METAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING FINALLY MADE ACCESSIBLE

 M. Pierre-Victor SABATIER

DESKTOPMETAL
Metal additive manufacturing has been buzzing for years because of its impressive application potential. However, it is clear that the solutions proposed so far only met niches needs, with significant constraints.
By combining the proven MIM process (metal injection molding) with the capabilities of 3D printing (FDM, Binder jetting), it is now possible to remove these constraints and make metal additive manufacturing accessible to designers, engineers and production.

PRESENTATION OF AN AIRCRAFT COMPONENT REPAIR USING DIFFERENT ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING AND WELDING TECHNOLOGIES

 M. Jean-Paul COMIN
STYX TECHNOLOGIES
Currently, most new part made by metal additive manufacturing are obtained using a single technology, either LBM, EBM or LMD. Through simulation and manufacturing of a demonstrator from a real part, the company has combined different additive manufacturing (LBM, LMD) and welding technologies (LBW, EBW). The aim is to develop more profitable repair (or adding new features) approach for design and advanced aircraft or tooling components repair.

THE FINISHING TOUCH FOR HIGH-VOLUME AM APPLICATIONS – CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO

 M. Maximilian KRAUS
DYEMANSION
Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to revolutionize the future of manufacturing. As for the production of polymer plastic parts this means not only challenging, but keeping up with the status quo, injection molding. In order to achieve this, AM has to change for the better along its whole value chain and improve part design, part building and part finishing. DyeMansion delivers the last mile already today by providing the finishing touch for high-volume AM applications and is developing new finishing technologies.
