Pxmalion CoreI3 3D Printer DIY Kit, Auto Leveling, Heatbed, Improved Reprap Prusa i3 Structure, Multiple Colors Printing, Filament Detection, Self-Assembly, 40g PLA Filament Included

IMPROVED I3 STRUCTURE
Pxmalion CoreI3 structure is improved based on the original i3 structure. The 2 Z motion screws are driven by one stepper motor, which eliminates the synchronization issue that occurs in 2-motor designs and improves motion transmission precision and efficiency.

AUTO LEVELING
The function of auto leveling is adopted to make it easier to use and to increase the success rate of shaping. For FDM 3D printers, the key to successful modeling is that the first printed layer adheres uniformly and firmly to the platform properly.

DETECTION EXTRUSION STOPPED MID-PRINT
Sometimes the hot end stops extruding molten filament once the filament runs out. Simply reload a new spool and press the button, then the printing will continue from the place where it was stopped. You can also change to a new color of spool after the previous filament runs out. Create multi-colorful shaped objects becomes much easier.

Arconic (ARNC) and Airbus Ink Aerospace 3D-Printing Deal

Arconic Inc. (ARNC - Free Report) entered into a multi-year cooperative research deal with Airbus to advance metal 3D printing for aircraft manufacturing. The deal combines Arconic’s expertise in metal additive production and metallurgy with Airbus’s qualification and design capabilities.

Per the deal, both companies will build customized parameters and processes to make and qualify large, structural 3D printed components like rib structures and pylon spars up to roughly 1 meter in length.

Arconic will use electron beam high deposition rate technology to 3D print parts, which is suitable for producing larger aerospace components as it prints up to one hundred times faster than technologies used for smaller and more intricate parts. Moreover, the company will also exhibit the benefits of its proprietary Ampliforge process, which combines additive and traditional manufacturing. Arconic will utilize its additive and advanced manufacturing facilities in Cleveland, OH and at the Arconic Technology Center outside Pittsburgh, PA.

Arconic’s comprehensive capabilities and supply chain management experience are helping the company to grow its partnership with Airbus. Airbus achieved a breakthrough in 3D printing last September which involves a 3D printed titanium bracket installed on the A350 XWB series of Airbus commercial aircraft. Arconic is making these titanium brackets utilizing laser powder bed technologies at its additive manufacturing facility in Austin, TX.

In 2016, Arconic declared three deals with Airbus under which it had agreed to 3D print titanium and nickel airframe components, including fuselage and engine pylon components. The agreements established Arconic as an innovation partner of Airbus in the rapidly growing metal 3D printing space.

Arconic’s shares have declined 3.7% in the past three months underperforming the industry’s 3.4% growth.


 

Arconic logged profit, as reported, of $119 million or 22 cents per share for the third quarter of 2017, down from $166 million or 33 cents a year ago. The results in the reported quarter include special items including restructuring charges. Barring one-time items, earnings came in at 25 cents per share for the quarter. Results lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 27 cents.

The company reported revenues of $3,236 million, up around 3% year over year. Sales topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3,129 million. Revenues were driven by improved volumes across all segments and higher aluminum prices.

Arconic reaffirmed its full-year adjusted earnings guidance of $1.15-$1.20 per share. However, the company updated its revenue and capital expenditure outlook for 2017.

The company now sees revenues for 2017 in the range of $12.6-$12.8 billion (up from $12.3-$12.7 billion expected earlier). Arconic now expects capital expenditure to be roughly $600 million, compared with its prior view of up to $650 million.

Zacks Rank & Stocks to Consider

Arconic currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Some better-ranked stocks in the basic materials space are ArcelorMittal (MT - Free Report) , Westlake Chemical Corporation (WLK - Free Report) and Kronos Worldwide Inc. (KRO - Free Report) . All three stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks Rank #1 stocks here.

Flam3D launches 'Family of the Future' concept at formnext powered by TCT

Additive manufacturing association, Flam3D launched its ‘Family of the Future’ project at formnext powered by TCT.

With contributions from 30 companies, the ‘Family of the Future’ is a conceptual representation of a woman, man and child, boasting more than 90 3D printed items between them. Comprising of printed electronics, ceramics and metals parts, the three mannequins are on show at Flam3D’s booth at the Frankfurt-based trade show. The mannequins themselves are made from plain carbon tubes, joined together by 3D printed connector structures. They have then been kitted with an array of 3D printed prostheses, medical devices, and fashion accessories.

The goal of the project is to show the capabilities of 3D printing, and how it can impact all facets of life, from work to play, and our personal tastes to our health. Additionally, the set-up at Flam3D’s stand was designed to demonstrate the strength of cooperation and co-creation. The association claims its ecosystem where partners actively link up in value chains is its unique selling proposition. Among others, Materialise, Atlas Copco and Bodycote contributed various 3D printed parts to the concept.

Materialise is a founding member of Flam3D, and CEO and TCT Hall of Famer, Fried Vancraen co-presented the press conference, alongside Flam3D Director, Kris Binon.

“At Materialise we are very proud,” Vancraen told TCT. “The concept of family was chosen as a general theme because, in the end, our mission is to create a better and healthier world. And a better world is one where people can be more happy. Many studies show that family is the first factor of happiness. It’s even more important than your personal health. That makes it so meaningful that Flam3D is working on this topic.”

Binon meanwhile emphasised the association’s aim to promote 3D printing, and to drive innovation. Flam3D not only highlights the capabilities of 3D printing, but also helps potential users find the right source for their needs.

“It’s all about information and inspiration,” said Kris Binon from Flam3D. “We noticed there’s still a huge need for information on Additive Manufacturing. In fact, it’s one of the main inhibitors for the technology to fully break through.”. He adds: “at the same time, there’s a need for inspiration: with an image saying more than a thousand words, we hope the images of the 90+ printed parts will give people lots of ideas on how to apply 3D-printing in their own work environment.”

Flam3D is showcasing the ‘Family of the Future’ concept in Hall 3.1, C68 at formnext powered by TCT.

UnionTech Brings 3D Printing Innovation to 2017 formnext

Pin It

This week brings together thousands of exhibitors and visitors at the 2017 formnext tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany. This event is the leading trade fair for additive manufacturing and provides a platform for both household names and up and coming innovators to showcase their products and exchange ideas. One such exhibitor, UnionTech, hopes to further reach out to demonstrate the potential present in their marriage of stereolithography and established manufacturing technologies.

Stereolithography, which was first commercialized in 1988, is an additive manufacturing process designed to convert computer models into physical objects without the use of traditional manufacturing methods such as machining. This process involves the use of an ultraviolet laser on materials specifically designed to harden as the laser is applied and layers of material are built up. There are an increasing number of companies producing machines that utilize such a process as the mechanism for creation.

One such company is UnionTech, which has been around since their debut in China in 2000 and has since gone on to make a name for themselves worldwide. The core of their philosophy has been to create affordable stereolithography machines in a culture of open source sharing, while maintaining a firm commitment to those machines’ abilities to produce prints known for their accuracy, excellent feature resolution, and full density, smooth surfaces. As such, they offer four stereolithographic 3D printers, all with commercial and production level capabilities: the Pilot SC, RSPro450, RSPro600, and RSPro800.

Investment cast

In their booth at formnext, located at Stand C14 in Hall 3.1, they will have on display a variety of applications improved or enabled by an open design philosophy of equipment, materials and software. For example, they will showcase their capabilities in the area of investment casting, injection mold tooling, and metal clad composites.

Investment casting traditionally is a type of lost wax casting in which a pattern is created in wax and then coated with liquid ceramic. Once the ceramic coating has hardened, the wax is melted away leaving a ceramic material with an internal geometry appropriate for casting. With UnionTech’s SL machines, the casting pattern can be created directly and, when produced using Materialise’s Magics TetraShell module, creates the possibility of replacing the typical honeycomb structure with a fine lattice. Utilizing this process in combination with Somos Element, the latest generation of SL materials, results in improved overall processing.

Also on display will be products created with Somos PerFORM, a third generation filled composite material that increases the performance level of SL printing injection molds with elevated temperature performance. In addition, their capability to print layers as thin as 0.05mm thick creates a product with exceptionally smooth sidewalls, reducing the need for additional finishing.

Finally, the ability of UnionTech’s machines to utilize metal clad composites such as structural nickel plating processes allows them to create objects with mechanical properties not unlike those present when utilizing die cast aluminum or magnesium. According to a statement released by the company:

“Alternate plating strategies create composites with tailored wear surfaces and EMI/RFI shielding characteristics. The range of available UnionTech platform sizes, 250mm x 250mm to 800mm x 800mm, coupled with full density parts with excellent aesthetics opens a wide range of application possibilities including housings, wave guides and mechanical components. The appropriate plating strategy offers a bridge between the performance capability gap of the strongest additive manufactured polymer parts and direct metal.”

This is just one of a large number of innovative exhibitors to be present at this years formnext, which promises to be an exciting opportunity for exhibitors and attendees alike.
