Will Voxeljet's High Speed Sintering Reinvent 3D Printing?

Zacks Equity Research: The HSS technology involves an infrared absorbing ink, that is selectively jetted onto layers of plastic powder, which are then exposed to infrared light. The powder melts under the light and forms functional plastic parts with qualities similar to th

Low-cost Wearables Manufactured by Hybrid 3D Printing

New method combines precision printing of stretchable conductive inks with pick-and-place of electronic components to make flexible, wearable sensors.

New 3D Printing Method Based on Ultrasonic Manipulation Technology

Ultrasonic manipulation uses ultrasonic waves for handling of a wide range of components and materials, which potentially enables the creation of a more versatile 3D printers. Because of the non-contact nature of ultrasonic manipulation, particles and components with very d

Using 3d Printing in Education

Education should look to influence the future. If we provide students with technologies that are able to make seemingly impossible objects, we give them the potential to influence the future with a greater impact.

GE Is Building The World’s Largest ‘Additive’ Machine For 3D Printing Metals

The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machine’s “build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customer’s project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or bett

Europe looks at 3D printing to pursue its industrial renaissance

Jorge Valero for EURACTIV.com: The European Commission backs additive manufacturing as one of the pillars to strengthen its industrial sector and step up efforts to maintain the EU’s global advantage.

Siemens and HP partner to advance 3D printing for product development and industrial production

Building on a longstanding partnership, HP Inc. and Siemens are accelerating 3D printing for industrial production through the creation of a new HP-certified Additive Manufacturing (AM) software module from Siemens.

Laser ultrasound: the future of metal 3D printing?

Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Dutton’s work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.

Defending 3D Printers From Hackers

Charles Q. Choi for IEEE Spectrum: Researchers reveal three methods of verifying that 3d-printed parts have not been compromised by someone hacking the printer itself.

Bitflow Is The Leader In Coaxpress

Bitflow Is The Leader In Coaxpress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
