EPA view about 3D Printing emissions

Posted on Updated on

According to Dr. Souhail Al-Abed, lead EPA scientist of a new study on the subject,” Users may not be aware of chemical emissions during the printing process. His team’s research shows that common 3D printer ink, or filament, can emit gases during the printing phase that may pose a health risk to users and bystanders. The most concerning of these emissions are known as volatile organic compounds, or VOCs for short.”
For instance, HP says that 3D printing will enable the manufacturing industry to produce less waste, less inventory and less CO2 emissions. It allows engineers and designers to rethink design throughout the product lifecycle in order to use less material and reduce waste by combining parts and using complex geometries to produce lightweight parts.

3-D-printed alloys

Posted on Updated on

In the opinion of Lead author and Ph.D. candidate from RMIT University’s School of Engineering, Carmelo Todaro, “the promising results could inspire new forms of additive manufacturing.
If you look at the microscopic structure of 3-D printed alloys, they’re often made up of large and elongated crystals.
This can make them less acceptable for engineering applications due to their lower mechanical performance and increased tendency to crack during printing.
But the microscopic structure of the alloys we applied ultrasound to during printing looked markedly different: the alloy crystals were very fine and fully equiaxed, meaning they had formed equally in all directions throughout the entire printed metal part.”

Dinsmore custom footwear for the child

Posted on Updated on

Dinsmore Inc. was founded by Jay Dinsmore, a winner of the 2019 Distinguished Innovator Operators Award (DINO) and an outspoken advocate and educator for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing technologies.
As mentioned above about Dinsmore team,” the team design the CAD model and shape of each 3D printed midsole to fit the specific TEVA and UGG shoes that they were bonded to custom, 3D printed orthotics for Imre Patterson, a young boy who was born with a femoral discrepancy (causing one leg to be shorter than the other). Using breakthroughs in both 3D printing technology and materials designed an alternative to his traditional manufactured foam boot using Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS) technology to 3D print a lightweight, latticed midsole. This is the same technology used to manufacture the midsoles of Adidas 4D Futurecraft shoes.”

Accordingly, Daniel Buening, Chief Innovation Officer BigRep, “The vehicle consists of only 14 3D printed parts. The development, from an idea to a finished product, only took 12 weeks, It means that you can design and produce faster. You can print the parts that you need on-demand.
And you can also look at the sustainability aspect: moving spare parts around the world won’t be needed if you produce them locally in the factories instead of flying them across the world.

And you can also look at the sustainability aspect: moving spare parts around the world won’t be needed if you produce them locally in the factories instead of flying them across the world.
We can clearly see that the industry is under pressure. We can see that the technology of today results in large storage spaces, huge distribution networks and problems with transportation. The problems stem from the fact that we have a mass-production system. And mass production is only necessary because we need casting forms and injection casting forms (used in manufacturing) and large machines that need to be set. 3D printing is an alternative to that. We save time, costs and we can put the production in any part of the world.”

Similarly, CGTN’s words,” German 3D company BigRep has created a fully 3D printed car called LOCI. Normal car production is a time-consuming process, but in LOCI’s case, the whole process took only 12 weeks. 3D printed vehicles can also be customized. For example, tall people can order cars with more headspace.

Right now, LOCI is just a prototype. It will be fitted with an electric motor at the start of 2020, and test drives will take place soon after.”

Is an All In One Laser Printer The Best Printer To Buy?

 

When it comes to printers, you’re spoiled for choice. There are numerous types of printers available from Laser printers, LED printers to Dot matrix printers and more. The choice of what printer is right for you really boils down to what you need it for. If it’s high end photo quality you are after, inkjets are probably going to offer you more for creative use, but in the office, laser printers are king. But it’s the all-in-one laser printers that offer the most in the office. 

 

 

Advantages of an All In One Laser Printer

Since all-in-one laser printers offer so much, they make the best home printers and are perfectly suitable for a busy office environment where a machine that can cope with their high volume printing needs is needed. But they are not only the best choice for offices requiring high volume printing, since all in one printers offer the full package of features, they also work well in the home, or for whoever, or whatever organisation requires a printer packed with the features of an all in one laser printer.

all-in-one-printer

So what do they have to offer?

Versatility

An all-in-one laser printer has all the bases covered. Each machine acts as a printer, scanner, fax machine and copier, all in this swiss army knife of a printing machine. They are also equipped to quickly and easily connect to a secure network, allowing you to effortlessly share work documents. 

 

Wireless Network Connectivity

Within companies or organisations, wireless network connectivity is a game changer and one of the most important aspects of the all-in-one laser printer. This built in wireless network acts as its own network and does not require a PC or an external modem to function. 

 

Users are able to easily print documents through the Google cloud, Apple Air Print, USB sticks, mobile devices and more. 

 

Efficiency

With everything conveniently grouped together in one machine, an all-in-one laser printer offers unmatched efficiency. With everything in one place, the process is streamlined, saving you time and energy. Whatever task you require, whether it’s printing from your phone, making a photocopy, scanning a document, or whatever else, you can rest easy knowing it can all be done without fuss from the same machine. 

Affordability

Even though the upfront cost of a multifunction laser printer is more, in the long run you save money. As it’s multiple machines all in one. If you were to buy each machine separately, you would be paying much more than you would for a single all-in-one printer. 

What Do You Need It For… Home or Office?

While all-in-one laser printers are suitable for both home and office settings, specs can vary between machines. So it’s good to know beforehand what environment the machine will be used in, in order to choose the best machine for the job. 

 

If your looking for a multifunctional printer to be used in the home, than you generally want to find one that can provide excellent image quality. If you are looking for an all-in-one laser printer for the office, than you generally want to focus more on text quality than image quality. 

What Else Do All In One Printers Offer

While we have mentioned the main features of a multifunctional printer, there are a lot of other quality features boasted by todays all-in-one laser printers. Some of those include:

Colour

The laser printers of today offer excellent colour quality, with bright, bold colours, well balanced contrast and accurate text. With the incredible resolution and colour technology offered by todays laser printers, not only do they offer high volume capabilities in office settings, but can be used in more creative or personal projects. 

Compact Size

This is one of the more attractive features of a multifunctional printer, it’s size. While freestanding office photocopy machines are very big and bulky in size, all-in-one printers are not, they are compact in size and perfect for smaller offices, or when needed in close proximity (eg kept on top of a desk).
