Preview of 3D Printing at IMTS 2022: A sneak peek into the booths of JEOL USA, Nidec Machine Tool, and FortifyAdditive Manufacturing (AM) is a space that is maturing at an insensate speed—the growth and innovation in materials and technology are staggering. Because of the inherent process of 3D printing, it may allow for a renaissance in the physical design of gears (i.e., integral channels for cooling, lightweighting, and other possibilities) but also holds the potential for gear repairs. Gear Technology spoke with JEOL, Nidec, and Fortify about the technologies they will be on-site to discuss at IMTS 2022.
