Additive manufacturing with new materials

Additive manufacturing with new materials

The researchers of the Italian Institute of Technology, and the Department of Applied Science And Technology (DISAT) of University based in Turin, are using Robotfactory 3D Printers – mod. 3DLPrinter-HD 2.0+ – to optimize the development of new formulations for DLP (Digital Light Processing) printing.

The goal of the research, conducted in Turin, is to produce innovative formulations, optimized to ensure good printability along with advanced final properties. Obtaining objects with intrinsic functionality.

Nanopart Grafene


Among the materials currently being studied there are some composites containing Silica or Graphene oxide, to obtain improved mechanical properties, and those containing silver nanoparticles generated ‘in situ’ (adding silver precursors in the formulations), with improved electrical properties compared to the starting resins.
