German scientists using ViscoTec print heads to 3D print multi-material electric motor parts

A pair of scientists from the Technical University of Chemnitz in Germany are using a novel multi-material additive manufacturing process to produce electric motors. By combining 3D printing with CNC machining technology, the team has demonstrated how to manufacture ceramic and metal-based motor components that increase the overall efficiency of the device. The process, developed by Johannes Rudolph and Fabian Lorenz of the Professorship of Electrical Energy Conversion Systems and Drives, uses ViscoTec print heads mounted on a multi-material 3D printer to extrude layers of both metallic and ceramic pastes. 3D printed electric coil The researchers say that by […]
