Combining CT Scanning with Additive Manufacturing standard

Excerpt from an article www.digitalengineering247.com CT scanning has the ability to provide detailed quality inspection scans of 3D printed parts for many industries. This role in additive manufacturing supplements how CT scanning is already used in reverse engineering activities. Whilst 3D printing enables the production of parts in previously impossible designs, there is a need to inspect them, and that’s where CT scanning comes in. As 3D printing allows the production of complex internal structures, CT scanners provide a unique way to help quality inspect the accuracy of printed parts which will be used in production. Other scanning and metrology techniques are limited to only recording the exterior surfaces of the parts. “We see a lot of interest in printing components because ...

Additive Manufacturing – Not just for prototyping… standard

Whilst additive manufacturing (AM) technologies (also known as 3D printing) have gained significant traction over recent years in the design of complex components and creation of early prototypes, there is still some way to go before many industries adopt them for full component production. AM has the potential to not only transform a firm’s design and production activities but also to positively impact other aspects of their business, including product customisation and the reconfiguration of their supply chains.   Resistance to additive manufacturing in production The uptake of AM technologies beyond prototyping and small-scale production remains slow, as illustrated by recent research. A survey was undertaken of 110 product and industrial designers and design engineers located in 25 countries. It showed that whilst ...
