Since 3D printing injection molds for medical devices, Worrell slashes lead times by a game-changing 95% in comparison to traditional tooling, with costs plummeting 70% 

Minneapolis, MN; Rehovot, Israel – October 30, 2014  Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, today announced its collaboration with design and product development company, Worrell, to accelerate medical device development through the use of 3D printed injection molding (which Worrell refers to as “3D IM”). Since 3D printing injection mold tools for medical devices, the company is producing injection molded prototypes using final production materials in 95% less time and at 70% less cost compared with traditional aluminium molds.

Medical device manufacturers traditionally face two main obstacles in getting medical devices to market: tooling costs and the FDA regulatory process. Traditional tooling is both costly and time-consuming, as new molds must be created every time a prototype is refined before manufacturing. To reduce potential iteration risks and tooling costs, Worrell uses Stratasys PolyJet-based 3D printers to create injection molding tools and then inject the same materials that will be used in a finished medical device, creating higher-fidelity prototypes. 

“We were recently approached by medical device start-up, MedTG, to design and engineer a dual-flow needleless blood collection system that reduced the need for multiple injections, thereby increasing patient comfort and hospital efficiency. Utilizing 3D printed injection molds to prototype the device, we were able to reduce the costs associated with traditional tooling by approximately 70%, as well as cutting times by 95%,” explains Kai Worrell, CEO at Worrell.

3D Printing Posted 2014-10-31T23:17:38-07:00

Today, Hewlett Packard changed everything. This is the end of hype in the 3D printing industry. 3D Printing Industry was invited to attend their event entitled, “Reimagine Possibilities” at 9am today in New York. HP delivered multiple technologies that are as transformative as any Apple technology of the last 10 years.

The presentation began with Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing & Personal Systems (PPS), talking about a new approach called “Blended Reality”. He talked about the familiar Jobs-ian paradigm of man as a tool builder, with computers being the ultimate tool.

According to Dion, “Our ability to deliver Blended Reality technologies will reduce the barriers between the digital and physical worlds, enabling us to express ourselves at the speed of thought – without filters, without limitations. This ecosystem opens up new market categories that can define the future, empowering people to create, interact and inspire like never before.”

Then he started talking about 3D printing.

The excitement in the room went sky high as he began to talk about how HP wants to solve the big three problems of current 3D printers: “speed, cost and reliability”.

Image 2

Talking about HP’s dominance in 2D printing, he talked about a new technology called “Multi Jet Fusion” a tool to trigger the next industrial revolution. To introduce the printer, he introduced Steve Nigro, the Senior Vice President of the Inkjet and Graphics businesses within HP’s Printing and Personal Systems (PPS) group. He and his team provide the leading ink- based printing solutions on the market that connect to mobility, cloud, and social media trends.

Right after stepping onstage he addressed the rumors that have been going on for a while in the 3D printing universe about Hewlett Packard. “A new approach to 3D printing. I’m saying a breakthrough. How do we define a breakthrough? First. Speed. You can print 10x faster than any 3D printing.   We are going to show you how we have broken through the limitation of speed, quality and cost. Finally it was time. They unveiled the machine.

hp 3d printing multi jet fusion

 

And it’s a game changer! Here are the incredible details and specs of the newHewlett Packard Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer:

It’s built with HP Thermal Inkjet technology, and features a unique synchronous architecture that significantly improves the commercial viability of 3D printing and has the potential to change the way we think about manufacturing.

· 10-Times Faster: Images entire surface areas versus one point at a time to achieve break-through functional build speeds that are at least 10 times faster than the fastest technology in the market today

· New Levels of Quality, Strength and Durability: Proprietary multi-agent printing process utilizing HP Thermal Inkjet arrays that simultaneously apply multiple liquid agents to produce best-in-class quality that combines greater accuracy, resiliency and uniform part strength in all three axis directions.

· Accuracy and Detail: Capable of delivering fully functional parts with more accuracy, finer details and smooth surfaces, and able to manipulate part and material properties, including form, texture, friction, strength, elasticity, electrical, thermal properties and more – beyond other 3D print processes.

· Achieves Break-through Economics: Unifies and integrates various steps of the 3D print process to reduce running time, cost, energy consumption and waste to significantly improve 3D printing economics.

HP is set to bring its 3D printing platform to commercial reality in 2016 (which could be in 14 months time, or 26 months time …)

When I saw the prints up close, the detail was more precise than laser sintering prints, and I found out from Ramon Pastor, the Vice
President & General manager of Large Format and 3D Printing, that it uses less energy and it doesn’t cook the plastic like SLS, allowing for more recycling of unused material. Truly phenomenal.

hp 3d print

Of course the Multi Jet Fusion had to print a part of itself first. Of course.

CEO of Shapeways Peter Weijmarshausen stopped by to endorse HP’s new 3D Ecosystem. 

The next announcement (still on the 3D printer) was equally staggering:

“We are also going to be announcing an Open Platform Technology. This means that others can come to HP and work with us, if they have an idea about a new material for example.”

What this means: Through this program, HP will continue to extend the capabilities of the HP 3D print platform throughout development and will provide a certification process for partners to drive materials innovation.

By inviting open collaboration, HP and contributors will be able “to achieve greater

flexibility and versatility with 3D printing materials beyond the current use of thermoplastics, which will enable new solutions in segments such as additive manufacturing and will expand applications for engineering, architecture and consumer goods. HP will also bring its color science expertise and the full-color capabilities of traditional HP printing to the 3D world in future-generations of its 3D print systems.

Next up, was a video featuring a rousing endorsement for the new technology ecosystem from Autodesk CEO Carl Bass and Terry Wohlers. They talked about how Hewlett Packard’s new 3D printer will help actually usher in a new age of 3D printing manufacturing.

Blended reality and the multi-jet fusion technology isn’t all.

Sprout was next.   Sprout is a new category of technology. It’s absolutely unbelievable. Except I saw it!

Introducing Sprout:

Ron Coughlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager Consumer Personal Systems, Printing and Personal Systems Group, was introduced next to do the unveiling.

First, he talked about how the genesis of Sprout began in R&D by some visionary engineers who wanted to create a system for people to create using their hands on a highly evolved technology. From the HP calculator, to a laptop to mobile, HP is a legendary innovator. The vision of Sprout is to “democratize creativity.”

HP Sprout hero

To be more precise, sprout is “a first-of-its-kind Immersive Computing platform that redefines the user experience and creates a foundation for future immersive technologies.” The first product available in HP’s Blended Reality ecosystem, Sprout by HP combines the power of an advanced desktop computer with an immersive, natural user interface to create a new computing experience. Combining a scanner, depth sensor, hi-resolution camera and projector into a single device, Sprout by HP allows users to take physical items and seamlessly merge them into a digital workspace. The system also delivers an unmatched collaboration platform, allowing users in multiple locations to collaborate on and manipulate a single piece of digital content in real-time.

“We are on the cusp of a transformative era in computing and printing,” said Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing & Personal Systems (PPS), HP. Then he made a remarkable statement: “Our ability to deliver Blended Reality technologies will reduce the barriers between the digital and physical worlds, enabling us to express ourselves at the speed of thought – without filters, without limitations. This ecosystem opens up new market categories that can define the future, empowering people to create, interact and inspire like never before.”

HP sprout display

This of course immediately reminded me of the Autodesk term “Reality Computing” which I’ve been writing about for the last few months. It’s basically a way to describe a new ecosystem where physical and digital reality are altered, designed and played with in an entirely new way.

Sprout is incredible. You can capture 3D objects with the state of the art camera system. You then use your fingers or a stylus to create, and manipulate these objects on a 23” touch HD screen (vertical), and a touch screen projector (horizontal).

A brand new innovation is real-time collaboration, where they can manipulate the same object in real time. It’s powered by an Intel core processor. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! I have to say, this was quite a stunning series of announcements. Oh, Sprout is also a full powered PC as well, with windows 8 (oh well).

So can you have and make apps for Sprout? Yes! They have first party apps, where you can edit vertically and horizontally.   First up? A Martha Stewart Design App, which she endorsed by video at the event.

Here are all the specs in one place:

Dual-screen Experience: A workspace designed for creative expression and human interaction with an integrated vertical HD touch screen coupled with a 20 point capacitive touch mat.

· The Sprout Illuminator: A projection system that scans and captures real-world objects in 3D, allowing the user to immediately interact and create.

· HP Workspace: A software platform built expressly for Sprout to take full advantage of the dual-screen experience to make working and creating seamless, intuitive and engaging.

· True Remote Collaboration: The way collaboration should be. An interface that advances how users work, collaborate and share, with simultaneous visual and workspace connectivity, allowing concurrent creativity and content manipulation.

· Advanced Platform: A next-generation computing platform featuring a powerful 4th generation Intel i7 Processor, 1TB of storage in an easy-to-use dual-screen interface, and a Windows 8.1 multi-touch experience.

The potential of Sprout by HP’s unique configuration is fully realized through the Sprout Marketplace, an application marketplace that contains a growing suite of applications that are optimized to take advantage of the Immersive Computing platform to enhance how users work, play and engage with entertainment.

The Sprout Marketplace currently contains a suite of Windows-based applications

designed uniquely for the dual-screen environment including the Martha Stewart

CraftStudio, DreamWorks Animation Story Producer, Crayola’s Draw & Sing, GestureWorks age 4 of 5 Gameplay and first party experiences from HP including Create, Collaborate and Capture, enabling users to easily capture physical objects, manipulate them in a digital environment, and collaborate and share their creations in new ways.

Another great announcement: today the HP Software Development Kit (SDK) is released. Sprout has 71 patents. Remotel collaboration, flow between 2 screens. New applications, including a range of creative applications for professionals, families, gamers and beyond, will continue to be added to the marketplace regularly. Sprout by HP is available for pre-order at hp.com today and will be available for purchase from November 9th. It’ll be in stores for Christmas. Oringinally available at Best Buy in an “amazing curated experienced” and Microsoft Stores on November 9th and then extended to SMB, Commercial and Education.

Giving Sprout to Creatives:

Next up, was artist Joshua Davis, who works with technology to make art. Focusing on the convergence of design and technology, a video showed him using the projector/scanner to create art that is both digital and physical.

 joshua davis hp sprout

Todd Selby, another artist, talked about a “knockout function” where you can take a picture and “knock out” a shape to play with.

This was hands down the most exciting press conference I’ve ever been to. There were so many gracious and hyper-informed HP staff on hand, and everyone had something amazing to contribute.

I was really struck by the great presentation, the great products and the restoration of innovation at one of America’s greatest companies of the 20th and now, 21st century.

The amazing new 3D ecosystem is a phenomenal addition to Hewlett Packard, and will change our industry forever.

And, like HP itself:

“It started with a vision of a few engineers.”

3D Printing Posted 2014-10-31T05:10:27-07:00

The nascent textile digital printing industry is projected to double in size every two years, as digital technology makes short runs and personalisation an increasingly profitable enterprise.

An Infotrends study found the global textile industry is valued at a trillion dollars, while the value of digitally printed textile garments, décor items, and industrial products was valued at US$10.3bn in 2012.

The research suggests rapid growth is ahead with sales of digital textile equipment and ink expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39 per cent, which means the market will more than double every two years.

The burgeoning sector is being driven by new digital printing technology that lowers barriers to entry for small printing companies, and opens up new markets based on shorter runs and greater personalisation.

Textile printing has in the past been done with rotary and flatbed screen printing, which needs individual screens for every colour and pattern used and makes short runs uneconomical.

The proliferation of digital textile printers, at a fraction of the cost and setup time compared to screen or offset, means even one-off personalised pieces are affordable and in fact can be an entire business model.

While the fashion industry is increasingly interested as it shies away from mass production, interior decoration is another market as curtains, blinds, furniture upholstery and carpets can now be customised.

Several digital textile printers have arrived on Australian shores this year and Australian printers looking to diversify into growth markets saw them on display at Visual Impact.

Epson launched textile printers fitted with its new PrecisionCore inkheads, including the SureColor F7100 for medium to high volume fabric and soft signage production.

Roland DG just launched its first ever textile printer with the 64 inch RT-640 dye sublimation transfer printer, available next February and running at 22sqm an hour.

Finally, Australian technology developer Impression Technology is offering dye sublimation printer and software packages for textile printing under its Pigment.com brand starting at $30,000.

Digital Textile Printing Posted 2014-10-31T05:08:33-07:00

TechNova launched the SmartJet LP112 digital inkjet press built on the revolutionary memjet waterfall technology. The new inkjet label press is an expansion on TechNova’s first concept inkjet label press, SmartJet-C showcased at Pamex 2013.

Speaking to PrintWeek India, CEO for digital imaging solutions at TechNova, said, “We are commercially launching the machine here.” He added, “If you ask me what’s the difference between the time when it was unveiled  at Pamex 2013 and now, I would say, we were talking more about the concept, a prototype then, how it was developed, the benefits that a customer can derive out of the machine. Here, apart from impressing upon the benefits, we are also letting the customers know that the product is available, and should they want to buy, we would be able to deliver it.”

The label press can print at a maximum print speed of 12 inches / second at 1600 x 800 dpi, making it one of the fastest in its category. At the highest print resolution of 1600x1600 dpi, the printer can print six inches / second.

The LP112, TechNova claims, is ideally suited for high-speed high-res print-on-demand labels on various media types with capabilities to change the content on the fly. This includes applications like pressure-sensitive labels, retail tags, professional documents and many other applications.

Swarnangka said, “We are looking at two different segments. One is definitely the flexo players, who would like to cater to the print-on-demand market, or someone looking to supply small quantities of labels or maybe advance copies of labels, a typical digital requirement. We have also observed that this particular device has found a large fan-base among manufacturers like TechNova who will have an in-house labels requirement.”

Accordingly, the immediate benefit that one gets from such presses are: zero-level inventory, full control of print jobs, plus customised marketing information that can be printed over the labels. For example, a tiles manufacturer, wants to create say, a marketing promo plan, he can do it in-house.

TechNova also has a solution for post-press in the form of machines that could die-cut, embellish, and foil.

The SmartJet has been installed at a few beta sites and there a long list of interested customers, “As of now, there is only so much I can disclose,” said Swarnangka.

Production expert identifies new technologies that are sure to help improve your packaging operation.

 

Pack Expo is going to be great this year. I always say that and am never wrong. People who know think one of this year's key themes is going to more intelligent, more interconnected machines. Not only will there be more intelligence, it will be decentralized and may appear in unexpected ways.

Here are some of the technologies I look forward to seeing:

[Note: Use the red View Gallery button above to launch the Slideshow.]

 

1. Robotics

Industrial robots aren't new but they used to be expensive and dumb, best suited to repetitive operations. Better software—and the computing power to run it—combined with cameras now allow robots to locate parts at random and place them as needed. Series elastic actuators can make some robots intrinsically safe, eliminating the need for safety cages. If the robot's arm bumps a person, it stops.Rethink Robotics demonstrated this to me with its Baxter robot. Being hit by the robot arm was no different from being gently elbowed in a movie queue.

Costs have come down dramatically. Baxter costs less than $25,000 complete and has capabilities that would have cost ten times that just a dozen years ago. Several companies offer industrial grade SCARA type robots for less than $10,000.

Robots have long been available with 2D machine vision. This allowed them to locate objects on a plane and pick them up. Now, we are starting to see robots with 3D vision. This now allows them to pick random parts from a jumbled pile, orient them and place them in a specific location. I predict that in the near future we will see robots on the plant floor picking individual parts from bins or conveyors without the need for pre-staging. Sounds expensive, right? Some of this is being done using Microsoft's Kinect XBox controllers that cost less than $200 at the local electronics store.

The constantly improving price/capability of robots means we will see them in some radical applications. One Thai company will be showing a robotic filler that may revolutionize packaging machine design. Bottles are spaced on a servo-driven conveyor. As the bottles pass, 10 filling nozzles mounted on a robot arm enter, fill and withdraw. This design eliminates much of the hardware of the typical liquid filler and virtually all of the mechanical changeover.

 

2. Sensors and inspection devices

Accelerometers, for detecting vibration, used to be expensive but are now in every smart phone. That makes them cheap enough to place in every motor, transmission or bearing. Failures can be taken care of before they occur rather than waiting for catastrophe.

Vision systems have always been limited to inspecting what they can see.Pharmaworks has recently developed a 3D inspection system for inspecting tablets in blister cavities. This allows them to inspect the volume of a tablet in the blister as well as the surface.

Any inspection system can only be as good as its analysis. It is common for packaging machines to shut down if they detect several defects in a row, such as three miscapped bottles. If every 27th bottle is miscapped, most inspection systems will reject them but take no further action. Real-time SPC (Statistical Process Control) built into the system can recognize patterns and sound alarms or even stop a machine. Failure modes that appear random on the surface can be identified once the pattern is recognized.

 

3. Printing and coding equipment

Control of label inventories is a real chore especially in heavily regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals. One solution, not practical in the past, is to inventory unprinted ("bright") labels and print them at time of use. This has become standard practice on secondary packaging, such as corrugated shippers. Several companies will be showing roll-to-roll label printing systems usingMemjet inkjet technology to digitally print high-resolution, full process color labels on demand. The killer app for this is integrating it with an automated labeling machine to allow printing and applying of primary labels at production speeds. It's not here yet but I see it coming in the near future.

Thermal inkjet coding, much of it based on Hewlett-Packard technology, continues to grow in capability and popularity. One drawback up to now has been the ink. It has not been possible to print on most non-absorbent surfaces like plastic or varnished board. This has changed with the recent introduction of solvent based inks, opening the way to many more applications.

 

4. Drives and controls

Motors have downsized over the years from large central motors to small individual motors at the point of use. The next logical step is decentralization of control and we will see this on the show floor. Instead of a single control in one large cabinet, controllers and drivers are now located at the motors.

Some companies, such as B&R Automation, put the controllers right in the motor. Others, such as Kollmorgen, mount them in small, separate boxes at the point of use. Each of these approaches has its advantages but both avoid much of the wiring and complexity required when the controllers reside in a central panel.

Smarter machines become visibly apparent in some of the new HMIs (Human Machine Interface). Think of them as tablet computers on steroids. HMIs used to be primarily for control but can now include a wealth of information, including machine manuals, machine animations, video and pictures, SPC charts, alarms and pretty much anything that you can imagine.

Yes, PackExpo 2014 is going to be exciting. As always, we will see some interesting new mechanical concepts. The real magic is going to take place behind the scenes in the details. Smarter machines will be simpler machines, more reliable machines and more effective machines.

Who could ask for more?
