Daimler Trucks to use 3D printing to make spare part – Times of India

FRANKFURT: Daimler, the world’s biggest truck developer, can use three-dimensional printing (3D) to make spare parts made of plastics as digital making reshapes the vehicle donate chain.
Rather than shipping vehicle parts across the globe of Germany, Daimler can now send a digital blueprint of a spare part to a printing device that can convert special inks into hardened plastics without the require for stocking or shipping the part.
As of September, Mercedes-Benz Trucks can use 3D printing systemes for plastic spare parts which include spring caps, air and cable ducts, clamps, mountings and control elements, Daimler said on Wednesday.


MIT scientists devise way to 3D print hair

Need hair? Just press print, say MIT scientists who made a new way to 3D print thousands of hair-like structures inside minutes on different types of surfaces to perform useful tasks such as sensing and adhesion.

Daimler has additional than 100,000 printed prototype parts, and can be growing production via 3D printing methods, the company said.

The “printed” spare parts are made with 3D printing devices based on the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) printing system and ordered via the special spare part number, actually for parts on versions that are several decades old.

Without having to make tools for equite part, the 3D printing system can secure donate actually for version series that are no longer generated, or for parts that are generated just in quite low quantities equite year. (Reporting by Edward Taylor, editing by Louise Heavens)
