New 3D printing technology

Written by David

What do airplanes, bridges, and wind turbines have in common? They can all be made from lightweight, strong, composite materials made of polymers reinforced with strong carbon fibers.


Fiber-reinforced polymer composites have many useful properties, but their big drawback is they are typically complex and expensive to manufacture. In recent years, three-dimensional (3D) printing of composites has been successfully demonstrated using thermoplastic polymers and discontinuous fillers, but the resulting 3D-printed composites often have poor mechanical properties and low service temperature due to the limitations of the constituent properties. Consequently, 3D printing […]
