EOS-Tooling: FWB – Major Savings in Production Time and Cost Using Additive Manufacturing

To ensure that Germany remains an attractive location for the production of injection-moulded tools and plastic components, toolmakers and component producers rely on innovative technologies and procedures that save time and minimise expense. German plastics processors need to make as much use of innovative and economic processes as they can, to be able to meet the cost pressures brought about by lower prices from Eastern European and Far Eastern producers effectively.

FWB Kunststofftechnik GmbH has been working closely with LBC Laser Bearbeitungs Center GmbH, a producer of metal parts using Additive manufacturing. This cooperation has resulted in the present method for realising tool inserts for injection-moulding components.

MARKFORGED-A Revolutionary New Way to Manufacture Metal Parts

Markforged’s Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) process for printing metal unlocks a new era of metal parts production. 3D metal print-farms will shorten development time, closing the gap between prototyping and production. In the next two years Markforged will achieve the technological leap to true digital metal manufacturing. It’™s time for mechanical engineering to enter the digital age.

A Ceramic 3D Printing Breakthrough

The resulting material can withstand ultrahigh temperatures in excess of 1700°C and exhibits strength ten times higher than similar materials.

Previously, The extremely high melting point of many ceramics adds challenges to additive manufacturing as compared with metals and polymers. But now, the invented preceramic monomers are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be pyrolyzed to a ceramic with uniform shrinkage and virtually no porosity by heating.
