Gold is a high-quality hedge hedging tool, favored by investors. Especially in recent years, with the increasing instability of the world economy, gold has become one of the preferred asset allocations of investors because of its functions of hedging and fighting inflation.
Earlier, the worsening situation in Ukraine sent gold prices soaring to a two-year high of $2,070 an ounce. But gold, along with other commodities, fell back last week as conditions changed and bulls took profits, hitting a low of $1,895 an ounce. As of press time, gold was trading at $1,918 an ounce, down 7.9% from its March 8 peak. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the 3D Printing prices.
According to China Business News, Goldman Sachs raised its gold price forecast in early March, considering Asian buyers' gold consumption demand, investment demand and central bank gold purchase demand continue to rise. Three -, six - and 12-month targets were raised to $2,300, $2,500 and $2,500 an ounce, respectively, from $1,950, $2,050 and $2,150. The last time all three accelerated was in 2010-11 when gold prices rose nearly 70%.
The World Gold Council has also noted that global gold demand is at its highest level in nearly two years, which is linked to a recovery in consumption and consumer sentiment to combat inflation.
3D printing is changing almost every industry in the world. It changes the way we design and produce clothing; it changes the way cars are manufactured and delivered, and even enters our kitchens. You may have a 3D printer on your desk.
The additive manufacturing business is growing at a rate of approximately 24% per year, and the worldwide 3D printing market is expected to reach nearly US $ 21 billion. The demand for 3D printing is growing at an alarming rate, driven by the expanding new wave of entrepreneurship and more effective 3D printing materials, equipment, and technology.
We are happy to know that so many companies in the industry are using additive manufacturing. One of these industries may benefit from the 3D building, thereby helping people move from one country to another, to the moon and beyond. As you might guess, this is the aviation industry.
As early as 1989, with the adoptions of emerging technologies, the aerospace industry began to benefit from 3D printing. In the following decades, this technology continued to develop. 3D printing in the aerospace industry may not be as eye-catching as footwear or automobile manufacturing, but changes brought by emerging technologies can eventually help our species colonize new planets.
Like many other industries, 3D printing is attractive because it allows companies to quickly prototype ideas or create fully functional parts at much less cost and less time than standard manufacturing methods. Custom 3D printing will enable engineers to print parts on demand to meet possible design challenges or maintenance work. In short, once complicated and expensive parts will be lighter, more reliable, and faster than ever before, which is an excellent opportunity for the aviation industry.
Additive manufacturing in the aviation industry accounted for 16% of total 3D printing revenue in 2015 and was used to help civil aircraft, new spacecraft, and even satellite production. Today, we will explore some of the most exciting ways in which additive manufacturing has an impact on the aerospace industry.
If you do a 3D printer, you may have spent many hours 3D printing small objects, even rockets? Your standard 3D printer uses a thermoplastic material that melts when it comes in contact with the printer nozzle and immediately cools and solidifies when it touches the printing surface. However, you may not know that 3D printing can also print a variety of materials, including metals. Over the years, the metal additive manufacturing technology has been very mature. The production of expensive metal parts and components is beautiful to NASA and the space programs of private organizations such as SpaceX or Virgin Orbit.
NASA and Virgin Orbit have already begun testing 3D printed rocket combustors. Virgin Orbit uses its resources to launch rockets that usually carry small satellites into space. Recently, Virgin Orbit invited NASA experts to create a 3D printed combustion chamber, a "manufacturing process that combines multiple materials and uses cutting-edge technology. The combustion chamber is regarded as the heart of the rocket engine, where the fuel mixes with the oxidant and explodes.
Virgin Orbit made a rocket combustor using a copper alloy. They used high-pressure liquid oxygen/kerosene as the fuel, and the combustion chamber successfully obtained more than 2,000 pounds of thrust in 24, 60-second test ignitions.
NASA senior engineer Paul Gradl is excited about the project. He said: "Traditionally, it takes months to manufacture, test and deliver conventional combustion chambers. We can greatly reduce this time."
"Additive manufacturing aims to expand and enhance traditional processes. It means new designs and better performance and produces highly durable hardware. Through this partnership, we are further improving this capability."
Shortly, engines produced through additive manufacturing processes can take us to Mars.
TRUNNANO (aka. Luoyang Tongrun Nano Technology Co. Ltd.) is a trusted global chemical material supplier & manufacturer with over 12 years’ experience in providing super high quality chemicals and Nano materials. The 3D printing metal powder produced by our company has high purity, fine particle size and impurity content. Lower, please contact us if necessary.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economies and chemical companies in many countries around the world. Measures such as extending holidays and resuming work were taken to control the development of the epidemic, and the normal operation of some chemical enterprises was also affected to some extent.
TRUNNANO provides high quality 3D Printing with reasonable price. “In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide 3D Printing with competitive price.” said Olina, sales manager of TRUNNANO.
Chemical production is highly dependent on transportation, and the epidemic affects the circulation of people and materials first. Predictably, none of this is rosy. In densely populated areas with large mobility, the situation of epidemic prevention and control becomes more severe in the later stage.
