Brightlands Materials of the Future Series announces new conferences focused on circularity of fashion design and the future of mobility – Materials 4 Sustainable Mobility Conference on March 23 and Materials 4 Sustainable Fashion on April 20.Continue reading “Brightlands Materials of the Future Series announces new conferences focused on circularity of fashion design and the future of mobility”
The Sustainable Materials Series is meant to become a series of conferences / events / workshops / hackathons on plastics.
Plastics play an important role in our economy and daily lives but the way it is currently produced, used and discarded harms the environment. This fast growing volume of plastics has a strong impact on ecosystems, biodiversity and even human health if not handled responsibly.
More and more we realise that the valuable material produced could be brought back into the economy. The need to tackle the potential economic and environmental benefits of a more resource-efficient and circular approach is adamant.
The Sustainable Materials Series, being organised by Jakajima in close collaboration with strategic partner Brightlands Chemelot Campus, will cover specific themes concerning the circular approach.
The series will start with the following promising and ambitious topics:
- From plastic waste 2 plastic, focused on thermo-chemical recycling, www.plasticwaste2plasticconference.com
- Design 4 Sustainability, on design for reuse and recycling, focused on automotive and packaging applications, www.design4sustainabilityconference.com
Jakajima, Matchmaker for Innovators in the high tech industry, organises many events, ranging from 3D Printing to Internet of Things, from Unmanned Cargo Aircraft to Health Tech, from 4D Printing to Photonics and from Vertical Farming to 3D Food Printing. As technology develops itself from atoms to bits and from bits to atoms, traditional boundaries between value chains disappear which lead to new business opportunities. The combination of business, technology, creativity, enthusiasm and humour is our leitmotif.

3D printing is affecting the way engineers design in the automotive industry. The technology is already used in the industry, currently mostly for plastic and metal spare parts. Additive manufacturing has opened the door for newer designs, safer products, shorter lead times and lower costs. Moreover, it will be an enabler for the automotive industry to adapt towards the new smart mobility requirements.
With 3D printed electronics, even more applications are in sight. Engineers can now design the electronics to fit a certain part, rather than designing parts around electronics as before. The design is no longer limited to flat printed circuit boards, things get three-dimensional. Furthermore, electronics can be printed using a variety of techniques- inkjet, analog, so there is a lot of room for innovation.Continue reading “3D Printed Electronics Hit the Road – An Overview of Automotive Industry Applications”
