MIM2021 Keynote Presenter Cobra Golf Sees Demand for 3D Printed Golf Clubs

The KING Supersport-35, a stainless steel Cobra putter printed on an HP Metal Jet sold out the bulk of its limited production run of just under 1000 units in 36 hours.  
With the layer-by-layer manufacturing process of 3D printing, they can create super intricate lattice structures with highly complex geometries to reducing weight and allowing for optimal weight distribution.
 

U.S. Department of Energy Announces $16 Million in Funding for Phase 1 of Ultra-High Temperature Materials Program

The U.S. Department of Energy today announced $16 million in funding for 17 projects as part of Phase 1 of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy’s (ARPA-E) Ultrahigh Temperature Impervious Materials Advancing Turbine Efficiency (ULTIMATE) program. ULTIMATE teams will develop ultrahigh temperature materials for gas turbine use in the aviation and power generation industries.

“Natural gas turbines generate more than a third of the country’s electricity, supplying power to consumers across America,” said ARPA-E Director Lane Genatowski. “ULTIMATE teams will improve the efficiency of the generation sector by developing materials that increase producers’ efficiency and create positive economic benefits for industrial and public consumers nationwide.”
 

GM Opens Additive Industrialization Center Dedicated to AM for the Automotive Sector

General Motors (GM), Detroit, Michigan has announced the opening of its Additive Industrialization Center (AIC), a new 1,400 m2 (15,000 ft2) facility dedicated to Additive Manufacturing for the automotive industry located at the GM Tech Center in Warren, Michigan.

The AIC aims to validate AM technologies and applications, focusing on evolving AM machinery and equipment. GM Ventures and GM R&D are collaborative partners with the AIC, supporting an integrated, enterprising approach to adopting accelerated product development and tooling.
 

University of Waterloo and NRC Collaborate to Drive Adoption of Metal AM

Researchers at the Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing (MSAM) Lab based at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) are collaborating to help Canadian companies capitalize on metal Additive Manufacturing technologies. The partnership is anticipated to run for at least seven years.

“We want to create, in southwestern Ontario, a unique ecosystem to support metal Additive Manufacturing in terms of research and development and to translate competencies to industry partners,” stated Mihaela Vlasea, the associate director of MSAM and a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering at Waterloo.
 

NIST Awards Nearly $4 Million in Grants to Advance Metal AM in US

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA, has awarded nearly $4 million in grants to accelerate the adoption of new measurement methods and standards in order to advance US competitiveness in metal Additive Manufacturing. 
NIST states that with these grants, it is addressing barriers to adoption of Additive Manufacturing, including surface finish and quality issues, dimensional accuracy, fabrication speed, material properties and computational requirements.
