3D Printers and ultrasonic cleaning Fused Deposition Modeling, also known as FDM is one of the most widely used additive manufacturing processes in use today for creating prototype and functional production parts for industry. By depositing layers of molten engineered plastic through a fine tip, parts are created out of thin air from a computer […]
3D printing, otherwise known as “additive manufacturing,” involves “printing” a solid object using a computer-guided device which extrudes a substrate to form the object.
3D Printing is one of today’s hottest technologies, enabling anyone from engineers to enthusiasts to create intricate plastic models of just about anything that can be designed by a computer.
In spite of the growing size of the cell phones in our pocket, the future of technology keeps getting smaller and smaller. While the size of the screens on our mobile devices keeps growing, the intricate electronics on the inside keep getting smaller and more powerful. The shrinking technology is a trend for many other […]
3D printing has made waves as a game-changing innovation that opens up a whole new realm of design and manufacture possibilities for the commercial world. The technology behind the 3D printer allows firms to build full-size parts from a variety of materials without an expensive machining process. Ultrasonic cleaning has an integral place in the […]
Omegasonics, a leading manufacturer of ultrasonic cleaning systems, announced today the introduction of two ultrasonic cleaning units for use with fuse deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing parts. The 1900 BT and the SST4030 utilize precision ultrasonic technology to accurately and methodically remove all support material from 3D prototyped parts, one layer at a time. These […]
Ultrasonic cleaners are a reliable, safe, and effective way to remove mold support from the surfaces of a 3D printed part. Parts manufactured by the 3D printing process can take advantage of ultrasonic cleaners to expedite the cleaning and finishing stages after a part is printed. Very intricate and delicate objects, as well as complex […]
One of the more popular types of 3D printing is known as Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), a process in which a part is built by depositing thin layers of material (usually plastics) starting at the bottom of the part and working toward the top. The printer head stays on the same plane at all times, […]
