Titanium is a metal with a number of advantages. Both lightweight and mechanically strong, it is also biocompatible and resists corrosion very well. Because of these properties it is a widely used material in high-tech fields such as aeronautics, space exploration and the medical field.

Chinese doctors 3D print a titanium mesh to rebuild half of a mans skull

Titanium 3D printing has many advantages when compared to traditional manufacturing methods. Here is a quick overview:

Complexity of parts: Titanium 3D printing can produce complex shapes that would not otherwise be feasible. This creates many possibilities in terms of design and parts optimisation.

Mechanical properties: Parts printed in titanium retain very good mechanical properties and can be produced in a batch. This eliminates welding steps, which can create impurities and areas of weakness in the metal.

Reduced production time and increased flexibility: 3D printing eliminates several steps in the manufacturing processes and allows parts to be produced in a few hours or days, as appropriate.

Reduced titanium waste: Titanium is an expensive metal and traditional manufacturing methods function by removing material. This generates a lot of wasted material (shavings, etc.) and thus a high cost. Titanium 3D printing therefore reduces waste.

However, the cost of titanium 3D printing remains high. The industry still has a few challenges to overcome to improve this technology, such as reducing the cost of titanium powder.

There are currently many titanium 3D printers on the market. The primary manufacturers of these kinds of printers are Optomec, SLM Solutions, Arcam, 3D Systems and EOS. Here is a list of the main titanium 3D printers on the market, sorted by technology:

EOS Titanium 3D Printers: M 280, M 290, M 400

3D Systems Titanium 3D Printers: ProX 100, ProX 200, ProX 300, ProX 400

3D Printed Camera Gear Adapters for Vintage Lenses

So you want that special retro look for your DSLR images? Look no further. Heres an assortment of 3D printed camera gear and adapters for vintage lenses to modern cameras.

Photography has undergone a massive retro movement in the last few years. Filter photography apps like Instagram or Hipstamatic gained so much in popularity. More and more manufacturers even include vintage and retro looks in their native camera apps. We want our pictures to look like theyve been taken in the 80s, 70s, and 60s: bleached out, aged, and not like theyre snapshots from cameras much more capable.

Even stock photographers who are using high-end cameras and lenses more expensive than cars are equipped with vintage look presets for Photoshop by stock photo agencies. Theyre taking pictures with professional gear with the highest resolutions possible and then are encouraged to make them look like they were made decades ago with cheap consumer cameras and film.

Open Sonnar: 3D Printed DSLR Adapter For a Great Lens

The image style you can achieve with this lens is outstanding. (source: Thingiverse)

This is contrasting the technical development. But its good for the photo enthusiasts who want to achieve stunning pictures with a low budget. Thrift shops and flea markets (or online auction sites) offer a broad range of old glass. In many cases, you get more bang for the buck if you consider going this route rather than buying everything new. Even with smaller, entry-level DSLRs and affordable mirrorless cameras, you can get vintage effects right out of the camera.

The Open Sonnar is a 3D printed adapter using a great lens with an optical formula first developed in 1924. The Carl Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f 1.5 is still a famous lens. Its sought-after by enthusiasts worldwide.

You can get one online for as cheap as 80 bucks. Interestingly, the lens focusing mechanism was original via a thread in the camera, not in the lens as we are used to today.

You can order the3D printed Open Sonnar adapter onlineif you dont own a 3D printer ordownload and print it yourself.

If youre an avid Canon user, you might already be owning a model from Canons mirrorless EOS M lineup. With the3D printed Canon FD to EOS M adapter, using the older lenses that are incompatible with recent Canon DSLRs suddenly is an option again. Fast lenses like the 50mm f 1.4 sell for an average of 55$.

Also available, albeit for their DSLR line-up, is the 3D printedprojector lens to Canon adapter. It was tested with both a Zeiss IKON TALON 1:2.8/ 85mm,  and a Kindermann, 1:2.8 /90mm lens. If you get your hands on old projector lenses, I recommend to at least trying them out for photography also.

Playing in a league by itself, judging by the price (and the image it produces, fans will add) is the Leica Summilux. Youre lucky if you get one in good condition for less than 1000 bucks. No, this is not one digit too much. Made for Leica M-Mount, the Summilux 50mm f 1.4 can also be adapted onto Sonys E-Mount with an adapter.

TheSummilux shieldhides and protects this precious piece of German optical engineering while adding better ergonomics. The added texture makes the lens easier to handle. Also, it fits better on the small mirrorless camera from an aesthetic point of view.

While weve tried to confirm without any doubt that the EOS 7D Mark III is not coming in 2018, we havent done so yet. However, were 80% sure thatll be the case.

The first APS-C DSLR cameras will be three new Rebels next month ahead of CP+. Why are there three Rebels coming? Were thinking each one must have a specific focus, because that is a lot of Rebels in the series, a series that continues to drop in sales.

Were told that an EOS 80D replacement is currently marked for the second half of 2018. The EOS 90D will show further separation from the EOS 77D .  The 90D will receive an all-new sensor to the lineup once it is announced, so that tells us it wont share a sensor with the upcoming Rebels or EOS M50. The camera will also have a new version of DPAF, but were not sure if it will be the first camera in the lineup to receive it. There is no mention of the mythical 4K capability and we dont want to guess either way.

Beyond that, were too far out to have any real idea of how the camera will be specced out.

The 2018 roadmap isnt in focus at all yet, and we seem to be receiving an increase in vague and conflicting information. Were instead waiting for some confirmation from folks we trust and that have a good track record.

Northlight Imageshas uncovered another multi layer sensor patent from the USPTO. This one seems to show a layer of the sensor that actually emits light.

Northlight translation of the image above:

Light comes in through a conventional colour filter and reaches the first conversion layer, where some of it is converted to electrons. Some light goes clean through and reaches a PL (photo-luminescent) layer where some is absorbed and re-emitted (at a different colour). This re-emitted light is detected by a second conversion layer.

OK, so Ive got two output signals for each pixel what advantage does this give? By careful choice of the compounds used (organic and inorganic) for photon detection and photon emission layers it is possible to significantly increase the dynamic range of the pixel as a whole.

For the full breakdown of this one, pleasevisit Northlight Images.

Beyond Canons stellar brand loyalty and brand power, there are a few things that a full frame Canon mirrorless absolutely needs to be successful.

Fstoppersposted an article today outlining what they think it needs, and it pretty much mirrors (doh) what Ive been saying for the last year or so.

The Canon EF lens lineup is the best in the business. No other camera manufacturer has the breadth and depth of lenses, nor the manufacturing power to churn out amazing glass time and time again. This is Canons biggest advantage over other manufacturers and will ensure they take the 1 spot in mirrorless camera sales without much marketing effort.

This is where I think Nikon is going to make a massive mistake if they really do require you to need an adapter to fit F mount glass.

I hate adapters, and I even hate teleconverters. Any extra thingy I have to worry about to use gear is a non starter for me. If I think I have to add a teleconverter to a 500mm lens, then Ill buy a 600mm lens. Thanks to Canon for the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x.

Lens adapters are to solve a unique problem, and I dont mind them if I really have a need to use an FD lens or a Nikon lens on my Canon camera. But if Im using a modern Canon lens, it better fit without an adapter on my modern Canon camera.

Is this really why we want mirrorless cameras? Id argue going too small is actually bad for usability when attaching larger, heavy lenses. Attach a Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II to a Sony A7R with an adapter. Its all sorts of awkward to shoot with and you get odd fatigue in your hands, wrist and forearms. If youre adding a battery grip to your mirroless camera, then youre already admitting you dont care about size and to some degree, weight.

If you remove the mirror and shutter assembly, youre going to naturally reduce weight.

Heres something for you, a Canon EOS Rebel SL2 weighs less than a Sony A7R with a mirror and shutter assembly.  Yes, the build quality is different, but Im sure Canon can come up with something to make a camera with their great durability and amazing weather sealing.

The EVF has to be the best in the business. Period. No skimping on parts and manufacturing here Canon.

Its rare I give my opinion on gear, but Im actually quite opinionated on what Canon needs to do with a full frame professional mirrorless camera.

Head over toFStoppers to read their take, as well asCanon News for their take.

EOS and Anubis 3D Develop 3D Printed End-of-arm for Smarter Packaging

EOS and Anubis 3D Develop 3D Printed End-of-arm for Smarter Packaging

3D Printing Media NetworkNovember 2, 2017

An innovative, industrial, 3D-printed end-of-arm enables Langen Group to lighten the load on their customers robotic packaging line. New robots for the pick-n-pack line were already on order when the major American food producers equipment supplier, Langen Group, began designing the end-of-arm tool that would enable the robots to pick up wrapped, stacked crackers and place them into cardboard boxes. The engineers than ran into a challenge: the tool had to be extremely light. What seemed to be almost impossible turned out to be quite easy by relying on additive manufacturing. Anubis developed a clever solution for the Langen Group using EOS systems.

To achieve maximum speed without upsetting the center of gravity of the robots, the toolplus the weight of the product itself couldnt weigh more than two kilograms. But the largest load of crackers on the line was 1.5 kilos for a ten-pack. That left only 500 grams with which to design the perfect tool. Meeting these requirements would have been impossible with aluminum and sheet metal. To handle a heavier metal tool they would have had to reorder larger robots, which would have been more expensiveand they were also under extreme time constraints, says Anubis president Tharwat Fouad.

Furthermore, the tool needed to be quick-release, quick-connect, so operators could change from one size to another without bolts and nuts adding assembly time. In all, there were two completely different configurations, different shapes and three box sizes consisting of two small boxes at one time and one large box, says Fouad. They wanted a single tool that could handle it all, weigh no more than half a kilo, and they wanted it as soon as possible.

As in case of previous projects, Fouad and his team spent some time looking at the market, evaluating which manufacturing technology would best serve their customers. We found that most of the manufacturers that bought into plastics-based additive manufacturing did so for rapid prototyping, says Fouad. But our reasons were completely different. We envisioned a number of opportunities for functional, end-use components, and felt industrial 3D printing was the best technology for such applications.

Once the decision to pursue additive manufacturing was made, Fouad performed a detailed analysis of the many different types of equipment available before deciding on a FORMIGA P 100 system from EOS. Within a few days of delivery, EOS had us up and running. The system was quite easy to learn. EOS was there with us through it all, to the point where we became experts ourselves on the equipment. Now, several years later, we remain very happy with our decision.

The biggest challenge to additive manufacturing acceptance, Fouad says, is changing decades-old ways of thinking. The conversion from metal to plastic is possible, especially if its done scientifically. You need to focus on part geometry, and throw out traditional concerns over part complexity. EOS technology has no such constraints.

Equally important to Fouads vision of end-use products was material selectionEOS powder-bed fusion technology utilizes engineering-grade polyamides, polystyrenes, thermoplastic elastomers, and polyaryletherketones, for example. The system gives us the ability to build a virtually endless array of parts, using materials that are widely accepted in the industry, Fouad says. It uses a powerful laser paired with precision optics to quickly and accurately produce parts. The laser beam hereby fuses the powder material layer by layer to produce highly complex parts.

The benefits of EOS technology quickly became clear. One of Anubis first successes was an end-of-arm tool for a blow molding application, which Fouad says inspired his team and opened their mind to whats possible with plastic additive manufacturing. Theyve since designed a number of similar tools for injection molding and bottle packaging customers, as well as various brackets and supports, helping Anubis earn a name for itself as an innovator in these and other industries. As a result, the company has since purchased two additional systems from EOS.

I tell people that, unlike traditional manufacturing, complexity is free with additive manufacturing, Fouad says. A designer can come up with all sorts of wild ideas and no one will complain. You can reduce part weight, maintain strength, and deliver nice looking products with greater functionality, in less time and at lower cost than ever before. Its a real manufacturing shift. Tharwat Fouad, President Anubis

In the case of the major American food manufacturer job for Langen Group, instead of a more traditional metal vacuum plate and shroud (which would have taken months to design and manufacture), Anubis designed a lighter, streamlined set of components that provided four times the gripping force of legacy vacuum grippers. It took only a week to additively manufacture, assemble and test the new tool.

The material used for the main vacuum part was nylon 12 (PA 2200 material from EOS), chosen for its flexibility, ability to sustain crash loads, and because it is certified as USP Class VI approved for food contact. The wall thickness of the vacuum cup was between 2 and 3.5 mm and varied from section to section. The parts were designed specifically for industrial 3D printing with the help of a software program that optimizes the design of structures organically, following the lines of the geometry and adjusting the thickness as needed for strength and/or flexibility. The efficiency of the redesigned profile we produced with EOS technology enabled the gripper to suck so well you could actually hang on it with your own weight, says Fouad. Our customer had never seen that level of performance before.

The vacuum grippers were delivered to Langen Group and installed on the newly arrived robots at the food producers plant. To design and produce tooling capable of picking what we wanted, while still staying within the payload constraints of the robot, would have been impossible before, says Langen Group Engineering Manager Robert Husnik. Due to the freedom provided by plastics additive manufacturing, we can now do the impossible.

Comprising everything needed to shoot and print high-resolution photographs, theCanon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera with Inkjet Printer KitfromB&Hbundles the advanced DSLR camera with a PIXMA PRO-100 wireless inkjet printer.

Continuing on in their legacy of powerful workhorse cameras,Canonhas released the5D Mark IV DSLRwhich is an outstanding still photography option and an able 4K-capable video machine. This multimedia maven offers a newly developed 30.4MP full-frame CMOS sensor paired with the DIGIC 6+ image processor in order to balance fine detail and resolution with low-light performance and sensitivity. It is able to work within a native range of ISO 100-32000, which can then be expanded to an impressive ISO 50-102400, for sharp, low-noise images in a variety of conditions. Along with these improvements to image quality, users will enjoy a performance boost across the board with an enhanced AF system, built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and GPS, and much more.

In order to deliver detailed images quickly and effectively the 5D Mark IV leverages the power of the DIGIC 6+ image processor, which can handle up to 7 frames per second during continuous shooting. It also uses a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor to evaluate the scene and subjects for accurate exposures under a variety of different lighting conditions. An improved 61-point High Density Reticular AF furthers the cameras speed by tracking and locking onto subjects quickly and accurately for tack sharp photos. A new AF area select button is now available as well for near immediate access to this setting.

Video benefits from the addition of Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Movie Servo AF to smoothly rack focus during a shot. Shooters can even make use of the 3.2 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD to simply tap to adjust the focus point. Furthermore, now that the camera has DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) video recording at up to 30 fps, users can snag 8.8MP stills from the video for an even faster capture option. Tied into the Dual Pixel sensor architecture is a brand new feature for Canon: Dual Pixel RAW, which allows for fine tuning of certain image parameters, including bokeh shift and focus micro adjustment, after the image is taken.

The body has been further refined for comfort and ease of access, as well as durability and weather resistance. The Canon N3 remote port has been relocated to the front of the camera body and they have added both GPS and Wi-Fi with NFC to make this model a connected camera.

30.4MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6+ Image Processor

In line with previous members of the main 5D series, the Mark IV attempts to balance high resolution with low-light performance with a newly developed 30.4MP full-frame CMOS sensor. This provides a beneficial increase in overall resolution without compromising on sensitivity. Additionally, thanks to the DIGIC 6+ image processor it is paired with, it offers impressive performance within a native range of ISO 100-32000, which can be expanded to ISO 50-102400.

Versatility is key with the 5D, as it needs to be able to tackle landscapes and weddings with equal ease. By using a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor shooters will be able to more comfortably rely on the camera to capture difficult scenes. This sensor also has face detection as well as flicker detection which can ensure proper exposure in less-than-ideal lighting situations. Along with this, the camera offers an improved continuous shooting rate of 7 fps, making it a great option for events and action.High Density Reticular AF and Dual Pixel CMOS AF SystemsEnsuring your subject is tack sharp, the 5D Mark IV incorporates an enhanced High Density Reticular AF system, which offers 61 phase-detect points, with all points sensitive to f/8 and 41 of which are cross-type. The center point can function down to -3 EV for working in extremely dim lighting. Compared to previous versions, this sensor has expanded vertical coverage of 24% on the peripherals and 8% in the center in order to better track and locate subjects in the frame.

In addition to advanced tracking and focusing while using the optical finder for stills, Live View and video can now use Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the actual imaging sensor. This offers about 80% coverage of phase-detection autofocus for faster and more accurate focusing in these modes. It is ideal for video as users will enjoy smoother rack focusing without the downsides normally encountered with contrast-based systems. Also, this works well with the touchscreen functions, allowing shooters to just tap to adjust focus.DCI 4K Video RecordingDesigned for both professional stills shooting and video recording, the 5D Mark IV supports DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution recording at up to 30 fps at 500 Mbps, along with Full HD 1080p shooting at 60 fps and HD 720p at 120 fps for slow motion playback. When recording in-camera, 4K video has 4:2:2 sampling and 8-bit color depth, while Full HD 1080p footage has 4:2:0 sampling. Uncompressed Full HD 1080p video can also be saved via HDMI to an optional external recorder with 4:2:2 color sampling. 4K video is recorded using a central 4096 x 2160 area of the sensor at a 1.74x crop in order to record video with an ideal 1:1 pixel sampling ratio, while Full HD recording makes use of the entire full frame.

Audio can be recorded using the on-board stereo microphone or an optional external mic can also be used via the 3.5mm mic jack. Real time audio monitoring is possible, too, via the 3.5mm headphone jack. The 4K video recording also avails the ability to take 8.8MP still frame grabs during playback on the rear touchscreen and save them as single images.

First implemented here on the 5D Mark IV, Dual Pixel RAW allows photographers to record all the information the sensors unique pixel architecture can deliver, providing a way for fine adjustments to be made after the image is taken. These adjustments include focus fine tuning that can help you ever-so-slightly adjust the focus point to bring out extra details, shift bokeh around for improved composition, and reduce the impact of ghosting on your photos. This requires the use of Canons Digital Photo Professional 4.5 software.

A large 3.2 1.62m-dot Clear View II LCD monitor is available and features an anti-reflective design for bright, vivid image playback and live view shooting, and its touchscreen interface can be used for intuitive touch-to-focus control and adjusting settings in the menus.

A dedicated AF mode selection button located beneath the rear joystick offers another avenue for accessing settings, allowing for fast, intuitive access to commonly changed options.

Dual CompactFlash and SD memory card slots allow you to extend your file saving capabilities by permitting overflow recording or in-camera file type separation while shooting.

An Intelligent Viewfinder II uses a pentaprism design and offers a bright means for viewing. When using the viewfinder, AF points are highlighted in red for greater visibility in low-light conditions, and the finder can also be configured to display a range of other shooting aids, such as an electronic level, grid, flicker detection, white balance, metering mode, AF information, and other settings.

A Mirror Vibration Control System helps to minimize mechanical vibrations in order to better ensure sharpness during long exposures or fast continuous shooting bursts.

A robust magnesium alloy body design is both dust- and weather-sealed to permit working in harsh environments.

A built-in GPS module allows you to geotag imagery in-camera as well as auto time sync with the Universal Time Code via satellites. This module is compatible with American GPS, Russian GLONASS, and Japanese quasi-zenith Michibiki satellites for a wide coverage of support.

Digital Lens Optimizer technology compensates for a range of optical defects from various lenses, including chromatic aberration, distortion, peripheral brightness, and diffraction, and the camera can store lens data in order to avoid having to re-register lenses prior to each use. The camera can handle this process in real time, delivering JPEGs with the corrections already applied.

A built-in intervalometer permits the creation of time lapse imagery and supports recording 1-99 consecutive frames in pre-selected intervals from 1 second to 99 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds. Users can also choose to set the camera to unlimited frames.

Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity enable wireless sharing, control, and image transfer with a compatible smart device as well as the CS100 Connect Station.

Erfurt, 14 May 2014 EOS, the technology and market leader in design-driven, integrated e-manufacturing solutions in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM), will be exhibiting its products at its stand at this years Rapid.Tech, on 14-15 May in Erfurt. At stand 2-301 in Hall 2, the company will be displaying its brand-new EOS M 290 system, the successor to the established and market-leading EOSINT M 280, designed for the tool-free production of high-quality serial components, spare parts and prototypes. With a build volume of 250 mm x 250 mm x 325 mm, the EOS M 290 permits flexible and economic manufacturing of metal components. The system is available now to purchase.

Dr. Adrian Keppler, CMO at EOS stresses, EOS has incorporated proven elements from the M 280 system generation in the new EOS M 290, but at the same time, the EOS M 290 also allows us to set new standards in Additive Manufacturing while expanding our product portfolio for metal applications and extending our innovation leadership in terms of quality management and monitoring. This new system is designed to serve the requirements of our serial-production customers. At the same time, we have also created new optimisation potential in terms of build quality for customers from the prototyping space. Despite all the innovations that have been incorporated in the EOS M 290, its central processing elements have been retained: process chamber, gas stream, process parameters, etc. This ensures constant process behaviour and in turn consistent component quality beyond the EOSINT M 280 and EOS M 290.

Extensive quality management, expanded monitoring functions, EOSTATE

The new EOS M 290 offers extensive monitoring functions both for the system itself and for monitoring the build process. This adds even more extensive quality assurance to the field of Additive Manufacturing. In particular, it makes the system attractive for industrial applications in the aerospace industry as well for medical applications. With the aid of EOSTATE PowderBed, a camera built into the process chamber monitors the powder bed, following powder deposition and exposure, by means of still images. EOSTATE Base ensures the consistent monitoring of a range of parameters, including the position of the Z axis or scanner, laser power, air humidity, temperature and pressure. Finally, EOSTATE LaserMonitoring measures the laser power throughout the entire build period.

Flexible components and extensive accessories

The system is equipped with a 400 Watt laser, which is characterised by its high radiation quality and stability of performance. The EOS M 290 can be operated under an inert (nitrogen) atmosphere or under argon, which permits processing of a great breadth of materials. These include light alloys, stainless and tool-grade steels, and superalloys. The EOS parameter sets ensure that parts can be manufactured with standardised property profiles, resulting in a broad spectrum of applications. As with the previous model, EOS also supplies its EOS M 290 customers with the EOS ParameterEditor, to allow them to modify a range of exposure parameters for themselves. The tool enables customers to develop their own parameters for specific applications on the basis of the EOS parameter sets. These include laser power and exposure speed or strategy. A new version of the Parameter Editor is currently under development, which will also allow modification of layer thickness, inert gas stream, build platform temperature, and skip layers.

High level of user friendliness, optimised process gas management, intuitive software

The EOS M 290 has been rendered even more user friendly thanks to the new EOSYSTEM machine software, which allows intuitive and task-oriented operation of the system via a graphic user interface, which was developed especially for production environments. In addition, an operator assistant is included which guides the user through the program. The new EOSPRINT Desktop Software allows jobs to be prepared and computed directly at the workplace, separately from the build process. The job file can then be transferred through the network to the system, which can then concentrate fully on building the part. Thanks to the availability of offline job preparation, complex parts with large job files can be processed quickly. This in turn improves the flexibility of the application development process.

Process gas management has also been optimised. The EOS M 290 is fitted with an air circulation filter which itself is equipped with an automatic self-cleaning function. This considerably increases the filters operating life, with the result that they require less frequent replacement. It also reduces filter costs.

The solution portfolio for the EOS M 290 also includes data preparation software, component handling devices, and extensive services.

Arcam AB A Very Promising 3D Printer Company

Are you satisfied with the three digit returns from investing into 3D printing companies? Do you already have a long position in Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS), 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) or one of the others? Would you like to add another long position in some other 3D printer company without investing into a direct competitor of the previously mentioned companies? Well here is a suggestion for you: Arcam AB (OTCPK:AMAVF).

Arcam AB is a Swedish 3D printer company that manufactures expensive 3D printers which use titanium as their raw material. Arcams printers are meant for industrial use only and their price tags are around 0.5M-1.1M€. Arcam does not compete directly with the largest players of the field due to major differences in their products. That enables an excellent opportunity to diversify investments in 3D printing industry.

Since the beginning of 2013, Arcams stock price has already gained 30% in value, but it has potential to easily grow an additional 100% during 2013. Read on to find out why.

Figure 1 contains the key information from Arcams website from financial year 2012. Arcams business is growing at a very nice rate, and it has been profitable for three consecutive years (2010 result was $0.3M). Currently Arcam is doing solid business with great future expectations. It has managed to increase its revenue from both printers and consumables (aftermarket sales), order intake, profit margin and its manufacturing capacity. It has very promising views for the year 2013. Arcams equity ratio was 60.2 and ROE 20.1.

The first half of the year is usually more quiet than the second half. The first half of 2012 was no different. The annual result was greatly influenced by the first two quarters with only 4 delivered systems. Due to an order book of 10 systems at the beginning of 2013, the first half will be different this year. The latter half of 2013 may show even greater results than 2H/2012 which in turn may put 1H/2013 in shame but at least the start will be great. If Arcam has to empty its order book faster an expected, it could deliver more systems during Q1/2013 than it delivered during Q1-Q3/2012 (7 systems). This would leave Arcam with an order book of 7 systems, and by delivering them, it could almost match 2012 result during the first half of 2013.

However, the aftermarket sales have been growing constantly, and at the end of 2012, the system sales to aftermarket sales ratio was 70/30. Increasing the aftermarket sales is crucial to get more stable cash flow and decrease the cyclical nature of system sales.

Figure 2 describes my projections how Arcam will manage during 2013. The numbers I have chosen are based roughly on numbers from 2012, based on available information for Q1/2013 and what I estimate the growth could be. During 2012, eight out of fifteen orders were delivered during the last quarter. The first three quarters of the year were quite sluggish, as the number of delivered systems were 2, 2 and 3.

The number for order intake and amount of delivered systems are estimates on how fast Arcam can deliver systems with reasonable delivery time. As you can see, I have used quite conservative numbers for the whole year with only minor growth. I think it is better to play it safe and get positively surprised than the other way around. System sales and revenue are also rough estimates based on the last years numbers. Even with conservative numbers, revenue growth looks great. I have estimated that aftermarket sales will grow conservatively quarter by quarter. EPS is an estimate of how much earnings Arcam could receive from a certain amount of delivered systems. Arcam is expected to improve its profit margin during 2013.

As a part of a strategic alliance with DiSanto Corporation, Arcam will provide an Arcam Q10 Electronic Beam Melting [EBM] system for DiSanto for free. Due to order backlog, I presume it will occur during the second quarter. Q2 EPS, revenue and system sales have been reduced accordingly.

My estimate of delivered systems during 2013 is 30, 100% more than the amount that was delivered during 2012. I have ended up to this conclusion due to 10 times larger order book (from 1 to 10 systems) at the end of 2012 than what it was in 2011. Also a growth in order intake is expected due to growing customer base and increased manufacturing possibilities of additive manufacturing.

I expect Arcams profit margin to increase significantly this year due to economies of scope in both printers and aftermarket sales, but also due to considerably cheaper aluminium as raw material.

Here are some important issues which may very likely affect the future of Arcam.

Arcam has focused on the higher end of 3D printers and to industrial customers only. Its printers are very expensive compared to the consumer devices of around $500. At its printers price range, it has only a few competitors (EOS and ExOne (NASDAQ:XONE)). Arcam has its most important customers in areas of aerospace and orthopedic industries.

Arcam stated that it doubled its manufacturing capacity during Q4 of 2012. In response to my request for information, Arcam stated that the capacity is now around 40 systems per year. It is clear that the company is investing in its business capabilities as it probably expects some growth during 2013.

Arcam has its roots in Sweden, and thus it may encounter some challenges when it tries to expand to larger markets, such as the U.S. Arcam has already some customers in the U.S., but some of them may prefer a local vendor and turn to Arcams competitor ExOne. The sales process for Arcams printers is long. It takes about 6-18 months to complete a deal. Delaying an order or a delivery may have a major impact on the result of an individual quarter.

Arcam does not offer a lower-cost printer in its product range. Arcams current printers are intended to print very precise titanium parts for aerospace and orthopedic industries, and Arcams current Q10 and A2 printers are priced 0.5M-0.85M€ depending on configuration and accessories. Arcam is clearly missing a high-output machine that could be sold in greater numbers for cheaper price. Offering a $50-100k printer to industrial customers would be an enormous positive step. It would bring additional steady cash flow from printers, but aftermarket sales would grow significantly. This would require further expansion of manufacturing capabilities and hiring additional salesforce, but in the long run, this would be very profitable.

At the end of February 2013, Arcam announced that it has formed a strategic alliance with DiSanto Corporation, a private player in the field of orthopedic implants. Arcam will arrange financing to support DiSantos manufacturing capability. As part of the strategic alliance, Arcam has an option to acquire DiSanto in its entirety at any time during the first two years of the alliance. This will enable Arcam to acquire a better foothold in the U.S. orthopedic markets and possibly to move into a new business area with proven success from DiSantos operations. This would also decrease the cyclical nature of Arcams business and provide a bit steadier cash flow. Recently, Arcam introduced a new Arcam Q10 3D printer for orthopedic implants.

The Economist reported about a novel method to produce titanium that reduces the price of titanium by roughly 90%.Arcam uses titanium as raw material in its printers. Titanium is being used in orthopedic products as well as in some airplane parts. The problem is that titanium has been significantly more expensive than aluminium and steel. As the fuel prices are going up and the airplanes must be lighter and stronger than before, titanium will probably replace many aluminium and steel parts in the near future. Affordable titanium may prove to be a major business driver for Arcam. The demand for manufactured titanium parts could grow significantly and thus show more demand for the printers and consumables as well.

Arcam has two research projects which concentrate on how to implement faster (EBM) (FastEBM) technology and higher precision and beam quality (HiResEBM) to its printers. These research projects are funded by the European Unions Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Not only can Arcam fund its research with free money, but it can also network with leading research institutions and customers linked to Arcam. This will help Arcam to improve its products even further and create long lasting relationships with its customers. These research projects will be completed in 2013.

The largest threats to Arcam are companies that manufacture printers for the same uses as Arcam does. One of such companies is EOS. EOS is a private German 3D printer company that competes directly with Arcam. Another company is ExOne, which is gaining momentum in selling industrial grade printers in the U.S. Both of these companies have customers in aerospace and orthopedic industries and may affect Arcams business heavily if one of these companies start gaining market share at a rapid pace.

Arcams business is highly cyclical due to the price of the printers. A tough economic environment may affect sales considerably. On the other hand, as Arcams printers are used for implants, prototyping and airplane parts, a bad economy would not be a total disaster for Arcam.

Chinese competition is not a problem yet, but may very well become an issue in the near future. Chinese companies have proven themselves to be excellent in reverse engineering, and I would be surprised if after two years there is not a fast growing Chinese 3D printer company out there. However, due to the nature of 3D printing business, the Chinese competitors may direct their efforts to the consumer printers.

Arcam has its challenges as well as opportunities, but at the moment, its business looks quite good. It has steady cash flow, a large order book and a promising future. With certain improvements to its product range, Arcam could increase its profits and strengthen its position as a higher-end 3D printer manufacturer.

Arcam is an excellent investment choice for those investors who would like to invest more in 3D printing industry, but who also have burdened themselves with too large single positions in for, example, Stratasys or 3D Systems. Arcam is also an excellent choice if you do not have positions in other 3D printing companies at all. As shown in figure 2, even with only a minor growth Arcam can make some serious profit and thus is a strong buy.

With $1.86 EPS and P/E of 40 (currently P/E is about 85) it would suggest a stock price of $74.4. At the time of writing this, Arcams stock price is $34. This would show a 118% growth. As Arcam is a growth stock, a P/E ratio of 50-60 is not unheard of, resulting in a stock price of $93-$111 (or +173% to +226%). Arcams stock price is already on its way to the top again and it seems now is time to invest.

EOS Eosint M 280 image: An easy-to-use control panel is built into the right side of the Eosint M 280.

The EOS Eosint M 280 uses DMLS, direct metal laser sintering, to print metal into finished, ready-to-use 3D parts. Similar to most industrial 3D printers, the Eosint M 280 has a large build volume, numerous compatible materials and produces high-quality, efficient prints.

Many of the best professional 3D printers utilize additive manufacturing to turn CAD files into tangible objects. The EOS Eosint M 280 uses a slightly different method than many other professional 3D printers as it prints with metal instead of plastics or wax. A high-grade laser melts metal materials that turn into a powder. The melted metal is then extruded into layers until the model is finished. The maximum size you can build is 10 x 10 x 13, which is larger than average for most 3D printers. The Eosint also has a 23 feet per second scan speed, making production very efficient.

Unlike most 3D printers, the Eosint M 280 is a metal 3D printer. Lasers melt certain metals into your designs and products. Light metal alloys such as aluminum, titanium and heavier metals like steel or iron are compatible with the Eosint. Parts printed from metal are much more durable than those printed with plastic, as they are use-end parts, not prototypes.

This large-scale 3D printer is truly a large machine only suited to companies with dedicated space and resources. The Eosint M 280 is about 2,800 pounds and needs at least 16 x 12 x 10 feet of installation space. Reminiscent of computers from the mid-20th century, the Eosint M 280 has a control panel and is equipped with everything youll need to create metal pieces.

For large-scale 3D printing, youll need professional software to create meticulously accurate designs. The included software, EOS RP Tools, along with any CAD program can help you turn STL files into functioning parts and models. The company behind the Eosint, e-Manufacturing, provides customer support and is easy to contact via the online form. From the website, you can also search for service providers by country as well.

The EOS Eosint is one of the best industrial 3D printers for DMLS printing. With various premium metal materials, the Eosint M 280 can provide your company with strong, quality prints.

EOS Unveils Two New Additive Manufacturing Systems: the EOS P 396 and the EOS M 400

EOS Unveils Two New Additive Manufacturing Systems: the EOS P 396 and the EOS M 400

Posted by:John NewmaninIndustrial Additive Manufacturing SystemsManufacturersDecember 4, 2013

The news just keeps rolling out fromEuromold. Additive manufacturing (AM) systems are on the rise, andEOSis adding to the possibilities offered by the technology with the announcement of two new industrial 3D printers. The EOS P 396 works with plastic material, and the EOS M 400 builds in metal.

According to the company, the EOS P 396 offers improvements over older AM systems by increasing material efficiency by up to 30%. Secondary processing times have been reduced thanks to a new point pyrometer and a low wearing, high speed recoater. The new point pyrometer measures the temperature of the powder surface with the intention of improving coating precision. Primary processing times have also been reduced with the introduction of a new, CO2, 70 W laser.

The build envelope of the EOS P 396 measures 340 x 340 x 600 mm (13.4 x 13.4 x 23.6 in.). The new AM system has a build speed of up to 48 mm/h (1.9 in/h), and a top layer thickness of 0.06 mm (0.00236 in). At launch, the materials available for the EOS P 396 will be the plastic materials PA 2200 and PrimePart PLUS (PA 2221), with other materials to follow.

With the presentation of the EOS P 396 at Euromold we are sustaining a leading role in plastics-based additive manufacturing, a position that stands alongside our metals technology, said Adrian Keppler, managing director at EOS. The EOS P 396 seamlessly supersedes our highly successful EOSINT P 395 model in the mid-frame segment. We have made a number of improvements that allow our customers to produce both plastic prototypes and serial parts with an even higher quality and cost efficiency.

Moving on to the metal side, the EOS M 400 offers a modular AM solution with both set-up and process stations, and an automated unpacking station to be launched later next year. The modular concept incorporates an exchangeable frame, including components and residual powder, that may be moved, following the build process, from the process station to the unpacking station.

The EOS M 400 utilizes a 1,000 watt laser to build in metal. Courtesy of EOS.

The EOS M 400 also introduces new monitoring equipment, including a camera integrated into the build chamber to monitor the powder bed, and other instruments to keep track of the position of z axis, laser power, scanner position, humidity, temperature and pressure. As an industrial AM system, the build envelope allows for prints as large as 400 x 400 x 400 mm (15.8 x 15.8 x 15.8 in.), and prints are built with a 1kW Yb-fibre laser.

EOS is pursuing a platform-based strategy for the metal technology and is able to support its customers from the research and development phase, through to series production, said Keppler. The EOS M 400 represents the key to the industrial series utilization of additive manufacturing. The new system supports users not only in the context of its qualification for production, but also in actual manufacturing applications. We wont be drawing the line at a single solution. We will be expanding the platform with successive performance modules.

Below youll find a video concept study from EOS.

Besides 3D printing for medical we now also 3D print for industrial applications

The main topic of this newsletter is3D printing. This production technology is perfect for patient-specific implants in particular, but is in general also ideal for manufacturing complex industrial parts. At Xilloc we have gathered considerable knowledge about 3D printing in polymers (cutting guides), metals (titanium implants) and ceramics (CT-Bone) and we recognized a need in the aerospace and automotive market for similar high-quality parts as we produce for our medical customers.

Therefor we launched anIndustrial Business Unitnext to our existing medical activities. Now, if you you get presented a choice to visit either our medical or industrial website. Be sure to check out ournew industrial website!

Furthermore, we are expanding our medical 3D printing capacity with new 3D printing machines to offer 3D printed (bio)polymers, calcium phosphate bone implants (CT-Bone) and titanium implants.

3D printed CT-Bone implant for zygoma augmentation

Early next year we will start 3D printing personalized ceramic implants to augment the skeleton, called CT-Bone.  CT-Bone is made from calcium phosphate and has a strength comparable to trabecular bone. It is therefore indicated to use for non load-bearing augmentation implants (e.g. to augment the zygoma, the mandible angle, the skull, etc.). It has been demonstrated to be converted into real bone by the patients bone cells. The main advantage of CT-Bone is that it requires no heat treatment (sintering) after 3D printing. Such a heat treatment causes significant shrinkage and reduces the resorbability. Unlike hydroxyapatite, which is non-resorbable, CT-Bone is invaded by bone tissue, bone marrow and bone resorbing osteoclasts. Without the need for sintering, CT-Bone can be designed to perfectly match the patients anatomy and can be accurately 3D printed to fit perfectly, thereby optimizing the bone-implant interface.

Amongst the four machines is the EOS M 400, one of the largest metal machines currently available on the market. Together with Brightlands Chemelot Campus and with the financial support of the Province of Limburg, a wide range of unique 3D printing services are now available. This investment fits in Xillocs ambitious plans for the 3D printing industry. The company is the first to offer industrial 3D printing services in all printable materials:metals, polymers and ceramics.

With these impressive additions, Xilloc has established an advanced manufacturing facility, which also includes state-of-art automated milling machines.

Recently, Xilloc moved toBrightlands Chemelot Campuswhere it has access to 1600 m²; ample space to accommodate its rapid growth and team expansion. For the campus, this is another important step towards the creation of an Additive Manufacturing ecosystem. Earlier this year, Brightlands Materials Center has been established, including investments in PhD capacity for 3D print material technology. The campus is a fast growing hub for 3D printing in the Netherlands and across its borders, with Xilloc as a spearhead.

We developed a new and easy method to resect and reconstruct an intraosseous meningioma in one operation. Using CT imaging, the surgery is planned together with the surgeon and the resection margin is defined. We then create a unique 2-piece cutting guide that allows accurate resection. Following the resection, a perfectly fitting reconstruction implant can be placed in the resected area. This implant is equipped withXSuturefor easy suturing andInterFixfor fast and secure tangential fixation. This procedure allows the resection of such a meningioma and reconstruction in only one surgery instead of two, saving time and money while helping the patient in the most optimal way.

In august, we celebrated our fourth anniversary. We are proud that our surgeons and patients are very satisfied with our patient-specific products and our personal service. We will continue to provide our high quality products to a growing number of surgeons, as well as assist other companies with high quality 3D printed parts to improve and expand their business. To support that, we have expanded our team with several new faces. Checkour facebook pageto meet them!

Xilloc is already actively involved in several funded research projects and is still open to collaborate in funded projects in the field of customized patient care or 3D printing. If you have an idea or project and you would like a passionate SME involved, do not hesitate tocontact us.

EOS-New Balance Uses EOS Industrial 3D-Printing Technology to Additively Manufacture

No two runners are the same. This is especially true for athletes competing at the most elite levels. Their foot-strike patterns, degrees of pronation (the amount a runners foot rolls inward with each step), and braking and propulsion forces are all unique. However, the extent to which most running shoe models vary is rather limited in comparison.

As a result, there are some who believe that personalizing a runners shoes, specifically the spike plate that provides traction on the underside of the shoe, can help these athletes become faster on the track.

A proponent of this trend isNew Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc., best known simply asNew Balance.

Founded in 1908 and based in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, New Balance has global sales over $2 billion. Their more than 4,000 associates embrace innovation across all platforms of the business and continuously explore advanced methods for product design and production.

So its no surprise that New Balance has turned to design-driven manufacturing for 3D printing custom spike plates, based on an individual runners biomechanics and personal inputs, for their elite athletes.

Using a proprietary process to collect race simulation data from Team New Balance runners, the Sports Research Lab then applies advanced algorithms to translate this information into an optimized design that can be additively manufactured on an EOSINT P 395 systemplastic laser-sintering technology fromEOSthat allows designers to produce, or grow, complex geometries that cant be created using traditional manufacturing techniques.

There are so many great things that came out of this process, compared to the methods we used in the past to develop and manufacture products, says Sean Murphy, senior manager of innovation and engineering at New Balance. This is a totally unique situation where we come away with the runners data, generate multiple plates we feel will meet their needs, and actually provide several pairs of track spikes for them to try simultaneously. Its great to be able to have them identify and respond to each different variation that we produce.

Customized Design with the Runner in Mind

Long before the spike plates are additively manufactured, or even designed, New Balances Sports Research Lab collects each runners biomechanical data using a force plate, in-shoe sensors, and a motion-capture system worn by the runner.

The motion-capture system helps determine the relationship of the foot to the force plate, creating a three-dimensional vector recreation of the foot strike (i.e. the impact of each stride). The in-shoe sensors show discrete pressure information over the course of the runners foot strike and how the runners foot interacts with the shoe. When a particular part of the foot exhibits high pressure values, it generally indicates that the associated 3D vector is important to that area of the shoe at that specific moment in time.

We establish a relationship between these high pressures and the corresponding forces to help us create a map of forces relevant to each area of the foot, says Murphy.

A simple example is in the toe area. Generally, when you see high pressure there, it corresponds to a force that is pushing toward the heel to create a propulsive force forward. We use parametric modeling software to process this data and distribute the position of the spike plate traction elements, calculate the orientation and adjust the size of the elements, and incorporate specific runner preferences into the design.

The designer is then responsible for performing the CAD cleanup necessary to create the final product, including touching up model surfaces and making adjustments to accommodate the full-size range of the spike plate. Once the final geometry has been verified, the CAD files are converted to .stl files and uploaded to the EOSINT P 395 system for layer-by-layer manufacturing.

Track-shoe spike plates have three general characteristics that can vary depending on the length of the race the athlete is competing in and their preferences: The fit, stiffness, and design of the plate all impact the comfort and performance of the runner.

Typically, each spike-plate style requires several injection molds for various sizes, all costing thousands of dollars. These molds will run thousands of plates before being retired or replaced, often annually, by a new mold indicating a new model. Currently, the laser-sintered batch sizes produce around four unique plate pairs and take five to six hours to manufacture.

By laser sintering our customized spike plates we can manufacture on demand, fluidly adjust our process to accommodate different sizes and widths, and update designs without the continuing capital investment required by injection molding, says Katherine Petrecca, business manager of New Balance Studio Innovation. The incorporation of the laser-sintered spike plate also allows us to realize a five-percent weight reduction compared to traditionally manufactured versions.

And for a competitive runner, the smallest change in weight can make a significant difference.

The development and production of the custom 3D printed spike plates isnt the only thing that separates these shoes from their off-the-shelf counterparts. While traditional track spikes are commonly made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and polyether block amide (PEBA), New Balance worked with high-performance materials manufacturerAdvanced Laser Materials(ALM; Temple, Tex.), part of the EOS family, to develop a proprietary nylon blend.

We decided to collaborate with ALM on this project because they had experience developing the type of material we were looking for, says Murphy. We had worked with them on a previous prototyping project and the variety of materials, as well as knowledge, that they offered made them the perfect partner.

The spike plates are grown in the EOS system from the custom-blend nylon powder, coupled with tailored laser conditions, and yield maximum engineering properties such as tensile and flex moduli, while minimizing build time.

Post production includes standard processing techniques such as bead blasting (the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine beads at a high pressure without damaging the surface), after which the plates are processed through a proprietary system for aesthetic finishing and coloration.

The Proof is in the Personal Records: One Runners Story

With all the time and energy put into the research and development process, there is still one important question: Does it make a difference in the performance of the runners who wear such customized spike plates?

Kim Conley, a member of Team New Balance and U.S. Olympic runner, thinks so.

After initially coming in to the Sports Research Lab at New Balance for the simulation testing in 2012, Conley first wore her customized spike plates for competition in 2013 at the Mt. SAC Relays (held at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California) and has continued to wear them, especially at such important races as the World Championships.

My shoes are critical to my performance. Theyre the most important piece of equipment I have, says Conley. As a professional runner, you obviously want the most effective and comfortable spike plates for competition. For me, these are the ones New Balance designed based on the curve running data their development team had collected. They provide better traction and less pressure on the outside of my foot, which allows me to focus on my race plan and not worry about my spike plates.

Conley has run personal records (PRs) in both the 3000m (8:44.11) and 5000m (15:08.61) wearing her laser-sintered spike plates. She also wore them at the 2013 World Championships, where she had her best international performance to date.

But what does all this mean for the amateur or recreational runner? While runner-specific spike plates are currently only available for Team New Balance athletes, Petrecca says this will eventually change.

Design-driven additive manufacturing really holds the promise of more on-demand production and more individually customized design, she says. These spike plates are the first step weve taken with our athletes to prove that out. As the material options expand; as our own proficiency with the technology expands; as capacities for additive manufacturing grow, we believe we will be able to bring 3D-printed products, in some format, to the everyday consumer.

And runners wont be the only ones having all the fun. Petrecca notes that there is definitely the opportunity to expand the customization practices developed on the spike-plate project to other sports. However, the repetitive motion of running along the track doesnt always happen in other athletic eventswhere participants are required to quickly change direction, pivot, back-pedal, or shuffle side to sidewhich could present a number of data-collection challenges.

There is still a significant amount of progress that needs to be made in order to get groundbreaking products like this to the consumer, says Petrecca, but seeing these customized plates on the feet of elite athletes is a tangible example of a next generation of products: additively manufactured, performance-customized products that could allow every runner to have a shoe that is uniquely their own.
