Size matters: Shielding gas flow configuration

21 September, 2020
Inert gas flow is a crucial element of Laser Powder Bed Fusion process control and achieving the desired part quality and consistency across the build plate. This challenge scales with the LPBF system’s chamber size, number of lasers and the applied laser power, which influence the rate with which process emissions are produced. Would you like to discover on how important the design of the flow configuration is in Additive Manufacturing? Read our white paper “Size matters: How designing the flow configuration in large frame systems is vital when pushing the boundaries of productivity in Additive Manufacturing” and get one step closer to becoming a productivity leader yourself: https://www.additiveindustries.com/white-paper 

Sigma Labs and Additive Industries announce MetalFAB1 certified as PrintRite3D® Ready

10 September, 2020
In a joint partnership of the engineering teams of Sigma Labs, a leading developer of in-process quality assurance software for the additive manufacturing industry, and Additive Industries, the MetalFAB1 is now qualified as PrintRite3D Ready. This will allow the MetalFAB1 to be equipped with a melt pool monitoring solution. Ready for up to four full field lasers and real time multi-laser visualizations, the integration of the PrintRite3D Melt-Pool Monitoring solution is a valuable addition to the MetalFAB1 product. Real time visualization can be viewed in 2D or 3D and potential anomalies in the part will be highlighted. 

Additive Industries’ Productivity Leadership Challenge: 10 steps to remain Productivity Leader

03 September, 2020
As productivity leaders we often get challenged to push the boundaries of parts built in additive manufacturing. Through our Process & Application Development Centres around the word we are able to assist our customers in achieving their aspirations. During 10 coming weeks, in the run up to Formnext, we will show how to achieve the promise of AM through all the aspects of manufacturing end-use parts, what productivity means, how to achieve both quality and  low part price, and even show you what this means to our customers. Join us for 10 episodes, to learn what ingredients are required to also become productivity leaders
