air cylinders now vie with their stainless-steel counterparts for extended
cycle life in hostile environments. Fabco-Air Inc. offers proprietary coatings for
their aluminum pneumatic product lines, providing a cost-effective alternative
to stainless steel. This white paper
documents rigorous life-cycle testing that shows coated aluminum products are
well-protected against the effects of harsh environments. For a fraction of the cost of 303 or 304
stainless air cylinders, Fabco can deliver corrosion-resistant aluminum products
from any of its product lines within 14-20 days.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
