  • Nanoe launched a new filament for its Zetamix line: Zetamix H13. The Zetamix line already includes zirconia, alumina and stainless steel filaments and is compatible with most standard filament extrusion 3D printers. H13 is a high-temperature resistant steel: It can resist to extreme temperatures without losing its high strength. This…

  • SEM micrographs of metal powder of SB-CoNi-10 used for a EBM and b SLM printing trials. Simple bar geometries have been printed for uniaxial tensile testing c, d in addition to complex geometries such as prototype turbine blades with e internal cooling channels or f thin, over-hanging platforms. IPF maps acquired through EBSD show the grain structure of the as-printed CoNi-base superalloy along the build direction manufactured through g EBM and h SLM. The scale bars for a, b and g, h are 500 μm. The scale bars for c–f are 2 cm.

    Researchers at the University of Santa Barbara and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have discovered a new defect-resistant cobalt-nickle superalloy. Their results were published in the journal Nature.  Stronger materials in the metal AM space promise greater applicability across a range of industries. Aerospace is noted up by these researchers, but…
