Stryker, another 3D printed titanium alloy cage for FDA, was approved by
Medical device maker Stryker year for Department of orthopedics, nerve and other surgery to provide innovative products, recently announced for titanium alloy vertebral cervical fusion cage is approved by the FDA to another 3D printing, also won the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (k) certification 510. TheC anterior cervical titanium cage design stable, strong adaptability, inspired by osteoporosis , Stryker developed a special titanium growth technology, using a new type of porous titanium materials, can make the bone growth, compared with the traditional titanium material, it can keep the liquid. Surgeons began using it in the fourth quarter of this year to treat degenerative disc disease.
Titomic listed Australian Stock Exchange, IPO raised $5 million 200 thousand, the same day the share price rose 125%
Titomic is an Australian 3D printing company known for its &ldquo, power fusion (KineticFusion) &rdquo, and metal 3D printing technology. Now, the company successfully listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), and achieved no small results. Through IPO (initial public offering), Titomic raised a $6 million 500 thousand ($5 million 200 thousand), the day's share price closed at 45 cents, two times its initial offer of 20 cents, or 125%. The technique of metal 3D printer volume is 9 meters × meters; 3 × 1.5 meters, print the fastest in the world than the 3D printer faster 10-100 times, printed parts strength is 34% higher than ordinary titanium parts, is known as “ one of the world's largest &rdquo metal 3D printing machine;. Titomic is currently in Melbourne to set up a R & D and production line in the factory, the start of the first operation of the project will focus on the bicycle industry, but will also be involved in other areas, such as medical equipment, aerospace and defense market.
New wood 3D print wire: insulation, elongation and contraction, lighter than water,
German 3D print experts and pioneer Kai Parthy introduced a LAYWOODmeta5 and &ldquo like cardboard ” wood 3D printing materials. The rough material, which floats in water and is insulated, is ideal for making products like cups. This latest wooden wire has five features: the first is the high porosity and low density, light can float in the water; second is the surface texture is very rough, looks like the board; third climate response, this feature lets the material change in after printing; fourth is good insulation; fifth is absorbent well, the printing surface of the finished product can be easily coated with water-based ink. In addition, the warp free material can be printed at 235-250 DEG C without the need to heat the printing bed, and its adhesion is said to be comparable to that of ABS.
Finland VTT development 3D printing bandage, can send the wound to the doctor wireless!
Researchers at the VTT research center in Finland are developing 3D print materials usingcellulose nanofibers to create a 3D wound care product that can monitor the condition of the wound for hospital use. These materials, combined with printed electronic products, bring about the next level of health care. The attraction of cellulose lies in its functional properties. For example, using this material, VTT researchers believe they can attach proteins to 3D print adhesive bandages to help promote the growth of skin cells around the wound. More importantly, the 3D print wound care products can even integrate into electronic components, medical staff can continue to understand the patient's rehabilitation. Although it may be some time before it is approved for use in patients, researchers have tested these new materials on non - medical products such as textiles and upholstery.
T3D for mobile phone screen light as a light source SLA 3D printer raised all the chips
T3D is the Taiwan University of science and Technology (NTUST) is one of the spin off of the start-ups, since 2012, the mobile phone to be used to cure specific visible light sensitive resin, while NTUST is the world's first for the innovative research projects agency. Today, T3D has this particular kind of resin, and launched a mobile phone screen light as a light source SLA 3D printers raised. It has 3 rotating platforms with different resin cans and can be used for multicolor printing. This is the firstin the world to design multicolor components in SLA 3D printers, . By connecting the phone's WIFI, you can connect to more than 5000 types of cloud servers for printing. The camera can be used as a 3D scanner to capture images and send it to the cloud, so you can build the 3D model. In this T3D 3D printer, we can use the existing features on the phone to achieve affordable, convenient and efficient 3D printing.
Digital Metal commercialization DM P2500 adhesive spray metal 3D printer
It is reported that Sweden Digital Metal has begun to produce DM P2500— — a high-precision adhesive spray metal 3D printer, can produce “ than any previous technology, smaller and more complex components ”. The machine, which uses metal powders for continuous production, is ideal for making custom parts, printing speeds of up to 100 cubic centimeters per hour, with a print layer of 42 microns. Its construction volume is 2500 cubic centimeters, can print up to 50000 parts at one time, and does not need to support structure. Not only that, the printer also has a XY resolution of 35 microns, with an average surface roughness of Ra6 microns before processing, producing “has a complex structure of medical grade smoothness, ”. In addition, the machine can also reuse the powder before sintering to ensure high yield and low scrap rate, and overall efficiency is increased by 30%.
Structo combines Materialize to launch PrintWorks Pro software for dental 3D printing
Structo, a specialized dental application development SLA 3D printer manufacturer, earlier this year released its latest DentalForm printer, the printer uses a proprietary Structo Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology. And now, Structo and Materialize are launching Structo PrintWorks Pro software designed to simplify the 3D print file preparation process for dental professionals using Structo 3D printers. The software is user-friendly, intuitive and fast, allowing users to experience improved performance.has the benefits of fast, accurate slicing, material specific print profiles, and slice based processing algorithms that deal with the most complex files; and flexible output formats, . With the new software, users can 3D print more detailed and accurate components.
