3D Printing with plants

Posted on Updated on

3D Printing with plants. According to Oak Ridge National Laboratory Scientists team and ORNL’s Amit Naskar,” They created a new material with excellent printability and performance by tapping into lignin—a key component of plant cell walls that provides sturdiness. Lignin is a current byproduct of the biofuels process that could become a valuable coproduct with this new use. The method combines lignin, rubber, carbon fibre and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, or ABS—commonly used in plastic toys—to 3D print structures with 100 per cent improved weld strength between the layers over ABS alone. To achieve this, we are building on our experience with lignin during the last five years. We will continue fine-tuning the material’s composition to make it even stronger.”

3D Printing with a Unique New Layer-Based System

Posted on Updated on

I’ve never seen before printer like this that builds parts 3D Printing with a Unique New Layer-Based System. But my brother in law has the 3D printer. He used it to make parts for special appliances.

According to Hackaday, “this 3D printer builds up a part in layers but not as we’ve ever seen before. Impossible Objects has built a machine that prints each layer onto a substrate, stacks them up, then compresses and bakes the parts. The result is reinforced composite parts. They use carbon fiber reinforced polyether ether ketone (PEEK)”.

Industrial 3D Printing Uses Layers Like We’ve Never Seen Before

Additive Industries partnership with Sauber F1 Team

Posted on Updated on

According to CEO of Additive Industries, “For Additive Industries Daan Kersten,” this partnership extension with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team co
confirms the
acceleration in industrial additive manufacturing that we are aiming for. Repeat sales in such a short time is the best compliment for our team, both for the system design and 3D metal printing process but also for our customer support team which
ch works closely with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team to reach the highest productivity in the market today. We are both proud and grateful for such a
partnership”.

3D printed watch straps

Posted on Updated on

Betatype and Uniform Wares creation watch straps.

According to Michael Carr, creative director at Uniform Wares,
“We used a huge, cumbersome machine to weave steel cable into the mesh pattern, which we then had to cut to size and weld working parts onto it. The idea that Betatype was using a new technology that would mean less waste and new materials was hugely appealing”.

A 3D printed li-ion battery

Posted on Updated on

I am concerned about writing anything related to Lithium. So I did research about it. I found out some favorable research about Lithium.
Please do the judgment for our reader’s.
According to Battery University, “Because of the inherent instability of lithium metal, research shifted to a non-metallic lithium battery using lithium ions. Although slightly lower in energy density, the lithium-ion system is safe, providing certain precautions are met when charging and discharging. Today, lithium-ion is one of the most successful and safe battery chemistries available. Two billion cells are produced every year”.

At the same time, according to Physics researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University,” they also found that the electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries (also known as Li-ion batteries) could be replaced with halogen-free electrolytes that are both nontoxic and environmentally friendly”.

According to Engadget,” A 3D printed li-ion battery is one of the challenges in creating smaller and smaller devices these days, such as wearables and phones, is that the batteries can take up a lot of room. Cases are often designed around standard battery sizes, and it often creates wasted space. Now, new research published in ACS Applied Energy Materials shows that it’s possible to 3D-print lithium-ion batteries into whatever shape you need”.

Boeing and Thermwood join new 3D printing technology

Posted on Updated on

Boeing and Thermwood Partner to Demonstrate New 3D Printing Technology. Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners, defense, space and security systems, and service provider of aftermarket support.
Thermwood manufactures both 3 and 5 Axis Machining Centers as well as Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) systems for a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, marine, woodworking, plastics and military/defense.

According to Boeing Research & Technology engineer Michael Matlack,” the use of Thermwood’s additive manufacturing technology in this application provided a significant advantage, saving weeks of time and enabling delivery of the tool before traditional tooling could be fabricated”.
