Boosting confidence in new manufacturing technologies

Boosting confidence in new manufacturing technologies
Additive manufacturing, including emerging 3D printing technologies, is booming. Last year an astronaut on the International Space Station used a 3D printer to make a socket wrench in space, hinting at a future when digital code will replace the need to launch specialised tools into orbit. Here on Earth, the Navy is considering applications for additive manufacturing aboard ships, and a commercial aircraft engine company recently announced its first FAA-approved 3D-printed part.

3D printer from KIT spinoff is a 'shooting star'

With its 3D printer for the micrometer scale, the KIT spinoff Nanoscribe has made its way into the final of the competition for the Deutscher Gründerpreis (German Startup Prize) 2015 in the category of ‘Shooting Star’. In the opinion of the jury, the company is one of the most successful German startups of the past years. Among the finalists in the startup category is RESTUBE, a startup of KIT students. Its self-inflatable life buoys may rescue the lives of drowning people.

3D print materials ranging from PLA to chocolate

3D print materials ranging from PLA to chocolate
A crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.com for a foldable 3D printer that can print a variety of materials has been launched by the Maastricht start up, By Flow. Offered with a wide range of easily exchangeable extruders, the Focus can print with standard materials, including as PLA, ABS, wood and nylon, but also with bio-rubber, bronze, ceramics and silicon. The printer can also print edible materials, such as chocolate.

Printing process makes 3D objects glow

Printing process makes 3D objects glow
Conventional ElectroLuminescent (EL) foils can only be bent up to a certain degree and can be easily applied onto flat surfaces. The recent process, developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Franz Binder, now allows for the direct printing of EL layers onto three-dimensional components. Such EL components might be used to enhance safety in buildings in case of power failure.

SPI Lasers explores the 3D printing revolution

3D printing has been around for decades but it didn't really gain traction until the 1990s. Until recently, only a handful of industries used additive manufacturing but that's all about to change. 3D printing is currently one of the hottest and most interesting advancements in technology and has the potential to revolutionise all sorts of industries from automotive and aerospace to electronics and healthcare.

3D printed tubes guide broken nerve endings together

3D printed tubes guide broken nerve endings together
University of Sheffield scientists have succeeded in using a 3D printed guide to help nerves damaged in traumatic incidents repair themselves. The team used the Nerve Guidance Conduit (NGC) device to repair nerve damage in animal models and say the method could help treat many types of traumatic injury. The NGC is a framework of tiny tubes, which guide the damaged nerve ends towards each other so that they can repair naturally.
