Titanium

The world’s first 3D printed brake caliper

Posted on Updated on

The world’s first 3D printed brake caliper.
According to
Volkswagen Group, “The world’s largest 3D printed titanium pressure functional component ever produced on one of the most powerful brake test benches on the market! This is what it looks like when Bugatti prepares its first printed titanium brake caliper for series production.”

Can 3d print brake calipers, can’t take higher frame rates for slow motion footage.

Can you 3d print better emission test.

Looks like 3d printing just reached a new level. That’s insane.

This is nothing new. I´ve seen 3D printed brake calipers in Formula Student cars.

I am pretty sure koenigsegg was faster to produce a functional 3D printed component from titanium. Outrageous.

3d printed… still needs machining or are the brake pistons just gliding on a printed serves…

3D printing is the future of production.

Now lets see what 3D printed Inconel 750 parts can handle! Inconel is the next step level in material from Titanium for these kinds of purposes.

This brake caliper is made in ABS, people with a 3D printer will understand this.

I’d be more impressed if the rotor was 3d printed.

Not sure I would want a 3D printed caliper on my million dollar car.

Cnc machine is like a 3d metal printer , been around for a couple of years , idk I thought brembo and ceika , and all those other big brake kits I thought they had already printed out calipers.

Just because things are 3D printed does not mean they are better.

Just saying, other manufacturers may have tested this idea before. I mean a 3d printed caliper can have lighter weight and better thermal control which is obvious enough for researches to be done. But still, good marketing peace of work. Hope this amazing technology can be used on consumer cars.

How hot was the calliper getting and how much was it deflecting? Mechanical properties are reduced at high temperatures, it’s impressive that it survived the test but I would like to know if it yielded or not and how many high load/temperature cycles it is capable of. It should be ok being Ti.

3d printed car parts are probably normal in the future, imagine if your car breaks down and you have it brought to a mechanic. Today that mechanic has to order the parts which will take at least multiple days, with 3d printed parts it is a matter of hours,

Lockheed Martin’s largest 3D-printed spacecraft

Posted on Updated on

According to Lockheed Martin Space executive vice president Rick Ambrose,” Lockheed Martin’s titanium domes are the largest 3D-printed spacecraft parts.
Lockheed Martin has created its largest piece. This titanium domes to cover the fuel tanks of the satellites. The use of additive manufacturing can help satellites assemble faster and with less wasted materials.
Our largest 3D printed parts to date show we’re committed to a future where we produce satellites twice as fast and at half the cost”.

Warren Buffett Invested in 3D Printing

Posted on Updated on

According to the Yahoo Finance news Mr.Warren Buffett,” Invested in 3D Printing,” The Oracle may have seen growth opportunities the rest of the market was largely overlooking — in combining the leading market positions of Precision Castparts in titanium alloys and technically complex engineered metals with the up-and-coming potential presented by metal 3D printing”.

Precision Castparts would gobble up Atlantic Precision, a start-up in the metal 3D printing space focused on direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The technology fuses metal powdered alloys used in additive manufacturing machines to create complex shapes with fine geometries. What was the reasoning?

Metal alloy leader Allegheny Technologies and General Electric recently created a joint venture to develop and commercialize a manufacturing process for creating melt less titanium alloy powders for metal 3D printing applications…..:)
