Additive manufacturing finds a place in the sun

Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, has worked with the Friends of Berkeley Castle to create an additively manufactured sun dial for historic Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, UK. Because sun dials are specific to one latitude and longitude, a bespoke product was essential for the project to be successful. Renishaw used its own additive manufacturing technology to produce a precise final product. The finished sun dial was unveiled at the Friends’ Summer Party in August 2017 and will be displayed in the Castle’s garden on a pedestal.

AM Is Great, But Is 3D Printing Certified for Commercial Flight?

Metro Aerospace has an ingenious microvane product design that delivers SLS thermoplastic 3D printed modifications to the exterior of cargo aircraft to reduce drag and improve fuel consumption by 4%. Emirates Airlines now has 3D printed fire resistant cabin parts that reduce weight of the original part by 9-13% and are produced on-demand, reducing inventory costs and time of aircraft on ground. Airbus Space and Defense has developed the first metal 3D printed radio frequency (RF) filter, tested and validated for use in commercial telecommunications satellites.
