In dachshunds and Shih Tzu’s, abnormal bone growth can sometimes cause their front paws to point outwards.

Additive redesign of an oil header: Small part – big impact

Comparison of two-part oil header (left) and one-part 3D oil header with improved lubricating action (right). (Photo: Concept Laser GmbH, GEADPR006)Surprising component solutions are not unusual in the world of manufacturing. But the extent to which they are changing our previous view of manufacturing is reflected in a small 3D metal printed part from Bosch in Bamberg. In the assembly of common rail injectors (CRI), a conventionally machined part has been replaced by a metal printed part. The object is a new oil header that wets a thread with oil in order to optimize the subsequent fitting of two components. We saw very clearly what the term redesign by AM really means.
