Fast, On-Demand Jig & Fixture Production with PolyJet

Jigs and fixtures are an essential part of the manufacturing process that are used to position, hold and check parts and assemblies. But making them with traditional methods and materials is often costly and time consuming. PolyJet 3D printing technology offers an alternative that is much more economical and time-efficient, allowing you to quickly make jigs and fixtures as they’re needed. In this webinar you’ll learn more about these and other benefits of PolyJet 3D printed jigs and fixtures.

Integrating 3D Printing into the Product Development Process

In conjunction with SAE International 3D printing in the product development process is becoming increasingly important with the increase in the pace of the construction industry. Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) has embraced this into its work process. Equipped with a Stratasys Eden 260V, Volvo CE has the ability to create engine component prototypes that are mounted directly on the engine and then tested. Volvo CE also quickly builds 3D models of its new product concepts for stakeholders to get timely feedback, reducing risk and lead time in all development stages. This advantage gives Volvo CE the ability to make better project decisions throughout the development and production cycles.

Selecting Miniature Motors for your Medical Devices

The creation of small, portable infusion pumps opened a new chapter in medical care. A patient can receive carefully metered and timed doses of medicine, without requiring a visit to the medical practitioner, allowing life to be less restrictive. Ambulatory pumps have been developed to deliver insulin, nutritive supplements and anticancer drugs.

Compact Light Source Improves CT Scans

A new study shows that the recently developed Compact Light Source (CLS) – a commercial X-ray source with roots in research and development efforts at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory – enables computer tomography scans that reveal more detail than routine scans performed at hospitals today. The new technology could soon be used in preclinical studies and help researchers better understand cancer and other diseases.

"TREASORES" Project Moves Towards "Printed" Organic Solar Cells, LEDs

Flexible optoelectronic devices that can be produced roll-to-roll – much like newspapers are printed – are a highly promising path to cheaper devices such as solar cells and LED lighting panels. Scientists from "TREASORES" project recently demonstrated prototype flexible solar cell modules, as well as novel silver-based transparent electrodes, that outperform currently used materials.

Intelligent Back Light

EVT (Karlsruhe, Germany) has introduced a new industrial back light in its BrainLight smart illumination series. The LEDs of the intelligent back light can illuminate in the colors red, green, blue and white. There is a diffusor plate in front of the LEDs so that the light spreads evenly over the object. All together there are 48 full-color LEDs arranged in a tight grid. The BrainLight QC is 30 x 40 mm in size and has an input voltage of +24V. It is modularly expansible, meaning LED rows can be added, depending on application. The customer can choose any of the four available colors and the LEDs can be switched on row by row. Light sequences can be programmed and played successively. To learn more, click here.
