Composite materials are leading the way for high-performance 3D printed prototypes. In tooling, electronics and automotive industries, businesses require materials that can withstand industrial-grade thermal, tensile and pressural tests. Owens Corning, a leading supplier of glass fiber for composites, has developed the XSTRAND™ line of fiberglass 3D printer filaments to fulfil manufacturing’s demand for functional […]
Wearable tech is the name given to smart electronic devices that can be worn or implanted in the body. An enticing opportunity for innovative tech developers in sports, health, fashion and entertainment, 3D printing is revealing new possibilities for wearable tech such as electronic second skins, and smart fabrics. In the latest research from Massachusetts Institute […]
Slot die coating is a means of adding a thin, uniform film of material to a substrate. It is a widely used method for the manufacturing of electronic devices – including flat screen televisions, printed electronics, lithium-ion batteries and sensors. Up until recently, slot die components were only machined from stainless steel, restricting development and […]
Multifunctional Additive Manufacturing (MFAM) champions the development of single step 3D printing using multiple materials. Due to its nature, MFAM is ideally suited to the fabrication of electronic components, as they typically require step by step assembly of conductive and non-conductive parts. Researchers at the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) are leading […]
In 2015, leading chemicals company Wacker Chemie introduced its 3D printing solution for silicones as the trademark ACEO brand. Using on a Drop-on-Demand inkjet approach, the technology presented the ability to design “impossible objects” in silicone for the first time. Two years later, ACEO has introduced multimaterial capabilities to its proprietary silicone solution. Dr. Bernd Pachaly, […]
