In previous posts, we have described what additive manufacturing consists of, what its strong points are and we have also wondered why its impact has not been as big as some have predicted. To be honest, and beginning by thinking about the end, as with any new technology, there were those who predicted a disruptive […]

We started this series of posts on additive manufacturing by asking ourselves if we were on the verge of the next industrial revolution. This does seem to be the case, or so we are led to believe, and every day we hear news of the latest “super-revolutionary” invention related to additive manufacturing: researchers who have […]

IKOR_ Additive Manufacturing

In previous posts we looked at what additive manufacturing is, we wondered if it would be the next industrial revolution and we reviewed the day to day of 3D printing. We pointed out that 3D printing is particularly suited to high-value or small-volume products. Also to produce complex geometries or products that require customisation. Likewise, […]

Since the beginning of the additive manufacturing boom, we have all heard that NASA has sent a 3D printer into space, that skulls have been reconstructed in patients with severe injuries, and that they are now working with human tissue … But 3D printers are now established in the daily activities of businesses, including Ikor, […]

In the previous entry we saw what makes up additive manufacturing. Now we ask ourselves, what challenges will we face with additive manufacturing. Where will additive manufacturing take us? The term “Bits-to-Atoms” sums up the philosophy of additive manufacturing.  We can sum up Bits-to-Atoms by transferring codified information in bits into a real product. Forced […]

Additive manufacturing is a process in which a piece is manufactured by laying down successive layers of material based on a 3D model. Additive manufacturing may be based on different technologies: extrusion (FDM: Fused Deposition Modelling), sintering by laser (SLS:  Selective Laser Sintering), light curing (SLA:  Stereolithography), etc. These technologies are not new, they have […]
