Vienna Researchers 3D Print Placenta Barrier on a Chip

Modelling and simulation is just one of the fields that bioprinting has given a boost to. Researchers often create artificial test models to see how biological systems interact with each other, from cell tissue to medicines. Now, researchers in Vienna are taking modelling even further by reproducing the placental barrier to investigate prenatal functions, and […]

AFPALM Technology Combines 3D Printing With Fiber Placement

Lightweight composites structures are a big deal for many industries such as construction and eco-friendly landscaping. While these are pretty useful materials, current methods have certain downsides. For example, automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) can create parts with low mechanical properties and gaps in the structure. However, AFPALM technology presents a means […]
