Plastic protoypes created using additive methods of rapid manufacturing can be used as tooling to produce molds and cores, as well.
In contrast, the BAAM system deposits high-performance engineered thermoplastics and customized thermoplastic composites via melt extrusion processing, which enables rapid manufacturing of parts completely unbounded in size.
In attendance at the 10th anniversary celebration last week was David Alan Bourne, principal scientist-robotics and director of the Rapid Manufacturing Lab at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute in nearby Pittsburgh.
They cover basics, definition, and applications levels; characteristics of the additive manufacturing process; machines for rapid prototyping, direct tooling, and direct manufacturing; rapid prototyping; rapid tooling; direct manufacturing: rapid manufacturing; safety and environmental protection; economic aspects; and future rapid prototyping processes.
Industrial 3D printing and other rapid manufacturing technologies like CNC machining, which the auto and consumer electronics industries have used in product development for a while now, offer a number of new opportunities as automakers add new consumer features, optimize designs, use new materials, and see continuing strong demand for personalization and customization of those features, according to Joshua Cregger, a project manager at the Center for Automotive Research.
There are several rapid manufacturing options to produce prototypes and functional plastic parts throughout medical device development--3D printing, machining, and molding are three big ones.
Furthermore, there will be a schedule of technical workshops offering hands-on, practical advice in areas such as linear motion; test and measurement; rapid manufacturing; embedded software development; composites; and sensors and signal conditioning.
Professor Day - an expert on the rapid manufacturing of composites, critical for the next generation of aircraft - founded the North West Composites Centre at Manchester University before joining Glyndwr in 2010, where he helped set up the Advanced Composites Training and Development Centre with Airbus in Broughton, Flintshire.
Harry Keen, Sinead Lynch, James Minty and Aidan Wickham, who graduated this summer, have been awarded the prize for the quality of work produced within their final year project, titled 'The Design, Demonstration and Evaluation of a Hybrid Rapid Manufacturing System.' The prize was presented by Caroline Simcock, global compliance and approvals manager at Dyson, after the graduates returned to give a talk on their project to existing students on the Engineering Design Course.
We have a strong technical staff to provide value-added engineering and design support services to complement our rapid manufacturing of prototypes, "customs and special" instrument modification, and production-volume manufacturing services.
"For the customer, this means better quality products that also can be weight-optimized to help improve fuel efficiency," explained Paul Susalla, Ford section supervisor of rapid manufacturing.
