Scientists will expand the materials suitable for 3D printing
Scientists from TSU and the Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science (ISPMS) have proposed a new method of 3D-printing, which uses materials previously inaccessible for this: metals, metal ceramics, and even high-energy materials.
- Unfortunately, there are some material limitations in modern 3D printing methods. Some materials, for example, consisting of metal and ceramics, from refractory and low-melting metals, cannot be used with existing methods, - explains Marat Lerner, Doctor of Technical Sciences, the project manager and head of the laboratory at ISPMS. - My colleagues from TSU and I propose a slightly different way of additively forming parts of complex shapes, which will help us to bypass this limitation. In the method that we are developing, there are no restrictions on the phase composition of materials.
