Triptech Plastics Announces Unmatched Resin for 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

Amphora offers 3D printers the strength and durability they need.

YOUNGSTOWN, OH, July 01, 2015


Triptech Plastics is set to launch with Eastman Amphora 3D polymer later this month, with the option of filament or resin. Filament made with Amphora offers 3D printers higher tensile strength, truer ovality and dimensional integrity. Triptech Plastics has special capabilities to support Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) fabricators and brings to Eastman's new line of products the manufacturing skills to blend Amphora to meet your unique needs. Triptech Plastics is already well known for their PLA and ABS and with the addition of Amphora now has the market covered.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
