The ETC will feature three “proof of concept” displays of the most exciting new additive products:
- The “additive bionic human” showing additive manufactured medical implants and body parts
- The AMIE project from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), a first of its kind, uses an integrated energy system that shares energy between a building and a vehicle, both built with additive technology
- and ORNL’s printed Shelby Cobra sports car, a classic 50-year-old icon of “cool” muscle power, as well as an Army jeep replica.
“This app goes beyond a traditional RSS feed. It’s a true aggregator of manufacturing research from multiple sources that custom-compiles research as defined by the user,” says AMT Vice President - Exhibitions & Business Development Peter Eelman. “The app
debuts as an information piece in AMT’s ETC, and visitors can test some of the beta-versions in the AMT Experience.”
