Metal Additive Manufacturing: The Cheaper the Better?

Metal Additive Manufacturing: The Cheaper the Better?

Metal additive manufacturing has seen many trends over recent years including pushing the (build) envelope & deposition rate to higher levels, broadening the materials portfolio, and expanding into new markets. One trend that cannot be overlooked is the number of product launches for low-cost "desktop" variants; the question is will they be successful?

3D Electronics: An Alternative to PCBs?

3D Electronics: An Alternative to PCBs?

Mention an electronic circuit and you are likely to picture a printed circuit board (PCB): a rigid rectangle in a characteristic green color with copper lines and a bewildering array of components soldered onto it. But does adding electronic functionality means using a PCB and thus requires shoehorning a rigid rectangle into the product?

Researchers Create Heart Cells from Stem Cells Using 3D Printing

All humans start out from a single cell which then divides to eventually form the embryo. Depending on the signals sent by their adjacent cells, these divided cells are then developed or differentiated into specific tissues or organs.

9 Materials Science Start-Ups Changing Metal Additive Manufacturing

The metal additive manufacturing market will be negatively impacted by the 2020 pandemic. Despite this short-to-mid-term setback, the industry is forecast to rise and exceed $10Bn within the next 10-years. The emerging and established printer players grab nearly all of the headlines, but most of this forecast annual revenue will be in material sales in which there is great untapped potential.

Blackstone Passes Crucial Milestones for Printed Next Gen Batteries

Blackstone Passes Crucial Milestones for Printed Next Gen Batteries

The battery factories being built today have a weakness - their battery cell production lines only produce one battery cell form factor. These assembly systems are very special and expensive. The manufacturing process of the electrodes is energy-intensive and dangerous solvents are used.

Laser Inversion Enables Multi-Materials 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing--or 3D printing--uses digital manufacturing processes to fabricate components that are light, strong, and require no special tooling to produce. Over the past decade, the field has experienced staggering growth, at a rate of more than 20% per year, printing pieces that range from aircraft components and car parts to medical and dental implants out of metals and engineering polymers.
