3D Printing Enables Customizable Medical Prosthetics

One of the most exciting developments in manufacturing is shifting the application of 3D printing from strictly prototyping to actual production manufacturing. In doing so, the process is creating new opportunities that would have been impossible in the past. Among those taking early advantage of this trend are entrepreneurs with start-up companies that are using additive manufacturing (AM) to print parts at prices competitive with traditional manufacturing. Some are using AM technology to create innovations in medical devices that help transform lives. Case in point: creating customizable prosthetics.

Drones are the next chapter in our story

Throughout history civilizations have been built on the communication systems available at the time. The oldest continuously inhabited cities in the World sprang up along the Silk Road.  The Egyptian Empire was built along the Nile. The Europeans spread out across the oceans. The railroad expanded the American Wild-West. Roads, cars, airports and planes and latterly the Internet have shaped the way we live our lives.  Drones are the next chapter in this story.

Unlimited-length FPCs are set to unlock benefits for a wide spectrum of applications

Flexible printed circuits (FPCs) are a popular choice for designers of a wide range of industrial and consumer electronic products, owing to their many benefits – including weight, space and cost savings, ruggedness and electrical performance. Traditional FPC manufacturing techniques have, however, been unable to produce FPCs more than one metre in length, restricting their use to smaller applications such as cameras, mobile phones, printers, instrument panels, control systems and medical instruments.
