From The Economist's Technology Quarterly: This is what some scientists describe as a “golden age” for materials. New, high-performing substances such as exotic alloys and superstrong composites are emerging; “smart” materials can remember their shape, repair themselves or assemble themselves into components. Little structures that change the way something responds to light or sound can be used to turn a material into a “metamaterial” with very different properties... ...When it comes to making chemical bonds, one element, carbon, is in a league of its own; a more or less infinite number of distinct molecules can be made from it. Chemists call these carbon-based molecules organic, and have devoted a whole branch of their subject—inorganic chemistry—to ignoring them. Mr Ceder’s Materials Project sits in that inorganic domain. It has simulated some 60,000 materials, and five years from now should reach 100,000. This will provide what the people working on the project call the “materials genome”: a list of the basic properties—conductivity, hardness, elasticity, ability to absorb other chemicals and so on—of all the compounds anyone might think of. “In ten years someone doing materials design will have all these numbers available to them, and information about how materials will interact,” says Mr Ceder. “Before, none of this really existed. It was all trial and error... ( full article )

Nano Dimension Announces New Collaboration with Tel Aviv University, Enabling 3D Printing of Sensors Using Nickel Nano- Particles
Nickel is a metal with excellent mechanical properties and very high corrosion resistance properties, ideally suited for printing applications. However, when utilizing inks made from nickel nanoparticles for inkjet printing, the main problem is the formation of particle clusters that can clog the printer head nozzles.

Electron beam welding firm utilizes expertise to weld 3D printed components
Diversified Machine Systems completes new division, the Advanced Manufacturing Center, located at the DMS world headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.
SPIE Photonics West, the fields largest photonics gathering of the year, ended with record attendance last week in San Francisco. Hot topics included laser materials processing, brain imaging, and miniaturization of optoelectronic technology.
Laser systems can process nearly all materials, but hard, brittle, transparent materials such as glass, sapphire or ceramic pose a special challenge. At LASYS 2016, users will find a comprehensive range of innovative solutions and a high level of expertise.
The customer needed to cool PVC plastic that would be extruded onto the belt at temperatures of up to 400°F. They had been beta testing a silicone belt that was functional but had a large seam where the two ends of the belt met; this seam left unsightly marks in the finished product.
