3D Printing Marks Rolls-Royce’s New Journey

November 5, 2015, Rolls-Royce made its mark in the history of aviation. A milestone had been completed through the first test flight of the largest 3D-printed aero-engine components. Rolls-Royce had finally welcomed the 3D printing – or additive layer manufacturing (ALM) in their industry and is more than ready for aerospace revolution than ever before. The head of Rolls-Royce’s centre, Neil Mantle explained the important details. First, they used an electron or laser beam to melt titanium and complex nickel alloys at 1,400-1,600C. They piled up successive layers 20-100microns thick and each new layer melts as well into the existing surface. They also created the properties of the component at the same time as its shape. It’s the equivalent of...

3D Printing: The Game Changer of the Future

Additive manufacturing, does it sound familiar? Well, this manufacturing process is famously known as 3D printing. Does it sound common now? Have you heard the people around you say, “I’m going to go additively manufacture a new mobile case” or “Let’s 3D print it!” Sounds cool, right? But it will sound cooler if you have the knowledge on what 3D printing is all about.What is additive manufacturing? Surely there would come a time in the future that most people would look back and re-evaluate the manufacturing methods we use today. And probably, they might compare the processes of today to those of the future as simply blacksmithing, old and conventional. However, it is highly interesting as one of our manufacturing...

Life-like Replicas Let Surgeons Practice Surgery Before Real Operation

Surgeons, medical practitioners and the like are the people not only responsible but also dedicated to improving and keeping our lives far from risk and danger. Although, they don’t hold our life, any medical malpractice may cause any patient to danger or may even take away life.There are many stories of medical malpractice that took the lives of the one we love. That is why, the industry has undergone studies to improve and avoid such circumstance.  Surgery is a complex procedure. We all know that. The same with surgeons, they also had the same feeling. Not all operations can be understood on a single instance and must be studied with complete skill and detailed execution. Through the technology of 3D...

The Future of Traditional Manufacturing – 3D Printing Technology

The fast-pacing of the environment because of the rapid change on the industry of technology has caused the change of people’s way of living. From the 90’s to present, we could easily see the impact of technology from then and now. From simple, traditional living to complex, sophisticated and “hi-tech” living. 3D printing technology is the product of continuous effort to simplify living in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. The desire of human to constantly improve life and well-being leads them to the idea of 3D printing technology. The use of 3D printing increases efficiency, reduces waste making it a valuable tool to make manufacturing more sustainable. The application of this technology ranges from medical devices to aerospace, to...
