3D Printing Put to Use to Create More Sensitive Strain Gauges for High-Temperature Applications

3D Printing Put to Use to Create More Sensitive Strain Gauges for High-Temperature Applications

What’s one major thing that airplanes, bridges, and weigh stations have in common? If you answered strain gauges, you were right. These simple devices measure the strain, or pull, on an object. The resistance of an object will change as you apply deformation to (stretch) the strain gauge, which will then tell you how much […]

Optomec Announces Aerosol Jet Technology to Print Electronics at Micron Level

Examining a snapshot of the 3D printing industry, it would seem that the process of using a high-tech machine to deposit layer after layer of materials and make a prototype or part shot to the forefront of the industrial world—as well as the desktop—and then just continued to accelerate. Before you can get used to […]

Electronics Manufacturer Uses Optomec’s Aerosol Jet Technology to Develop 3D Direct Printing Method

Electronics Manufacturer Uses Optomec’s Aerosol Jet Technology to Develop 3D Direct Printing Method

One piece of technology that we’re seeing less and less of – thankfully – is the antenna. Most people probably remember struggling with the so-called “rabbit ears” on old televisions, trying to find the magic positioning that would enable a picture to come through. Sometimes that required standing by the TV and holding the antennae […]
