each layer of a build. This system typically uses wipers to create the necessary surface, with the variants of wipers used being almost as diverse as the number of AM machines on the market.Olaf Diegel and Terry Wohlers explain why it is not only machine operators, but also designers and engineers, who need to be aware of the weird and wonderful world of wipers.

Managing the industrialisation process: Notes from Euro PM’s seminar on the future of Additive Manufacturing

During the Euro PM2019 Congress and Exhibition in Maastricht, the Netherlands, a number of Special Interest Seminars were held focusing on various aspects of the Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing industries.In one seminar, Dr Uemit Aydin, GKN Additive, and Nicholas Turner, Materials Solutions, looked to the future of Additive Manufacturing and expressed their views on its industrialisation. David Whittaker attended the SIS on behalf of Metal AM magazine and reports on its conclusions.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
