The Ilika battery solution is an always-on, self-charging and efficient solution, here pictured in a perpetual beacon demonstrator

With designers and engineers hooked on the possibilities of connected, sensor-enhanced, realtime-feedback-producing products, the ability to power it has been the sticking point.

That is until companies like Ilika transform battery technology for IoT and address the key challenge of ‘fit and forget’ energy sources - its Stereax cell is one of the first always-on, self-charging and efficient energy cells available.

Ilika believes that the solution is in solid state batteries since they can be used in conjunction with all our current energy harvesting technologies whilst being able to match the energy needs for IoT devices.

The colour printing abilities of Stratasys’ flagship polyjet 3D printer is a marked improvement on previous machines

The new Stratasys J750 technology is set to allow customers to add more than 360,000 different colour shades, plus multiple material properties, to a single 3D print build model.

The latest addition to the Objet Connex multi-colour, multi-material series of 3D Printers, aims to remove time wasted on standard post-printing jobs such as painting and assembly.

The machine is focussed on radicalising the prototyping process, giving designers faster access to an expanded array of colours over previous Polyjet technologies, thanks to a new higher resolution Ricoh printer head with 6 material jetting nozzles and two for support material.

Roboze targets advanced materials with One+400 desktop 3D printer

Roboze is looking to lower the barrier to entry for printing advanced thermoplastics for functional parts

Designed for printing high-end thermoplastic materials, the Roboze One+400 is looking to lower the price barrier to printing advanced materials such as PEEK, PEI and carbon PA as well as 9 other functional materials.

Due to its excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties, PEEK is extensively used in the aerospace, automotive and chemical process industries, while PEI offers outstanding elevated thermal resistance, high strength and stiffness, and broad chemical resistance.

Fitted with a new dual extruder, the print heads can reach temperatures of up to 400°C, allowing for printing with the two polymers, while a patented mechanical moving system - a ‘helical rack’ - is directly contacted by a pinion to drive both the X and Y axes, removing the need for a belt drive.
