Avio Aero 3Dprints parts for the Catalyst engine for the Cessna Denali

Up to ten GE Catalyst components will be produced in this area. The engine’s first flight is scheduled for the end of 2019. It is the first turboprop engine in the world with almost 30% of its internal metal parts 3D printed. In Brindisi, work has already begun on three of these ten additive components. This number will continue to grow as the number of GE Additive-Concept Laser machines DMLM (Direct Metal Laser Melting) does.

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

Stijn Brilman

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.

How to boost Additive Manufacturing (AM) for serial production? Opportunities to improve AM processes and Machines – Presented by Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

With the industrial transition to use Additive Manufacturing (AM) for Series Production, AM machine builders, SW/HW providers and end-users are confronted with different challenges to increase productivity, decrease lead time and produce parts with high quality. The current practice is however far from reaching the desired productivity and quality that are translated to large scrap rate in current production. This presentation will highlight examples for opportunities, based on industrial projects conducted by Flanders Make, to improve the AM process and machines leading to reduce lead time, increase productivity and reduce the scrap rate.

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”
