The first of XJet’s nano-particle jetting 3D printers is already in a production setting with many more set to follow, as the Israeli company ramps up the production of its Carmel 1400 and 700 systems.

It’s an exciting technology, which it is hoped will soon make multi-material printing of metals and ceramic in the same part a possibility on an industrial scale.

Featuring the company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology, the printer eschews the costs and safety problems of 3D printing with powders and instead suspends the metal or ceramic particles in a solution, before layering them and a support material from high-resolution print heads.

An envisioned set-up of multiple SLM Solutions SLM 800 3D printers for mass production

While GE Additive made a big splash at 3D printing trade show Formnext, unveiling a first look at its additive manufacturing future, SLM Solutions, which turned down a reported $745M takeover from GE, was showing further evidence as to why it was set on going it alone.

On the first day of the event the German company picked up an order from an Asian energy firm for ‘at least €37M’ for 20 SLM 800 3D printers, following on from a similar order in recent months.

While we don’t usually post comment on such machine sales, it offers an interesting look at the expanded growth of an industry and the confidence within the sector - and the knock on effect this adoption will have for design and engineering tools.

Identify3D will provide data protection and enforce production rules

Renishaw aims to offer an end-to-end, secure digital manufacturing process through a new collaboration with digital supply chain software company Identify3D.

SanFrancisco-based Identify3D will provide data protection coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing from design to production on Renishaw AM systems.

According to Renishaw, by choosing to secure all digital data in the engineering phase, the technology enables users of its systems to protect their digital intellectual property, enforce production rules and provide traceability in the digital supply chain at the industry’s highest standard.

A selection of 3D printed airway stents, built using Carbon’s SIL30 silicone material

SIL 30, a soft, tear-resistant, biocompatible new silicone resin, has opened up Carbon‘s 3D printing solutions to a range of medical and consumer products such as headphones, wristbands, and various other wearables.

Carbon worked with NAMSA, a leader in biocompatibility testing, to certify SIL 30 as well as six additional Carbon resins, all printable on its M Series 3D printers.

The resins are also certified for use in medical device manufacturing – another industry that has seen significant benefits from using 3D printing.
