Bringing you up to speed with the week that went by in the world of Additive Manufacturing with the AM Chronicle weekly news update
The round up of last weeks additive manufacturing news includes groundbreaking research by Indian researchers on 3D printed artificial cornea; Aston Martin launched sports racers DBR22 with a 3D-printed rear subframe; collaboration between Celllink and IISc to develop CoE; expansion of Titomic into Middle East; Montana (U.S.A.) approves 3D-printed walls as an equal replacement for walls and more
A team of clinicians and scientists from the LV Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI), Hyderabad, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad, and Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), have collaborated to develop the 3D-printed cornea from the human donor corneal tissue which would have otherwise been discarded for not meeting optical standards for clinical transportation.
CELLINK, a global leader in the developing of 3D bioprinters, and The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) are partnering to establish a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for 3D bioprinting in Bengaluru, India.
Repkon Foreign Trade and Marketing — a sister company of Repkon Machine and Tool Industry and Trade — has agreed to become an official reseller of Titomic Limited systems across the defense and aerospace sector in Turkey, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Saudi Arabia. The ASX-listed additive manufacturing technology company has entered into a partnership aimed at bolstering its market footprint in the Middle East.
Aston Martin has launched sports racers DBR22 with advance features such as 3D-printed rear subframe, Top speed of 198mph, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and Unique, coach-built design.
ASTM International has been awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a roadmap for guidance and adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies in the construction sector.
Global engineering technologies company Renishaw has used its expertise in additive manufacturing (AM) to contribute to the new track bike for the Great British Cycling Team (GBCT).
Boeing Co and Northrop Grumman are joining a White House-backed compact to help smaller U.S.-based suppliers increase the use of 3D printing and other advanced manufacturing technologies. The voluntary program, unveiled by President Joe Biden in May, seeks to boost suppliers’ use of additive manufacturing (AM).
Building code regulators at the state level in Montana made history as the first to approve 3D-printed walls as an equal replacement for walls made with concrete masonry units (CMUs), or a standard cored concrete block. The approval was granted to Tim Stark, a contractor based in Billings, Montana, after filing documents, specifications and testing reports developed by Apis Cor.
Simplifyber, Inc., creator of the world’s first fully-molded garment and shoe uppers made directly from a cellulose-based liquid, announced today the closing of a $3.5M round of seed funding, led by At One Ventures.
