The technology was just finished this past summer, so it's still very young. That doesn't mean, however, that Wacker hasn't thought about where it can be used.
The company believes it could be a big help in the automotive and medical fields. Silicone car parts could be printed on an as-needed basis. Custom implants for patients could be generated from MRI data quick enough to be implanted during an operation. Wacker also noted that hearing aids and respiratory masks could be printed. Oh, and running shoes.
Through this stunning new development in 3D printing technology, Wacker has proved that there are no boundaries of 3D printing.
