FAKUMA 2021 – Friedrichshafen, Germany

12 – 16 Oct 2021, Friedrichshafen, Germany 27th Fakuma – International trade fair for plastics processing The 27th Fakuma 2021 will be the first major on-site event for the plastics industry in Germany this year.  More than 1900 exhibitors will present their international offerings on the world’s leading technical event for industrial plastics processing. In addition to the issues of injection moulding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing, the industry highlight will also focus above all on the digital transformation and sustainable plastics processing with efficient production.   Fakuma combines practical relevance with outstanding professional competence in a friendly atmosphere, which makes it a unique and highly esteemed industry event that also benefits from its advantageous location in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance where Germany, Austria and Switzerland meet. The live trade fair will demonstrate that cost-effectiveness and sustainability aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive – on the contrary, it will become clear that product quality and processing efficiency are also increasing along with advancing automation. Efficient use of resources also means reducing energy consumption and thus costs as well. Source : https://www.fakuma-messe.de/en/

Why Use a Single Flute End Mill?

by Bob There are a lot of strange beasts out there in the cutting tool world, and a lot of physics that are not obvious. For example, many machinists will know that more flutes means more productivity, but that certain materials, like aluminum, require fewer flutes–usually two or three. If that’s the case, when would it ever make sense to use a single flute end mill? Is there a time when the least number of flutes possible is a good idea? In a word, “Yes!” Let’s talk about why. The reason we use fewer flutes in some materials has to do with the behavior of chips inthose materials. Simply put, aluminum creates bigger chips, all other things being equal. This has to do with the way the material curls as well as other factors. The space created by the flutes of the endmill is where the chips have to go as they’re being cut. If there is not enough space relative to the volume of the chips, you’re going to have problems and may wind up with a broken cutter. Therefore, we typically dial back the number of flutes for aluminum because it creates a larger volume of flute space

High-tech from Augsburg featured in the new James Bond film

Innovative 3D printing technology from Augsburg-based voxeljet is on display in the newest James Bond film Skyfall – more specifically in the scene when James Bond’s car explodes in flames. A total of three Aston Martin DB5 models were created at the company’s service centre; the models double for the now priceless original vehicle from the 1960s in the film’s action scenes. Action scenes in expensive film production such as a James Bond films must look as realistic as possible. For the model builders working behind the scenes, the high demands of film makers translate into more requirements and detail work. Therefore companies such as Propshop Modelmakers Ltd, which specialises in the production of film props, are always on the look-out for trend-setting manufacturing methods. The fact that the British company selected the 3D printing technology of a German provider is a special honour for the Augsburg company. “Of course only state-of-the-art technology is used for a new James Bond film. To be considered a benchmark by the model builders from the Pinewood Studios is evidence of the performance and position of our 3D printing system in terms of global ranking,” says voxeljet CEO Dr. Ingo Ederer. voxeljet is considered

VXC800: Premiere for the world’s first continuous 3D printer

From study to series production readiness With an innovative concept study of the world’s first continuous 3D printer, voxeljet garnered considerable attention at GIFA 2011 – and elicited an outstanding response from the expert audience. Now, the Augsburg-based equipment builder is presenting the brand new VXC800, a 3D continuous printer that has been developed to series production readiness. The machine will celebrate its premiere at EuroMold 2012. “Our presentation of the concept study was so well received that we decided on a rapid implementation of the project. Our development team worked at full speed for an entire year. The result is the VXC800 – the world’s first continuous 3D printer that lays the foundation for a completely new generation of equipment. The building and unpacking process steps now run in parallel, without a need to interrupt the operations of the system – an absolute novelty for the industry,” says Dr. Ingo Ederer, CEO of voxeljet technology. The advantages of this unique concept are clear: The innovative system design allows for hitherto unprecedented performance and flexibility. While the printing process is active on one side of the system, unpacking can take place simultaneously on the other side. All of this can

How 3D Printing works

The Vision, Innovation and Technologies Behind Inkjet 3D Printing Introduction As every designer knows, there’s magic in transforming a great idea into a tangible and useful object you can hold in your hand. It can be a consumer good on a store shelf, a critical component of an industrial machine, or even an early physical prototype that unveils your new idea to the world. Physical prototypes — basic and blocky or wonderfully realized in shape, texture and color — go far beyond drawings or computer models to communicate your vision in a dramatic way. They empower the observer to investigate the product and interact with it rather than simply guess what it might be like. Before the product is ever produced, people can touch it; feel it; turn it left, right and upside down; and look inside. They can test it, operate it and fully evaluate it — long before the finished product is brought to market. Until recently, a quick and affordable physical prototype has been an oxymoron. Obtaining prototypes wasn’t quick. it meant contracting with a fabricator who handcrafted them or used a complicated stereolithography machine. in either case, it took weeks, and it wasn’t affordable. You were
