Projects

Solutions

As an innovative company, we are constantly looking for creative technical solutions based on our materials. Together with partners from industry and research, we develop new concepts for implementation of these materials into novel components. We are open for new projects with potential new partners and customers.

 

Plastic electric motor and electric magnet

We develop hard and soft magnetic as well as electrically conductive filaments for the additive manufacturing of electric motors and electromagnets in order to achieve the greatest possible weight reduction with low thermal losses. In addition, we integrate superparamagnetic nanoparticles into plastic and extrude into filaments for production of magnetic cores for HF electric motors.

 

Abrasion-resistant, machinable components

Plastic-based metal-filled filament becomes shaped by FDM 3D-printing process. The produced machine components have an increased flexural strength and abrasion resistance due to embedded metal particles in the plastic matrix. This matrix material allows a vibration reduction of the whole machine due to the reduced total weight of the component.

 

Metal-ceramic-based filaments for 3D printing

Metal particles are coated with smaller ceramic particles and extruded in the form of soluble filament. The component is then printed and heat treated. The properties of the metal and the ceramic are specifically combined with each other.

 

Coated micropowder for electrophotographic 3D printing

Plastics are ground into microparticles below 50μm. Then the microparticles become coated with smaller silica-based particles to prevent their agglomeration. These particles are used for electrophotographic 3D printing in aerospace and other places.

 

Graphite-magnetite alloys for lithium-free energy storage systems

Magnetite particles are coated with graphene and processed into electrodes. The electrical capacitance becomes measured by electrochemical potentiometers by measurement. This  work represents the first approach to the production of lithium-free electrodes.

 

Printed sensors for liquid analysis

We print our electrically conductive filament into electrodes with a special geometry. These electrodes are arranged planar in a sensor to each other and allow the measurement of the dielectric properties and thus the chemical composition of liquids. Later fields of application will be the petrochemical industry and environmental analysis.
