Building the future: How 3D printing is becoming mainstream

In the latest episode of the Arabian Business Enterprise Innovators Series, in association with UPS, we look at how 3D printing has grown from being a niche technological innovation to become a $120bn global industry, with Dubai aiming to be at the centre of it. Dubai loves its Guinness World Records and in October the unveiling of a 9.5 metre tall, 640 square metre building made entirely using 3D printing technology meant the emirate was able to add ‘the largest 3D printed two-storey structure in the world’ to its ever growing haul of accolades. The headline-grabbing event is all part of the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, which aims to establish the emirate as the world’s 3D printing hub by 2030. Dubai officials claim the technology will restructure economies and labour markets, while redefining productivity. The emirate has set some very ambitious goals: to use 3D printing to reduce labour costs by 70 percent and reduce material costs by 90 percent. The global market for 3D printing is expected to reach $120bn by the end of 2020 and about $300bn by 2025 and, according to the Dubai Municipality, by 2025 every new building in the emirate will be 25 percent 3D printed. But we...

Agrobot is an autonomous robotic harvester that’s poised to revolutionize the agriculture industry. It works with

Agrobot is an autonomous robotic harvester that’s poised to revolutionize the agriculture industry. It works with the world’s leading farmers to automate berry harvesting through the power of artificial intelligence. Agrobot uses deep learning to determine when to pick fruit at its ripest. Up to 24 robotic arms grip and cut the fruit from its stem to meet the farmer’s quality standards. Agrobot uses a 3D sensing scanner with short-range integrated color and infrared depth sensors to capture the details and identify when fruit is ready for the picking. Agrobot, powered by NVIDIA Jetson, currently assesses individual strawberries for harvesting using semantic segmentation. This method relies on a convolutional neural network to classify each pixel of the incoming image as belonging to the ‘strawberry’ class or not. However, if strawberries overlap in the image, then semantic segmentation isn’t enough. Agrobot is looking at extending their system to perform instance segmentation where each strawberry is unique. According to forbes.com, agriculture will continue to evolve through the help of AI and automating processes will have interesting and useful benefits  to society, lowering...

First Bikes, Then Cars, Now Diggers as Batteries’ Reach Spreads

Komatsu Ltd. has developed its first battery-powered digger as it follows the auto industry in transitioning away from combustion engines. Asia’s top construction equipment maker designed a 4.7-ton mini excavator that uses the same battery as its electric forklifts, Komatsu said in a statement on Monday. A fully charged battery allows two-to-six hours of operation, it said. Komatsu’s “zero-emission” electric digger mirrors a push by global automakers to produce vehicles that meet stricter emissions standards. Miners are also seeking to transform their operations, replacing diesel-fueled equipment from drills to 40-ton haul trucks with quieter, more efficient and less-polluting electric-powered alternatives. Members of the International Council on Mining and Metals have previously agreed to make vehicles used at above-ground operations greenhouse gas emission-free by 2040. Komatsu is testing the model at customers’ construction sites and preparing to start commercial sales at an “early” stage, the statement said. The company will unveil the model at the Bauma 2019 exhibition in Munich. 110cc Atv Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. also said Monday it will unveil two models of bat...

Semi Automated Parallel Lapping of Electronics for Microscopic Examination by Buehler

Failure analysis and production control are key steps in any successful product development. However, revealing the area of interest for microscopic investigation in a multilayer integrated circuit, stacked package or interconnections between solder balls (BGA) in packaged components requires a great deal more precision than typical metallographic preparations. The material removal has to be controlled. It is necessary to gently remove each layer of material and to be able to stop the process precisely at the failure or feature of interest. If a defect is removed from the sample due to excessive grinding, it may persist in production and lead to large losses of money. Parallel material removal or parallel lapping is usually done manually, enabling the operator to continuously examine the surface. Each time the operator must confirm the layer of interest is not yet exposed and that the surface is still parallel.This takes time and an operator with great skill. Automating parallel material removal provides the operator with control. The risk of passing the area of interest is reduced and time saved. This Sum-Note will focus on automated parallel material removal with Buehler’s MP...
