Enhanced Finishing Solution for metal 3D printed components

Additive Manufacturing

There is extreme interest revolving around Additive Manufacturing. Fully functioning cars were produced using Additive Manufacturing techniques during the 2016 IMTS Show in Chicago – demonstrating the process benefits of the AM Technology.

Additive manufacturing (known also under DLMS; SLM; AM, ALM, 3D Printing) is a process of building parts and components layer by layer, connecting powder particles via an energy source. (more…)

AFM: High-Quality Finishing for Industrial 3D Printing

As 3D printers become more ubiquitous, the question manufacturers are trying to answer is not ‘how do we incorporated industrial 3D printing?’ but ‘how do we incorporate industrial 3D printing better than our competitors?’ Whether your application involves additive layer manufacturing (ALM) or laser sintering, the key that can set your
product above the rest is finishing. (more…)

Improving Crankshaft Manufacturing

Improving Crankshaft Manufacturing with Electrochemical Machining

Ensuring sufficient and permanent lubrication of crankshaft bearings in automobile engines is critical for avoiding engine failures. As the crankshaft becomes smaller, due to manufacturing trends and consumer expectations, the number of oil intersection holes increases. All burrs and debris left behind in the drilling process must be removed.

New Microflow Highflow

EXTRUDE HONE brings all new MICROFLOW HIGHFLOW solution to meet the high precision flow targeting system requirements of the heavy-duty market (Marine, trucks, off-highway, and diesel power generators).

The challenges:

With climate changes posing significant risk to the society, reducing the fuel consumption and emissions is one of the critical steps in slowing the negative effects of climate change. Medium and heavy-duty vehicles represent a significantly smaller fraction of the number of vehicles on the road but still contribute to more than one-fifth of emissions. Figure 1 represents the stringent emission standards OEMs in the heavy-duty vehicles market face leading to the following challenges: (more…)
