Sciaky EBAM Ti-Alloy Deposition Rate Surpasses 40 lb./hr.
During its Metallic Advanced Materials for Aeronautics project, France’s Saint Exupéry Institute for Research in Technology employed the Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process from Sciaky, Inc. to deposit a titanium alloy at a rate surpassing 40 lb./hr. This reportedly marks the highest deposition rate achieved yet in industrial metal additive manufacturing (AM).

nTopology Updates Software’s Lattice-Generation Capabilities
Engineering-software provider nTopology, via launch of its third-generation latticing technology, has updated its lattice-generation capabilities. The new latticing tools, according to company officials, are easy to use, faster than before and offer greater control over complex lattice structures.

Altair Acquires Gen3D to Expand Capabilities for AM Design Technology
Software provider Altair has acquired Gen3D, an AM startup originating at the University of Bath (United Kingdom). Gen3D has provided pioneering work in developing the implicit geometry method for describing highly complex geometries such as lattice structures in AM.

Gen3D’s technology reportedly uses advanced implicit modeling techniques to rapidly create complex geometry not practical with traditional boundary-representation solid approaches. This allows for components to be designed simply by specifying the functional requirements for the part (loads, holes for fastenings, keep-out zones, ducts for fluid flow, etc.), according to company officials, who also note that the technology automatically filters out component geometries likely to cause downstream manufacturing issues. The reported result: the ability to create complex designs rapidly while minimizing the risk of in-print failures.

Aidro Qualifies to Supply Aluminum AM Flight Parts to Leonardo
Aidro, a Desktop Metal subsidiary that provides volume production of hydraulic and fluid-power systems via metal AM, has become a qualified supplier of aluminum flight parts for the helicopters division of Leonardo. Aidro is one of only two suppliers to receive the Declaration for Qualification of Process for Additive Layer Manufacturing with Leonardo, a provider to aerospace, defense and security markets.

“We are proud to be selected by Leonardo Helicopters as a qualified supplier of 3D printed aluminum flight parts,” says Tommaso Tirelli, Aidro CEO and vice president of business development. “The components we are producing for Leonardo require extensive knowledge in managing fluids and fluid power, which has always been Aidro’s main competence.
