Lighter, Consolidated Heat-Exchanger Parts Benefit Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
At RAPID + TCT a few weeks ago, Farsoon Americas displayed aluminum heat-exchanger parts for a newly designed autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), with Farsoon having helped engineer the part’s structural integration and contributing to manufacturing using its dual-laser FS301M laser powder-bed fusion machine. Engineers achieved a build time of 96 hr. with build-layer thickness of 0.05 mm. As-printed parts reportedly feature excellent size accuracy and surface quality, and require post-process heat treatment, wire cutting and sandblasting.

Markforged Releases Cloud-Based Software to Scale AM
Also from RAPID + TCT, Markforged unveiled Eiger Fleet, a cloud-based software solution designed to accelerate the adoption of additive-manufacturing (AM) operations at scale. Eiger Fleet helps to transform AM from a small-scale operation to a large globally connected, distributed manufacturing fleet by giving organizations a secure, cloud-connected and centralized source of control over their Markforged 3D printers, users and part production, according to company officials.

Learn here how Vestas Wind Systems A/S uses Eiger Fleet to manage the production of parts and tools on Markforged 3D printers for the company’s global fleet of wind turbines.

Mantle Adds Funding, Cites Growth in its Hybrid Process for Tooling
We met with Mantle officials at RAPID + TCT, as the company, which earlier this year debuted its TrueShape hybrid manufacturing process targeting the tooling market, announced $25 million in Series B funding. Mantle will use the new financing to increase its hardware, software, materials-science and manufacturing teams to accelerate the development and installation of its first commercial systems in early 2022.

Earlier this year the firm debuted its TrueShape hybrid manufacturing process, targeting the tooling market. Mantle’s process enables creation of tight-tolerance features printing high-hardness steels, and reportedly enables users to deploy new tools within only a few weeks, rather than months using more conventional processes.
