Additive manufacturing a new frontier for composites
Leading additive manufacturing authority Terry Wohlers (Wohlers Associates Inc., Ft. Collins., Colo.) comments on two decades of AM progress and AM's prospects as a composites manufacturing solution.
Direct manufacturing of military aircraft parts
Laser sintering process shortens lead time, simplifies production of complex, high-performance parts.
The rise of rapid manufacturing
An outgrowth of rapid prototyping, tool-free additive fabrication technologies have the potential to form small, limited-run composite parts directly from CAD data.
Prototyping and manufacturing by additive fabrication
Additive fabrication (AF) technology, such as laser sintering (LS) and fused deposition modeling (FDM), encompasses a wide range of applications. The earliest was rapid prototyping to support design, concept modeling, fit/function testing, and pattern making without the need to construct expensive tooling for prototypes and test articles. Manufacturers also are using AF to produce jigs, fixtures, drill guides, and other manufacturing and assembly tools.
Rapid Manufacturing, Part II: Pioneer Applications
Harbingers of what could be a significant trend, these composites manufacturers demonstrate the potential of additive fabrication and several innovative materials in tool-free manufacture of complex components.
Rapid Manufacturing, Part I: The Technologies
An outgrowth of rapid prototyping, tool-free additive fabrication is shortening product development cycles for manufacturers of smaller, limited-run composite parts.
