SPEE3D Exhibiting at Space Symposium

For another week running, Australian company SPEE3D will be exhibiting at a large event, this one being the 36th Space Symposium, from August 23-26, by the Space Foundation. Along with Austrade and Phillips Federal, US representatives from SPEE3D will attend the event for global space professionals and show how its superfast metal 3D printing can be used for space applications. During the event, attendees are able to examine space issues from a variety of perspectives, and exhibitors and speakers are able to focus the attention on critical space issues and promote further dialogue.

Space Symposium attendees consistently represent all sectors of the space community from multiple spacefaring nations: space agencies; commercial space businesses and associated subcontractors; military, national security and intelligence organizations; cyber security organizations; federal and state government agencies and organizations; research and development facilities; think tanks; educational institutions; space entrepreneurs and private space travel providers; businesses engaged in adapting, manufacturing or selling space technologies for commercial use; and media that inspire and educate the general public about space.”

The hybrid event is sold out in terms of in-person attendance in Colorado Springs, but you can still register here to attend the symposium virtually.

NAMIC & SGInnovate Discussing Additive Food Manufacturing

During an hour-long panel discussion on Tuesday, August 24th, NAMIC and SGInnovate invite you to learn more about “Additive Food Manufacturing for Personalised Meals,” as part of their collaborative series on “The Future of Additive Manufacturing.” The discussion, moderated by Suchitra Narayan, Director – Venture Building at SGInnovate, will go from 4-5 pm SGT, which means 4-5 am in EST, and 3D printing and food experts from the Food Innovation & Resource Center (FIRC) of Singapore Polytechnic, the Future Ready Food Safety Hub (FRESH) initiative, Natural Machines of Foodini fame, and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) will discuss how the technology empowers everyone with personalized nutrition, which is especially important for dysphagia patients and the elderly.

“The use of 3D food printing technologies enables customisation of the food’s colour, texture and flavour, to replicate actual food and most importantly, the ability to customize nutrients. By being able to customise essential food nutrients, it is foreseeable that food 3D printing will become a valuable technology in the healthcare and eldercare sector.”

ASTM’s AM General Personnel Certificate Course Continues

Taught by 18 industry experts across eight modules, ASTM International’s AM Center of Excellence (AMCOE) is now on the third week of its virtual General Personnel Certificate Course. The third and fourth modules will be held this week, with “Mechanical Testing” held from 9 am – 1 pm EST on Tuesday the 24th and “AM Safety” from 9-11 am EST on Wednesday the 25th. During the first class, Nima Shamsaei, Auburn University, and Rachael Andrulonis, WSU-NIAR, will discuss fatigue testing and characterization, among other topics, and Francois Richard, P&W Canada, will provide an outline of safety considerations, including insights on risk assessment strategies like mitigation measures and identifying hazards.

“This course will equip attendees with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and will allow them to earn a General AM Certificate that will serve as the foundation and pre-requisite for earning future specialized role-based AM certificates through the ASTM AM CoE. Attendees will complete a multiple-choice exam upon course completion.”

3D Systems: Metal AM to Advance Semiconductor Performance

At 2 pm EST on the 24th, 3D Systems is holding a webinar called “Advancing Semiconductor Capital Equipment Performance with Metal Additive Manufacturing.” Scott Green, Principal Solutions Leader at the company focused on this very topic, will be speaking during the webinar about a variety of things, such as the benefits of using AM to advanced semiconductor capital equipment performance and how to successfully integrate the technology in order to produce high-performing, organized parts. Attendees will also hear about a few featured applications on this topic, including manifold and tubing flow optimization and wafer table thermal management.

“To accelerate innovation, semiconductor capital equipment manufacturers are turning to 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM). AM removes the limitations of traditional manufacturing technologies to enable functionally improved components, and a seamless transition from prototyping to low-volume production of complex parts. This approach can speed delivery of new capital equipment technologies to fabs that are designed to deliver improved productivity, wafer yield, and overall system quality & longevity.”
