In this edition of Sliced, the 3D Printing Industry news digest, we cover the latest business developments, partnerships, and acquisitions in the additive manufacturing sector. The project could also see BEAMIT work with GE Additive to fine-tune and qualify its M-Line system for aerospace 3D printing, and establish a dedicated division to advance its industry certification. Elsewhere, India-based engineering firm Cyient has announced the installation of a new SLM 280 3D printer at its metal additive manufacturing facility in Jupiter, Florida. Fitted with support from SLM Solutions, the machine has already enabled Cyient to fulfil a tooling order from a large aircraft engine manufacturer, and is said to be a key milestone on its journey to becoming an end-to-end 3D printing provider. “With the second VX4000 in house, we are able to further capitalize on the advantages 3D sand printing has to offer to metal casting,” said Oliver Johnson, President of TEI. “By eliminating the need for tooling and thanks to the large build volume of the 3D printer we can reduce delivery times drastically, which in turn greatly benefits our customers, whether it’s the automotive or aerospace industry.” 3D printing software developer Materialise has published the results of a survey that reveal the size of the potential market for its ‘Phits’ line of additive manufactured insoles.
