Producing Quality Metal Parts with Additive Manufacturing

Posted by Larry Somrack on 4/23/20 10:10 AM

The aerospace industry is increasingly adopting metal additive manufacturing (AM) for both flight safety-critical aircraft parts and non-critical flight parts. The approach offers a shorter development cycle, which means products can be developed quicker and design changes easily incorporated. Similar to other 3D-printing methods, metal AM, specifically select laser melting (SLM) and electron-beam melting (EBM), builds up a part layer-by-layer by depositing thin layers of metal powder that are melted with a laser or other thermal source.

Posted by NSL Analytical on 4/17/20 2:25 PM

As a provider of ophthalmic testing services, we're happy to share that after years of work, The Vision Council has successfully won a Proposition 65 Safe Use Determination (SUD) from the State of California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) for exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) from polycarbonate prescription glasses, non-prescription sunglasses, over-the-counter reading glasses, and safety glasses manufactured, distributed, or sold by members of The Vision Council. Essentially, this SUD issuance from the OEHHA concludes that a Proposition 65 warning is not required in these optical products because the amount of BPA is so small that it does not create a health risk.
