Open Source 3D printing cuts cost from $4,000 to only $0.25 says new study

Slot die coating is a means of adding a thin, uniform film of material to a substrate. It is a widely used method for the manufacturing of electronic devices – including flat screen televisions, printed electronics, lithium-ion batteries and sensors. Up until recently, slot die components were only machined from stainless steel, restricting development and making the process expensive. Now slot dies for in-lab experimental use can be made on a 3D printer at a fraction of the cost. New research from Michigan Tech’s Professor Joshua Pearce , L. Y. Beeker and Adam M. Pringle has made a 3D […]
