AMGTA Study to Compare Lifecycle Assessments of Aerospace Component
The Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA) announced that it has selected the Golisano Institute for Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology to conduct a lifecycle assessment comparing an additively designed and manufactured aerospace component to a traditionally manufactured component. “This new study will include as many as 18 different environmental indicators to quantify the environmental impacts that an optimized jet-engine LPT bracket has throughout its entire lifecycle—from material extraction to manufacturing, transportation, use, and its eventual end of life,” says Sherry Handel, AMGTA executive director.

nTopology October Free Webinar to Explore Topology Optimization in Aerospace Design
Topology optimization is an effective generative design tool for weight reduction, but aerospace components often operate under rapid dynamic loads or high-frequency vibrations. nTopology addresses this issue in a free webinar, Advanced Topology Optimization for Aerospace: Dynamic Analysis, Manufacturability & Cost, October 12 at 11 a.m. ET. Engineers from Cognitive Design Systems and nTopology will demonstrate how to combine topology optimization with bionic design, lattice structures and dynamic design analysis to address engineering, manufacturing and cost requirements.

Quintus HIP Headed to New Oregon AM Research Center
A Quintus Technologies hot isostatic press (HIP) will help anchor the new 30,000-sq.-ft. additive research facility at the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research & Development (OMIC R&D) in Scappoose, OR, when it opens next year. The Quintus QIH 48 M URC press will allow new research into 3D printing technology and optimized material properties. The press is equipped with Quintus’ Uniform Rapid Cooling, which combines HIP and heat treatment in a single process. Accelerated cooling under pressure minimizes thermal distortion and improves material properties.

Can 3D Printing Solve the Global Semiconductor Shortage?
Let’s explore three semiconductor AM options that have demonstrated advantages: wafer-table thermal management; manifold fluid-flow optimization; and structural optimization and advanced flexures.

Predicting AM-Part Performance
Post-processing steps such as heat treatment, hot isostatic pressing (HIP) and surface finishing, significantly affect AM-part performance. Here we describe a probabilistic model developed by EWI to predict part performance based on both the build process and the post-processing technique.
