Industrializing AM and merging the worlds of additive manufacturing and machining – Presented by Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions

Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Getting rid of the bin of broken dreams! How do we deliver high quality and accurate metal products? Unfortunately, people often forget that AM is more than the printer and controlling the printing process. In order to realize the full potential of additive manufacturing, companies must employ a robust process that integrates design, engineering, manufacturing planning and production operations.

In this presentation we provide the insights of an end-to-end workflow where AM and machining are combined.

Don’t simulate your design, design your simulation! – Orlando Sardaro, Design8

Don’t simulate your design, design your simulation! – Orlando Sardaro, Design8, at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

We are used to start our design process on paper using a pencil and finish it using CAD. And that is fine. I don’t believe there is any CAD system today that is as flexible as a pencil. Continue reading “Don’t simulate your design, design your simulation! – Orlando Sardaro, Design8”

Stereolithography 3D Printing with biobased resins – Presented by Geraldine Schnelting, Green PAC

Stereolithography 3D Printing with biobased resins – Presented by Geraldine Schnelting, Green PAC, at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

The accessibility of cost-competitive renewable materials and their application in additive manufacturing is essential for an efficient biobased economy. Current photopolymer resins on the commercial market for stereolithografie 3D printing are fossil-based and expensive, while the availability of low-cost renewable resins is needed to facilitate waste-free and local manufacturing of sustainable 3D products.

Recently, photopolymer resins based on renewable (meth)acrylates were developed and successfully applied in stereolithography 3D printing. Continue reading “Stereolithography 3D Printing with biobased resins – Presented by Geraldine Schnelting, Green PAC”

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The industry is experiencing a strong shift towards industrial processes, standards and the application of latest technologies in the past years. It is now important to perform the next step towards the digitalization of all processes and the availability of data resources along the process chain. Additive Manufacturing on the other hand as well becomes an industrial technology. What started as a rapid prototyping technology then became a media and hobby manufacturers hype finally approaches the factories of the world. While processes, material availability and productivity are getting adult, a crucial lack remains unsolved: realizing integrated IT infrastructures in order to bring together conventional and additive manufacturing – this is especially valid when applying Additive Manufacturing for industrial applications. The presentation will showcase actual developments and applications of AM, “Industrie 4.0” and integrated process chains following the idea of “Connected, Adaptive Production”.

Scaling up 3D printing production with automated post-processing – Presented by Stefan Rink, AM-Flow

Scaling up 3D printing production with automated post-processing – Presented by Stefan Rink, CEO, AM-Flow, at the AM Integrated Factory Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

With increasing production volumes, the 3D printing supply-chain must adapt. Traditional supply-chain solutions are not always suitable, as 3D printing enables the cost-effective production of complex geometries in small batch-sizes (High Mix, High Volume).

Bottle-necks in scaling up production, are the identification, sorting, transport and packaging processes. These processes are currently done manually and the cost scale linearly with production capacity.

AM-Flow solves a critical step by fully automating these processes, by using proven methods from traditional manufacturing and advanced methods, such as machine vision.

AM-Flow enables the next step in industrial polymer 3D printing, towards lean six sigma en Quick Response Manufacturing. Continue reading “Scaling up 3D printing production with automated post-processing – Presented by Stefan Rink, AM-Flow”

Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts – Presented by Joseph Crabtree, Additive Manufacturing Technologies

Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts – Presented by Joseph Crabtree, Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

During the last decade, there has been a considerable growth in the production of end use polymer components via powder based additive manufacturing methods such as laser sintering and HP MJF. However, due to the nature of the powder based media and the layer by layer process used in additive manufacturing, quality, aesthetic and application issues remain, especially when compared to traditional manufacturing methods like injection molding. Current solutions to these issues mostly include labor-intensive post-processing that erodes many of the benefits of the digital additive manufacturing process.
