ABB Scientists Get a €6,5 million Grant for their Groundbreaking Project

On July 24th 2017 European Commission decided to co-finance research and development project called “NOVUM” which is implemented by a consortium appointed by ABB. Scientists will jointly develop innovative, automated technology for the manufacture of insulation elements for transformers.

The grant agreement was signed on July 12th 2017. The total budget of the project is € 8.5 million, of which 6.5 million comes from the resources allocated by the European Commission. The “NOVUM” project will last for four years and new, automated methods for the manufacture of insulation elements for cellulosic material transformers will be developed. As a result, both cost and time of production will decrease considerably and the amount of waste generated will be reduced by 60%.

Insulating elements […]

ISMO is 3D Printing Prototypes

3D Printing technology is well used in prototyping, especially when the product is only to be presented to potential investors and manufacturers of its components. The founders of ISMO start-up (Interactive System for Medicine On-Line) have successfully tried out the VSHAPER for their 3D Printing.

The ISMO idea is the accurate, secure and immediate recording of disease and its transfer to the GP’s office for medical consultation.
We value solutions based on needs more than needs created only to sell solutions. Creating ISMO we are primarily concerned with making it easier for people to consult with a physician based on photos or depiction of the disease prepared by the patient himself, without queues or leaving home – says Joanna Borowska, the […]

HZG Studies Hybrid Structures with 3D Printing Technology

While energy efficiency is becoming the overriding goal of virtually every industrial company, many research institutes are conducting studies into materials and solutions which can help conserve raw materials and energy resources. Among such institutes is the German Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht which is using VSHAPER PRO 3D Printer to analyse metal-polymer hybrid structures.

3D Printed Parts for 5-axis Milling Machine

A-T Products is a company based in Staphorst the Netherlands specializing in knife grinding, turning, milling and laser cutting. Until recently, the owner of the company perceived 3D Printing as just another technological novelty. Today he can honestly say that without additive manufacturing he would not have been able to revive his old Rexroth marking machine and create his very own 5-axis milling machine.

Albert Tmmerman has retrofitted an old machine to fit the needs of his company. Different CNC controller and servo engines are a few of the modifications which were made. However, there was still something else to be done.

When Albert Timmerman came to Vekashape looking for help, the only thing keeping the machine from operating smoothly was […]

KCCPD with an Alternative for CNC Machines

The implementation of 3D Printing technology in optimizing production process has been an inspiration for global society for quite a while now. It is right here in Holland, which is known as the European center for the development of 3D Technology, where so many companies promoting innovative approach to production process are based. One of those companies is KCCPD who has just invested in VSHAPER solutions.

KCCPD is a Dutch company specializing in 3D CAD/CAM programming of CNC mills and lathes. The company supports their customers in creating CAD/CAM programs to machine prototypes or small series. Machining these components is rather expensive and programming these parts can be very time-consuming. For these kind of applications 3D printing is a […]
