The round-up of last week’s additive manufacturing news includes collaboration between Oerlikon AM and Airbus for production of complex serial production of antenna clusters; the launch of the world’s first 3D printed tactical weapon by London Defense R&D; the debut of 3DXB GROUP in UAE; research on Programmable 3D Printed Dressing by a scientist at the University of Waterloo.
Oerlikon AM and Airbus have successfully industrialized the additive manufacturing (AM) process for complex serial production of antenna clusters. These will be used in a series of communication satellites that will be orbiting earth soon.
London Defense R&D, a British defence firm, has made a groundbreaking announcement with the introduction of the LD-80, the world’s first 3D-printed tactical Anti-Drone System.
3DXB GROUP, which specializes in mixed concrete manufacturing, will launch its 3D printing technologies in the UAE
TPM, a regional company specialising in design and manufacturing solutions, has unveiled its new additive manufacturing lab, what it says is a ‘cutting-edge’ facility based in Greenville, South Carolina.
Northern College is on track to boost its ability to help companies prototype and manufacture innovative new products. The school is the recipient of $391,428 in federal funds, which will go toward the expansion and purchase of new equipment for its Additive Manufacturing Lab, located at its Timmins campus.
nano3Dprint announced a new strategic distribution channel in Asia. Japan-based System Create Co., Ltd. will distribute nano3Dprint’s A2200 3D Multi-material Electronics Printer and B3300 Dual-Dispensing 3D Printer to its customers throughout Japan.
AddUp announced that they have joined the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform ecosystem. With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Dassault Systèmes offers a dedicated set of applications for AM—from new material characterization, adapted design and build job preparation and simulation to shopfloor scheduling and execution monitoring.
Scientists have developed a smart wound dressing that uses advanced polymers for personalized treatment of burn victims. The dressing, customizable via 3D printing, adheres well to skin and offers time-release medication for extended relief.
Sakuu Corporation launched its safer, high energy, high power density Li-Metal Cypress™ cell chemistry for manufacturing licensing. The cell has proprietary structure developed for 3D-printing compatibility boosts Li-Metal cell scalability and enables more efficient packaging
