Printed batteries offer thinness and flexibility, enabling new applications, but their production is deceivingly complex. Gunter Hübner from Stuttgart Media University offered some insights at the e-Swiss conference last week.

Printed battery technology: thin, flexible, and low cost for everyday objects

Experimenting in the world of Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) comes with a variety of hurdles. Printing technologies are vastly different in terms of materials compatibility and have pros and cons that make them suitable for particular applications. Choosing materials that match the printing technology you intend to use is the most important decision you’re going to make. But what if one could print, digitally, using any paste and ink on any substrate? Read more

Comparison of Inkjet and Extrusion Printed Tattoo Electrodes for Biomedical Applications

"How strong are 3D printed parts?" That’s the question most engineers ask when they consider 3D printing. After all, it’s crucial to know what’s possible with the tools at your disposal.

Pushing the limits of FFF together: Lifting a 12-tonne tank with a plastic 3D print

Materials scientists Nicole Kleger and Simona Fehlmann have developed a 3D printing process for creating salt templates that they can fill with other materials. One area of application is the creation of highly porous lightweight metal components.

Researchers want to make salt printing marketable

A team of researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Argonne National Laboratory has identified particular 17-4 steel compositions that, when printed, match the properties of the conventionally manufactured version.

Researchers Uncover How to 3D-Print One of the Strongest Stainless Steels

When we choose what to buy, we usually look at the expiration date, brand, quality seals, ingredients, and price. But how do you know if the manufacturer is fully honest – or that the product was properly stored during shipping or while on the shelf?
