Siemens 3D Printed Gas Turbine Blades

The collaboration between Siemens, Material Solutions and EOS demonstrates that 3D metal printing is a reliable and proven technology viable even for “moving” applications, without any compromise. In focus: developing a new turbine blade. The part was developed together with Siemens NX, built on EOS systems and produced by Material Solutions.

Why Multi-Tasking?

Multi-Tasking adds efficiency to every aspect of manufacturing production. Because it enables start-to-finish production of parts that require a multi-axis approach to multiple processes, it cuts production lead times and part costs by eliminating, in many cases, the need for multiple clampings and multiple machines. That same single-setup ease and convenience also increases machining accuracy and part quality because parts stay on one machine rather than moving from one machine to the next involving numerous part setups.

FLSmidth ABON gears up with Mazak and hyperMILL

Successful companies seldom rest on their laurels, and do not shy away from a challenge. Recently FLSmidth ABON found a new challenge in the form of a very critical operation that could not be performed on their existing multi-tasking machines. The reason was not only the extremely complex technology involved but also the lack of a successful precedent in producing dimensionally correct, geometrically true gears of various kinds on a general purpose multi-tasking machine.

What to consider with a tube laser

Tube and pipe fabrication has found a growth in applications with continued advancements in tube technology. Tube lasers continue to get faster while also processing an increased range of materials types and shapes. While fabrication often focuses on flat sheeting material processing, tube and pipe fabrication is also a major player. Here is a quick start guide for what to think about with tube and pipe laser-cutting.
