Glass Injection Moulding

Glass Injection Moulding

Injection molding is the most important process in the plastics industry and enables the fast and cost-effective production of components in so-called high-throughput in almost any shape and size. Transparent glass could not be molded in this process until now.

Saab Tests 3D Printing for Battlefield Damage Repair

Saab Tests 3D Printing for Battlefield Damage Repair

Saab has successfully conducted the trial which marked the first time an exterior 3D printed part has been flown on a Gripen, rather than internal 3D printed components. The purpose of the trial was to test how additive manufacturing could be used in battlefield damage repair.

3D Printed Porous Carbon Aerogels for Space Exploration

3D Printed Porous Carbon Aerogels for Space Exploration

Exploration of extremely cold environments, from Earth's polar regions to the moon and Mars, requires technology that can rapidly store and deliver electricity at ultralow temperatures. NASA's Perseverance rover, for example, needs heaters to keep the rover's battery system from freezing in Martian temperatures averaging about -81 F (-62 C).

Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

The warmer temperature and blooming flowers signal the arrival of spring. However, worries about respiratory diseases are also on the rise due to fine dust and viruses. The lung, which is vital to breathing, is rather challenging to create artificially for experimental use due to its complex structure and thinness. Recently, a research team has succeeded in producing an artificial lung model using 3D printing.

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

Researchers have designed a new bioink which allows small human-sized airways to be 3D-bioprinted with the help of patient cells for the first time. The 3D-printed constructs are biocompatible and support new blood vessel growth into the transplanted material. This is an important first step towards 3D-printing organs.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?

High-Volume Orders Finally Arrive for the Graphene Industry

For a long time, graphene has been cited as the wonder material that will change the world. The reality has been very different; disillusionment has started to grow as the hype has not translated into revenue. Is the "tipping point" finally approaching?

Opportunities for Additively Manufactured Electronics

Additively manufactured electronics is an emerging approach that takes printed electronics into the third dimension. IDTechEx divides the sector into two aspects: 'fully additive' and 'printing onto 3D surfaces'. Both have multiple application opportunities that IDTechEx believes will develop over the next decade.
