At Formnext 2022, Eplus3D will showcase its EP-M260 metal 3D printer, an industrial 3D printer with MPBF technology. Eplus3D also unveiled its EP-M1250 large-format multilaser machine for metal additive manufacturing on 1 November. The company says the new machine, which has a build envelope of 1258x1258x1350 mm3 and nine laser systems, will greatly facilitate the development of metal parts several metres in size.

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?
