The EMARS environmental compliance software from Synapsis Technology Inc. of Spring House, Pa. now tracks the European Union’s recently published “Candidate List” of 15 substances of very high concern (SVHC), which is part of REACH.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published the list of 15 SVHC on October 28. The list includes substances with “intrinsic hazardous properties” such as carcinogens, mutagens and substances that are toxic to reproduction. The ECHA indicated it is already in the process of adding more substances to the list – which is expected to grow to more than 1,000 substances.
To ensure compliance with REACH, manufacturers need to track and report the presence of SVHC in their products. The EMARS tool for complying with REACH SVHC is designed to help manufacturers manage their compliance.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
