Enquête

Neem deel aan de enquête over Additive Manufacturing in Vlaanderen en Nederland…

En win…! (Survey, Dutch spoken)

17 organisaties hebben de handen in elkaar geslagen met één doel: een beter zicht krijgen op (het gebruik van) Additive Manufacturing in Nederland en Vlaanderen. We hopen dat jij ook even de tijd neemt om deze enquête in te vullen. Met die informatie kunnen we aan de slag om de innovatiecapaciteit van ondernemingen in de regio te versterken. We hopen dat u ook deelneemt, zodat we met de verzamelde data beter kunnen inspelen op de noden van de industrie. Dat is ook in uw voordeel!

B.V. ISO/TC 261 the technical committee of standardization in the field of additive manufacturing works together with ASTM F42 Committee. The work here created is followed and the standards are adopted by CEN TC438. Currently this committee has published 14 standards, have 23 standards under development in the 7 active work groups. The standards are developed under the topics concerning AM processes (hard- and software), terms and definitions, test procedures, quality parameters, supply agreements and all kind of fundamentals.

Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques have been extensively explored in the last decades due to their potential to transform existent production technologies. Fused filament fabrication (FFF) is a very versatile AM technique, although it is widely used for prototyping due to their limited mechanical properties, especially in between layers.

Despite their great potential for individualization, 3D-printing processes for polymer parts like SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) and FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) have the particular disadvantage of a high surface roughness; therefore, surface finishing is often necessary. However, current finishing procedures often have deficits such as low flexibility, long process times or incorporation of abrasives in the component. Therefore, Fraunhofer ILT is developing a non-contact, laser-based polishing process for additively manufactured plastic components.

Continuous fiber 3D printing allows producing fixtures, spare parts and functional prototypes which are several times stronger and lighter than plastics and metals. There are 2 types of continuous fiber 3D printing, they both have pros and cons. To take the best from both Composite Fiber Co-extrusion technology was developed. Use cases will be shown.

Aligning molecular and structural dynamics in additive manufacturing of thermoplastics (VIDEO)

Jules Harings

by Jules Harings, Maastricht University, Aachen Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials Additive manufacturing is a technology that develops rapidly as a niche within the field of discrete manufacturing. Unique products of high added value rely on customisation and nearly endless design flexibility and are progressively introduced in automotive, aerospace, art and medical industry.
