Mass-customization of oral tablets via the combination of 3D printing and injection molding.
The new frontier of medicine is the personalization of treatment to match a patient’s individual needs. Fused-filament fabrication (FFF) offers a platform for the personalization of drug dosage forms, but one of its chief ...
Hybrid manufacturing 3D printing and injection moulding in the pursuit of mass customization
(Athlone Institute of Technology, 2020-06)
Project Overview: Mass customization is a marketing and manufacturing technique which combines the flexibility and personalization of custom-made products with the low unit costs associated with mass production. The ...
On the possibility of replacement of calcium carbonate by a high-performance, economically viable filler in polyethylene composites
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is frequently added to polyethylene (PE) as a filler to reduce costs. An alternative to CaCO3, calcium fluoride (CaF2) was proposed in this research. PE/CaCO3 and PE/CaF2 composites in a wide ...
Comparison of fused-filament fabrication to direct compression and injection molding in the manufacture of oral tablets.
Oral tablets are a convenient form to deliver active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and have a high level of acceptance from clinicians and patients. There is a wide range of excipients available for the fabrication of ...
Mass customization of polylactic acid (PLA) parts via a hybrid manufacturing process
Mass customization is the development of items tailored to specific customers, but produced at low unit cost in high-volume. In this context, hybrid manufacturing (HM) combines fused deposition modeling (FDM) and injection ...
