The Factories of the Future Could Feature 3D Metal Printing

(DGIwire) – Factories made the Industrial Revolution possible. But as much of a technological marvel as they were when they arrived in the 18th and 19th centuries, factories have limitations that are obvious in the 21st. For example, as a recent article in WIRED points out, factories are not “reprogrammable”—to make different products, a factory […]

Medical Device Manufacturing Turns to 3D Printing

(DGIwire) – Imagine being able to produce bone implants, dentures or surgical tools in almost any conceivable design. This scenario came closer to reality in April 2016 when researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems in Dresden, Germany unveiled a new additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D printing) method at the Medtec medical technology […]
