3D printing system for multi-material designs
DELO has collaborated with Infotech to help with the production of components with different physical property ranges for 3D printing systems. The core of the new system is a special dispensing unit that can be equipped with up to three different dispensing valves.
Additive manufacturing and 3D printing safety
As additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing technologies continue their rapid penetration across multiple industry sectors, businesses and organisations are being urged to improve their knowledge about the potential health and safety risks posed by the processes, and what can be done to mitigate these.
3D printing and titanium: a life-changing combination
3D printing is delivering customisation options that make it possible to create almost any shape using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. In fact, the possibilities of 3D printing are so gamechanging, it is even possible to create carbon copies of our own skulls. Sandvik’s additive manufacturing and metal powder specialists are exploring the potential of AM in the medical field, and are preparing for the future of medical imp...
Stratasys acquires stereolithography 3D printer provider
Stratasys has announced it has acquired UK-based RP Support (RPS), a provider of industrial stereolithography 3D printers and solutions. RPS’ complementary technology further expands Stratasys’ polymer suite of solutions across the product life cycle, from concept modeling to manufacturing.
New 3D printing medical advances analysed
3D printing offers an efficient method to improve current manufacturing limits across economic sectors such as transport, construction, and medical and dental industries allowing rapid prototyping and on-site production and repairs. Progress in 3D printer development has led to faster, larger, and more accurate printers, but these require more functional materials.
Delta WASP 2040 meets serial production demand
To answer the strong demand of serial production, WASP has announced that it now offers a new approach, giving the possibility to produce small series and allowing fast and cheap product variations with the new customized serial production. The Delta WASP 2040 PRODUCTION is a new automated process for 24h printing of technical materials, introducing the new automatic part removal system.
3D printing system for multi-material designs developed
Infotech has introduced a novel, fully automated 3D printing system designed specifically for printing liquid materials and multi-material structures. Thanks to the parallel operation of several dispensing heads, different materials can be processed in one printing step. Complemented by DELO's high-performance epoxy resins, this enables the production of components with different physical property ranges.
New ABS composite materials for METHOD 3D printers
MakerBot has announced that three new Kimya ABS composite materials by ARMOR have been qualified for MakerBot LABS for the MakerBot METHOD X 3D printer.
Onyx ESD for the electronics manufacturing industry
Markforged has announced the launch of Onyx ESD, a new high-strength composite material for the electronics manufacturing industry. The release of Onyx ESD comes amid growing demand for 3D printing materials that are not only safe for electronics manufacturing, but also produce high-quality and high-strength parts.
Universal charging cable created with 3D printing
One charging cable that will fit all your devices for years? Sounds like a fairy tale? The Australian company Volta, together with an Italian collective Metafora Design, has created a product proving it to be possible. The cable has been designed and printed with the use of Zortrax 3D printing Ecosystem.
