The seven-axis Viper 1200 CNC fiber-placement system is a compact version of the larger Viper 3000. The system extends the full benefits of computer-controlled fiber placement to makers of smaller, highly contoured structural aircraft composite parts, such as tail and wing spars, pivot shafts, and flex beams. Viper 1200 provides a one-step fabrication process for the manufacture of simple or complex, symmetrical or asymmetrical, solid or core sandwich advanced composite parts.
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.
