3D printing or additive manufacturing is the process of creating solid parts from three-dimensional models, by adding layer upon layer of material. There are many 3D printing technologies that build 3D structures and objects (e.g. laser melting, fused deposition modeling, electron beam melting, material jetting). The processes are slightly different and have their own unique advantage and disadvantages. For this post, we’re going to cover SLA print technology, which is what we use for desktop 3D printing at our Centr'Alp facility.... read more.
The first Industrial Revolution was a period marked by mechanization and a shift to improved systems of transportation. The second Industrial Revolution brought rapid mass production; and the third era of industry introduced automation – the beginning of computers and robots replacing human workers.... read more.
Cleanrooms are controlled environments with very low levels of pollutants to ensure manufacturing processes aren’t adversely impacted by small particles. Radiall uses cleanrooms to develop and manufacture certain fiber optic and active products such as D-Lightsys transceivers, where small particles would adversely affect the manufacturing process.... read more.
