  • The LeiMot test engine.

    Reducing vehicle weight reduces CO2 emissions and remains a key concern for auto manufacturers. FEV and its partners in the LeiMot (Lightweight Engine) research project use additive manufacturing to demonstrate further combustion engine emission economies. FEV engineers were able to make engine functions, such as cooling or oil circulation, more…

  • The atomic representation of dense graphite-treated copper. Graphmatech and Uppsala researchers discover graphene treatment for the laser environment.

    Researchers at Uppsala University, in collaboration with Swedish graphene materials company Graphmatech, demonstrated a potential breakthrough in the printability of copper for laser additive manufacturing (AM). The discovery significantly lowers copper powder’s reflectivity to achieve denser printed parts. Professor Ulf Jansson’s research group at Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University, has carried…

  • A closeup of the MIT LaserFactory at work.

    A group from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) developed an autonomous system that prints functional, custom-made devices and robots. This single system, known as the LaserFactory uses a three-ingredient recipe that lets users create structural geometry, print traces, and assemble electronic components like sensors and actuators. Two…
