    A Crash Course on Electron-Beam 3D Printing

    • April 10, 2020

    Have you heard of electron-beam melting (EBM). A form of additive manufacturing, it’s become an increasingly popular manufacturing process. Like other forms of additive manufacturing, it involves the use of a machine to build complex objects layer by layer. EBM, however, uses a unique approach that offers several noteworthy benefits. For a crash course on

    Compression Molding vs Injection Molding: What’s the Difference?

    • April 9, 2020

    Molding is a common type of manufacturing process in which liquid material — typically plastic, rubber or other polymers — is added to a mold cavity to create a product or component. The raw material is usually heated, after which it’s added to a mold cavity. As the raw material cools, it hardens while taking

    What Is Multi-Material 3D Printing?

    • April 8, 2020

    3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry. According to research cited by AMFG, the 3D printing materials market is projected to reach nearly a half-billion dollars by 2029. Using a 3D printer, manufacturing companies can build components and products layer by layer. There are different types of 3D printing, however, one of which is multi-material

  • What is a Bill of Materials?

    • April 6, 2020

    For every manufactured item from a spoon to a spacecraft there is a document known as a “blueprint”. Blueprints got their name from the ink color used in early document reproduction. If the blueprint is the birth certificate and life history of a part, then the bill of materials (BOM) contained therein is the recipe.

    5 Facts About Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

    • April 3, 2020

    Have you heard of fused filament fabrication (FFF)? Also known as filament freeform fabrication, it’s a popular 3D printing process that’s characterized by the use of a continuous plastic filament. It involves the use of a 3D printer that guides the filament through an extruder header, after which the material is deposited onto the workpiece.

    3D Printing vs Additive Manufacturing: What’s the Difference?

    • April 2, 2020

    Many people assume that the terms “3D printing” and “additive manufacturing” refer to the same manufacturing process of building objects by depositing layers of material. The two terms, in fact, have become synonymous with this manufacturing process. So, what’s the difference between 3D printing and additive manufacturing exactly? What Is 3D Printing? 3D printing is
