Union Pacific 3D printing for railroad machine vision technology

U.S. railroad company Union Pacific (UP) has revealed an innovative use of 3D printing to improve locomotive operations. The company’s headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska currently houses a Stratasys Connex 350. The 3D printer allows the railroad operators to rapidly iterate designs and these have advanced the way Union Pacific operates. According to UP, the 3D printer supports the railroad company’s use of machine vision technology as well as creating prototype equipment tracking devices.
