Additive manufacturing, better known as 3-D printing, has long been hailed as the key to the next industrial revolution.
To date, the burgeoning technology’s biggest successes have been in the creation of prototypes, parts, and the occasional marketing gimmick rather than mass production.
But the tide is turning and a Newark startup called DeLUX Engineering is working to push the boundaries of what 3-D printing can do in the fields of telecommunications, defense contracting and pharmaceuticals.
Formed in 2015 by a pair of ph.D. candidates at the University of Delaware and their advisor, the entrepreneurs already have landed more than $1.3 million in federal funding to turn their ideas into reality.
