SKOP Device

Connected SKOP Stethoscope

The Challenge During the COVID-19 crisis, French start-up WeMed knew there was an opportunity to quickly respond to the accelerating demand for diagnostic medical devices that supported teleconsulting and remote monitoring. WeMed designed a connected SKOP stethoscope that used a biomimetic design based on the human ear to maximize performance. However, the specific geometry of the SKOP design could only be achieved with additive manufacturing. The Solution WeMED teamed up with manufacturing experts, Third, to find the right printing technology for their...

Fully Functional Airplane Joystick Grip

The Challenge ScaleBirds needed to source an authentic reproduction of an iconic 1940's joystick grip for their replica P-36 LiteFighter aircraft. It needed to be accurate as possible to the original piece, while still being durable enough to meet handling requirements. Traditional tooling would have been extremely costly due to the fine surface detail and would have had lead times of over two weeks. The Solution Using a combination of LOCTITE 3D IND406 and LOCTITE 3D 3843 White, our service bureau partners...

Driving Clear Innovation in the world of Traffic and Mobility

The Challenge QDP has been working together with their client, Hoeflake Infratechniek, to find innovative solutions to challenges that arise in the world of traffic and mobility. They set out to create a lens to cover the wait sign for a bicycle crossing module on traffic lights. The challenge was making these lenses transparent so that the text "wait" was easy to read, but also give a good diffusion so that the light from the LEDs was spread evenly and pleasant...

Motor Connector Adapter for Bioreactor

The Challenge The Distek BIONE Bioprocess Control Station is a state-of-the-art benchtop scale bioreactor with high standards of both functionality and surface quality. The customer needed to produce connectors for a low volume customized product that needed to fit various controller models. Injection molding with ABS was not feasible and other 3D printing materials did not meet functionality or surface quality  specifications. The Solution Using LOCTITE 3D 3843 High Toughness, the customer was able to create a connector adapter that meet both functionality...

Snowboard Bindings

Fully Functional Snowboard Bindings

The Challenge Technology is a key factor in developing cutting-edge sports equipment. Currently, commercial snowboard bindings are created using injection molding. This type of traditional manufacturing limits users to off-the-shelf products that don't account for different fits, riding requirements, and comfort levels. The Solution Using the Origin One printer,  slicelab and f=f were able to 3D print custom high back snowboard bindings. By utilizing an additive workflow and LOCTITE 3D 3172 HDT50 High Impact, these bindings featured components that would be impossible...

Packaging Prototypes

Driving Clear Innovation in Packaging

The Challenge Traditionally, the packaging industry has use time-tested technologies like injection-molding and thermo-forming. The high costs associated with these processes means companies need to order at a higher production scales to minimize cost per piece. This methodology limits innovation and design freedom within the field, and does not fill the need for small batch production. The Solution Using a Carbon M2 3D printer and LOCTITE IND405 Clear, our service bureau partner ProtoCAM can create packaging prototypes faster than possible with other...

Baseball Bat Mold

Customized Molds for Baseball Bats

The Challenge Every year, DeMarini Sports launches at least 40 new aluminum baseball bats that meet safety regulations and quality standards expected by their customers. To deliver these new design, they use injection molding. However, creating detailed molds that meet DeMarini needs using tradition tooling is a barrier to innovation, with incredibly long design cycles, high costs, and low potential for iterations. The Solution Utilizing Fortify's unique Continuous Kinetic Mixing printing process on the FLUX ONE 3D printer using a customized variant...

industrial drone

Industrial Drone Housing

The Challenge Digital Aerolus has been working together with Fast Radius to find innovative solutions for the different parts of the Aertos 130IR, an industrial drone that operates in confined spaces. During the manufacturing process, Fast Radius had to face some challenges regarding the housing of the device, which needed to have certain specifications regarding the transparency of the piece. The Solution Using the Carbon L1, a new large-format 3D printer, and Henkel´s LOCTITE 3D IND405 Certified for Carbon Printers, Fast Radius...
