Create Your Own Packaging With Short-Run Printing

Production runs with hundreds of thousands of units made from a single setup are well known to be cost-effective. Once the design and equipment for printing are set up, the production is more efficient in manufacturing a larger number of units at once. This field is continuously changing with new modern digital production methods. That is why it is worth to take a look at the potential this opens up for the packaging industry.

Research Team from Tufts University Improves Metamaterial-Usage With Inkjet Technology

A team of engineers of the Boston Tufts University is turning to inkjet printing technology to improve the established use of metamaterials for mobile, communications and medical devices. As they are more amenable to the resolution of common fabrication methods, these changes might even create new options for the development of metamaterials for visible light.

Show Your Colors – Euro 2021 Jersey Designs

Football is coming home to Wembley stadium at the UEFA Euro 2021 finale this Sunday. But if England is going to snatch up the title again remains to be seen! One thing is certain though: the winning team will look good on the football field. 

Turning Solar Energy into Electricity with Laser Printing

Until now, the process of producing nanomaterials based on copper, cobalt and nickel oxides has required a great amount of energy and time. But this might be coming to an end soon thanks to a team from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces.  

Not a Mystery Any Longer: Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence has long been an important part of the printing industry – yet some find it difficult to explore the topic because it seems so big and complex. To overcome the initial barriers of interacting with this important technology, we take a look at some simple principles behind it. 

A Story of Asparagus

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. 

Covestro’s Biobased Polymer Makes Sustainable 3D Printing Possible

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.
