Printing Electro-Tomography

Project description

Optimised and cost-effective 3D printing

3D printing has taken the world by storm with the market expected to top 16.5 million euro by the end of 2022. Despite its growth, challenges exist. Equipment and product costs are high and printing speed is inversely proportional to accuracy. As it is difficult to get real-time, in situ feedback, defects are not easily monitored and quality potentially compromised. The EU-funded PET project is developing a cost-effective way to help with quality issues. It will use electrical impedance measurements during the printing process along with conductively doped material to get real-time feedback during the printing process. PET says this method could be implemented on a wider scale, with faster and higher quality prints hitting the market.
