Five Ways to Improve Aluminum Die Casting Part Quality

Monday July 16, 2018

Recognized for being incredibly lightweight and durable, aluminum is one of the most popular materials used in the production of functional parts and prototypes. It also offers impeccable corrosion resistance, thermal and electrical conductivity, and also retains dimensional stability even in high temperatures and harsh environments.      Since this particular metal has such a […] Read More

Everything You Need to Know About the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Process and How it Improves Manufacturing Reliability

Thursday July 5, 2018

When it comes to manufacturing use-end parts and functional prototypes, it’s extremely important that the physical dimensions and geometric characteristics of the object match that of the 3D model. Even if a measurement is just slightly off, it can jeopardize the entire production process and set you back to square one. That’s why 3ERP offers […] Read More

5 ways 3D Printing is Changing The Automotive Industry

Saturday June 23, 2018

Additive manufacturing, otherwise known as 3D printing, is beginning to make its mark on a wide range of industries, from medical device manufacturing to aerospace.   One of the biggest beneficiaries of additive, however, is the automotive industry, in which car manufacturers are using 3D printing to prototype components, create libraries of spare and customized […] Read More

Creating Sports Equipment with On-Demand Manufacturing

Tuesday July 10, 2018

Whatever your sport — be it running, football, tennis, cycling, swimming or something else — proper equipment can always help improve performance. Even in a relatively basic sport like running, possessing equipment like a technologically optimized pair of shoes and a breathable outfit can be the difference between winning and losing. On the other end […] Read More

Everything You Need to Know About Anodizing Aluminum

Friday June 29, 2018

When you’re in need of metal prototypes or parts with superior mechanical properties and specialized aesthetic design, anodizing aluminum is an excellent option. The anodizing process forms a layer of oxide on a metal part, effectively increasing corrosion resistance, and also enhancing visual qualities and keeping the surface from being scratched.   Anodizing aluminum is […] Read More

How 4-axis and 5-axis CNC can produce complex parts

Wednesday May 30, 2018

CNC machining has changed the world of manufacturing. While milling machines — devices that use rotary cutters to cut material away from an unshaped “workpiece” — have existed since the nineteenth century, the emergence of CNC (computer numerical control) technology in the mid-twentieth century has made machining much faster and more accurate.   Today’s CNC […] Read More
