When you think of GE Energy, you usually think of huge power-generating equipment. But at MD&M West next week GE Energy will introduce patent-pending Aspire hydrophilic ePTFE membrane.
The new fluoropolymer technology eliminates alcohol pre-wetting of cartridge filters that can be time consuming and expensive.
GE Energy says its Aspire hydrophilic ePTFE membrane meets the same criteria for bacteria retention, flow rate, and chemical resistance as hydrophobic ePTFE membranes.
I’ll be at MD&M West next week to check out the latest materials and assembly technologies for medical designers and manufacturers. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s something you’d like me to check out.
In his keynote address at the RAPID 2015 conference last week, Made In Space CTO Jason Dunn gave an update on how far his company and co-development partner NASA have come in their quest to bring 3D printing to the space station -- and beyond.
A composite based on a high-performance PEEK-like resin we told you about two years ago when it was still in R&D has now been licensed by the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) for commercial manufacturing.
Microsoft, HP, Dassault, and other industry heavyweights in 3D printing have launched a new 3DP file format, 3MF. The consortium says the spec will more fully describe a 3D model and will be interoperable with multiple applications, platforms, services, and printers.
