There is a theatre play “Waiting for Godot” and that is how the current situation feels – only with the difference that we wait for the old normal. While we wait for shops, restaurants, bars, factories, gyms, swimming pools and so many others to reopen we dream of the things that we wish to do again: go on holiday, have our favourite food at table in our restaurant, go to the pools, have that missed birthday party with lots of our friends present, go to work, have these little chitchats with our colleagues, having fun at the beach, the playing fields and events to name just a few.

As a result of the Covid 19 crisis, a global petition calls on the World Health Organization (WHO) to define clear guidelines for minimum air humidity in commercial and public buildings. The petition is based on numerous studies that show that a mean humidity level of 40 to 60% can prevent infections of the respiratory tract.

The world is in need of more helping hands in order to contain the COVID-19 crisis. Due to their intuitive design, helmet-based ventilators could alleviate the shortage. Its simplistic setup enables a wider range of medical personnel to operate the technology, reallocating some of the pressure placed on certain members of the trained staff.

Helmet-based ventilation proved itself efficient in Italy, where the new coronavirus COVID-19 has hit the hardest so far. As various regions of the world gear towards the biggest pandemic spread, hospitals, investors and manufacturers need precise information related to this revolutionary method of non-invasive ventilation.

These are exciting times in the additive manufacturing (AM) sector. There is real momentum behind the drive towards the use of AM as an alternative to conventional manufacturing processes. However, with this drive comes a necessary focus on and scrutiny of the entire manufacturing process chain surrounding AM.

New manufacturing method, called Additive Technologies, is the method with possibility of 3D-models layer-by-layer manufacturing. One of the most widely used methods of additive manufacturing of metal products is Selective laser melting. For melting metal in powder form, an ytterbium fiber laser is used with power from 200 to 1000 W, the radiation of which is focused to the required location with help of high-speed drive mirrors.

3rd Munich Technology Conference to discuss additive manufacturing’s full industrialization

Additive manufacturing is transforming markets. Scalability, cost and production efficiency present challenges to the commercialization of this rapidly evolving technology. Its progression from visionary technology to mainstream commercialization will be the key topic of discussion at the 3rd annual Munich Technology Conference on Additive Manufacturing (MTC3) October 8-10, 2019, at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. Speakers will look at technical and regulatory challenges surrounding the technology today and assess the role of innovation in the future of this exciting field.
