    New Method Combines 3D Printing with Aluminum Casting for Damage-Tolerant Components

    Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Rice University have developed a new manufacturing method that combines 3D printing with traditional casting in order to produce damage-tolerant components composed of multiple materials. The A356/316L composite components have showed a significantly greater damage tolerance than aluminum alone. “This scalable processing strategy can be used to fulfill specific component functions, giving […]
