This issue of Advanced Manufacturing TOE covers recent developments in 3D printing, collaborative robots, and structural electronics. Innovations profiled include advanced processing of metals and non-ferrous alloys using plasma cutting by Hypertherm Inc.; an innovative 3D printer to print lightweight, complex ceramic parts by Xjet Ltd.; improved security through indoor user-friendly collaborative robots by Cobalt Robotics Inc.; a mobile screen used for 3D printing of photoinitiators along with a monomer or oligomer by the National Taiwan University of Science; and technology and manufacturing techniques for producing structural electronic components by TactoTek Oy.

The Advanced Manufacturing TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) covers global innovations and developments related to manufacturing and industrial automation on a weekly basis. Innovations are focused toward improving product traceability, energy efficiency and reducing environmental footprints, integrating product design and manufacturing aspects for reducing time-to-market. Research focus areas include rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing), lightweighting (multimaterial joining, plastics and metals manufacturing, carbon fiber-based composite manufacturing), smart robotics (agile robots, consumer robots, swarm robotics, cobots), monitoring and control (wireless control networks, human machine interface), and simulation and modeling (design and simulation software).

The Advanced Manufacturing and Automation (AMA) Cluster covers technologies that enable clean, lean and flexible manufacturing and industrial automation. Technologies such as three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) printing, wireless sensors and networks, information and communication technology, multimaterial joining, composites manufacturing, digital manufacturing, micro- and nano-manufacturing, lasers, advanced software, and printing techniques, are covered as part of this cluster. The technologies covered here impact a wide range of industries, such as the impact semiconductor, automotive and transportation, aerospace and defense, industrial, healthcare, logistics, and electronics industries.
