ACEO launches US based open print lab
WACKER is launching its first U.S. based ACEO® Open Print Lab. The new facility, located at WACKER's Silicone R&D facility in Ann Arbor, MI, is equipped with 3D printers able to process a broad range of silicone rubber with different Shore A hardnesses and in varying colors.
ACEO® 3D printing with electrically conductive silicone rubber
WACKER's ACEO team presents its latest innovation - 3D printing with electrically conductive silicone elastomers.
ACEO signed up as member of International Advanced Manufacturing 3D
The membership allows ACEO to leverage the IAM 3D Hub end-to-end solutions platform, to partner with the network's stakeholders and to develop new technologies in cooperation with Leitat, IAM's technological center hosting the facilities in Barcelona.
Silicone 3D printing for soft robotic grippers
Soft robotics mimic living organisms and adapt to their surroundings. Increased flexibility and adaptability for accomplishing tasks as well as improved safety when working around humans, stimulate the use in food industry, advanced manufacturing and e-commerce.

New product announcements from the IDTechEx Show! exhibition hall
From the Exhibition Hall at the IDTechEx Show! in Santa Clara last week came a wide variety of new product announcements and press releases. Here we summarize some of the announcements.
Will PTFE be the next 3D printable material?
The range of available materials is one of the key hurdles to adoption for industrial 3D printing. 3D printing is being rapidly adopted by product manufacturers all around the world, but it still can't compete with many other manufacturing techniques with respect to material diversity.
WACKER jumps into 3D printing materials
In their Q2 interim report, WACKER have revealed they are now able to 3D print silicone. Silicone is a useful material to be able to 3D print because injection-moulded silicone is a favourite choice for prototyping.
Scientists research safe battery technology for electric vehicles
Over the next three years, 15 partners from German science and the automotive and supply industry will research how the safety of lithium ion batteries can be further improved for electric and hybrid vehicles.
