F-35 stealth fighter gets boost from 3D printing

United States’ Hill Air Force Base, Utah, is planning the use of 3D printing to replace parts on the F-35, a stealth multirole fighter. The parts will be produced at the base’s 388th Maintenance Group. The 388th Maintenance Group commander, Col. Michael Miles said, “We’re always driving for speed, safety and quality.” In manufacturing replacement parts, 3D […]

RMIT applies metal 3D printing to aircraft maintenance and repair

Professor Milan Brandt at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University is leading a project applying metal 3D printing to service the Australian Defence Forces. Working with national aircraft support service RUAG Australia and the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC) Brandt’s team at RMIT is using laser metal deposition to cut down the cost of maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) operations. […]

Swinburne Industry 4.0 Testlab introduces unique composite 3D printing technology

A new method of carbon fiber composite 3D printing is under development at Swinburne University of Technology. Part of the Australian Prime Minister’s Industry 4.0 Testlab initiative, the so-termed ‘Multilayer’ technology is delivered by Fill, a special machinery and plant construction company headquartered in Austria. “In order to make high value-added products from such materials affordable […]

Australian researchers launch explosive $2 million 3D printer materials partnership

The Australian government has awarded 5 research institutions $2 million USD ($2.6 million AUD) to develop additive manufacturing technology for “energetic materials”. Reactive in content, energetic materials cover a body of polymers that can be used as explosives, or solid rocket fuel. 3D printing the materials gives military and defense operations the potential to reduce […]

RMIT develops 3D printed smartphone microscope for remote healthcare

Looking for a smartphone upgrade? Look no further than your 3D printer. RMIT University scientists have developed a “clip-on” filter that can turn smartphone cameras into a powerful microscope. Capable of viewing specimens as small as 1/200th of a millimeter, the device will come in handy as a point of care diagnostic tool or research […]

Stryker funds $9.29 million project for on demand bone cancer implants

Australia is rapidly growing as a nation with outstanding medical research expertise. In November 2016 the nation opened its first specialist biofabrication unit at the Herston Health Precinct in Brisbane, and projects at its leading institutions, including the University of Wollongong, are active in developing new paradigms in the world of 3D bioprinting. ‘Just in […]

Australische Universität baut Micro und Nano 3D-Druck Forschung-Einrichtung

Die RMIT Universität in Melbourne hat vor Kurzem die 1200 Quadratmeter große MNRF (MicroNano Research Facility) eröffnet. In dieser $ 30 Millionen Forschungseinrichtung steht ein im nanobereich arbeitender 3D-Drucker für Studenten der Fächer Physik, Chemie, Technik, Biologie und Medizin zur Verfügung. Der 3D-Drucker arbeite mithilfe der Zwei-Photonen-Lithografie um 3D-Objekte im Nanobereich aus flüssigem Kunststoff zu erzeugen. Zusätzlich […]
