3D Scanning and Metrology

When one shops for a new sweater, one expects that the sweater should fit. If the sweater is too big, it’ll sag, and if it’s too small, it’ll feel tight. Producing high-quality surgical tools and medical devices requires precision akin to that of making products for aerospace components and semiconductors. Small irregularities invisible to the naked …

The Strength of Titanium

The Strength of Titanium

Printing with metal is a complex procedure, requiring specialized machinery and source materials. Setting up an operation to be able to print titanium, however, requires an order of magnitude more expertise. Titanium is strong. Its strength to weight ratio is the highest of all metals and has properties that make it suitable for a wide …
