Large Spare Part Printing for the Steel Industry

Through metal 3D printing, ArcelorMittal has been able to print on-demand ready-to-use spare parts. Collaboration with Additive Industries in recent years has resulted in an improvement in process performance and quality. This outcome has enabled ArcelorMittal to print large and challenging components for its facilities. "In 2017, ArcelorMittal and Additive Industries joined forces to explore the opportunities of 3D metal printing for the steel industry using one of the largest 4-laser 3D metal printing systems available on the market:...

Laser Cutting Machine for Material up to 8 Ft. Wide

Bystronic's ByStar Fiber XL is available in two formats, 6225 and 8025. Users can process material 8' wide and in 20' or 26' lengths. This increases the machine's productivity because large metal sheets allow the cut parts to be nested more efficiently, while also reducing undesirable raw material remnants. In addition, large parts can be processed without repositioning. Bystronic BySoft 7 software supports the user in this process with intelligent nesting algorithms. The new ByStar Fiber XL can be equipped with the Fiber 3000, 4000, 6000, ...

Adaptive Tool Monitoring System

Caron Engineering has announced a major update release of its Tool Monitoring Adaptive Control system, TMAC version 3.0. TMAC is a real-time tool wear detection system that uses high-precision, multi-range sensors to determine if a tool is worn or broken. "Caron Engineering sensors are 10x more sensitive than other sensors on the market, allowing TMAC to cover a wider range of tools. TMAC has a separate high-speed processor that collects data at 200 times per second, and directly interfaces with any CNC control, to react instantly to w...
