Routes to 3D electronics: assessment of technologies
Metallization of 3D surfaces is a growing field with diverse applications. In this article, Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Research Director at IDTechEx, will briefly discuss some techniques and applications for 3D electronics.
Steering specialist invests in 3D scanning arm
Coventry-based steering system specialist, Pailton Engineering has added to its quality assurance (QA) equipment with the addition of an Absolute Arm 7-axis with RS5 laser 3D scanning arm manufactured by Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.
Cost-effective 3D printer for enterprises
Unleashing the power of 3D printed realism to a broader range of product designers and enterprise shops, Stratasys has unveiled the new J826 3D Printer at 3DEXPERIENCE World. At about half the price of other J8-series PolyJet printers, the J826 combines part realism and productivity, including full PANTONE-Validated colour and multi-material 3D printing.
Transformative 3D printing approach from biology
Engineers need to get more creative in their approach to design and additive manufacturing (AM) systems, by taking inspiration from the way humans grow and develop, say researchers at the University of Birmingham.
3D prototype of compute element for exascale
The European ExaNoDe project has built a compute node prototype paving the way to exascale, combining 3DIC with multi-chip-module integration technologies, heterogeneous compute elements with Arm cores and FPGA acceleration and the UNIMEM memory system, all powered by a high-performance, high-productivity software stack.
3D printer installed to produce ceramic medical models
XJet has installed a Carmel 1400 AM system at the KU Leuven University in Belgium. The installation marks the first system at an academic institution in Europe and it will be used for university research programs and for development of AM medical opportunities in the region.
3D printed parts help get the wheels in motion
Wheelchairs are a wonderful brainchild, though no one is quite sure when it was first invented. The first one on record was made for Phillip II of Spain in towards the end of the 1500s. Since then, incremental developments have been made but the basic design (except for specialised sports wheelchairs) remains the same.
3D printing on the threshold of mass production
Industrial 3D printing has now become an integral part of metalworking. EMO Hannover 2019 is reflecting this development by launching a compact new section to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in this field. Service providers, machine and tool manufacturers as well as software providers will be presenting their latest innovations in the 300m2 additive manufacturing circle show area.
European healthcare 3D printing market to gain $650m
According to the Graphical Research new growth forecast report titled Europe Healthcare 3D Printing Market is estimated to exceed $650m by 2024. Europe healthcare 3D printing market is primarily driven by increasing awareness regarding different applications of 3D printing technology in the healthcare industry. Adoption of 3D printing in tissue engineering, bioprinting as well as for burns and injuries is increasing over the recent years.
Versatile range of 3D printers arrives in Europe
Ultimaker 3D printers are now available in Europe from Farnell. The 3D printers help users bring prototypes and functional models to life in hours instead of weeks. Engineered to perform, the Ultimaker 2+ is reliable, efficient and user-friendly.
