TCT 26th September
Yesterday, September 26th, our additive team made the trip over to the TCT show for the second time in as many years. Visiting the show is well worth the time for anyone interested in Additive Manufacturing as everyone from the largest OEM’s to start-ups show up.
On the AM side of things, there was a great mixture of the stalwarts of the industry, such as EOS (https://www.eos.info/en), with the new and rising companies, such as Carbon 3D (https://www.carbon3d.com/ ). Companies such as these are providing solutions for industry in an increasingly competitive space as shown by the volume of technologies on display.

From a technical standpoint, there appears to be a number of trends creeping into the fray. One of which is the noticeable shift in the emerging metal technologies. It can be seen in how the newer technologies are competing for business in the industries not typically served by the like of DMLS etc. What has enabled this change is that of the application of Metal Injection Moulding(https://www.dynacast.com/the-mim-process) principles to AM. The MIM materials and principles has been mixed with several AM techniques, such as Vat TCT 26th September

The MIM materials and principles have been mixed with several AM techniques, such as Vat Photopolymerisation, Material, Extrusion and Binder Jetting. For companies creating lower value metallic goods, this will come as good new given the current cost of introducing other techniques into production.
