3D Printed Artificial Heart Pump Demonstrates Application of Embedded Magnet Printing

Kai von Petersdorff-Campen, a doctoral student in the mechanical and process engineering department at ETH Zurich, set out this spring to make a 3D printed artificial heart pump. He succeeded,…

3D Printing with Magnets in Microgravity

While methods of 3D bioprinting vary, most of them have one thing in common – they print cells layer by layer into a desired shape, which is then transferred to…

Critical Materials Institute Develops Less Expensive 3D Printed Magnets

3D printing is an eclectic technology, used for applications in almost every industry you can think of. It has come a long way from simply being able to make things…

Fabricating Better Magnets with Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing

The high-performance magnets used in electric motors are typically made through processes like powder compaction, for sintered magnets, or injection molding for bonded magnets. These processes require multiple steps –…

In a Non-Exclusive Licensing Agreement, Momentum Technologies Will Commercialize ORNL’s 3D Printed Magnet Technology

In October of 2016, researchers from TU Wien announced that they had used 3D printing to create strong permanent magnets. About a month later, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), which…
