Engineers Print Wearable Sensors Directly on Skin

Wearable sensors are evolving from watches and electrodes to bendable devices that provide far more precise biometric measurements and comfort for users. Now, an international team of researchers has taken the evolution one step further by printing sensors directly on human skin without the use of heat.  

Cobra’s King Tour Irons get the Metal Injection Molding Treatment

Nearly two years ago at the PGA Merchandise Show, Cobra shook up the wedge manufacturing process when it pulled the curtain back on a design that was unlike anything the industry had seen. Using a mixture of 304 stainless steel metal powder, Cobra designers were able to create an entire wedge product using a metal injection molding process typically reserved for finely-shaped weights that needed to fit inside confined spaces. (Think tungsten weights crammed inside a hollow-cavity iron product.)

GE Aviation’s GE9X Engine Achieves FAA Certification

GE Aviation reports that its GE9X engine, which contains over 300 additively manufactured parts, has been certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorities.

Said to be a key milestone in the company’s journey to power the new twin-engine Boeing 777X family, the certification follows a test flight of GE Aviation’s GE9X engine on a Boeing 777X in January 2020.
