“Every month the pad handling machine isn’t up and running, we’re missing out on over 15% of increased plant throughput.”— Phil M, Senior Mechanical Designer
Additive manufacturing – for a new drilling experience Imagine trying to drill a hole through your living room wall, down the hallway and into the bedroom, all while standing in front of your house. Sounds impossible? Not when you use the right drilling technique – on the one hand flexible, but on the other hand perfectly built for a challenging
Feedback on EnvisionTEC Training … In the words of Valorie Havercamp, Purple Mountain Jewelry, Inc. “My husband and I attended a training class for our Micro machine in late August and we wanted to give you some feedback. Lauren was our trainer and she was AWESOME! She made something very foreign to us seem understandable. She is a combination of knowledge, experience,
So what makes the Markforged 3D printer unique? It’s patented continuous fiber filament (CFF) technology and Markforged’s Eiger software automatically produces a fiber pattern for maximum strength within the 3D print file.
A decline in productivity in the mining industry over the past decade means industry leaders have been forced to look into an overhaul of existing processes as traditional methods are found wanting in terms of efficiency and cost. Technology within the mining industry.
Rapid 3D will discuss their real engineering experience with 3D Printing and look at applications in the mining industry.

Will 3D printing affect the mining industry? Mining is an industry where bespoke tooling and manufacturing are a core part of daily operations. Problem is, that the current methods of producing tooling and components are time consuming, expensive and wasteful – mining processes that are in need of an overhaul. The many parts, used in mining operations, are made using low volume and one-off
