3D Printing 4D Printing’s Network of Research/ Artificial Intelligence.
According to University of North Florida news, Dr. Steve Stagon, University of North Florida mechanical engineering associate professor, ¨has received a U.S. patent for a tool that will revolutionize manufacturing, a 3D printing injection mold tool with improved heat transfer and mechanical strength. This coating technology can save manufacturing businesses time, money and reduce plastic waste.¨
As explained by Jeffrey Lumetta CTO of Essentium,¨ Collider has a lot to bring to the table. Their innovative method of bringing together proven technologies to create high-value use cases has already proven their industry value. We see significant opportunities in tooling for low volumes of parts and the ability to manufacture geometrically complex, custom parts on-demand and quickly. In addition, this represents Essentum’s first entrance into photopolymer AM technologies and will expand product offerings in several areas—especially when combined with our unique material science capabilities.¨
