Overview Of: Manufacture
The Time Compression Manufacture Zone includes information on the major manufacturing processes employed in rapid product development. That obviously includes classical rapid prototyping and manufacturing processes such as 3-D printing, fused deposition modeling, selective laser sintering and stereo lithography to make parts and tooling. But it also includes the use of more traditional processes deployed in a rapid product development mode such as machining, casting, injection molding and others. The Manufacture Zone also includes much on reverse engineering processes, practices, software and equipment.

A new process that uses centrifugal force to push materials through tiny openings to create nanofibers has been introduced by FibeRio Technology Corp. (www.riosouthtexas.com). Called “ForceSpinning,” the technology is said to make nanofiber creation more versatile and cost-effective than the traditional nanofiber creation methods of electrospinning.
