NSWC Panama City Expands Capability With 3-D Metal Printer

PANAMA CITY, Fla. —The Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (AML) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) is taking 3-dimensional (3-D) printing one step further in leading innovation through the recent addition of 3-D metal printing technology. Chuck Self, NSWC PCD AML head, said the addition of the metal 3-D printer is a

3D-Printed Patient-Specific Implants Can Improve Integration of Amputee Prosthetic Devices With Bone

A new study evaluated two additive manufacturing methods for producing either fine or coarse textured titanium implants and compared the strength of bone integration, interlocking, and torque in rats given one or both types of the implants in the distal femurs. The ability to apply this technology to customize implant surface textures and geometries to

RAMBO: Researchers Fire 3D Printed Ammo from 3D Printed Grenade Launcher

Researchers at the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) successfully fired the first grenade created with a 3-D printer from a grenade launcher that was produced the same way. This demonstration shows that additive manufacturing (commonly known as 3-D printing) has a potential future in weapon prototype development, which could allow engineers
