Illinois-based construction corporation Caterpillar Inc. has announced a three-year partnership with German additive manufacturing company FIT AG. Through the partnership, the companies will work together to design and 3D print aluminum and titanium parts.
FDA have given the go ahead for 3D printing to be used to produce surgical guides for children for the first time. The guides will be produced by Materialise, to help surgeons with pediatric osteotomy operations. This will allow for better planning and much more accurate surgery
Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS) has announced that its acquisition of West Virginia-based additive manufacturing powder producer Puris LLC is complete. The acquisition saw Carpenter buy Puris' manufacturing assets, patents, and intellectual property for a total of $35 million.
Daqri, a startup specializing in augmented reality devices, has created a hologram-powered 3D printer. The machine uses a complex DLP-style curing system, and is currently capable of printing small objects like paperclips.
Research at the University of Akron, Ohio has developed a new method of 3D printing by extruding inks from a nozzle in layers and using light to simultaneously cure it. The technique is termed “Direct-print photopolymerization for 3D printing” and works in almost opposite way to traditional stereolithography (SLA).Direct 3D printing in comparison to SLAStereolithography
A joint team of researchers has turned to the natural world for inspiration in creating incredibly strong yet low density parts that borrow heavily from patterns found in our bones. Their infill optimization process could help to 3D print stronger, more efficient parts.
Metals and alloys heavyweight Carpenter Technology Corporation has just bought Puris, a leading titanium AM powder producer. The new deal, which is valued at $35 million USD, will see Carpenter execute a definitive asset purchase agreement for the purchase of all Puris assets and business.
Divergent 3D, maker of the 3D printed Blade Supercar and developer of the innovative 'Node' platform for automotive manufacturing, has announced that it has successfully raised $23 million through a Series A funding round. The funding round was led by tech venture capital firm Horizons Ventures.
Galenfeha, Inc., a Texas-based engineering, manufacturing, and product development company, has announced plans to acquire Additive Manufacturing LLC for $14 million in cash, signing a letter of intent to acquire the 3D printing company.
Engineers at the University of Nottingham in the UK are using 3D printing to develop lightweight automotive components, boosting vehicle fuel efficiency while reducing noise and CO2 emissions, as part of the ongoing 'FLAC' project. The parts are being made with SLM 3D printers.
Last April, a team of researchers succeeded in 3D printing a chemically active structure using nanocomposites and a commercial 3D printer. Their research has now been recognized by the Science and Technology of Advanced Materials journal, having been awarded the STAM 2016 Altmetrics Award.
Chemists at MIT have developed a 3D printing technique that allows for the alteration of a printed object's chemical structure and the chemical joining of multiple 3D printed objects. They say the technique could greatly expand the complexity of objects that can be created with 3D printing.
