On December 3rd, CTO Dr. Ulrik Beste held a presentation at the annual AM-day in Kista, Stockholm. The topic was the purpose of using and manufacturing in Vibenite® wear resistant materials. He also presented the first public results of the new material Vibenite®5. Examples of cutting tools usage and a glance into tools for aluminium metal die casting was also featured.
The experiences from the area of Additive Manufacturing are, among others:
- Clients who can provide 3D/CAD drawings usually do not have drawings that include measurement tolerances, and the ones with such drawings usually do not have 3D/CAD drawings to provide.
- At the time being, there should be less focus on technology and more focus on material characteristics.
- To fully utilise the AM potential, greater knowledge about the AM
technology, materials and processing is needed.
