    3D Printing

    Will APNT ever be revealed as holding a piece of this pie??

    "3D Printing: Modeling Profits"

    "...For example, 3D printing has the potential to be an $8.4 billion-in-revenues market in 2025, up from $777 million in 2012, according to Lux Research, with the majority of the applications in the automotive, medical and aerospace industries. Long term, it may reshape the manufacturing ecosystem. In the near term, it will have the most impact for manufacturing products that are made in small volumes, require high customization and are more cost-tolerant, Lux reported.

    3D printers utilize liquid or powder materials and other chemical agents to print products by repeatedly depositing thin layers of materials that are bonded together, layer by layer. It is used in aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer product fields, among many other industries. The technology first emerged in 1988 but only entered the mainstream in the past year or so as 3D Systems (DDD) and Stratasys (SSYS) began to sell their products to consumers, and as both stocks generated quite a bit of attention from the media and investors...."

      go to the company website of Optomec
      click the 'partners' heading. Left column of page that opens, below 'Our Partners', click 'Material Suppliers', you will find Applied Nanotech listed supplying Ag, Cu, and Ni 'Conductor' 'product types'.

      A private company, they have some pretty amazing capability 3D printing on the nano-scale using their proprietary aerosol-jet whose 'print head' dont need cleaning because the printable inks are surrounded within a 'oh so tiny' stream of gas as they are being applied to whatever surface.

      click the 'downloads' heading. On the left column of the page that opens, under the 'Application-Specific' heading you can find videos in the 'Alternative Energy' and in the '3D Printed Electronics' sections showing their technology performing work which APNT printable inks are probably suited for.

      Sorry so long to get this reply to ya. Stumbled on Optomec trying to scratch up past business associations of 3D print related stock 'Sigma Labs'. Quite a company that Optomec.

      • If you really want to know email Baker and ask him......the relationship with Optomec is described as "referral" and there are no sales attributed to them (as of about 8 months ago). There was a guy on the RB msg board that was obsessed with some "phantom Optomec" relationship and literally wrote reams of wasted words that currently occupy some void in cyberspace. LOL

    • Might be able to supply some of the raw materials for printing.

      • I was working in Russia, SPb, between 1995 and 2005. That was the time when all "Secrets" of the Russian (military) industry were for sale. From a researcher at the "Institute of Fine Mechanics and Optics" I was offered the technology to 3D-modeling in liquid platics. They used 3 controlled lasers, in the focus of them the liquid plastics hardened. So the 3D-object was growing in the liquid. Control was done using a 3D-drawing of the object to be created. Wondering, that nobody bought it ....
