3D printing for power generation boosted by U.S. Department of Energy, GE, Siemens and Sandia

The use of 3D printing for the energy sector is highlighted by two recent pieces of news. The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) has awarded a total of $7M to projects intended to develop, “advanced, highly efficient, turbine-based technologies for coal-derived synthesis gas, coal-derived hydrogen, and natural gas.” These projects include several featuring additive manufacturing. […]

Berkeley Lab develops 3D printed water with flexible electronic potential

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have 3D printed liquid structures using a modified Qidi X-one 3D printer. The researchers say the novel technique has a number of potential applications in areas such as flexible “liquid electronics,” medical research and chemical synthesis. Modifying the X-one 3D printer The 3D printed threads […]

Sandia 3D prints solar prototypes to exploit first law of thermodynamics

Sandia National Laboratories, a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), has designed a set of efficient solar power receivers using 3D printing. Multiple complex prototype designs for receivers, which receive solar energy and feed it into an electricity generator, were produced using powder bed fusion 3D printing of a […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Demos Metal 3D Printing at Microscopic Scale

(Engineering.com) – Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) demonstrated a metal 3D printing technique that precisely manages solidification of metal part layers on a microscopic scale. According to the ORNL team, being able to locally control material properties will allow engineers to create metal parts that are stronger and lighter… View Article
