The successful operation to remove a 2kg cancerous tumour took place in Vinmec International Hospital in Vietnam, lasting 8 hours, presided by a team of 30 medical professionals.
Additive manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing, is gaining in popularity due to its broad scope of application, in industry, R&D, and for personal use. Asia Briefing offers an overview of how this burgeoning new technology is evolving in Vietnam.
Construction is among the main industries that contribute to countries’ economic development, with a 9% GDP (gross domestic product) share and about 7~8.5% of the total global employment. Yet, using additive manufacturing (AM) in construction is slower than manufacturing.
New software for TRUMPF 3D printers eliminates the need for almost all support structures. Users such as toolcraft cut down material usage and reduce part costs.
As electronic devices become more miniaturised, the demand for smaller optical components creates production challenges. Conventional methods for 3D-printing of sub-micron sized photonic devices is, in most cases, very costly and impractical outside of a laboratory. Nonetheless, In-Vision is helping to overcome this challenge.
Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw virtually inaugurated the post office, the construction through 3D Printing carried out by Larsen & Toubro Limited with technological support from IIT Madras.
With the release of the latest software upgrade for its NanoOne platform of high resolution 3D-printers, UpNano has further pushed the limits of the fastest 2PP 3D-printer on the market. Now smart stitching can improve the quality of the final product and the already high printing speed can be increased even more.
A survey by Materialise, a global leader in 3D printing solutions, revealed that manufacturing companies are familiar with the unique benefits of 3D printing but face challenges as they onboard the technology and scale up to volume production.
You would be probably familiar with cost-saving initiatives especially if you are in the manufacturing sector. Whether they are periodic Kaizen events or an everyday management expectation, you know the pursuit of lower cost is never-ending. This resulted in the adoption of 3D printing.
Paulene Siew, Managing Director of Additive3D Asia explores how 3D printing can optimise the process of technological experimentation for robotics and automation companies, delivering results at a faster speed.
