Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Watching the video makes cleas what kind of parts this process is good for.

 

If you find postprocessing is an issue with Electron Beam Melting from ARCAM, and even from Laser Sintrering from EOS, then this is not for you.

Aerojet Rocketdyne Successfully Tests Thrust Chamber Assembly Using Copper Alloy Additive Manufacturing Technology | Aerojet Rocketdyne

NASA and Aerojet Rocketdyne successfully completed a series of hot-fire tests on an advanced rocket engine Thrust Chamber Assembly (TCA) using copper alloy additive manufacturing technology. This testing, conducted for the first time in the industry, was done with cooperation between Aerojet Rocketdyne, NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate Game-Changing Development Program and NASA's Glenn Research Center under a Space Act Agreement.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:
 

Last Aug 18, 2014 Aerojet Rocketdyne, a GenCorp (NYSE: GY) company, announced it had recently been awarded a contract by Wright-Patterson Air Force Base through the Defense Production Act Title III Office for large-scale additive manufacturing development and demonstration. The contract will secure multiple large selective laser melting machines to develop liquid rocket engine applications for national security space launch services. Aerojet Rocketdyne and its subcontractors will design and develop larger scale parts to be converted from conventional manufacturing to additive manufacturing.

Now, they present results from a lot of hot fire tests on copper parts. Does it indicate UK-based 3T-RPD are behind this? 

http://www.3trpd.co.uk/3t-success-with-pure-copper-am-production/

 

They also indicate that they have been working with 10 inch machines and the new system is bigger, so they are probably talking about the new ESO M-400 (http://www.eos.info/systems_solutions/metal/systems_equipment/eos_m_400)

FDA Clears 3-D Printed Osteotomy Truss System from 4WEB Medica

FDA Clears 3-D Printed Osteotomy Truss System from 4WEB Medica | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

“Similar to the technology used in bridges, skyscrapers, and airplane wings, truss designs provide strong structural support and integrity when implanted within the body with the goal of sustaining angular corrections,” said John Crates, M.D., a foot and ankle surgeon based in Plano, Texas. “Additionally, the structural mechanics and surface topology of the Osteotomy Truss System promote osseous incorporation and potentially accelerate healing.”

TRUMPF is back in AM!!

TRUMPF is back in AM!! | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

TRUMPF entered the additive manufacturing sector as a pioneer back in the year 2000. The “TrumaForm” – a universal tool for the generative manufacturing of metallic materials – was, however, years ahead of its time because the market for serial production of components had not yet developed. At the start of this year TRUMPF entered the additive manufacturing business once again, and is now benefiting from the results of earlier development work as well as from its ever increasing expertise in the related process of laser deposition welding, which is already being used today in all kinds of sectors for repair and coating applications.

SpaceX Launches Additive Manufatured Part to Space, Creates Engine Chamber for Crewed Spaceflight

SpaceX Launches Additive Manufatured Part to Space, Creates Engine Chamber for Crewed Spaceflight | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Through 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, robust and high-performing rocket parts can be created and offer improvements over traditional manufacturing methods. SpaceX is pushing the boundaries of what additive manufacturing can do in the 21st century, ultimately making the Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft more reliable, robust and efficient than ever before.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Very nice part. I guess it has "secret" cooling chambers inside. This could be manufactured in one thanks to the new EOS M400. Inconel produces great results with EOSINT machines.
