3D Printed Batteries Handle the Squeeze

3D Printed Batteries Handle the Squeeze

While flexible and stretchable electronics technologies have progressed in leaps and bounds over the past 10 years, batteries to power them have some catching up to do. Researchers have now demonstrated a "quasi-solid-state" battery—made from materials somewhere between a liquid and a solid—that can be compressed by as much as 60% while maintaining high energy density and good stability over 10,000 charge-recharge cycles.

Ubiquitous Machine Learning Approaches For Chemical & Materials Firms

Ubiquitous Machine Learning Approaches For Chemical & Materials Firms

In the future, all materials scientists and chemists will have access to machine learning tools to enhance their R&D. Seamlessly integrating these underlying operations will not happen quickly, but overlooking the developments in materials informatics will lead to a loss of any competitive advantage.

Custom 3D-Printed Unibody Carbon Fiber E-Bicycle

Custom 3D-Printed Unibody Carbon Fiber E-Bicycle

The Superstrata touts a true unibody construction, 3D-printed in a single pass of continuous carbon fiber thermoplastic composite. Unlike other carbon fiber bikes whose frames are glued and bolted together using dozens of individual parts and fabricated from previous-generation thermoset composite materials, the Superstrata frame is constructed without joints or glue for seamless strength.

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing has been on the rise for many years. Predominantly led by the adoption in high value applications like aerospace & defence and medical. The majority of printer processes use a powder feedstock. This is mainly for powder bed fusion but material jetting and binder jetting are also gaining traction (each with different material requirements and economics).
