According to HESE director John Gershenson, “For too long, people have lacked access to appropriate medical care just because of where they were born. Now, the entire world will know that Penn Staters are helping to right that wrong. We’ve been exploring the idea of installing these 3D printers in or near rural health facilities, training staff members and local entrepreneurs there how to use them and creating the necessary support systems. If these facilities can make those hard-to-get items for themselves, they could keep running their facility the way they need to rather than having to import everything from other countries.”
For rural areas in Kenya, healthcare accessibility has been and continues to be, a growing concern—one that the Kijenzi venture hopes to solve by providing accessible and affordable medical education tools.
According to Ben Savonen, “this is a very experimental project, but, as some of the components of its work out, it will have a huge impact.”
According to jpost.com,” About 40% of 3D printers worldwide are manufactured by Israeli companies. The new facility is the first of its kind in Africa—it relies on the latest 3D software for prototyping and includes twenty-three advanced 3D printing machines”.
The inauguration of the facility, Cameroon’s Education Minister Jacques Fame Ndongo thanked Israel and praised “the product of its ingenuity known since ancient times.” Israel’s Ambassador to Cameroon Ran Gidor expressed the hope that Cameroon will become “the Silicon Valley of Africa.”
According to Clare Scott, 3DPrint.com, Mike Senese, Executive Editor, Make- magazine, Peter Sander, Head of Emerging Technologies and Concepts, Airbus, Tyler Koslow, 3D Printing Industry, “No report is more detailed, more comprehensive, more all-around knowledgeable than the Wohlers Report. The release of a new installment of the Wohlers Report is always a momentous day in 3D printing, and this year is no exception as the 2019 report arrives today. Anyone with serious interest in professional 3D printing should be reading the Wohlers Report. There’s no better resource for anyone in the business of digital fabrication. It is the industry bible. In the world of additive manufacturing, Wohlers is both a legend and visionary. He understands the trends and opportunities provided by technology like no other and is willing to share his insights. With over two decades of quality data, the Wohlers Associates team has become the gold standard for computing growth, analyzing trends, and forecasting the future of additive manufacturing”.
According to the IBM’s patent, “A method and associated systems for 3D printing on the surface of an acoustic hologram use an array of sound-wave emitters to generate a three-dimensional acoustic hologram of an object to be printed”.
According to Thermwood, “LSAM is intended for industrial production. It is not a lab, evaluation or demonstration machine, but is instead a full-fledged industrial additive manufacturing system intended for the production of large scale components.
Thermwood has already applied for 19 separate patents on various aspects of this new technology. LSAM is true “state of the art” in this exciting new world of Large Scale Additive Manufacturing.
LSAM produces superior printed parts”.
