View the following video showing the process of using both additive and subtractive manufacturing to go from a concept to a product. Thank you to our friends at Renishaw for sharing this wonder video.
The trophy was recently awarded to the team of Lisa Brock and Yanli Zhu from the University of Waterloo and their design of biodegradable packaging made from mushroom roots. canadamakes.ca/canada-makes-ann…eam-3d-challenge/
The award was presented during the first Conference of NSERC Network for Holistic Innovation in Additive Manufacturing (HI-AM) at the University of Waterloo.
Students were asked to focus on creating innovative tools or products that reduce our environmental footprint using additive manufacturing in tandem with conventional manufacturing approaches.
Lisa Brock and Yanli Zhu proposed the design of biodegradable packaging made from mushroom roots and agricultural waste using binder jetting additive manufacturing. The packaging design was created by optically 3D scanning the object. Approximately 10% of materials used in additive manufacturing can be recycled into new plastics, and the rest are disposed. The options for disposal are landfills and incineration, both of which increase the amount of greenhouse gases. Therefore, new biobased biodegradable materials must be developed to decrease the negative environmental impacts of these additive manufacturing plastics. https://youtu.be/XKU-BHKuGZI
Join Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) and Renishaw Canada for a 3D metal printing tour to see metal laser powder bed technology in action on December 11, 2014 in Mississauga. This event will give you an opportunity to visit Renishaw’s demonstration centre and learn about new developments in metrology for additive manufacturing, as well as see the World’s first 3D printed titanium bicycle.
Discover how SMEs can tap into government funding programs such as CME’s SMART Advanced Technologies for Global Growth to support your operations through investment in technologies for advanced industrial processes.
