The Design and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center brings together design and manufacturing expertise and technological resources under one roof to accelerate the launch of innovative products for the healthcare industry.
The Stratasys J750 now delivers additional functionality and versatility for rapid prototyping and tooling applications with the Stratasys PolyJet Agilus30 rubber-like material and Digital ABS Plus engineering-grade material.
HP and Siemens have been partners for many years, but the companies continue to build on the relationship with an eye toward pushing out innovation in additive manufacturing, transforming it from a prototyping technology to a cost-effective production technology.
Researchers at Brown University have demonstrated a 3D-printing technique for fabricating “smart” biomaterials that can respond to stimuli, self-heal, and degrade on demand, paving the way for a number of next-generation medical and other applications.
The system, which can either be a mobile unit or fixed to the shop floor, enables a three-step process that recovers any unused material from the printer, screens it and returns it to the machine for immediate reuse or to a container for storage.
Ultrasonic manipulation could incorporate assembly into additive manufacturing, widening the capabilities of current printers, potentially leading to the creation of a printer that could print and assemble whole devices.
