Standardization of 3D Printing

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT), Aachen, Germany, has received an award for decades of development in the field of Additive Manufacturing: The institute won a competition conducted by ASTM International and is now working on a project towards standardization of machine condition monitoring in laser beam powder bed fusion (LB-PBF). It is focusing on selecting and qualifying imaging sensor technology that can be used to specifically monitor the condition of LB-PBF systems. The institute will derive cost-reducing recommendations for end users from these data.

Undergrad Designs Metal AM Adjustable Golf Putter

Caroline Means, an undergraduate in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, has been working on a metal AM project that could make it easier to experiment with golf putters. The project’s goal is to allow golfers to adjust parts of their club to find a better stroke, rather than having to buy a new club. It also could help equipment manufacturers reimagine their prototyping and design process.
