The Tungsten LAM femtosecond laser 3D printing system, a 2016 R&D 100 Award winner, supports low and high volume production of complex geometry components, and rapid manufacturing of customized products with regard to various applications such as aerospace, automotive, consumer and healthcare; government & defense, industrial machines, and education and research sectors.
The PolarOnyx Inc. technology combines additive manufacturing (AM) and subtractive manufacturing in one single platform by using one tunable pulsed fiber laser. It significantly reduces the cost and time for 3D metal printing, by eliminating a separate post processing after AM. Femtosecond fiber laser 3D printing system demonstrates unprecedented capability and performance—High temperature materials (such as Tungsten); Manipulating grain size and microstructure to improve mechanical properties; Create fine structures for micro-device manufacturing; Eliminate post processing (annealing, cutting, drilling, polishing, etc.).
Each year for more than 50 years, R&D Magazine has honored the 100 best innovations in research and development. We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 R&D 100 Awards. Innovators with an exceptional product developed between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 should apply. Submissions close April 14, 2017
