In order to expand its footprint in the automotive industry, established SLS experts EOS has partnered with GKN Powder Metallurgy to create a new high-productivity process for laser metal 3D Printing.

The combination of GKN’s metal powder, EOS StainlessSteel 316L VPro, and EOS’s additive manufacturing expertise make it possible to create a high-performance parts designed for end-use at scale, reportedly reducing production time by 70 per cent and overall cost by up to 50 per cent.

We were looking for a strong partner with a high level of expertise in the field of steels and typical industry grade materials combined with a proven track record of further industrialising technologies together with customer applications,” said EOS CEO Dr. Adrian Keppler.

AddUp and simulation experts ESI Group have announced their collaborative Distortion Simulation AddOn, they jointly designed specifically for metal additive manufacturing.

AddUp’s metals 3D printers were founded as a joint venture between French companies Fives and Michelin (of the tyres fame) and its range spans both SLS and EBM technologies.

By integrating simulation directly in the preparatory stages of additive manufacturing, the module brings continuity to the production process using the AddUp Manager user interface, as the working environment for defining simulation parameters, particularly for staff who are not experts in this field.

The TommyKaira ZZ built on GLM’s electric vehicle platform

Aiming to solve the problems for the companies that enter the electric vehicle business, GLM - the Japanese EV company behind the platform for the ZZ sports car - is taking the next steps towards mass production.

Growing demand for its expertise and its own technical platform of electric vehicle development solutions - including chassis, power systems, and vehicle control units - means it is moving its design and engineering capabilities to the ‘Electro Mobility Accelerator’ industry solution from Dassault Systèmes.

GLM will be able to integrate design and development processes, improve efficiency, leverage its knowledge and know-how to expand its range of products and services, and accelerate their delivery to OEMs, suppliers, and other companies involved in electric vehicle development.

Inside the new XJet Additive Manufacturing Centre in Israel

XJet has continued to build on its nano-particle jetting approach to 3D printing, announcing a new ceramic material aimed at the engineering sector and developments on its soluble support material.

Launched as a commercial product only a year ago, its Carmel 1400 system is capable of building parts in ceramics, metals and in the future has the potential to combine the two into a single printed part.

Already producing high-resolution, 99.95% dense ceramic parts from Zirconia, the new ceramic material, Alumina, offers a wider range of engineering uses, faster builds, and more opportunities to manipulate the part while in both its ‘green’ and fired states.
