    Hello, I know lots of you are interested in the automotive industry so I wanted to share this fantastic example of pushing 3D printing to its limits by Bugatti, who has printed the industry’s first fully-functioning brake caliper. You can watch the caliper being printed below. The caliper is also the world’s largest 3D-printed functional titanium component, as well as the automotive industry’s largest caliper. Bugatti said the eight-piston monobloc brake caliper is stronger and about 40% lighter than the aluminium brake calipers used on its newest car, the 1,500-horsepower Chiron. ...

    Hi, Garry Clawson thanks for posting about this. It's such a topical issue! I'm sure other network members have some great examples of how they may have reduced packaing within their on comapny. On a related note, I thought it was fantastic to see that MPs, from seven political parties, have written to Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose, Aldi, Lidl, Budgens and Marks & Spencer urging them to scrap plastic packaging. More info here. As a consumer I sometimes feel powerless with reducing my own waste, I recycle as much as I can and try and avoid products with excess pacakaing...

    Amy Brunsdon replied to a post CES 2018 in News & Views
    Hi Garry Clawson, I love following the CES announcements! I've always wanted to go to the show and have previously worked on lots of clients who have been at the show such as Sonos. Most of the coverage around the show seems to focus on the robots that were unveiled. There's a great peiece on the BBC about this see here. My favourite robot on show was the Aflac duck (not strictly manuafcturing related) Aflac is a smart toy to help comfort kids facing cancer. The toy has sensors that react to touch, and RFID tags that help children express their emotions, feel calm during chemotherapy...
