  • According to foreign media "3D print" website reported on May 3rd, the Australian meat and livestock industry association MLA is a non-profit research organization before the red meat, launched a new 3D printing products for consumers to choose beef. The organization for the import of a Holland manufacturing meat water flow printer, specifically for meat food manufacturing complex of various shapes.Minced meat products in the water is two times of cutting, by-product or process, such as meat or offal powder etc.. It can be used as raw material for 3D printing to make meat products, so as to reduce the production of intermediate links, and to avoid the loss of food processing, transportation and packaging.Last year, the MLA society decided to start making 3D meat dishes. Have heard the news media are curious, 3D printing can produce delicious beef products? Will someone be ready to eat it? The exciting thing is that the organization has come up with a clear slogan that 3D printing should be presented to the public as part of cooking.MLA is not the only adventurer in the field of 3D printing meat products, although it has unique ideas about visceral print design, but it is not widely known. It's just the achievement with a 3D printer prepared 5 minced meat food in addition to water printing, 3D printing technology is very familiar with the meat food.MLA chef Sam Burke has been personally tasting print food, he introduced 3D printing technology to the production of appetizers and meat products. Researchers believe that the past "secondary" status in cooking meat can also be used to make an ideal food, such as quaint burrito or pie. Some people look at the invention in a new light, but MLA is making serious use of the 3D printer to produce the next generation of meat.In order to solve the problem of hunger, scientists have suggested that people in a dish of meat edible tissue laboratory, now has a 3D printer, was considered useless scraps of water also come in handy. MLA members point out that this technique is not intended to replace the existing sausages and steaks, but in some cases, 3D foods are desirable. For example, it will bring more low-cost accessories for making hamburgers, thereby amplifying the fast-food industry profit channels.3D prints the steak style, compared with the real Australian steak, although inexpensive, but similar in appearance, taste good. The export price of high-quality Australia steak $50 a kilo, but the minced pork products is far lower than the price. If slaughterhouses through new technology will print into water and minced meat food, and fast food industry joint development, it will obtain huge profits.The researchers added that 3D technology can not only print the minced meat water, non organic meat can print biosynthesis, the vegetarian and animal rights activists are also good news. In addition, for children who do not like to eat vegetables, parents can also use 3D food printer, print rich variety of vegetables pancakes, made into children's favorite style, easily let them take balanced nutrition. MLA said that although the 3D meat printer is expensive now, the future may be like a microwave oven, becoming a commonly used kitchen appliance and going into every household.

  • The metal 3D printing technology has gradually moved to the production field, plays an important role in the manufacturing of complex components or small batch production, GE, Airbus, Honeywell and other well-known manufacturing users in the world in recent years has established increasing material manufacturing center, and more than one metal 3D printing equipment installation. In addition to these large manufacturing enterprises, some segments of the small and medium-sized manufacturing users have also installed metal 3D printing equipment, and to create enterprises in the field of increasing material manufacturing competitiveness.We know that in each manufacturing production safety norms, there is need to comply with all the production line or each workshop in the well, with metal 3D printing equipment more and more to the enterprise production workshop, the user should be done to ensure the safety of production? What are the security risks that need to be circumvented in the use of metal 3D printing equipment? In this period, mainly in the small laser melting metal powder bed 3D printing equipment and printing materials, for example, lists the factors of safety hazards exist, provide a reference for the safety of users, regulate the operation of metal 3D printing devices.Risks in the use of powders and inert gasesA powder bed laser melted metal 3D printer uses metal powder with a particle size of 10-70 microns. This type of powder material has the risk of fire or explosion, in addition, the body's long-term exposure to powder particles and inhalation will also pose a hidden danger to health.In the powder bed laser melting process, the laser partially melts the metal powder. The process is carried out in inert gas (argon or nitrogen), which produces oxygen in a closed environment, which is also the second source of risk. In addition, a certain amount of "smoke" will be produced during laser melting of metal powders, which will be deposited in the print room and filter. The particles in the smoke are finer than the metal powder itself, and there is a similar safety hazard to the metal powder, so regular cleaning is necessary.To sum up, there are four main hazards in the process of laser melting in powder bed, such as fire and explosion, powder inhalation and contact, inert gas choking and material waste on the environment.

  • [China intelligent manufacturing network intelligence made news] in addition to 3D printing research and production, some of the leading enterprises have now turned to the 3D printing platform system design and development. 3D printing industry from manufacturing equipment to the development of service platform transformation of the initial trend. This may be a process for all industries in the field of intelligent manufacturing.Recently, the trend of the Internet of things industry from the terminal device to the service platform has become increasingly evident. At the same time, a similar shift has surfaced in the field of 3D printing. In addition to the development and production of 3D printing equipment, some of the leading enterprises have already turned their attention to the design and development of 3D printing platform system. Two forces from the manufacturing giant and the 3D printing company contributed to the initial unfolding of the situation.Manufacturing giants have moved to optimize services with the 3D print platformWith the arrival of the "4 age", most of the traditional manufacturing giants with strong strength have launched technological explorations to seek novelty and change. 3D printing, as a manufacturing technology with potential for subversion, is undoubtedly the focus of their attention. 3D printing platform construction, naturally these manufacturing giant participation. On this year's situation, in this regard, more force is SIEMENS and general purpose.Last month, SIEMENS in the 2017 Hannover Messe announced its plans to develop a collaboration platform based on the new site, so as to achieve the required product design and 3D printing production in the global manufacturing industry through it. At present, the team SIEMENS product lifecycle management software is the development of a new online platform, the ultimate goal is to establish a qualified product designer, work shop, 3D, OEM, printer parts buyers material suppliers, factories and other "online micro ecological system".And SIEMENS's construction purpose is slightly different, General Motors will be its 3D printing platform service object set for each manufacturer, and the role of the platform is mainly evaluation and guidance. Earlier this month, GM and non profit enterprise SME in cooperation with the Florida Institute of Technology, developed an online evaluation system, called "additive manufacturing technology in order to provide independent assessment", "expert system" for the manufacturer, to determine the best machines, materials and processes for a given part and application.3D printing company leveraging the Internet of things to accelerate the construction of service platformTraditional manufacturing tycoons are so keen on the development of 3D printing platforms, let alone the leading enterprises in the field of 3D printing. With a strong equipment manufacturing infrastructure, coupled with the power of things, 3D printing platform has quickly become the next strategic focus of such companies.Recently, 3D Systems announced that it will work with the nearly 30 year history of the Internet of things company PTC, plans to the company's research and development platform ThingWorx embedded into their 3D printers. This decision is part of a plan to shift from prototype to 3D print production, which will maximize printer availability and productivity. The platform not only allows customers to create real-time dashboards to monitor their 3D printers, but also enables 3D Systems to understand the printer's service requirements. 3D Systems can also take remote diagnostic problems and even remotely fix machines.This situation from the networking industry and 3D printing industry reflects the point of view, the transformation from heavy products to service or process industries in the field of intelligent manufacturing experience. After all, intelligent manufacturing is the reason why intelligent manufacturing, it is very important to its people-oriented connotation of the spirit. All the development of new and high technology eventually points to the service of mankind itself, not the old road of human beings. Therefore, when the material level is developed to a more complete level, then it is natural to consider how to allow the material to serve mankind better.
