This video from the US Department of Energy explains how additive manufacturing systems can be used to advance the nuclear power industry . 3D printing techniques allow you to create complex shapes, layer by layer, that can be rapidly prototyped and tested to reduce the time and money it takes to develop a product. The US Department of Energy and its national labs are supporting early-stage research on additive manufacturing that can ultimately be adopted by industry to drastically reduce the time it takes to design, build and certify nuclear systems. Nuclear energy is a carbon-free energy source that brings resilience and reliability to the electric grid. The Office of Nuclear Energy works with US industry and other stakeholders to extend the life cycles of America’s current fleet of reactors and to develop new technologies that will help meet future environmental and energy goals.
