Metal 3D Printing Promotes Revolution in Valve Design and Manufacturing
The emergence and mature applications of metal 3D printing technology, as well as intelligent software such as CFD and CAE, are driving and leading new changes in valve design and manufacturing.
New Solutions for Materials Manufacturing Reduce Environmental Impact in Construction
While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.
Purdue researchers test 3D concrete printing system as part of NSF-funded project
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
ICON and Lennar to Build Largest Neighborhood of 3D-printed Homes Codesigned by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group
ICON's 3D printing technology produces resilient, energy-efficient homes faster than conventional construction methods with less waste and more design freedom - keeping construction projects on schedule and on budget.
NREL Enables Affordable Housing by Expanding Beyond Energy Efficiency
When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."
The Use of 3D Printing and Autonomous Equipment in Construction
There are a lot of applications of 3D technology. One of the most promising ones is the use of autonomous equipment and 3D printing in construction. Learn more here about the use of these technologies in the construction industry and how they can develop in the coming years.
Palari Group and Mighty Buildings Announce World's First Community of 3D Printed Zero Net Energy Homes in Rancho Mirage, California
Palari plans to develop the 5-acre parcel into a planned community of 15 eco-friendly homes, built utilizing the 3D-printed panelized Mighty Kit system by Mighty Buildings.
3D-Printed Concrete Could Drastically Change Construction Efficiency
The freeform aspect of 3D printing allows going beyond the rectangular builds that are so common in both modern and historical structures. That means people could eventually see building designs that fascinate and inspire them with their unusual shapes.
LTG Lofts to go Makes 3D Printed Communities a Reality in Partnership with Black Buffalo 3D
These construction printers will enable 3D printing- yes, printing- of entire communities, facilities and offices onsite in a matter of days.
Successful use of Carbon-composite Windform® XT 2.0 and professional 3D printing in the construction of 1P PocketQubes flight-ready
It is the first time that entire PocketQube functional prototypes flight-ready are manufactured using a Carbon-reinforced composite material - Windform® XT 2.0 - and Laser Sintering process.
World's first 3D printed FRP footbridge paves way for circular composites
The circular composite footbridge is made from a fiber reinforced thermoplastic called Arnite® which combines high performance with circularity.
The Largest in the World 3D-printed Building Was Made in Dubai
Before the final printing of the building walls, we conducted several tests on the printing of different constructions to be sure in the performance of all units and compliance with the requirements of maximum height and radius of printing.
SQ4D Builds the World's Largest 3D Printed Home
SQ4D has completed construction of the world's largest permitted 3D printed home. The home is 1900 square feet and took only forty eight hours of print time, over an eight day period. The home was entirely printed and built onsite using less than $6000 in materials.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
