    Magical 3D printing technology

    In fact, 3D printing is no longer a strange term, in fact in the mid 1990’s 3D printing technology appeared! What is 3D printing technology? In fact, the latest additive manufacturing devices use technologies such as light-curing and paper-laminated materials. It is basically the same principle as normal printing, where the printer is equipped with a “printing material”, such as a liquid or powder. After being connected to a computer, the layers of ‘print material’ are overlaid in a computer-controlled manner, eventually converting the computer’s blueprint into the real thing. This printing technology is called 3D stereo printing! 3D printing…

    Integrated manufacturing of automotive engine components using 3D printing to reduce weight by 21% and improve powertrain efficiency for mature modern products

    The petrol and diesel engines of modern passenger cars are of all-aluminium design, with cost and weight optimisation using the latest conventional production techniques. The weight-to-power ratio of these engines has increased progressively in recent years, with mass-to-power ratios of around 1.1 kg/kw for 3- and 4-cylinder engines, reflecting the balance between material properties, load distribution and structural use of the engine for a given production boundary condition. This at the same time means that further significant weight reduction is not possible with conventional production techniques.In order to further investigate the potential for continued engine weight reduction in the context…

    Which method is more cost-effective, such as prototype 3D printing or CNC processing?

    During prototype proofing, some products can be made either by CNC processing or by 3D printing. Because CNC processing is relatively complicated and the workload is larger than 3D printing in theory, most customers take it for granted that CNC processing is more expensive than 3D printing. Is this the case? Li Gong, the professional master of precision models, introduced the differences between the two processing methods in detail According to Li, CNC processes need to be programmed and disassembled. Generally, a CNC machine needs 3-4 people, which means a large labor cost. Therefore, the cost of CNC mainly depends…

    3D printing enables mankind to finally say no to oil pollution

    Environmental problems have always been closely related to all mankind. Although countries all over the world have paid more attention to environmental problems in recent years, and some environmental pollution problems have indeed been improved, the situation is still not optimistic. For example, the oil spill, which is a serious pollution to the environment, will do great harm to the environment once it leaks, and the subsequent pollution will last for several years. “I think the reason why the plant surface is super hydrophobic is that it lives on the water surface and needs air to survive,” said researcher Yang…

    How to clean a hot clog in the head of an FDM type 3D printer

    Residues are inevitable for FDM 3D printers for several reasons: small amounts of plastic are scorched by the overheated hot end, causing them to accumulate inside the nozzle; contamination from foreign bodies inside the wire after it has been produced; dust that has fallen on the surface of the wire reel is scorched and accumulates; trash is accidentally discarded into the hot end, etc. As a result FDM 3D printers often suffer from under-extrusion: for no apparent reason, but the extruder is unable to extrude enough material. If the extruder is pushing the wire at this time and the reel…

    The latest technology, industrial status and industrial development of die casting die

    Die casting die is a tool for casting metal parts, a tool for completing the die casting process in a special die casting die forging machine. The basic process of die casting is: the liquid metal is filled into the cavity of the mold at low speed or high speed. The mold has an active cavity surface. It is forged under pressure with the cooling process of the liquid metal, which not only eliminates the shrinkage cavity and porosity defects of the blank, but also makes the internal organization of the blank reach the broken grain of the forged state….
