Kyocera Unveils “CAM” Customized 3D Printing for Medical Device Prototypes at MD&M West

Kyocera | August 13, 2021

Kyocera, a leader in ceramics-based medical devices, will unveil its “CAM” (ceramic additive manufacturing) customized 3D printing service for cost-effective prototypes of new medical device designs at the MD&M West Medical Expo in Anaheim, Calif., August 10-12, the world’s largest annual convention for medical product designers and manufacturers. Kyocera’s new service utilizes both zirconia and alumina materials in a wide variety of shapes, a size range of 200 x 105 x 40mm and wall thickness of 0.25-10mm. The simple 3-step process rapid-produces samples: simply send a 3D CAD file, complete a consultation the next day and then prototypes are created in 1-2 weeks*. Additionally, Kyocera will also be showcasing its wide range of ceramics-based medical technologies during the expo. Rapid Custom Samples with CAM Incorporating 60+ years of product development expertise, Kyocera’s engineers consult on each new project and devise the most cost-effective method for a 3D printed prototype of new medical device designs. With that consultation and 3D printing using zirconia and alumina, Kyocera is able to produce virtually any kind of customized prototype in 1-2 weeks. Kyocera’s ceramics offer scratch resistance, higher rigidity, temperature resistance, longer lifetime, high-voltage insulation, lighter weight, and superior thermal management, providing an overall lower cost of ownership. Additive Manufacturing According to MD&M West, the global medical device manufacturing market is expected to exceed $200 billion by 2025, largely due to an aging population, chronic disease and advancements in technology to help various conditions. Kyocera continues to use its unique ceramic “superhero” materials to help advance medical technologies. The Company’s Fine Ceramics provide a highly durable, long-lasting, non-reactive material that can be found in solutions for genetic sequencing; microfluidic tools; X-ray, PET, MRI and CT scan machines; pacemakers and cardiac monitors; neuromodulation devices; surgical tools; drug testing devices and orthopedic joint replacement systems. Information on these innovative ceramic medical solutions and more will be on display at Kyocera’s booth throughout the show. About KYOCERA Kyocera Corporation (TOKYO: 6971), the parent and global headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was founded in 1959 as a producer of fine ceramics (also known as “advanced ceramics”). By combining these engineered materials with metals and integrating them with other technologies, Kyocera has become a leading supplier of industrial and automotive components, semiconductor packages, electronic devices, smart energy systems, printers, copiers, and mobile phones. During the year ended March 31, 2021, the company’s consolidated sales revenue totaled 1.5 trillion yen (approx. US$13.8 billion). Kyocera is ranked #603 on Forbes magazine’s 2021 “Global 2000” list of the world’s largest publicly traded companies, and appears on The Wall Street Journal’s latest list of “The World’s 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies.”

Nano Dimension Acquires DeepCube to Drive Industry 4.0 Evolution

DeepCube | April 23, 2021

DeepCube, the award-winning deep learning pioneer, has agreed to be acquired by Nano Dimension Ltd. in a binding deal. DeepCube will operate as a subsidiary of Nano Dimension Ltd. after the deal is completed, developing first-of-their-kind AI-powered-Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME)/PE (3D-Printed Electronics) platforms and services. DeepCube's training platform and real-time inference engine will be built into Nano Dimension AME 3D printers, serving as smart nodes in a Smart Fabrication Network (SFN) and the AI control center for these networks. The vision of Industry 4.0 – where machines cooperate, understand, refine, and distribute printed electronics – is now a reality because of DeepCube's experience in machine learning/deep learning. DeepCube's ground-breaking algorithms significantly accelerate multi-domain neural models by orders of magnitude, making it an excellent match for complex and real-time edge problems, especially 3D manufacturing. To achieve aggressive performance goals, the novel DeepCube approach combines a cutting-edge training framework and a highly efficient inference engine. Smart 3D manufacturing nodes are equipped with a variety of real-time, cross-disciplinary sensors that generate GigaBytes of time-sensitive data. DeepCube's platform converts this huge volume of data through real-time insights and actions, resulting in self-learning and improving machine infrastructure. AI-powered distributed digital fabrication, pioneered by Nano Dimension and DeepCube, can enhance yield, throughput, quality, design options, and optimization.
