3D Printing Plastic Materials: Advanced Manufacturing Alert - Research and Markets

Saturday, Jan 07, 2017

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D Printing Plastic Materials-Advanced Manufacturing Alert" report to their offering.

This issue of the Advanced Manufacturing Alert highlights key developments and trends in plastic 3D printing materials for fused deposition modeling(FDM)/fused filament fabrication (FFF).

The Advanced Manufacturing Alert covers global innovations and developments related to manufacturing and industrial automation on a weekly basis. Innovations are focused toward improving product traceability, energy efficiency and reducing environmental footprints, integrating product design and manufacturing aspects for reducing time-to-market. Research focus areas include rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing), light-weighting (multi-material joining, plastics and metals manufacturing, carbon fiber-based composite manufacturing), smart robotics (agile robots, consumer robots, swarm robotics, cobots), monitoring and control (wireless control networks, human machine interface), and simulation and modeling (design and simulation software).

The Advanced Manufacturing and Automation (AMA) Cluster covers technologies that enable clean, lean and flexible manufacturing and industrial automation. Three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) printing, wireless sensors and networks, information and communication technology, multi-material joining, composites manufacturing, robotics, digital manufacturing, micro- and nano-manufacturing, lasers, advanced software, and printing techniques, are covered as part of this cluster. The innovations covered here impact a wide range of industries, such as the impact semiconductor, automotive and transportation, aerospace and defense, industrial, healthcare, logistics, and electronics industries.
