Metal additive manufacturing and vacuum heat treatments

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is any of various processes of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file.
Unlike subtractive manufacturing methods that start with a solid block of material and then cut away the excess to create a finished part, additive manufacturing builds up a part (or features onto parts) layer by layer from geometry described in a 3D design model.

Discover how the additive manufacturing processing of metals makes it possible to design and build lightweight parts in real time and understand potential of heat treatments in vacuum for 3D printed parts.

Save time and money with vacuum furnace maintenance #2

Unexpected breakdown could bring operations to a halt. While there is no arguing with the fact that fixing something as soon as it breaks is important, what many people may not realize is that there are high costs associated with working in reactive mode. On the other hand, a proactive approach keeps your vacuum furnaces serviced and in working order through preventive and predictive maintenance. In particular, predictive maintenance (PdM) can help you make your furnaces more reliable and predictable through continuous monitoring and data analytics for mechanical and electrical conditions, operational efficiency and other performance indicators.
