Presented by Martin Hedges, Neotech AMT.
This presentation will review the state-of-the-art related to the production of 3D mechatronic systems using Additive Manufacturing (AM) and review developments for scaling the processes through all stages, from one off prototyping to high volume manufacture.

Flexible consumer electronics products are closer to Main Street thanks to a new manufacturing tool from Kateeva. This week at the Printed Electronics USA conference in Santa Clara, Calif., the provider of technology-driven deposition equipment will introduce the YIELDjet™ FLEX, a high-performance mass-production solution for flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs). Continue reading “Kateeva Introduces The YIELDjet Flex – A Manufacturing Equipment Solution to Mass Produce Innovative OLED Displays”
When people discuss engines, they usually mention the number of cylinders, horsepower, and maybe the engine’s torque, but do they have an understanding of all of the inner workings? Continue reading “This 3D Printed Toyota Engine Really Revs”
Scientists are printing electronic circuits that spring up from a flat surface to form tiny 3D components. Cathal O’Connell reports.We have pop-up books and pop-up tents, now a team of US scientists has made pop-up electronics. The technique, a world-first, was reported in Science. Continue reading “3D printing takes its lead from the pop-up book”
4D printing develops materials that can change properties and characteristics based on changes in the environment—like temperature. The changes could let materials self-assemble thus speeding up manufacturing and reducing labor requirements. Continue reading “4D Printing on the Rise”
New advances in 3D printing are making it not only possible but also viable to manufacture cheap, print-on-demand, disposable drones designed simply to soar off over the horizon and never come back. Some British engineers did just that, and this is only the beginning. Continue reading “How 3D Printing Will Create On-Demand Swarms Of Disposable Drones”
