Print & Assemble—the Future of AM?

While this technology for home 3D printers may be functioning on a small scale, the pick-and-place concept could hold potential for larger industrial applications.

 

Incorporating 3D Printing

Technologies that give moldmakers the ability to test out a couple different designs before investing in the final tool.

 

Learn about 3D Printing of Large Parts at Amerimold 2015

At next week’s Amerimold show, Dr. Chad Duty will give complementary showfloor presentations on “Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM).” Dr. Duty, a leading researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will discuss how polymer-based additive manufacturing processes enable the production of large parts—parts as large as a full-sized car body. This technology promises to take time and money out of the tool and mold manufacturing process.
