RIT Uses Optomec’s LENS 3D Printing Process to Fix Metal Gear Shaft

The complexity possible through 3D printing is especially helpful for making specific replacement parts, and incorporating the technology is a good way to provide excellent customer service for those who need parts not easily found in traditional supply chains, like components for older machinery. In addition, one of the other great benefits of 3D printed […]

Multi-material printed systems poised to shape consumer products

Almost any electronic technology has one truism attached to it: You can’t develop it if you can’t test it. This is particularly the case with wireless and other communications products. Unfortunately, getting from design to prototype to test can take a month or more. Product developers must first navigate an evolving set of design requirements […]

3D printed heart valve could improve heart surgeries of the future

3D Printing Industry
3dprintingindustry.com

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers, together with the Piedmont Heart Institute, have created a patient-specific heart valve model using a 3D printer.

In a bid to improve the success rates of transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR), the researchers say creating patient models will allow doctors to better prepare for heart surgery. With the models […]

Metal AM: Is Welding the Way In?

Optomec’s machine tool for metal 3D printing is also an accessible system for automated welding. The embrace of one use of this machine might lead to increasing exploration of the other.

Peter Zelinski
Editor-in-Chief, Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing as a means of making metal parts is a new possibility for many production facilities. Meanwhile, welding is a metalworking […]
