Boeing and Thermwood Partner to Demonstrate New 3D Printing Technology. Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners, defense, space and security systems, and service provider of aftermarket support.
Thermwood manufactures both 3 and 5 Axis Machining Centers as well as Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) systems for a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, marine, woodworking, plastics and military/defense.
According to Boeing Research & Technology engineer Michael Matlack,” the use of Thermwood’s additive manufacturing technology in this application provided a significant advantage, saving weeks of time and enabling delivery of the tool before traditional tooling could be fabricated”.
BigRep 3D Printer Reviews.
We always skeptical about the future of 3D printing and manufacturing. Nowadays technology is with the combination of Artificial Intelligence, Nano, Virtual Reality and 3D Printers.
3D printers are speeding up the manufacturing process. We are using 3D, 4D, and 5D printing. We already know parts can be printed, retrieved and installed by a robot.
Patents Assigned to nScrypt, Inc. According to the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Brinkman Lab,” nScrypt’s direct print microextrusion process. The ceramic slurry is pneumatically extruded through a 100-micron diameter ceramic nozzle to build up a 3D printed spiral anode layer”.
This is the good thing for us. We never find comfortable footwear because of certain feet conditions. Custom 3D printed orthotics can help us:)
According to Go 4-D,” 3-D printing becoming a viable option for orthotics, they knew that better technology, better orthotics, and better service, was possible. This is the first company to offer affordable 3-D printed medical orthotics through an efficient, high-tech platform”.
