igus presents the world’s first tribo-filament for 3D printers

igus presents the world’s first tribo-filament for 3D printers
Plastics specialist igus has developed a new tribo-polymer filament for 3D printers, developed specifically for engineers who wish to create structurally robust prototypes or small batch components for test in real-world applications or solutions. Suitable for use with any 3D printer that has a heated nozzle, print bed and uses ABS filaments, the material is up to 50 times more  resistant to wear and abrasion than products made from conventional 3D printer materials, such as ABS1 and PLA2 .

Closed-loop interface optimises print process

Closed-loop interface optimises print process
After extensive testing, Panasonic have implemented Viscom's closed-loop interface into it's printers and placement machines. The interface, developed by the two companies, provides a closed control loop between solder paste inspection (SPI) and printer. This allows the print process to be inspected and immediately optimised. To automatically correct the printing process, data is sent from the SPI directly to the printer.

Camera series enables highspeed print inspection

Camera series enables highspeed print inspection
A smart camera family, designated the RazerCam series, has been introduced by EVT. The series includes a line scan camera, making the camera suited to 2D and 3D print layout inspection. The camera is suitable for high-speed applications thanks to the free programmable FPGA data being preprocessed in real time, in addition to the integrated ARM Cortex A9 cores.

University of Sheffield develops 3D printed UAV

University of Sheffield develops 3D printed UAV
A 1.5m wide prototype unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has been developed by engineers at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) at the University of Sheffield. Created with a 3D printer, the engineers have claimed that the polymer craft could form the basis of cheap and potentially disposable UAVs that could be built and deployed in remote situations potentially within as little as 24 hours.
