A Mission to Multi-Material 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing

Posted by Kim Carbon on Jul 3, 2017 2:04:38 PM

The adoption of 3D printing by different industries is increasing and so does the number of developments in the industry itself. From industrial-grade 3D printers like the Series 1 Pro to multi-filament printing, players in the 3D printing industry continue to find better solutions to enable customers towards the 3D manufacturing era.  

One company in this list is Mosaic Manufacturing, a Canada-based 3D printing technology company and a partner of Type A Machines. With their recent release of Palette+, Mosaic is bringing multi-material 3D printing to the market, opening new opportunities for mass customization and a wider range of applications for the technology. We recently had the chance to interview Mosaic Co-founder and COO Chris Labelle, where he shared with us their company’s journey to advancing multi-material printing, and their vision for the future.

The first batch of Palettes from Mosaic Manufacturing has arrived to Type A Machines!

Before you whip out your credit card, a word of caution - While the Palette produces unbelievable multi-color prints, due to the very nature of multi-filament printing, throughput can be low. Therefore, we offer these first units to those interested in participating in our “Palette Beta Program”, where we experiment and share best practices with the community.

A 3D Printing Filament To Reduce Landfills

Posted by Kim Carbon on Dec 8, 2016 10:32:42 AM

In the past couple months, we have seen a number of companies and research teams develop methods to create 3D printing filaments by utilizing waste. This initiative supports the search for better solutions for waste management in manufacturing industries. At Type A Machines, we believe in the capability of 3D printing to transform the way we create things, affecting all the processes involved with making. Just recently, 3D printer filament company 3DomFuel, LLC has launched an effort transforming waste material into a plastic filament.
