Optimising protective clothing for potentially endangered occupational groups such as the police or security companies - that is the goal of the "StereoTex" research project at Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. In the project, researchers are currently developing a process that makes it possible to produce stab-resistant protective clothing from a combination of textiles and synthetic resins.

How far can additive manufacturing processes be automated? Ever since industrial 3D printing arrived in the industry, this question has been passionately discussed. Especially during the Covid 19 crisis with the associated supply bottlenecks, calls were made for a realignment of the supply chain. Additive manufacturing also often came into play here, although it requires a higher degree of automation for higher volumes. This was already a hotly discussed topic at Formnext 2021 - but how widespread is automation already in the industry and what solutions are there here?

Keystone Industries introduces KeyDenture Try-In, a high-quality 3D printing resin designed for manufacturing short-term trial dentures. Like all KeyPrint® 3D resins, KeyDenture Try-In is compatible with a variety of printers and workflows and has been subjected to a rigorous battery of tests to ensure the material is compliant with international regulatory and quality standards.

Desktop Metal and Henkel have announced the first initial workflow validations on the Xtreme 8K, the largest DLP build volume machine for the 3D Printing market. Over the past two years, the companies have collaborated on various unique applications on ETEC’s printer platforms for industrial and medical use. The onboarding of Loctite branded formulations represents both partners’ strategic vision to support volume production in additive manufacturing.

With the help of a BCN3D Sigma D25, MonkeyGripp creates ergonomic tank extenders for the perfect fit for each motorcycle-riding client. The process of creating such parts utilizes 3D printed molds to be filled with polyurethane foam. These accessories improve comfort, confidence, and stability when turning corners and hard braking.
