3D Printed Replica Shark Fins to Combat Wildlife Trafficking

3D Printed Replica Shark Fins to Combat Wildlife Trafficking

Identifying protected shark species purely from their fins - especially any caught and smuggled illegally - is an enormously challenging task. Knowing this, TRAFFIC has created a set of 3D printed and painted replica fins to assist customs officials and enforcement officers globally in this essential job to help curb the illegal wildlife trade.

Energy Saving Gas Turbines From the 3D Printer

Energy Saving Gas Turbines From the 3D Printer

3D printing has opened up a completely new range of possibilities. One example is the production of novel turbine buckets. However, the 3D printing process often induces internal stress in the components which can in the worst case lead to cracks. Now a research team has succeeded in using neutrons for non-destructive detection of this internal stress - a key achievement for the improvement of the production processes.
