Mitsubishi Motors North America of Detroit released the Concept-RA, a coupe that matches high performance with environmental sensitivity. The Concept-RA is powered by a high-output, low-emissions 2.2-l, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel engine. To comply with U.S. emissions standards, the diesel relies on a new catalytic converter system that utilizes diesel oxidation catalyst, NOx trap catalyst and diesel particulate filter technologies.
The Concept-RA also makes use of lightweight materials in construction to help reduce vehicle mass for improved performance, fuel economy and safety. The coupe features a new body structure that utilizes an aluminum space frame made from extruded aluminum sections and die-cast aluminum components. The hood, fenders and other outer panels are molded from impact-resistant and easily recycleable plastic resin.

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.
