Siemens is purchasing Atlas 3D

Posted on Updated on

According to Zvi Feuer, senior vice president of manufacturing engineering software at Siemens Digital Industries Software, said in a company press release, “We welcome Atlas 3D to the Siemens community as the newest member of our additive manufacturing team. Our solutions industrialize additive manufacturing for large enterprises, 3D printing service bureaus, design firms, and CAD designers. The cloud-based Sunata software makes it easy for designers to determine the optimal way to 3D print parts for high quality and repeatability. The combination of Sunata with the robust CAE additive manufacturing tools in Simcenter enables a ‘right first-time’ approach for industrial 3D printing.”

3D printing uptake to increase in oil and gas industry

Posted on Updated on

According to 3D Printing in Oil & Gas – Thematic Research, “Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, has emerged as one of the key enabling technologies in driving industrial productivity. Over the years, 3D printing technology has received increasing prominence in different industries and has significantly impacted automotive and aerospace manufacturing. The oil and gas industry has also shown slow but steady adoption of this technology in recent years. Initially, 3D printing technology was largely limited to polymer-based products. However, recent advancements in metal-based 3D printing is making this technology more relevant to the oil and gas industry.”

3D printers in or near rural health facilities

Posted on Updated on

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.”
