Spectroplast silicone 3D printing got €1.4m investment from AM Ventures

Posted on Updated on

Spectroplast AG has developed a high-precision 3D printing technology for pure silicone, enabling the production of complex soft medical implants. Spectroplast’s Silicones are compatible with the latest SLA and DLP Technology, innovation lies in providing a cutting-edge material technology that makes industry-standard Silicones accessible to Additive Manufacturing.

According to Johann Oberhofern and Manuel Schaffner, Chief Technology Officer at Spectroplast, TCT Magazine, AM Ventures,” introduction of silicones to the world of additive manufacturing is well-timed with the rapidly growing demand for customized silicone products that we not only observe in the healthcare sector but also in many other markets.
As an industry, we are just starting to understand how powerful 3D printing of functional products will become when it is combined with the massive potential offered by industrial-scale production. Having the financial support and domain expertise of AMV will help us execute our mission even more rapidly and broadly.”

HRE3D+ 3D Printed Titanium Wheel

Posted on Updated on

HRE3D+ 3D Printed Titanium Wheel. They first started 16 pounds for a 20-inch wheel, and 19 pounds for a 21-inch.
According to HRE President/CEO Alan Peltier, “We’re proud to be breaking new ground in wheel manufacturing with the updated HRE3D+ wheels. HRE utilize the brand’s 3D-printed multiple additive manufacturing systems ‘Direct Metal Laser Melting’ (DMLM). Working with GE Additive has given us access to some truly cutting-edge technology, and we’re exploring the future of wheel technology together with tools that will continue to evolve over the next few years. We can’t wait to see what we’re able to accomplish next”.

The 3D printed robot hand

Posted on Updated on

The 3D printed robot hand, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge. It has soft and rigid materials together to replicate all the bones and ligaments.

According to Ph.D. student Josie Hughes from Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, “We can use passivity to achieve a wide range of movement in robots- walking, swimming or flying, for example, Smart mechanical design enables us to achieve the maximum range of movement with minimal control costs. We wanted to see just how much movement we could get with mechanics alone”. She is the paper’s first author.

3D Print and Veterans throughout the nation

Posted on Updated on

According to the Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation (VACI),” recently launched the first nationwide medical 3D printing network through a collaboration with Stratasys, one of the largest manufacturers of 3D printers globally. As part of this effort, five 3D printers donated by Stratasys were installed in VA hospitals across the country, including Albuquerque, Boston, Orlando, San Antonio and Seattle”.

Veterans throughout the nation.

According to Garrett Grindle, a research scientist for HERL, says, “3D printing allows us an almost unlimited ability to customize the parts we need—because anything we can draw upon a computer, it can print out!””It’s really hard to make these devices in small quantities. 3D printing allows us to do that,” he tells us. Grindle also said that 3D printers make it easier to create contoured devices than current manufacturing techniques can. He cited a contoured joystick created by a HERL associate to fit the associate’s own hand and help him control his powered wheelchair. We want people to look at what people are using and say, ‘Wow! ‘That gear is as cool as a new cell phone. We’re doing this to get new technology into the hands of Veterans quickly’.
