Welding System Perfect for Joining Dissimilar Materials

Posted on Categories Metals, TechnologyTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Automation Alternatives recently introduced a fiber laser welding system called RubyLaser that is perfect for joining dissimilar materials. Its spot size is as small as 0.001 to 0.002 in. and fast weld speeds allow the system to deliver high power density. These characteristics make it perfect for welding together materials that are not identical.

Typical materials include stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, nitinol and more.

Patent Filed For 3D Printing Process That Could Print an Entire Airplane

Posted on Categories Metals, News, TechnologyTags , , , , ,

3D printing technologies have been around for some time. We’ve been able to print small items, large items, and everything in-between. However, the real technological advancements with 3D printing technologies don’t lie with the function of printing, rather the materials our 3D printers can print. For years we’ve been able to print plastics and soft metals, but never before have we been able to print immensely strong metals that are fit to build an aircraft with. Airbus is filing a patent for a new 3D printing process to do just that. This could really be a game changer in the world of 3D printing and it’s capabilities. Click below to read the full article.

3D Printing Technologies, 6-Axis Laser Metal Deposition System Revealed at EuroMold

Posted on Categories Metals, News, TechnologyTags , , , ,

EuroMold, an internationally recognized trade fair, is going to have a few special surprises at these years event, held November 25th-28th in Frankfurt, Germany. The trade fair is primarily focused on the automobile industry, home appliances and new technology. However, the metals industry is stealing the lime light with a few new technologies.

Featured in this years EuroMold will be a 3D printer technology and a 6-axis laser metal deposition system. Supposedly the 3D printing technology, from 3D Systems, is going to be the most advanced 3D printing technology on the market.

For a full article on the 3D printing technology, click here.

Cybaman announced that they will be bringing their new 6-axis laser metal deposition system. This technology has garnered so much excitement because the technology can be both additive and subtractive, meaning it can print and cut, all in one machine. The current types  of metal and metal alloys that can be used with this machine include aluminum, titanium, cobalt chrome, precious metals, aerospace alloys, PMMA and zirconium oxcide.

This machine’s efficiency is pretty hard to beat due to its additive and subtractive technologies. Now, components and be produced and trimmed all in one machine, making this technology a one stop shop.
