<span class=“caps”>SLM</span> Solutions share price and product portfolio

The his­to­ry of SLM Solu­tions AG goes back to 1863 with the found­ing of the Ara­mayo Bis­muth mines in Bolivia. The fol­low­ing years, the com­pa­ny expand­ed until it was list­ed on the Lon­don stock exchange in 1906. After renam­ing the com­pa­ny to MCP in 2008, the company’s mines and chem­i­cals divi­sion was trans­formed into a […]

<span class=“caps”>3D</span> Systems and <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing market – rising stars?

3D sys­tems marks the begin­ning and tra­di­tion­al home for the 3D print­ing world. The founder Chuck Hull invent­ed stere­olyt­ic 3D print­ing which was the tech­no­log­i­cal ground for the com­pa­ny. In this form of 3D print­ing, a resin is hard­ened lay­er by lay­er with lasers cre­at­ing the 3 dimen­sion­al object. Since his inven­tion, the com­pa­nies prod­uct […]

Legal issues with <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing for private and business

This brief overview of legal issues with 3D print­ing tech­nolo­gies is intend­ed to pro­vide a short glimpse for pri­vate users and busi­ness­es. For those who want to get into the detail of the top­ic, we rec­om­mend the books “Socio-Legal Aspects of the 3D Print­ing Rev­o­lu­tion” and “3D Print­ing, Intel­lec­tu­al Prop­er­ty and Inno­va­tion”.

How to secure qualitative <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing results around the globe?

In this blog post, we’re not talk­ing about qual­i­ty issues for desk­top 3D print­ers, but rather dis­cuss large high-per­for­mance SLS machines. These 3D print­ers pro­duce com­po­nents e.g. for air­crafts, med­i­cine etc. which all require high-qual­i­ty stan­dards. Qualitative 3D printing results around the globe We won’t dis­cuss usu­al qual­i­ty prob­lems for objects but rather a spe­cif­ic […]

Bionic and geometrical structures in <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing

One of the biggest chal­lenges that addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies face is a far-reach­ing mind shift. So far, users of 3D print­ers (also known as “Mak­ers”) try to build con­ven­tion­al prod­ucts with the addi­tive tech­nol­o­gy. They hope to cre­ate an “aha” effect for cus­tomers and com­pa­nies con­vinc­ing them that the tech­nol­o­gy can pro­vide the same qual­i­ty […]

How <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing will kill mass-production in the long-term

The 3D print­ing hype in 2015 caused the pub­lic and busi­ness world to over­es­ti­mate the progress of addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing. Peo­ple were already talk­ing about the end of tra­di­tion­al and indus­tri­al mass pro­duc­tion. Today, a few years lat­er, every­one under­stands that these con­clu­sions were pre­ma­ture. Nowa­days, addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing is used as an addi­tion­al tech­nol­o­gy for cer­tain […]
