NIST Releases Additive Manufacturing Metal Powder Report to Hopefully Improve Manufacturing

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901. It’s now part of the US Department of Commerce, and it’s one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories.

Congress established the agency to bring the US up to snuff in measurement infrastructure with the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals of the time. Now NIST-generated measurements support technologies from the nanoscale to enormous and complex projects like earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and wide-body jetliners.

Purdue Researchers Print Using Liquid Metal — Are Terminator-Style T-1000 Robots on Their Way?

If you were a child of the ’80s then you likely recall watching Terminator 2 in awe at the special effects of the time. I probably watched the movie about 30 times between 1992 and 1996, oftentimes pausing, rewinding, and rewatching the part in which the T-1000 liquid metal robot is blown to pieces, and then slowly reforms itself from a puddle of melted metal.

Aluminum & Steel 3D Printer Filaments On Their Way — Sinterhard Launches Kickstarter Campaign

The Sinterhard team, based in Massachusetts, is a mid-sized group of engineers of nearly every type, from software engineers to electrical engineers. Headed up by Bill Novacs, who holds a multitude of advanced degrees (including engineering), and considers himself a ‘maker,’ this group is on a clear path to transform not only the manufacturing of industrial parts, but more specifically, they are transforming it on the 3D printing level with a new filament: Sinterhard Metal Filled Filament.

Sinterhard Metal Filled Filaments for 3D Printing
by Bill Kovacs

SINTERHARD METAL FILLED 3D Printer Filaments for printing Industrial Stainless Steel and Aluminum parts similar to MIM Processes

We plan to produce ABS and PLA plastic filaments, mixed with either powdered 316 Stainless Steel or Aluminum, for use in existing 3D filament printers.The 3D Printer will replace the Plastic Injection Molding Machine in the Metal Injection Molding [MIM] process, and later with Oxide and non-Oxide ceramic filled filaments in the Ceramic Injection Molding Process [CIM]. The MIM and CIM processes currently produce $1.6 Billion Dollars of intricate small industrial metal and ceramic parts

The Sinterhard Metal Filled Filaments will enable people to print items that are furnace ready to debind and sinter into solid sintered metal objects. In selecting 316 Stainless Steel and Aluminum powders, we are starting with two of the most common metals that are in use making parts with the current industrial MIM process. They have a moderate sinter temperature [316 Stainless Steel ] and a low sinter temperature [Aluminum ] as a starting point. These metals cover a large range in commercial applications and are available in the fine mesh size we need to insure a high quality 3 D Printed part.

Heavy Metal: +Mfg Metal 3D Printer Unveiled at Automate 2015

“Imagine”, this is the word that adorned the face of the +1000K machine when it premiered at Automate 2015 in Chicago last week. The +1000K is a new type of large format metal 3D printer, built to produce massive ideas but in a less expensive, faster, cleaner, safer, and environmentally friendly way. Large-scale metal additive manufacturing is a huge area for growth within the industrial manufacturing world and so many industries stand to benefit from an easier-to-use and more efficient metal 3D printer.

Opportunities for 3D Printing Precious Metals: Jewelry and Other Applications

SmarTech believes that 3D printing of gold, silver, platinum and precious metal alloys will present important opportunities for the 3D printing community in the near future.

– 3D printing has been of growing importance in the jewelry industry for a decade and we are about see 3D printing enter new territory; directly fabricated jewelry, timepiece components, and accessories made from precious metal powder
– We also expect new opportunities for 3D-printed precious metals to emerge in the medical/dental and electronics sectors. For example, 3D printers can be used with additive-appropriate gold alloy powders as a result of increasing awareness of complications developing from use of less-inert gold substitutes
– The budding area of 3D-printed electronics are expected to use silver and gold inks for customized and short run fabrication of antennas and PCBs

This new report identifies the market opportunities for 3D-printed precious metals and provides ten-year forecasts for them in both volume (Kgs) and value ($millions) terms. Breakouts by type of metal and application are also included as are product/market assessments of the leading equipment and service players in this space.

Readers of this report will gain insight into the established market for printed jewelry casts, directly fabricated jewelry and consumer products utilizing precious metal materials, as well as emerging uses for the 3D printing of precious metal powders and compatible precious metal materials. Coverage includes:

Vader Molten Metal 3D Printer

You probably know that high-end industrial 3d printers can print metal objects by using laser or electron beams on fine metallic powder but Vader is something completely different. Vader is aimed at small company or professional workshop environment by implementing proprietary MagnetoJet Printing (MJP) and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) ceramic printhead technologies to reduce the machine cost.

Man 3D Prints Highly Functional Metal Scissors on a $1,500 3D Printer

Earlier this month we reported on a company called Mini Metal Maker, which had launched their second Indiegogo campaign to raise additional funding for their unique and affordable 3D printer. After raising close to $35,000 back in December of 2013, the company wanted to expand their production even further via this new crowdfunding campaign.

3D printing bronze scissors with Mini Metal Maker

I printed this pair of scissors in bronze with the Mini Metal Maker. I designed them in Lightwave 11, sliced with Slic3r and ran my printer on Sprinter firmware. After they were printed, I polished with steel wool, sharpened with a polishing wheel, and tapped with a miniature self-drilling screw. They cut paper & thread, but aren’t so great for cloth or hair.

Physicist Sees Laser Beamlet 3D Metal Printer Transforming Speed & Affordability

With the issue of speed being so prevalent a topic in 3D printing, you can put your money on that being something that changes — and soon. As the honeymoon stage fades with 3D printing, makers and industry innovators are moving into the improvement phase. Obviously, one element all would like to see greatly improve with this technology making such sweeping changes is speed. And while it sounds simple enough, adding greater speed also needs to come with (because yes, we do want it all) affordability and great quality.
