The GE9X, the largest jet engine in the world developed for Boeing’s next-generation 777X jets, took its maiden flight on the GE flying testbed in March 2018. Discover how its crucial 3D-printed turbine parts were created using Materialise software solutions, and how these same solutions can power certified series manufacturing in Industry 4.0.
More haptic perception, fully integrating with electronic medical records, and talking to patients without the use of screens are just a few reasons discussed at the 3D Printing in Medicine Course as to why hospitals are turning to Point-of-Care 3D Printing. The event, which took place at the M Museum in Leuven, Belgium, on June 13 and 14, 2019, brought together clinicians, medical imaging specialists, engineers, and other experts involved in turning medical imaging data into anatomical models in hospitals to share learnings, findings, and cases to further the field.
Armed with the knowledge of 3D modeling and 3D printing, a background in architecture, and the will to liberate his creative mind, Korean designer Se Yoon Park has created a stunning art installation made up of 3D-printed trees. His work imitates the organic structure of trees and consists of many small geometric elements. Dive into the world of “Light, Darkness, and the Tree”.
Reduced waste, production efficiency and functional gain driven by greater design freedom and flexibility. An increasingly familiar summary of the key benefits afforded by metal 3D printing. Meanwhile, high-volume repeatability, precision surface finishing, particularly in relation to tight tolerances, remain characteristics more closely associated with CNC machining. But what if there was no competition? No ‘either/or’?
Materialise interviews Dr. Adrian Keppler, the CEO of EOS, about what is necessary to make 3D Printing more successful in the future. It’s all about creating an additive mindset. Watch the leadership talk interview.
Dr. Hendrik Schafstall explains what value simulation can bring in Metal 3D Printing, what it means to have simulation integrated within Materialise Magics and what the future of simulation looks like.
Ms. Virginia Palacios, Director of Strategic Customer Engagement in the 3DP Business at HP, shares the key advantages of their multi fusion technology, how the industry can grow, what barriers we need to overcome together to transform the $12 trillion manufacturing industry and to change how the world designs and manufactures.
Materialise e-Stage for Metal is the only software in the world that automates support generation for titanium, stainless steel and aluminum parts. Hannes Brenning, Process Engineer at our metal competence center in Bremen, Germany, was one of the first to try out this revolutionary software.
At this moment, we are preparing the launch of the next version of Materialise Magics software! Our beta program has started and a heterogeneous public of around 100 companies is testing out the new and improved features of Magics22 as we speak.
Interviewing Oliver Edelmann, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing of Concept Laser, now part of the GE Group, who told us about the evolution and challenges of Metal AM and where the industry should focus to prepare the technology for its next big step.
