Additive Manufacturing—an UpdateWriting about additive manufacturing (AM) and the 3-D printing of gears is somewhat akin to publishing an updated dictionary. A new edition dictionary is literally already out of date before it hits Amazonâ€™s or your local booksellerâ€™s shelves. New words are coined and definitions are updated constantly. So it is with AMâ€”the technology is evolving so quickly that technical papers and other sources of AM information require constant revision.
Heat Treating 3D Printed Materials with Vacuum Technology
To improve 3D printed material and obtain precise mechanical properties, ECM Turquoise vacuum furnace systems easily perform stress relieving to remove residual constraints & disperse tension accumulated during manufacturing. ECM vacuum furnaces are also ideal for: annealing, solution treatment, ageing, brazing, sintering & more. 262-605-4810 www.ecm-usa.com
If we’re all in, we all win.
ARE YOU IN to reconnect with the global manufacturing community? Reserve your spot at this flagship event, showcasing all power transmission technologies: gear, electric, fluid power.

Automate your grinding burn detection with RoboScan
RoboScan S Vertical is designed for the quality control needs of small to medium sized circular symmetrical parts like gears and passenger car shafts. RoboScan S Vertical provides fast and flexible measurements with high repeatability.
DELO and Infotech Collaborate on 3D Printing System
DELO, one of the worldâ€™s leading manufacturers of industrial adhesives for automotive, consumer and industrial electronics applications, has collaborated with Infotech, a Swiss-based company that recently introduced a unique and fully-automated system designed specifically for printing liquid materials and multi-material structures, to help with the production of components with different physical property ranges.
MHI Receives JSME Award for LAMDA AM
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool (MAT) has recently been awarded by JSME (The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers) for achievements in additive manufacturing. The JSME Medal for New Technology was awarded to MAT on March 5th, 2021.
LK Metrology Enhances ALTERA C Accuracy and Speed
CMM manufacturer LK Metrology has designed a new, more efficient air bearing and carrier which are now being fitted as standard to its ALTERAC range of ceramic-bridge, multi-sensor CMMs. By significantly augmenting the pre-load on the structure, stiffness has been uprated without making the guideway thicker, leading to more precise motion control.
