Grants from ‘France 2030’ initiative will drive investment in KeyProd production monitoring solution and MBJ 3D printing activities

KeyProd ‘gives industrial companies greater operational control and increases France’s competitiveness’, says government
JPB’s MBJ 3D printing initiatives also deemed to align with government desire to produce low-carbon aircraft

AddUp, Inc. has joined $1.5M research contract “Development of Manufacturing, Heat Treatment, and Surface Finishing Guidelines to Yield Ready-to-Use IN- 718 Additive Manufacturing Components” through the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program led my REM Surface Engineering (REM).

Components for satellites and spacecraft are nowadays transported into space ineffectively transported into space by launch vehicles. A research team Munich University of Applied Sciences (HM) has, for the first time, used a 3D printer in a research rocket to a research rocket to print a structure in open space. The results are promising.

The Denver-based Contract Manufacturer Will Receive the First Sapphire Printer Calibrated for Haynes® 214®, a Nickel-based Superalloy Utilized in High-temperature Environments for Oxidation Resistance, and Another One Calibrated for Inconel® 718

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division and Stratasys, a leader in polymer 3D printing solutions, have applied Hexagon’s simulation technology to capture the behaviour of Stratasys’ high-performance, ultra-lightweight Antero™ reinforced polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) materials and its additive manufacturing processes. These rigorously validated simulations offer Stratasys customers unique insight so they can lightweight components and introduce new sustainable aircraft and spacecraft faster.

GE Aerospace Advanced Technology Munich-led European consortium unveils one of the largest-ever metal 3D-printed aerospace parts and demonstrates significant cost, weight and time savings.

One-meter-in-diameter part manufactured in nickel alloy 718 on a GE Additive system is one of largest aerospace parts additively manufactured using the Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) process.
Shift from conventional casting to AM reduces cost and weight by 30%.
Consolidation combines over 150 parts into one.
Lead time was reduced from more than nine months to two and a half months.
