3D Printing startup

Posted on Updated on

According to Essentium co-founder and CEO Blake Teipel, “Industrial additive manufacturing is ripe for transformation. The problem/solution paradigm is made clear through independent research we commissioned among executives in industrial manufacturing where 100 percent of respondents reported obstacles in using 3D printing for large scale production, and 88% stated that their industries will save billions of dollars in production costs when the barriers are eliminated. Eliminating these barriers is what Essentium is delivering on. The developer of the High Speed Extrusion (HSE) FDM 3D printing platform, has closed a $22.2 million series A funding round. Led by BASF Venture Capital, the round featured the participation of award-winning 3D software company Materialise, Houston private equity firm Genesis Park, and previous seed round investors”.

3D Printing aids for ‘Arthritis’ Patients

Posted on Updated on

Arthritis is not only based on age anybody can have ‘Arthritis’ at any age.
In my opinion, research can change the bases of age.
I have seen so many young age people have ‘Arthritis’.
Nobody wants to talk about and they hide because. Arthritis is commonly used for old age diseases. According to the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, “By 2040, more than a quarter of the U.S. population will have diagnosed arthritic conditions. Adults with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions earn less than average yet have medical care expenditures that are over 12% of average household income. Adaptive aids can help arthritis patients continue to maintain independence and quality of life; however, their high costs limit accessibility for older people and the poor. One method used for consumer price reduction is distributed manufacturing with 3-D printers. In order to assess if such a method would be financially beneficial, this study evaluates the techno-economic viability of distributed manufacturing of adaptive aids for arthritis patients”.
