Patents Assigned to nScrypt, Inc. According to the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Brinkman Lab,” nScrypt’s direct print microextrusion process. The ceramic slurry is pneumatically extruded through a 100-micron diameter ceramic nozzle to build up a 3D printed spiral anode layer”.
According to Asst Prof Pham from NTU’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, “We envisioned a team of robots which can be transported to a work site, print large pieces of concrete structures and then move on to the next project once the parts have been printed.
This research builds on the knowledge we have acquired from developing a robot to autonomously assemble. But this latest project is more complex in terms of planning, execution, and on a much larger scale.”
According to Chris Spadaccini the director of LLNL’s Center for Engineered Materials and Manufacturing, “There are a whole lot of scientific and engineering challenges left, but it could have the significant impact, scaling up should be easier with small-scale reactors because you can parallelize. You could have an array of small 3-D reactors together instead of one large vessel enabling you to control the chemical reaction process more effectively. The Monolithic nanoporous metals, derived from dealloying, have a unique bicontinuous solid/void structure that provides both large surface area and high electrical conductivity, making them ideal candidates for various energy applications”.
According to Ben Carroll, Minister for Industry and Employment,“3D printing is a game changer for manufacturing – which is why we’re backing the technology so more local companies can reap the benefits. This new hub will help local manufacturers innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes $27.7 billion to the Victorian economy, with over 13,000 businesses employing more than 283,000 people. It also exported $18.16 billion of manufactured goods in 2016-17″.
Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll today joined Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny at Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub – supported by $2 million from the Andrews Labor Government.
