Coming to IFPE is Project AME (Additive Manufactured Excavator), the first fully-functional 3D printed excavator and the first large-scale use of steel in 3D printing. The technology will allow for innovative integration of fluid power with the printed boom having fluid flow passages embedded inside the superstructure. It was also include a printed cooling system which will increase efficiency and reduce weight. The excavator will feature a futuristic cab designed by the student engineering team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
