Axis is attending this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas for the first time from January 7 to 10, 2020 to showcase its expertise in 3D printing.
The CES is an international trade show that was created in 1967. The 1st edition gathered about 200 exhibitors in New York while in 2019 this event welcomed more than 4400 companies specialized in electronic technologies for the general public. Every year since its creation, the exhibition allows professionals (170,000 in 2019) and individuals to discover new technologies with many themes such as health, environment, telephony etc.
As a partner to many industries in the field of rapid prototyping, we have the opportunity to help various companies validate their projects before they are fully realized.
Axis is participating this year in the automotive world on booth CP-4 (Tech East, LVCC, Central Plaza) of the Convention Center, dedicated to French business #thanks to the support of the New Aquitaine region #TeamNaqui. Indeed, Axis has been working for years with many customers related to this French or European sector. It was therefore logical for us to try to further expand our customer base across the Atlantic by showing our skills.
Stereolithography is often used to make optical parts such as car headlights. This is possible thanks to clearvue resin or prototherm resin which allow to obtain crystal clear parts thanks to a varnish or red tinted.
Powder sintering is used to make technical parts requiring more resistance such as chutes, mirrors, parts related to the dashboard, steering wheels etc.
Vacuum casting is also used to make headlights, especially lenses in small series. This process is indeed to be favored to produce parts in several copies because it is a slightly longer manufacturing process that requires a master model in stereolithography and a silicone mold in order to obtain the final parts by duplication colored in the mass.
Axis also has some of its partners present at CES such as Pollen Robotics with whom we have developed the Reachy project: an interactive robot that can perform a maximum of tasks on demand.
Axis hopes that this event will be rich in meetings and new partnerships. If you are ever present at the show, do not hesitate to come and see us, we will be happy to discuss with you!
