Security Comes Full Circle: Avnet Advances IoT Security with Azure Sphere Starter Kit

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) is adding to its additive manufacturing
capabilities by investing in a new, high-precision 3D metal printing
technology called binder jet. This investment is just the next step in
Cummins’ plan to revolutionize its manufacturing processes and
accelerate the company’s trajectory toward scaled production in additive

Binder jetting is a technology where a print head moves across a bed of
powder and selectively deposits a liquid binding agent in the shape of
the section, bonding these areas together to form a solid part one layer
at a time. Depending on complexity of the part or component, the
technology can print 60 to 100 times faster than laser-based printing

Cummins’ additive manufacturing strategy is part of the company’s
implementation of Industry 4.0, the trend of automation, cloud computing
and data-driven technology that some call the “fourth industrial
revolution.” The company is initially focusing on printing low-volume
parts as it studies how best to use 3D technology in higher volume

“By investing in 3D metal additive technologies from GE Additive, we are
investing in Cummins and our customers,” said Tim Millwood, Vice
President of Global Manufacturing at Cummins Inc. “This technology has
the potential to provide our customers with a quicker, lower-cost
production method that ultimately uses less energy, which means we can
better serve our customers and reduce our environmental impact.”

Cummins recently sold its first additively manufactured metal part – a
low-volume bracket without a current supplier – printed on a GE Additive
Concept Laser M2, moving it a significant step closer to fulfilling the potential
of additive manufacturing in production
. With the addition of binder
jet technology, Cummins will be able to additively manufacture medium-
to large-sized complex parts, reliably, at high throughput and at a
comparatively lower cost.

The company currently has two Concept
Laser M2
DMLM machines; one is installed at the Cummins’ Technical
Center in Columbus, Indiana and the other, along with two other 3D metal
printers, is installed at the large Cummins Research and Development
Center in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. With the addition of GE Additive
Binder Jet printers, Cummins is now able to focus on its strategy for
higher-volume production.

Cummins is a strategic partner for GE Additive, which is quickly scaling
its binder jet technology, first into pilot lines, then into a complete,
industrialized factory solution – expected to be commercially available
in early 2021.

“In early 2019, we launched the beta testing and partner program and
deliberately sought out partners and key customers, like Cummins, who
are committed to mass production,” said Jake Brunsberg, Binder Jet
Product Line Leader. “As Cummins celebrates its 100th year,
it remains steadfast in its commitment to being at the cutting edge of
innovation. Above all, we want to partner with companies whose
businesses and customers will benefit tremendously from binder jet

Cummins’ binder jet machines are located at GE Additive’s lab in
Cincinnati, Ohio. Teams from Cummins will be co-located at the lab to
work on technology development before the machines are relocated to one
of its facilities later this year.
