VersaDamp(TM) 2000 Series vibration- and shock-isolation thermoplastic rubber (TPR) materials feature formulations that can be adjusted to optimize damping performance or durometer or both. Durometers range from 35 to 75 Shore A, and the TPRs feature widely varying energy control capabilities. The materials can be injection-molded into isolators and other equipment components, and can be used as anti-shock and vibration mounts for compactly designed devices with limited isolator sway space such as pagers and cellular phones.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
