How to leapfrog 3D Printing in emerging Economies

3D fromWaste believes that 3D printing will mature in emerging economies. Broken distribution lines, a lack of local production facilities and abundant (cheap) plastic make emerging markets the perfect breeding ground to leapfrog 3D print developments. From a social perspective, 3D printing holds the promise to significantly reduce the dependence on import, reduce transport problems in larger cities, such as Dar es Salaam and Nairobi, and improve the livelihood of millions of waste pickers by adding real value to their plastic waste. To make this opportunity a reality, 3D fromWaste set up local production of high-quality filaments from plastic waste. Additionally, they created 3D printers from e-waste and brought 3D printed products to commercial markets in urban slums.

Hermle MPA Technology – Entering new Dimensions in Additive Manufacturing

Hermle MPA technology is a versatile additive manufacturing technology based on a thermal spray process for metal powders. Material build-up rates larger than 200 cm³ per hour predestines the technology for massive and large-volume parts. The integration of the MPA unit into a 5 axes machining center allows for material build-up even on freeform surfaces. As a consequence, semi-finished parts can be extended by additively manufactured elements in a very flexible way. We will present application examples showing conformal cooling, parts combining different materials like steel with copper and even components with embedded heating.

Additive Manufacturing of High-Performance Ceramics and Ceramic Casting Cores

This presentation shows a novel AM-approach, which is capable of producing strong, dense and accurate ceramic parts, namely the Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM). It is a slurry-based process, where a photocurable monomer system is mixed with ceramic powder and hardened through mask exposure to give the green body, which is afterwards debinded and sintered. This makes the LCM-process an innovative and capable production method, especially for complex shaped structures, customized parts or small scale series for the production of ceramic cores of outstanding quality.

Additive Manufacturing in Industry 4.0 and Factories of the Future: Unlocking the full Potential

Advanced manufacturing technologies like additive manufacturing need to be integrated into holistic production systems to utilise their full potential. 'Factories of the Future' (Europe), 'Industry 4.0' (Germany) and similar concepts describe visions of how productions systems need to be evolved in the future. While significant issues still need to be investigated for the AM technology itself, it is essential to understand implications from a wider context. Understanding the potential allows one to demonstrate and evaluate future uptakes already. Using the RepAIR project as an example – i.e., the integration of AM in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) process chains – the presentation will present and discuss how far AM is specific and carries outstanding potentials with regard to human-machine cooperation, digitisation, virtualisation and decentral process control.

AM Factory of Tomorrow – 3D Metal Printing on its way to Production

Additive manufacturing arrives more and more in production; this causes numerous challenges for manufacturers. For the optimal integration of the AM-machines in the production environment the currently existing stand-alone machine concept has become revolutionized. In future, machines will be modularly combinable to generate an efficient footprint and thus to optimize the use of the production environment. Build process and build job preparation & dismantling will be separated physically to ensure a maximum utilization of the machine in the build process and to minimize machine downtime. Additionally, due to the multiplication of work steps arising from production, the automation of many process steps is required to keep production processes manageable.

Send & Produce – What does Industry 4.0 need?

General terms like Industry 4.0 and digitization generate great expectations. On the one hand, these terms stand for innovation, on the other they provide impetus for more growth and employment. Functional plug & play solutions of machines and components or already available information services give a foretaste of further developments in seamless industrial networking. Often this is accompanied by increased demands for simplicity, reliability and responsiveness. Industrial machinery and equipment must therefore meet the same demands. Additive manufacturing processes are closely linked to Industry 4.0 and digitization. Ultra short process chains, lot size 1 to the cost of mass production and replacement of physical transport by the simple transfer of virtual blueprints to local production cells, are only three of such points of contact. Today it is of paramount interest that additive manufacturing provides impressive designs and the embodiment of multifunctional parts with an increasing variety of materials. This introspectiveness obscures the requirements of the market, which is faced with the rapid progress of digitization. What remains to be done to ensure a smooth - autonomous - application of additive manufacturing in industry?

High Power Selective Laser Melting for Ti-6Al-4V

In order to pave the way for series production of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) parts, the production rate (molten material per time unit) has to be increased. In the present work, a high power laser (1000 W) was used for manufacturing of Ti-6Al-4V based on the skin-core strategy. A processing parameter window with a density of > 99,5% is identified, manufacturing defects (porosity and lack of fusion) are investigated and their effect on relative material density is discussed. The results show that high power SLM can fabricate fully dense Ti-6Al-4V parts with significantly higher production rate in comparison to conventional SLM.

Additive Manufacturing, a Key for future Production

Additive manufacturing represents an innovative leap forward in production engineering. At Hannover Messe 2015, visitors could experience how the individual, flexible, and cost-efficient manufacturing of parts with highly complex structures directly from 3D CAD data is becoming “industrialized.” During the fair Siemens presented solutions for the various additive manufacturing processes throughout the entire value chain. In particular, Siemens unique, extensive range of consistent, end-to-end software tools is playing a key role in ensuring that it will be possible to use additive manufacturing in the future in standardized mass production. The entire additive manufacturing process including material qualification and product design with NX, workpiece construction and optimization, and finally machining in a machine controlled with SINUMERIK CNC, SIMATIC, or SIMOTION is covered. Multiple workpieces manufactured in additive manufacturing processes and made of different materials for industrial use illustrated the kinds of geometries that can already be produced today with generative production methods. Burner nozzles and turbine blades, for example, increase efficiency and reduce resource consumption in gas turbine power plants, while spare parts manufactured on demand boost efficiency and speed up spare parts procurement when maintaining trains.The presentation will cover these topics.

Production Integrated Marking for Traceability of AM parts

As a part of the holistic approach for industrialization of AM this presentation focuses on production integrated marking for traceability of additively manufactured parts. Traceability is one major requirement for a broad application of AM even in industries that are not focusing on product with critical functionality. Markings can be understood as a kind of individualization of parts. As individualization does not increase production costs and the effort for integration of markings can be minimized by software in particular for high batch production, product marking should be an obligatory process step.

New metallic Materials realized by Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a promising technique for numerous high-performance applications. Many standard alloys have been processed via Selective Laser Melting (SLM), however, materials exclusively developed for AM have been rarely investigated. In this study, the synthesis of an iron-based alloy containing silver particles as well as the production of microstructurally graded structures are presented as possibilities for obtaining material properties that could not be achieved by conventional processing routes. The bulk microstructure as well as the resulting mechanical and surface electrochemical properties of the complex materials were analyzed and correlated to the process conditions.

Additive Manufacturing for automated Assembly with Robots – Chances and Risks

Robomotion needs production methods for the robot tools, where the prototype of the tool is nearly the same like it will be used in practice later on. The presentation of robomotion shows how this problem was solved by using additive manufacturing methods. Using this new way of production led to more ideas in the design department to think also of other parts like flashes or clamps with that technology. Furthermore the way of development has changed inside the company, influenced by the fast feedback robomotion gets now form the tests and iterations in the test lab. These experiences can be interesting also for standard machine builders which have similar challenges.

Characterization of different FDM Materials

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) from Stratasys is a widespread technology in industrial AM. In contrast to other polymer AM techniques, it is possible to use a wide range of different thermoplastic polymers, such as ABS, PC, Nylon 12, Ultem 9085, Ultem 1010, etc. Due to process characteristics, the materials have to be processed with different tip diameters in order to reach slice heights between 127 µm and 330 µm. Different materials and slice heights result in anisotropic part characteristics. This presentation discusses the material characterization for ABS-M30, Nylon 12 and Ultem 9085 with regard to dimensional accuracy as well as surface and mechanical properties. Therefore, testing techniques and measured data like tensile, bending and impact strength, as well as surface roughness and deviation of different nominal length for the mentioned materials will be presented.

AM using Stereolithography? These Examples show why!

Additive Manufacturing is the key word in 3d printing to justify the great expectations. Rarely are AM and stereolithography mentioned together. This session presents cases which reveal the strengths of stereolithography depending on the given tasks and compare 3d printing technologies against each other. Finally and together, we "risk" a look into the future of stereolithographic development in machines and materials.

New Process Plastic Freeforming – Challenges and Opportunities

This paper presents the challenges and also opportunities of a new developed process called plastic freeforming. ARBURG, famous for injection molding machines entered the additive market with this new process, plastic freeforming. For building up the parts standard resin gets melted with a plasticizing screw. Out of this generated melt, small droplets are forming the parts. Since standard resin can be used, new challenges along with new opportunities arose. The presentation covers application examples showing challenges and opportunities of the ARBURG plastic freeforming process.

Titanium laser melting for biologically inspired lightweight gripper

In academia, industrial design as a university field of research is comparatively little acknowledged. In the presented project a method is being showcased being developed by the scionic® I.D.E.A.L. strategy, where preliminary research is undertaken, new developments in manufacturing technologies are critically scrutinized as well as trends in design processes. In the presented project this method is being illustrated via bio-mimetically induced end effectors. The methods of ideation as well as the respective production technologies are juxtaposed and their results presented. In a first step, through the results of ideation, it is being demonstrated that the bionic approach is not always necessary to achieve design results equalling logically inductive concept development. Subsequently, since different design software was used for the development of the end effectors, new insights could be deducted from this study: the software tools used do not only predetermine the exterior style, but the structure of the to-be defined object alike, just as the material’s texture is affected by the fabrication method chosen.

Developments in Additive Manufacturing in a faraway Country – Opportunities and Risks

New Zealand’s economy is dominated by small and medium sized companies trying to export products over great distances. Additive manufacturing is seen as a good match, with a low barrier to entry producing highly functionalised and customised parts. Industry is changing from a bureau supply approach from overseas to in-house manufacturing supported by local universities. Main focus areas are medical (skeletal and dental implants for humans as well as pets, prostheses, medical instruments), movie industry, specialised manufacturing and spare parts. R&D is undertaken into new materials including composites, rapid tooling and build algorithms.

3D Printing in Space

This presentation reports the status of development and realization of 3D printing in space. Manufacturing in outer space remains one of the crucial capabilities to conduct long duration manned space exploration. The high cost-to-orbit, for leaving the Earths gravitational field, continues to be the limiting factor in carrying sufficient hardware to maintain extended life support in microgravity or on other planets. Long-term missions would benefit greatly from on-board and in-situ manufacturing capabilities.
