We'd like to send a big thanks to Pam Waterman for the great article in RapidReady, a Digital Engineering publication. Here are some highlights from the article:
The MPIF Standard 35 for powder metallurgy now includes two aluminum alloys in the 2xxx designation series.
AM Shows and Disruptive Magazine have decided to join forces in the lead up to Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017 and bring you the Exhibitor Spotlight Q&A series. This is an opportunity for exhibitors to share their views on the future of industrial additive manufacturing and 3D printing as well as a preview of what you'll see on the show floor. If you like what you read, all the more reason to come and meet them December 6-8, in Pasadena, California.
After 20 years of iteration on the same basic additive-manufacturing technologies for metal, a new wave of innovation is emerging. Lower-cost, safer processes are replacing the old ways of doing things, offering vastly different material properties through resolution, surface quality and design freedom.
NEW YORK, July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- America Makes and the American National Standards Institute(ANSI) today announced the launch of phase 2 of the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC) with a kick-off meeting scheduled for September 7th in Philadelphia. Major goals of phase 2 include expanding the discussion of standards needs for polymers and other materials besides metals and engaging experts from other industry sectors such as automotive, heavy equipment, energy, consumer products, and tooling. A free webinar to provide an overview of the AMSC and how to prepare for the September 7th meeting will be held on August 17th from 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT.
As new products are designed, including valve bodies and the parts that comprise the finished valve, prototypes must be created. How that is achieved is what makes the difference in how long it takes to get development done and the product to market.
Boeing has given more details about how 3D printing and other advanced manufacturing techniques are changing the dynamics of satellite production.
Boeing Satellite Systems International President Mark Spiwak explained to Via Satellite some of the recent trends in the satellite industry. The article gives more information about how Boeing are using additive manufacturing to overcome them and remain competitive.
We had a chance to speak with two individuals at 3DEO, a promising 3D metal printing startup.
3DEO produces a 3D metal printer with an unusual - and new - process that should prove effective and economical for users.
We spoke with Matt Sand, President of 3DEO and Lance Kallman, VP Business Development.
A Los Angeles-based company is working a new 3D metal printing process that could prove popular.
3DEO is a new startup that has developed their own patent-pending 3D metal printing process. Like many 3D metal printing processes, 3DEO starts with metal powder.
However, it’s not the same type of metal powder required by other 3D metal printing processes. Those processes require very fine particles because the resolution of the final object is a function of the particle size: the laser fuses the particles together.

Craig Paullin has a problem.
“About 20% of the inquiries I receive are either for prototype work or for low volume orders,” he says.
As the owner and CEO of PSM Industries—a metal fabrication company out of LA specializing in metal injection molding (MIM), sintered metal, and powdered metal technologies—these requests are troubling.
