3D Printing News Alert(3D Printed Crane Hooks)

Posted on Updated on

According to Huisman engineer Hugo Romer, who led the work on the project at Huisman’s test center in China R&D team research,” the 3D-printed material’s qualities, including strength and fatigue, and examined it for possible anisotropy (different material properties in different dimensional directions). Last year, Huisman successfully load tested the world’s first 3D printed offshore crane hook to 80 tonnes, and its work has now culminated in the first installed 3D-printed crane hook in the world.
Last year the master thesis award went to Huisman R&D Engineer Hugo Romer, together with his graduation professor, Professor Kaminski, with Hugo’s thesis on “Wire & Arc additive manufacturing for offshore appliances”. With this new technology a heavy crane hook has been manufactured, and subsequently tested on its material qualities, among which strength and fatigue, and the possible anisotropy of the material”.
