Wool-Like Material Could be Used in Smart Textiles, Medical Devices

Wool-Like Material Could be Used in Smart Textiles, Medical Devices

Researchers have developed a biocompatible material that can be 3D-printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory. The material is made using keratin, a fibrous protein found in hair, nails and shells. The researchers extracted the keratin from leftover Agora wool used in textile manufacturing.

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing has been on the rise for many years. Predominantly led by the adoption in high value applications like aerospace & defence and medical. The majority of printer processes use a powder feedstock. This is mainly for powder bed fusion but material jetting and binder jetting are also gaining traction (each with different material requirements and economics).
