3D printed PEEK for high temperature applications

3D printed PEEK for high temperature applications
  Polyetheretherketon (PEEK) is considered one of the most powerful high-performance polymers, due to its mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance. Therefore, it is used as a replacement for materials such as steel, aluminium and other polymers.

3D printing colloidal crystals

3D printing colloidal crystals
MIT engineers have united the principles of self-assembly and 3D printing using a new technique, which they highlight today in the journal Advanced Materials. By their direct-write colloidal assembly process, the researchers can build centimeter-high crystals, each made from billions of individual colloids, defined as particles that are between 1nm and 1μm cross.

Using digital technologies to create spare parts

Using digital technologies to create spare parts
Digitalisation, realised by a specialist parts manufacturer such as Sulzer, is the key to rapid and precise repairs. Repairing critical equipment can be a time-consuming task, especially if it has been in service for a long time and original parts are difficult to source. In West Virginia, USA, Sulzer re-engineers and produces new casting parts for a wide range of rotating equipment using additive manufacturing technologies.

The next step: The 3D model goes into 3D printing

The next step: The 3D model goes into 3D printing
Double gears are an essential part of the everyday life of designers. When force, torque or speed in gears need to be changed, this task can only be performed if the geometry of the teeth is optimised. To enable manufacture of high performance geometrically complex gears such as these, time and money has to be invested.

3D printing one of the strongest materials on Earth

3D printing one of the strongest materials on Earth
Researchers from Virginia Tech and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a novel way to 3D print complex objects of one of the highest-performing materials used in the battery and aerospace industries. Previously, researchers could only print this material, known as graphene, in 2D sheets or basic structures.

World's first 4D printing for ceramics

World's first 4D printing for ceramics
A research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has achieved a ground-breaking advancement in materials research by successfully developing the world's first-ever 4D printing for ceramics, which are mechanically robust and can have complex shapes. This could turn a new page in the structural application of ceramics. Ceramic has a high melting point, so it is difficult to use conventional laser printing to make ceramics.

How 3D printers could improve access to technology

How 3D printers could improve access to technology
3D printers can make just about anything these days, from a pair of running shoes to chocolate, wood, and aircraft parts. And it turns out — even complex scientific gadgets used in cancer research. Cost-efficient tools are essential in life sciences research to understand how cancer cells migrate from one place to another during metastasis, to probe how neurons connect in networks during human development, and to watch how white blood cells respond to infections.
