3D printed parts help get the wheels in motion

3D printed parts help get the wheels in motion
Wheelchairs are a wonderful brainchild, though no one is quite sure when it was first invented. The first one on record was made for Phillip II of Spain in towards the end of the 1500s. Since then, incremental developments have been made but the basic design (except for specialised sports wheelchairs) remains the same.

3D printing cuts design to manufacture time to hours

3D printing cuts design to manufacture time to hours
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), the British manufacturer of the recently launched Mono R, Stratasys, has revealed the impact additive manufacturing is having on the design and production of the latest edition to the BAC elite supercar offering. When faced with detrimental delays to the design process of an essential airbox, the team turned to Stratasys FDM additive manufacturing to produce fully functional prototypes in record time and improve final, on-road performance.

Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers

Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers
3D printing is already revolutionising the world of design engineering and manufacturing, from aerospace through to the automotive and medical industries. Yet many UK companies, especially small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), are still reluctant to adopt this technology, often due to cost. This is where scalability comes in. Here Chris Elsworthy, MD and Lead Mechanical Engineer, CEL-UK explains why a scalable network of small 3D printers is what today's design engineers need.

3D printing on the threshold of mass production

3D printing on the threshold of mass production
Industrial 3D printing has now become an integral part of metalworking. EMO Hannover 2019 is reflecting this development by launching a compact new section to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in this field. Service providers, machine and tool manufacturers as well as software providers will be presenting their latest innovations in the 300m2 additive manufacturing circle show area.

Is stackable 3D printers the answer to faster and cheaper design?

Is stackable 3D printers the answer to faster and cheaper design?
Stackable 3D printers may hold the key to a faster yet more cost-effective design and manufacturing process. But what is stackable 3D printing? And how does it work to benefit businesses and meet their printing needs? To answer these questions, CEL has released a new white paper; ‘Stackable: the key to faster and more accurate 3D printing’.
