Direct Metal Manufacturing DVD
Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this program explores advancements in Direct Metal Manufacturing and shows how these technologies affect the creation of parts and tooling in various metals.
Written by industry expert Todd Grimm, this program demonstrates the current state of direct metal manufacturing processes. It illustrates what happens when innovative companies capitalize on direct metal manufacturing to make dramatic changes to the way parts and tooling are designed.
The first example is at Morris Technologies (Cincinnati, OH) where an EOS direct-metal laser sintering machine is able to deliver metal prototype parts in four days to help clients show off a new key lock.
Next we talk with the Synergeering Group (Farmington Hills, MI) about their experience making titanium parts directly from CAD data using the Arcam Electron Beam Melting technology.
At D-M-E (Madison Heights, MI) we highlight the Moldfusion process as it is used to develop metal tooling for the injection molding process.
The POM Group (Auburn Hills, MI) demonstrates their direct metal deposition equipment, which can blend various metals to tailor material properties to product requirements.
