This news round-up gathers the latest projects and milestones at BAE Systems, FELIXprinters and Alloyed.
BAE Systems increases its production portfolio
BAE Systems has installed another Stratasys F900 3D Printer to its manufacturing site in Samlesbury, UK. That’s the fourth machine installed by the defence, security, and aerospace specialist. In an effort to reduce costs and improve production agility, the company is preparing a “Factory of the Future” initiative, which aims to integrate full connectivity and improve the way operators will take advantage of the latest advances in technology.
As a reminder, the F900 3D printer allows for further tooling applications with new materials including carbon-fiber-filled FDM Nylon 12CF material, which is used to create robust yet lightweight repair and development tools for the production line.
BAE Systems has already been able to identify traditionally manufactured applications that can be enhanced, or in some cases replaced, with high-performance 3D printing materials.
FELIXprinters is now an authorized OEM vendor in the USA
FELIXprinters’ products are officially on US Government contract Schedule 36 3D Products and Services Team One Contract #GS-03F-050GA. They are also now available on GSAadvantage.com for US government procurement. These deals ensure the US government’s access to FELIXprinters’ technology product portfolio of 3D printing platforms and accessories.
It should be noted that the products of the Dutch manufacturer are also available through its resellers network which includes Team One based out of Suwanee, GA and Quincy, CA.“This could help establish FELIXprinters as a prominent player in the US 3D printing sector, and it comes in a year when we have launched two new 3D printers, our BIOprinter (also on federal contract) and an upcoming platform for high temperature printing”, comments Wilgo Feliksdal, co-founder of FELIXprinters.
Alloyed’s scientific work is recognized and led to new brand
Alloyed,a company that has been created from the merger of OxMet Technologies and Betatype late last year, has received the Institute of Physics Business Start-upAward 2020.
The award, submitted by OxMet prior to the merger, is the sign of an excellent scientific work which led to the creation of Alloys By Design (ABD™). The ABD digital platform enables the development of metal material for advanced manufacturing applications. ABD-850AM and ABD-900AM, two alloys designed for AM, have been developed on the platform and are now ready for commercialization. These materials demonstrate the capabilities of the platform for developing custom materials that meet specific requirements from industry.
