Engineers Reinvent Metal 3D Printing
Engineering Materials 10/29/2013 15 comments Engineers are reinventing 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM). The latest idea, from father/son-startup Vader Systems, uses liquid metal jet printing (LMJP) to make solid metal, full-production parts.
The RoHS Initiative Had a Big Effect on Product Quality
Guest Blogs 10/29/2013 17 comments When RoHS hit the manufacturing sector, big OEMs had to scramble with lead-free experiments to stay ahead of the competition. This had a monumental impact on a connector that now faced a redesign of virtually every connector in its portfolios.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry ďto fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].Ē
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
