POWERFUSE S: Fusing the gap between 3D-printing and Additive Manufacturing – the revolutionary manufacturing method for better products and a more sustainable future

Project description

Transitioning 3D printing into additive manufacturing

3D printing, particularly plastic 3D printing, has enormous potential and is garnering great interest in several sectors and fields. However, despite all its possibilities, current plastic 3D printing solutions provide rough, uneven surfaces that are matt, vulnerable to dirt and a hotbed for germs, while also being unappealing. The EU-funded Powerfuse S 4 AM project aims to overcome these issues by developing and introducing VaporFuse Surfacing. This environmentally clean physiochemical process smooths the surface. It also allows for water-repellent, airtight and glossy surfaces, can be wiped in the case of being used for food or medical applications, and enables 3D printing to transition into additive manufacturing.
