Automotive manufacturers and other OEMs require mold tooling to build foam components like seat cushions. 3D printed tools could be a faster, more affordable way to prototype and produce these parts.
A new 3D printing process that shapes extruded metal paste before sintering can produce fine detail and surface finish suitable for injection mold cores and cavities with limited or no additional postprocessing.

EastPoint Prosthetics and Orthotics has a track record of changing lives with limb prostheses, orthoses, helmets and more. The digital workflow it has built with Additive America to 3D print these devices is now allowing this mission to go farther.
Precise control of battery electrode architecture through photopolymerization opens the door to new cell geometries and lighter battery packs for EVs and more, Photocentric says.
The Hylixa high-fidelity speaker has an internal geometry and footprint designed for optimal sound that could only be realized through 3D printing. How Node Audio developed and produces this product.

The recently introduced Calibur3 system from Wayland Additive overcomes challenges to bring new materials and capabilities to EBM metal 3D printing.
In this episode of The Cool Parts Show, we learn how controlled porosity obtained through binder jetting can be applied to build metal filters capable of trapping — and even eliminating — virus particles.
