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 launch of 3D printing hub and Goa Drone Policy by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant; Successful 3D bioprinting of eye tissue by National Eye Institute; partnership between Meltio and 12 software companies for development of hybrid and robotic AM technology and research on application of metal additive manufacturing for detection of counterfeited parts by Texas A&M.
Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and Information Technology (IT) Minister Rohan Khaunte released the Goa Drone policy and inaugurated ‘Additive Manufacturing Hub’ within the premises of the IT hub at Altinho in Panaji.
Scientists used patient stem cells and 3D bioprinting to produce eye tissue that will advance understanding of the mechanisms of blinding diseases. The research team from the National Eye Institute (NEI), part of the National Institutes of Health, printed a combination of cells that form the outer blood-retina barrier—eye tissue that supports the retina’s light-sensing photoreceptors
This are the 12 most innovative worldwide software companies in additive manufacturing (AM) that have joined Meltio Engine’s Software Partner ecosystem for hybrid and robotic platforms: SKM DCAM by SKM Informatik; AdaOne by Adaxis; AiSync by AiBuild; Esprit by Hexagon; Fusion 360 by Autodesk; Aplus+Mastercam by Camufacturing and Mastercam; Hypermill by OpenMind; SiemensNX by Siemens; Hy5CAM by 1ATechnologies; RobotStudio 3D Printing PowerPack by ABB and SprutCAM X by SprutCam.
Texas A&M Researchers are applying metal additive manufacturing techniques to embed a hidden cache of information within products to help combat counterfeited goods.
Markforged announced that the Markforged materials manufacturing facility located in Billerica, MA is International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 certified
Additive Assurance, a metal 3D printing quality assurance startup, has now raised AU$4.1 million ($2.7 million) in early-stage venture capital funding to establish an additive manufacturing quality assurance center of excellence at its Melbourne, Australia
The AddUp, the metal additive manufacturing solutions provider created by French groups Michelin and Fives, is expanding its machine portfolio with the announcement of the FormUp350 Evolution.
