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.
Essentium CEO: Production-speed additive manufacturing is “a time machine and an insurance policy.” It addresses lead time demands while providing buffer against volatility. Look for 3D printing to support injection molding in this way.
Collaborative efforts like this can bring together diverse organizations that specialize in different aspects of an emerging technology and often produce results that none of the participants could possibly achieve on their own.

Freeformer is an open system with an extensive materials database that enables customers to utilize their current production materials to create prototypes or move straight to small series production with additive manufacturing.
The man who designed the sportscar is making a special limited-edition reimagining of it. 3D printing is playing a role.
FDM Assembly Fixture Generator automates design of jigs and fixtures, enabling engineers to quickly turn a part file into a ready-to-print fixture with a simple drag-and-drop function.
Terminology confusion might be coming, because the answer is likely yes. A provider of glass flake for plastics foresees applications to AM, specifically as a reinforcement within 3D printing filament.
Health care business leverages Desktop Metal’s portfolio of AM solutions for current and future applications spanning dentistry, orthodontics, dermatology, orthopedics, cardiology, plastic surgery, and printed regenerative tissues and grafts.
Workflow efficiencies and sustainability goals can be achieved together. An automated cleaning system and longer-lasting detergent allowed one manufacturer to reduce hazards, costs and time in its resin removal process.
