America Makes Announces Call for AM Projects
America Makes announced a new Rapid Innovation Call (RIC) for projects worth $500,000 in total funding from the Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Manufacturing and Industrial Base Technology Division, to further advance the maturation of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies.

This RIC will address needs in six topic domains including understanding build interruptions via AM-monitoring; AM part families for product qualification and certification; and defect detection and mitigation via hybrid AM.

AM Startup Fabric8Labs Secures $19.3 Million in Capital Funding
San Diego, CA-based AM startup Fabric8Labs announced closure of a Series A funding round that has netted $19.3 million. The capital infusion reportedly enables Fabric8Labs to accelerate commercialization of its miniaturized metal-AM approach that offers applications possibilities in semiconductor packaging, electronics, medical, thermal management and radio-frequency components.

Fabric8Labs' process rapidly fabricates complex metal parts at the atomic level, according to company officials, enabling superior feature resolution and enhanced material properties. The distinct approach reportedly eliminates the need for expensive metal powders and time-consuming post-processing, and the system operates near room temperature, thus minimizing total energy consumption as compared to legacy products.

On-demand Webinar Recording: NoSupports Metal Printing
Past methods for supporting metal additive (AM) parts have imposed limitations on part design. The increased complexity of removing supports has added cost and lead time, and some parts & applications have even been disqualified from AM due to support-based issues. Watch now to learn how NoSupports Metal Printing fixes that.
