Argonne National Laboratory: 3D Printing PEEK Counter-Current Centrifugal Contactor Components

Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory are analyzing materials for use in 3D printing, and have released results in the recently published ‘Additive Manufacturing Fabrication of PEEK Counter-Current Centrifugal Contactor Components.’…

Argonne National Laboratory Using 3D Printed PEEK Contactors to Recycle Molybdenum More Efficiently

Just a few years ago, the FDA approved the first Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) to be produced domestically without the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU). This medical isotope helps radiologists detect bone…

Argonne National Laboratory: Recycling Nuclear Material Through 3D Printing

‘This additional step may reduce the length of storage almost one thousandfold’ – Andrew Breshears, Argonne nuclear chemist 3D printing and additive manufacturing processes are progressing at lightning speed, but…

Caterpillar & Argonne National Laboratory Using Additive Manufacturing to Improve Fuel Efficiency of Diesel Engines

Additive manufacturing will play a significant role in a major project gearing up between Caterpillar and US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory to explore better efficiency and reduced…

Northwestern University & Argonne National Laboratory Examine Directed Energy Deposition by X-Ray

While the structures produced through 3D printing can be fascinating, tangible, and extremely inspiring—not to mention actually useful—you may still find the operational processes behind the technology to be a…

3D Printing Viscous Materials: Advances Toward 3D Printed Rocket Fuel, Pharmaceuticals, Cookie Dough

A 3D printed object has to be able to support the weight of its own layers, as objects that are too fluid can collapse under their own weight. That’s why…

Argonne National Laboratory Researching Metal 3D Printing for Improved Military Applications

The military has been enthusiastically exploring 3D printing applications in a number of areas, from 3D printed drones to submarine hulls. But perhaps the most intriguing applications of 3D printing…

Powerful X-Rays Put to Use in Study of Physics Behind Metal 3D Printing Process as Researchers Seek to Eliminate Structural Defects

From medical tools and aerospace turbines to components for race cars and satellites, it may seem like metal 3D printing can be used to magically make just about anything, for less…
