Producing sensors with an inkjet printer

Producing sensors with an inkjet printer
Microelectrodes can be used for direct measurement of electrical signals in the brain or heart. These applications require soft materials, however. With existing methods, attaching electrodes to such materials poses significant challenges. A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now succeeded in printing electrodes directly onto several soft substrates. Researchers from TUM and Forschungszentrum Jülich have successfully teamed up to perform inkjet printing onto a gummy bear.

Maximising production efficiency with 3D printed tools

Maximising production efficiency with 3D printed tools
By using 3D printed tools, jigs, and fixtures, Volkswagen Autoeuropa reduced cycle time operation, labour, and the need for reworking, while improving tool ergonomics. Furthermore, they achieve this at a tenth of the usual cost, the company estimated that they were on track to save €325,000 by the end of 2017.

Magnetic 3D-printed structures crawl, roll and jump

Magnetic 3D-printed structures crawl, roll and jump
MIT engineers have created soft, 3D-printed structures whose movements can be controlled with a wave of a magnet, much like marionettes without the strings. The menagerie of structures that can be magnetically manipulated includes a smooth ring that wrinkles up, a long tube that squeezes shut, a sheet that folds itself, and a spider-like 'grabber' that can crawl, roll, jump, and snap together fast enough to catch a passing ball. It can even be directed to wrap itself around a small pill and carry it across a table.

Five technologies that are improving the healthcare system

Five technologies that are improving the healthcare system
  Healthcare has so many applications for the latest technology. Now that Electronic Health Records (EHR) have been implemented in over 95% of hospitals in the incentive programme, it’s easier for hospitals to leverage patient data, implement new technology, and improve patient outcomes.

How is 3D printing revolutionising manufacturing?

How is 3D printing revolutionising manufacturing?
Today we can 3D print almost anything imaginable: from replacement knee joints to autonomous flying aircraft – and even food. Those who once scoffed at 3D printing’s utility are now having to eat their words. In fact, as one industry CEO pointed out, the entire US hearing aid industry converted to 100% additive manufacturing in less than 500 days, and not one company that stuck with traditional manufacturing methods survived.
