Production of amorphous components via additive manufacturing on the way to commercialization

July 26, 2023

Production of amorphous components via additive manufacturing
In recent years, considerable progress has been made in the field of amorphous metals, also known as metallic glasses. Here, new insights were gained into the composition of alloys in order to achieve a better glass forming ability and thus enable larger components. While the first amorphous alloys usually consisted of two elements, the currently most promising amorphous alloys often consist of four to five elements. Occasionally zirconium-based alloys show the best glass-forming ability, with which the largest component dimensions can be realized.

XJDF Building Blocks for the “Printing Industry 4.0”

whitePaper | May 20, 2022

More than almost any other industry, the printing industry has been experiencing an uninterrupted series of trends towards digitization for decades. As a result, this change repeatedly forced established business models to be put to the test and new goals to be defined. In all process stages, from media design to print finishing, production processes have been digitized and automated to an extent that would have seemed almost inconceivable just 25 years ago. The increasing demand for variable content, ever-shorter print runs, and expedited delivery time has been driving this development further, as well as presenting print shop logistics with new tasks. Job management and Production Planning and Control (PPC) are currently being reorganized by the Internet, mobile communications and the transfer of crucial processes to the cloud.
