tage in achieving that. Take the EDM machines and DMLS printers, for example. DMLS builds by layering powder on a support surface, which then must be removed once the part is complete. An EDM machine can slice off the support surface cleanly in one pass and only requires 2 mm of support stock between the part and the support shelf. In addition to saving time, this process results in a smoother cut and less waste, as the DMLS printer does not have to print ad- ditional stock that will just be discarded.


Addressing the Additive Gap


In addition to their contract manu- facturing services, Linear also offers contracted AM services, including both staffing and contracted machinery. Through their Center of Excellence


(COE) program, Linear will consign a 3D printing machine to a manufacturer, who will house the machine at their facility. Linear engineers are available for hire to service and monitor the machine. Acquiring such a machine can be costly, especially if a manufacturer does not have experience with additive manufac- turing or experienced personnel. “A COE is where we provide our cus- tomers with a low-risk, turn-key service that includes AM equipment, personnel, maintenance, best practices training and technical support to help them duplicate on their site what we do at Linear every day,” says Bruce Colter, New Busi- ness Development Director, Additive Manufacturing at Linear. Though only a few companies are participating, Linear expects the demand to grow. Linear also offers training in the


areas of rapid prototyping (includ- ing DMLS, selective laser sintering, stereolithography, and fused deposition modeling), manufacturing (including low and high-volume injection molding, tooling tryout), tooling (injection and compression molds, polyurethane foam

tooling, and silicon and hybrid molds), and engineering (black box design, reverse engineering, and data translation). Manu- facturers can also design custom training courses based on their needs, from software applications to design.
