Masters of sintering plastics, EOS has launched the EOS P 810, a large frame, dual laser system specifically designed to process a new high-performance, carbon fibre reinforced PEKK-based material, called HT-23.

Developed in close cooperation with Boeing, this world’s first economic, high-temperature polymer AM solution addresses industry requirements for ‘demanding high-performance parts’ as required by the aerospace industry, though we suspect it will find uses in other industries, particularly given its large build volume.

The P 810 machine is built to only build using this new powder, with a build volume of 700 x 380 x 380 mm, with two 70-watt lasers with EOS focussing on dimensional accuracy and productivity – other interesting notes are the relatively low refresh rate for the powder (40%) particularly for filled polymer powder material.

Stratasys has unveiled a range of new FDM 3D printing solutions designed to accelerate the use of additive manufacturing on the factory floor, led by its new F900 family.

The F900 is available in a new series of three solutions: the F900, the F900 AICS (Aircraft Interiors Certification Solution), and the F900 PRO, all boasting 914.4 x 609.6 x 914.4 mm build area, that can be split to provide two ‘build zones’ for either small or large build sheets.

The F900 Aircraft Interiors Certification Solution (AICS), announced at the Paris Air Show, is a solution for flight-worthy parts.

The latest version of Visionary Render, Virtalis’ flagship engineering VR software, offers the ability to share 3D models across an entire enterprise thanks to a new cloud-based structure.

Built specifically to maintain design and engineering information, as opposed to a repurposed gaming engine, Visionary Render 2 acts as a platform linking both structured and unstructured data, meaning CAD PLM can be brought together with any mix of data from IOT, laser scans, point clouds, weather feeds and more.

Virtalis says that giant data sets can be rendered at lightning speed, and that thanks to its mesh network, it can stream to a range of devices, ‘including tablets, all while maintaining vital security and data integrity features’.

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ll be familiar with the concept of Industry 4.0, and while there are as many interpretations as there are experts on the subject, one of the cornerstones of the ‘next industrial revolution’ is the Smart Factory.

The technology industry is practically foaming at the mouth and expounding on how its toolset technology and product ‘align with the movement’, yet if you want to dip your toe into building a smart assembly environment or factory, it’s difficult to know where to start.

To help with this start-up Tulip has launched its Factory Kit, that when combined with its software as a service offering for connecting hardware to intelligent work instructions, shopfloor monitoring, analytics and much more, gives users the chance to start to explore the potential without costing you a small fortune in consulting and services.
