New form factors for IoT products with 3D Printing Electronics

3d printing

As the world of 3D-printing is evolving, electronics is quickly becoming a new key topic for. Functional elements such as sensors, switches and printed circuit boards are now being integrated into 3D-printed products, paving the way for exciting new markets, applications and opportunities.

Although 3D Printing is percieved as a low volume manufacturing technology, more and more companies come with new solutions.

For instance Neotech AMT. The CEO of this company, Martin Hedges, will give a presentation at the 2021 edition of the 3D Printing Electronics Conference (21 January 2021), titled ‘ Scalable 3D Printed Electronics – from “Fully Additive” to High Volume’.

This presentation will review the state-of-the-art related to the production of 3D mechatronic systems using Additive Manufacturing (AM) and review developments for scaling the processes through all stages, from one off prototyping to high volume manufacture.


Another example is the TINKER project, about Sensor fabrication via additive manufacturing for automotive sector.

This European project will be presented by Leo Schranzhofer, Project Manager / Research Scientist, Profactor GmbH at the same 3D Printing Electronics Conference, titled ‘Sensor package fabrication via additive manufacturing for automotive sector – An introduction to the TINKER project

This H2020 project, coordinated by Leo Schranzhofer, PROFACTOR, started at 01.10.2020. Notion Systems and PV nanocell are partners in the consortium and will be mentioned in the talk.

The vision of TINKER is to provide a new cost- and resource efficient pathway for RADAR and LIDAR sensor package fabrication with high throughput up to 250units/min, improved automation by 20%, improved accuracy by 50% and reliability by a factor of 100 to the European automotive and microelectronic industry via additive manufacturing and inline feedback control mechanisms.

Industry-leading Cybersecurity and IoT Experts Form IoT Cybersecurity Alliance

AT&T*, IBM, Nokia, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec and Trustonic are joining forces to innovate in the security space. They’ll use their combined expertise to help tackle today’s top Internet of Things (IoT) security challenges.

This IoT Cybersecurity Alliance combines industry-leading security providers and IoT experts. The group will research and raise awareness of ways to better secure the IoT ecosystem.

As the number and kinds of connected devices multiply, so have the security risks. In the past 3 years, AT&T has seen a 3,198% increase in attackers scanning for vulnerabilities in IoT devices. Continue reading “Industry-leading Cybersecurity and IoT Experts Form IoT Cybersecurity Alliance”

Student at University of Twente Builds Multi-Material DLP 3D Printer

There are basically two ways to go about making multi-material objects with photopolymer resin-based 3D printing processes. One is based on material science and uses inkjet 3D printing technologies, such as Stratasys’ Polyjet and 3D Systems’ MJM, to release and instantly cure different materials in the same print job.

NEUROTiQ – 3D Printed Headdress Monitors and Exhibits the States of the Wearer’s Brain

Imagine a time in the future when communication is not done through verbal speech, perhaps not even with hand motions or facial expressions. Imagine a time when we can speak to one another, no matter what our native languages are, via signals that our brains send to each other.
