Carpenter Technology and BMT Aerospace Combine Expertise in Redesign and Production of Additively Manufactured Aerospace Component

LE BOURGET, France, June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE:CRS) and Belgium-based BMT Aerospace today announced their cooperation in the development of an additively manufactured (AM) aerospace pinion, using Carpenter Technology’s Custom 465® Stainless.AM image

BMT Aerospace and its subsidiary BMT Additive initiated the project by partnering with Carpenter Technology to produce a redesigned pinion. The redesign project was initiated to enable the benefits of additive manufacturing using high quality, printable material that would attain the high-performance expectations for the application. “BMT Aerospace strongly believes in the disruptive potential of additive manufacturing and its possibilities in aerospace,” explained Ewald Goossens, Business Unit Manager of BMT Additive. “As a small player in the market, we strongly believe in cooperation opportunities like these, where each partner can rely and build on a project, starting from its own expertise. Our specific knowledge in design and manufacturing in aerospace, and our abilities in custom design for metal additive manufacturing, are a perfect match with Carpenter Technology’s knowledge of high quality and innovative products.”

The cooperation between the two companies resulted in an optimized and simplified manufacturing process for the aerospace part via AM and introduces the opportunity to expand AM part production further across multiple applications. Parts were printed by Carpenter Technology’s business unit Carpenter Additive, using their high-strength, Custom 465® Stainless. Design, validation and post-processing for the redesigned pinion was done by BMT Aerospace. Both companies present the redesigned and printed pinion at their respective booths in Le Bourget, France.

“Collaborations like the one with BMT Aerospace demonstrate how partnerships across raw material, production, validation and design can rapidly bring to commercial reality new parts with next step performance potential,” said Marshall Akins, Carpenter’s Vice President, Aerospace Markets. “Carpenter Additive’s suite of capabilities presents powerful tools to accelerate our customer’s additive aspirations.”

Philips Research wins Dutch Hendrik Lorentz Award for its pioneering use of data science and artificial intelligence in healthcare

June 14, 2019

Philips’ AI-powered adaptive intelligence solutions help people to live healthy lifestyles, improve patient outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and enhance the patient and staff experience

Amsterdam, the Netherlands Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced that its global research organization was awarded the Hendrik Lorentz Award for its pioneering role in the digital transformation of healthcare by applying data science and artificial intelligence (AI). The award, which is part of the Dutch Data Science Awards, was presented to Philips’ Chief Technology Officer and head of Research, Henk van Houten, at a ceremony in Den Bosch, the Netherlands.

From building intelligent and personalized consumer solutions that are tailored and adaptive to people’s unique needs to creating  an ecosystem of AI assets aimed at augmenting clinicians in their daily work, Philips is applying AI to help consumers adopt healthy lifestyles and support health systems improve outcomes, reduce costs, and enhance patient care and staff experience.

“We believe that AI is offering unprecedented opportunities to transform healthcare delivery around the world and we are highly motivated to deliver the needed change through innovation, co-created with our clinical and academic partners,” said Henk van Houten. “The biggest challenge is combining AI and other technologies with a deep understanding of the context in which they are used, which is why Philips puts people – patients, clinicians and individual citizens – at the center of healthcare transformation and innovation.”

Philips ranks among the top three companies in the world in terms of AI-related patent applications in healthcare. Practical examples of AI-driven innovations developed by Philips that the jury took into account when deciding on the winner include a machine learning based system called OncoSignal that measures signaling pathway activity in individual tumor samples to diagnose different cancer types and predict targeted therapy response; the company’s SmartSleep DeepSleep Headband, which applies deep learning to classifying sleep staging based on EEG data and providing auditory stimulation to the wearer to prolong deep sleep so that they get more rest. Philips’ Intellivue Guardian patient monitoring/early-warning scoring system, its CareSage predictive analytics for elderly care, and its IntelliSpace Precision Medicine Oncology clinical decision support (CDS) software were also cited in the award nomination.

“Today’s award is not just an acknowledgement of the innovation power of Philips, it’s a recognition of all the hard work and effort that has been put in over the years by the hospitals, doctors, clinicians, patient advocates, universities, and consumer groups that collaborate with us to improve people’s lives,” Henk van Houten added. “Without them, it would simply not have been possible.”

Founded in 1914, Philips Research is one of the largest private research organizations in the world, employing approximately 1,200 professionals and 50 nationalities. It has a global presence with sites in Europe, North America, China and India.

The Hendrik Lorentz award
The Hendrik Lorentz award is the ‘best industry application’ award in the Dutch Data Science Awards. The awards are a joint initiative between the Royal Dutch Association for Science (KHMW – Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen) and the Big Data Alliance (BDA), aimed at putting exceptional innovative entrepreneurship and scientific research in the field of data science in the spotlight. They are supported by the University of Amsterdam, AIMMS, Lubbers De Jong, Oracle, Elsevier and ORTEC.

A challenging career at Philips
Philips is looking for the most dedicated, passionate and skilled data scientists and software developers eager to touch the lives of billions of people around the world by addressing challenging, unmet needs in healthcare by means of innovative methods in data analytics.

Masami Kurumada collaborates on mobile masterpiece

Leading game developer and publisher YOOZOO Games worked on Saint Seiya: Awakening alongside developer Tencent and renowned Japanese manga artist and writer Masami Kurumada. Mostly known for his work on fighting manga; featuring Bishonen and magical boy, Masami Kurumada is the founder of the manga studio Kurumada Productions.

Check out the Saint Seya: Awakening trailer here. Find the game on the official website, on Google Play or iOS. Get the latest news and updates on the Facebook page.

Saint Seiya: Awakening looks to recreate the classic Japanese comic featuring mystical warriors known as ‘Saints’ � empowered by a curious energy force called ‘Cosmo’. Combining beautiful high definition 3D graphics with some very cool combat effects and boasting a fantastic line-up of top Japanese character voice-artists from Jun Fukuyama (voice of Lelouch in Code Geass) to Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager in Attack on Titan), Saint Seiya: Awakening is set to offer mobile gamers a unique audio-visual experience.

The game design and art style remains incredibly faithful to Kurumada’s original work; with characters and their respective skills all based on the original animation. The authenticity doesn’t end there as players can actually play through the original story of Saint Seiya, reliving their favorite moments. While elsewhere there are both PvP and PvE modes to keep even the most demanding fans happy. With a roster of hundreds of fighters to choose from, players will have the freedom to create a unique team with a tailored strategy.

Within the carefully-scripted RPG structure there is also a diverse and well-balanced card game, offering a compelling mechanic for strategic decisions and the different skill combinations used during combat.
