If the weight of PCD tools is reduced, as a rule significantly higher cutting data can be used. Along with design freedom, the possibility of weight optimisation is one of the crucial advantages offered by 3D printing. Due to the specially developed structures inside the tool, which cannot be manufactured conventionally, the weight can be reduced significantly.

Additive manufacturing, which is much better known to most people as 3D printing, has been in use in plastics engineering for many years. However, the method offers potential for many further applications: architecture, design, medical engineering, packaging or mechanical engineering. The services offered by Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG are specifically geared towards machinery and plant engineering. Thanks to these services, initial samples, prototypes, certified serial parts, spare parts and tools come from a single source from batch size one — a quick and cost-efficient supply process, not just for C-Parts.

SSAB starts a study in Finland for fossil-free steelmaking. In line with the HYBRIT project, SSAB is taking the next step for a completely fossil-free steel value chain. In partnership with Gasum, Neste and St1, SSAB is initiating an Energy4HYBRIT prefeasibility study supported by Business Finland to investigate the use of fossil-free energy sources, primarily biomaterial side-streams, to replace fossil fuels in certain steelmaking processes, for example rolling processes. The Raahe mill will act as SSAB’s pilot.
