High Speed Sintering Steps Towards Commercialization with Xaar’s Newest Hire

High Speed Sintering Steps Towards Commercialization with Xaar’s Newest Hire

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Currently packing up his office at Sheffield University, the primary inventor of high speed sintering (HSS) Professor Neil Hopkinson is about to take this cutting edge technology from the lab to the industrial sphere. As the newly appointed Director of 3D Printing with Cambridge-based Xaar plc, Hopkinson will oversee the development of HSS and other 3D printing technologies within the inkjet printhead company for use by their OEM partners.

PV Nano Cell’s NanoMetal Inks Write Up 2016 as the Year of 3D Printed Electronics

PV Nano Cell’s NanoMetal Inks Write Up 2016 as the Year of 3D Printed Electronics

By Davide Sher

It’s that time of the year again, that of resolutions and predictions for what’s to come. After the fully automated metal ALM factory, it is now time to look at another important trend that will very likely start to see some very serious commercial applications in 2016: 3D printed electronics, both for prototyping of PCBs and end use wearable and IoT products. One company that is literally mapping the path for this to happen is PV Nano Cell, a major player in the production of nano-particle-metal inks for printed electronics.…

XYZprinting Brings Arsenal of New 3D Printers to CES 2016

XYZprinting Brings Arsenal of New 3D Printers to CES 2016

By Michael Molitch-Hou

While in Taiwan, I had the opportunity to see the headquarters of the biggest consumer 3D printer company in the world, XYZprinting.  Seeing the New Kinpo Group subsidiary first-hand gave me the opportunity to learn a great deal about how the XYZ brand was able to explode overnight (covered in a separate post), but I was also able to catch wind of some exciting news ahead of CES 2016.  Among the many products that XYZprinting has brought to CES this year are a new, sub-$300 3D printer, a desktop FDM machine capable of mixing colors, and a full-color, binder jet 3D printer.…

Davide Sher’s Top 2015 3D Printing Applications

Davide Sher’s Top 2015 3D Printing Applications

By Davide Sher

I think that, until the end of 2014, it was still theoretically possible to discuss the top 5 3D printing innovations of the year. Today, I don’t find that possible any longer. There are just way too many things happening in the 3D printing industry and the crazy part is that we are still, really, at the very beginning. Only a couple of years have passed since the mass public discovered that 3D printing exists and, yet, this technology is now at the forefront in just about every industrial, professional, and artisan sector of manufacturing.…
