ETH Zurich researchers develop bioinspired approach to 3D print recyclable materials (video)

recyclable materials

Fused deposition modeling (FDM), often simply referred to as 3D Printing, has been hailed as the future of manufacturing. Researchers at ETH Zürich have developed a bioinspired approach to 3D print recyclable materials using cheap desktop printers that outperform state-of-the-art printed polymers and rival the highest performance lightweight materials. This will finally enable the manufacturing of complex parts that mimic natural structural designs on the mass market.

Additive manufacturing can also be used to repair components of aircraft engine

The exciting news for air transport, and aviation in general, is that the brand new additive technology, which already allows engine parts to be produced by 3D printing, can also be used to repair the components of an aircraft engine. In fact, among the additive technologies recently developed, Cold Spray is finally to be applied in Avio Aero, and for the first time in GE, on the accessory drive train of the GE90. In addition, the  Avio Aero repair teams at Brindisi and the Additive Repair Development Centre at the Polytechnic of Bari are proceeding with the development and study of this technology (as well as Laser Deposition) for several other applications. These include portions of components or engine parts for other aircraft, such as the GEnx, CFM56, and some others which power the largest aircraft daily flying between countries and continents.
