3D Print Metallic Glass

Posted on Updated on

 

Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his graduate students have developed some unique uses for metallic glasses, a particularly tough metallic alloy that can be molded into useful products (like cell phone cases) at relatively lower temperatures and pressures. According to Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his research team,” they used a new approach to 3D print objects from the metallic glass a relatively new material stronger than even the best metals, but with the pliability of plastic”.

3D-printed concrete structure

Posted on Updated on

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.”

Lockheed Martin’s largest 3D-printed spacecraft

Posted on Updated on

According to Lockheed Martin Space executive vice president Rick Ambrose,” Lockheed Martin’s titanium domes are the largest 3D-printed spacecraft parts.
Lockheed Martin has created its largest piece. This titanium domes to cover the fuel tanks of the satellites. The use of additive manufacturing can help satellites assemble faster and with less wasted materials.
Our largest 3D printed parts to date show we’re committed to a future where we produce satellites twice as fast and at half the cost”.
