our 3D printing lab we have built a prototype of a printer that is able to
print structures in sand and other ceramic materials using an environmentally
friendly binder system. These are materials that are of great interest to several brances of
industries where they can be used for moulds and cores for metal, concrete and
polymer castings or to manufacture ”green parts” in ceramics that are
subsequiently sintered to solid components.
are very few suppliers to this market, most of which use binders based on toxic
organic materials. Our system uses an inorganic binder to the benefit of the
working environment and reducing waste problems.
look for students that are interested in working with optimisation of 3D
printing systems and who are keen to build devices of their own so that we can
move the first prototype closer to ann industrially useful system.
the project there is a possibility to work together with several Danish users
of printed moulds and International suppliers of binders.
This is a very wide area of research
and there are many possibilities to create specific projects of varying length
and complexity for students that look for projects that combine processing and
materials science, and who are interested to work in a field with a high degree
