In a new research study, North Carolina State University (NC State) scientists demonstrated they could print sheets of electrically conductive ink on polyester fabric to manufacture an e-textile that could be utilized in the design of future wearable devices.
Every year between the beginning of April and the end of June the asparagus season begins. But only half of the world's asparagus production is used as food. Therefore, a research team from Munich University of Applied Sciences has been formed to try to address this issue.
Passing the Taste-Test: Redefine Meat’s 3D-Printed Vegan ‘Alt-Steak’ Convinces Omnivores in Blind Trial Run in Israel
The Israeli start-up Redefine Meat presented their ‘Alt-Steak’ in 2020, providing a plant-based meat substitute that looks, cooks and tastes just like the real animal product, created with the power of print. The 3D-printed, revolutionary meat-alternative passed the taste test in February and is coming to supermarkets all over the world in 2022.
In an effort to provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic and create a greener future, the German materials manufacturer Covestro has teamed up with companies like JuggerBot 3D, TA Systems and DSM Additive Manufacturing. Together, they have created a new, more sustainable PA410 polymer and conducted an extensive Life Cycle Analysis.
The Boston-based 3D printing startup Fortify, teamed up with Rogers Corporation, a global leader in engineered materials for advanced connectivity and power electronics, to make 3D-printed low-loss dielectric materials for radio frequency electronics and devices a reality.
If you are still not convinced to take advantage of workflow automation in your printing plants, we have gathered our top 4 reasons to automate your print production processes now. If applied at just the right insertion point, even small changes can deliver big results.
A group of researchers from the Universities of Bath and Bristol has developed a way to coax microscopic particles and droplets into precise patterns by using just the power of sound. This promising method opens up many implications for printing, especially in the field of medicine and electronics.
Buffalo University researchers have used 3D printing to make advances in the field of water purification. A printed graphene aerogel could help remove organic solvents and contamination from water treatment facilities with an exceptional success rate if put into commercial use.
It is time for our latest #PrintingProcesses article, where we share fundamental insights regarding printing technologies and methods. In this episode of our series, we will continue from our last article, in which we had already teased what’s to come: large format digital printing and out of home media.
