For NPE 2006, Ferromatik Milacron and FOBOHA teamed up to display a Ferromatik Milacron model K-TEC250S-2F-DETW injection molding machine with a secondary injection unit and FOBOHA's patented twin turning-cube. For this machine, Milacron mounted the secondary injection unit at a 40-degree angle on top of the moving platen. The change reduces the floor space required for a side-mounted secondary injection unit and saves cycle time by allowing the injection nozzle to stay mated to the hot runner system during clamp movement. Designed to be extremely flexible, the K-TEC machine is made on demand from standard available components. "You may not find another one configured exactly like it," says Ferromatik's Hare. "It is made of standard components — standard assemblies — all configured to generate machine that best suits this particular application."
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
