3D Printed Scupper Plugs

Posted on Updated on

As reported by Simon Ratcliffe, DNV GL, “Wilhelmsen, Ivaldi, and DNV GL are testing a new universal part tracking system for purposes of quality control, part evolution and traceability of parts. The first 3D printed scupper plugs have been given unique identifying codes and are logged in a trial system that should enable tracking throughout the lifetime of the part.”
As mentioned by Sim Teck Siang, Procurement Manager, Berge Bulk, “Scupper plugs are expensive, and there are no universal dimensions, which means that when you have a broken element, you have to buy a new scupper plug. With additive manufacturing, we are able to procure scupper plugs faster, cheaper and locally. If any part breaks, we can replace that one part instead of the whole unit. We are excited to be part of the Early Adopter Program. On-demand additive manufacturing will revolutionize the spare parts industry.”

According to Oliver Ripley, co-founder Eduardo Castillo and Kfir Levy of the newly opened Habitas Tulum in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, “If Aman hotels, Club Med, SoHo House and Burning Man had a baby, that would be the love child of what we’re trying to create. 3D printing technology. The company flat-packs the basic structures of the rooms and ships them to the final location.”

High-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin

Posted on Updated on

According to Andre Simpson, a professor at U of T Scarborough’s department of physical and environmental sciences and researchers at the University of Toronto,” turned waste cooking oil – from the deep fryers of a local McDonald’s – into a high-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin. Because we’re using what is essentially a natural product – in this case fats from cooking oil – nature can deal with it much better.”
