The thermodynamics of the extruder head, or “ThermoTag puts, a stamp undetectable to the naked eye on the physical properties of 3D printed parts. If proven and accepted through additional research, the phenomenon has implications for thwarting counterfeiting of parts and products, protecting intellectual property (IP) and tracing illegal manufacturing of weapons.
With the ongoing shortage of skilled workers and the pickup in the economy, suppliers of welding equipment are finding ways to making welding easier for those working in manufacturing. Automation is the leading technique among many.
