At this year’s Global Industry exhibition, more than seventy equipment manufacturers have come together to build a 1,000 m2 working demonstration of a connected factory. Omron’s contribution to the production line includes a pair of our LD robots which will transfer the personalized medals that will be made for each visitor between the different cells
Do you remember Terminator 2, where the shape-shifting robot rises from a pool of liquid? Well, that inspired the researchers from the company Carbon3D to change their perspective on 3D printing. Instead of printing layer for layer, this technology ‘grows’ the parts. Watch the video to get an impression.
One of Carbon3D’s co-founders Joseph DeSimone, who is also a professor of chemistry at North Carolina State and the University of North Carolina, explains in more detail the technique behind the new 3D printing approach in this interesting TEDx talk.
