Case Study - 3D Printed Flexures and Compliant Systems

3D Printed Flexures and Compliant Systems

22-06-2022

Case Study

This case study takes a closer look at the potential of flexible and compliant systems in mechanical engineering and their technological advantage through the use of amorphous alloys in 3D printing, based on the machine element of a solid-state joint itself and the success story of the amorphous component on a TRUMPF machine.

With compliant systems, not only can hinges in the sense of rotating pairs be upgraded in performance compared to the classic rigid-body system, but also prismatic or translational motions or even screw arrangements and rotational motions can be replicated in compliant systems with suitably high-performance material.

Case Study - Sennheisers IE600 Headphone Housings

Amorphous Alloy Headphone Housings for Eternity

24-05-2022

Case Study

What do 3D printing, high-performance audio technology and the new material class of amorphous alloy have in common? The common path from the first samples through quality standards and validation iterations to the final state-of-the-art manufacturing process in additive series production of the IE600 amorphous metal housing.

This is an outstanding advance that enables users and manufacturers to overcome the limits of technology, introduce technology openness into the value chain in a targeted manner and to realize products that exceed the market's portfolio of requirements.

Case Study - From Load Bearing to Load Sharing

From Load Bearing to Load Sharing

03-04-2022

Case Study

How amorphous alloys are changing plate osteosynthesis and what impact this will have on next generation biomedical application.

In Germany, approximately 200,000 distal radius fractures are treated per year. The development of treatment approaches to support this fracture healing has undergone many steps of change. From different treatment techniques to new implant systems. However, it has always been limited by the mechanical and biological properties of the materials used. In sum, treatment by plate osteosynthesis suffers from the limitations of miniaturization and customization. Amorphous metals that can be near-net shape manufactured into specific plates with built-in features using 3D printing and injection molding can enable plate osteosynthesis and other approaches in medical technology to improve less invasive and at the same time more stable and reliable recovery processes.
