At the IDTechEx Show! Callaghan Innovation showcases MicroMaker http://micromaker3D.com , a new type of 3D printing for microstructures. MicroMaker enables fast, easy and affordable fabrication of miniaturized structures for innumerable applications such as printed electronics, wearables, sensors and point of care.
The FluidFM μ3Dprinter, developed by Cytosurge AG, directly prints microscopic and submicroscopic complex metal structures at room temperature and ambient pressure onto existing objects or surfaces with pinpoint (micrometer) accuracy. This opens new horizons in domains such as microelectronics, MEMS or surface functionalization.
For ten years the 3D laboratory at the Technical University of Berlin has been developing applications in the fields of 3D scan, 3D print and 3D immersive (interactive) projection. The applications originate in many application fields like; mathematics and natural sciences, engineering sciences, medicine and medical technologies, geo sciences, archaeology, palaeontology, architecture, arts and design, museums etc. The 3D laboratory cooperates with research and other public institutions such as museums, as well as small and medium sized companies. Last but not least the laboratory contributes to the university teaching and provides knowledge transfer to its cooperation partners.
From prototyping and sampling for consumer goods and electronics, to industrial and medical and dental market applications, 3D printing is proving a practical, clean part of the product design and production cycle. Ricoh’s technology and services help customers lead the way as the market rapidly moves toward additive manufacturing and 3D production.
BotFactory brings the future of electronic circuit fabrication to your desktop with our line of PCB Printers
Just like a 3D Printer, their small circuit printers allows users to prototype in minutes instead of weeks, all at the click of a button. After pulling the Squink or SV2 PCB Printer from the box, users are guided through a seamless process that will take users from a bare substrate to a fully assembled and functional circuit board in a matter of minutes.
Each PCB Printer includes an inkjet printhead that can dispense very fine droplets of conductive ink and insulating ink, allowing users to create multilayered rigid and flexible circuits on FR-4, Kapton or any substrate of your choice.
In addition, each printer has two heads for dispensing glues and solder pastes, and another to pick-and-place components, allowing users to assemble PCBs right at the users desktop.
The Voltera V-One is a PCB Printer for early circuit board prototyping and PE experimentation.
Voltera helps industry leading businesses and academic institutions accelerate their product development and R&D initiatives by putting the circuit board factory on their desk. Print inks, drill vias, dispense solder pastes, and even reflow components right on the machine. Use it with your own inks or substrates as well!

At the forefront of nanotechnology, additive manufacturing, life sciences and single cell biology, Cytosurge FluidFM µ3Dprinter is the world’s first 3D printer capable of delivering sub-micron resolution in direct metal printing, while offering scalability and good prospects in both production cost and speed. The FluidFM technology opens a new world for metal object manufacturing and enables research opportunities in fields such as microelectronics, semiconductors, surface modification, microbots, sensors, material science and many other fields. Virtually any design can be offered to the system, including overhanging structures with 90 degree angles, without support structures or post processing steps. High-precision surface modification processes can also be executed by printing ultra-thin or structured objects and by depositing multiple metals at the target surface. With the FluidFM µ3Dprinter various metals like Cu, Ag, Au, Pt can be printed. The printing of other metals (Sn, Cd, Cr, Ni etc.) and various alloys are under investigation. Cytosurge won Best Development in 3D Printing Award Europe 2017. Filed at the IDTechEx Show!

Kiss & Tell, an ARM Powered Shoe. Kiss & Tell was a concept that turned into a reality all done on ARM Technology. The idea, a shoe that can change the patterns on the straps based on the touch of a finger from an app on your mobile. For example, if you were invited to have tea with the Queen, the Union Jack could be displayed in seconds; if it was Valentine’s Day, hearts could be flashing. The sole, upper, and interchangeable heels were designed in Tinkercad on an ARM Powered Chromebook, printed using an ARM Powered 3D printer, and then spray painted with custom car paint. The circuitry and the LED designs were both done on Raspberry Pi 3. The shoe is powered by an ARM Cortex-M0+ that sits on an Arduino MKR1000 board that is hidden in the shoe’s upper. You can contact Sandra Larrabee of ARM Marketing to learn more about ARM or Kiss & Tell here: firstname.lastname@example.org
