3D Printing & Printed 3D Electronics
Engineering Materials 7/1/2013 19 comments Combining a conformal printed electronics process with 3D printing in the same machine could speed up manufacturing, cut costs, and give engineers more design freedom. It's not that far away.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
