United Kingdom-based Harlow Group Ltd., provider of sheetmetal fabrication services, announced during last week’s IMTS show in Chicago that its United States subsidiary, FasTech LLC, will be home to a newly purchased Arc605 machine from Germany-based Gefertech GmbH, provider of 3D metal printers that combine the arc welding process with CAD, enabling additive manufacturing of metallic components. Optional three or five axes of motion provide maximum flexibility in terms of component volume while optional integration of a milling machine in the arc machines allows for immediate finishing of the workpiece.
The new additive manufacturing technology isfor fast and economical production of larger parts made of steel, nickel-based alloys, titanium or aluminium.

Renishaw Aids Human-Powered Land-Speed Record Attempt

Friday, September 14, 2018
Renishaw plc, the Gloucestershire, United Kingdom-based engineering technologies company, announced its provision of additive manufacturing (AM) expertise to the University of Liverpool Velocipede Team for its Arion 4 project, which aims to be among the fastest human-powered bikes in the world.

For its part, Renishaw made available AM machines and expertise to the ULV team, which designed and additively manufactured the CTS, a vital component of the bike to support the team's attempt to break the current hand cycle land speed record this month at the World Human Powered Speed Challenge at Battle Mountain, NV.

The 3D-printed component weighs about 21 oz. and maintains stiffness due to the mechanical properties of titanium. The component is considered the backbone of the Arion 4 transmission system, allowing riders to put in as much power as possible without worrying about the structural integrity of the front of the bike.

Sciaky to Provide Largest AM Machine to 3D-Printed Parts Bureau

Thursday, September 13, 2018

custom EBAM systemSciaky, Inc., a Chicago-based subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. and provider of additive-manufacturing (AM) solutions, will provide an Electronic Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) system to FamAero, a privately owned metal 3D-printed parts bureau in Fenton, MI.

FAMAero, an abbreviation for Future Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, will leverage the technology to provide fast, affordable large-scale 3D printed parts and prototypes for customers in aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and sea-exploration industries. The custom EBAM system ordered by FAMAero, believed to be the world’s largest production metal 3D printer, with a nominal part envelope of 146-in. wide by 62-in. deep x 62-in. high, enables to FAMAero to produce metal parts over 12 ft. in length (roughly 3.7 meters).
