Royal DSM and JuggerBot 3D, an additive manufacturing machine builder specializing in production 3D printing, have announced a trial program for companies to evaluate engineering-grade materials in an industrial-grade filament printer without the upfront investment in hardware.
Electronic components can also be manufactured by roll-to-roll processes, where a special stamp transfers the printing material to the substrate. However, common defects, such us haloing or bridging, negatively affect the performance of printed materials for electronics applications.
The greatest stimulus to the titanium industry has been the meteoric rise of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM). AM is extending rapidly to embrace a wide range of products made of an increasing number of materials, including nano-materials such as the super-strong graphene.
