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 Eastmans 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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
