Wacker says it can 3-D print realistic reproductions of human organs.

The German chemical maker Wacker Chemie will open its first U.S. lab for the three-dimensional printing of silicon rubber later this year.

The firm sees applications in medical devices, transportation, aerospace, and electronics.
