CLASS OF 3D PRINTING IN METAL AT IMDEA MATERIALS

Jul 23, 2018 | 0 comments

The students of the Master in Engineering and Additive Manufacturing, MIFA have had the opportunity to visit the facilities of IMDEA in Getafe, Madrid.

The network of IMDEA Institutes (Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies), were created by the community of Madrid with the aim of promoting scientific and technological R & D + i activities and around seven strategic areas: water, energy, materials, nanosciences, networks, software and business.

Together with María Teresa Pérez Prado, senior researcher and deputy director of IMDEA Materials, MIFA students have had the opportunity to move the classroom for a day and receive their classes on additive metal manufacturing there. During the first part of the visit, they visited the modern facilities and experimentation laboratories where they saw the advances in multifunctional nanocomposites based on polymers, solar cells based on nanocarbon systems, and electrochemical energy storage. They also showed us the chemical reactor to produce carbon nanotube fibers.

Then the students concentrated on the agenda of the program where they delved into 3D metal printing technology. In addition to knowing the manufacturing processes of metallic powder, the characterization of them, the own defectology of metallic powder in different alloys, etc. They were able to see the IMDEA facilities for the manufacture and characterization of dust as well as the future sintering facilities using SLM techniques (Renishaw SLM System) and characterization of the structures manufactured using this technique.

Junto a María Teresa Pérez Prado, investigadora senior y directora adjunta de IMDEA Materiales, los estudiantes del MIFA han tenido la ocasión de trasladar el aula por un día y recibir allí sus clase sobre fabricación aditiva en metales. Durante la primera parte de la visita, visitaron las modernas instalaciones y  laboratorios de experimentación donde vieron los avances en nanocompuestos multifuncionales basados en polímeros, células solares basadas en sistemas de nanocarbono, y almacenamiento electroquímico de energía. Además nos mostraron el reactor químico para producir fibras de nanotubos de carbono.

As always, EDDM Training puts a lot of emphasis on the importance of visiting companies in the sector and giving students the opportunity to get out of the routine, to live a different class day and see “in situ” the work and research that is taking place. Nationwide in 3D printing and advanced digital manufacturing.
