The Role of 3D printing in the Biomedical sector

When we think of 3D printing, we might envision a printer-like device producing three-dimensional objects with various applications, such as creating prototypes, customized products, or even intricate works of art. But 3D printing is much more than that! Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a family of techniques, commonly known as 3D printing, which can produce objects […]

Metal 3D-printing Workshop

L’Università Mercatorum e Università di Roma Tor Vergata presentano il workshop “3D printing di Strutture Metalliche da Feedstock Polimerici: Analisi tecnica e sostenibilità“. Il workshop esplorerà la stampa 3D di metalli, come il Titanio, a partire da filamenti con binder polimerico, oggetto del progetto 3D-PolMet finanziato dalla Regione Lazio, “Progetti di Gruppi di Ricerca 2020” […]

ESA OSIP Project conclusion!

🚀 Exciting News: Another Project Concluded! 🛰️ We are thrilled to share the successful wrap-up of Project OSIP, funded by the European Space Agency via the Open Space Innovation Platform! Our focus? To develop new 3D-printable magnetic materials for #space applications. 🌐 In particular, we developed composite materials based on soft magnetic fillers (potentially sourced from resources on the Moon’s surface) […]

Project ASSARTA conclusion!

🚀 Recently wrapped up research project! 🔬 Project ASSARTA (“Assiemi strutturali secondari avanzati realizzati con tecnologia additiva”, or in english “Advanced secondary structural assemblies via additive manufacturing”) was just successfully completed. With funding from Agenzia Spaziale Italiana and led by HB Technology S.R.L., we collaborated with amazing partners Thales Alenia Space and Politecnico di Milano to develop a topologically optimized 3D-printed aluminium […]

Filament 3D-printing of Titanium from biobased feedstock

In our latest paper, published in Elsevier’s Journal of Materials Research and Technology, we report on the filament 3D-printing of Titanium using biobased feedstock! 3D-printing of metals, which allows for complex geometries unattainable with traditional techniques, is generally carried out via Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) techniques, which are, however, extremely expensive and present additional difficulties […]

INTEGRATE project on Swiss TV

The INTEGRATE project was recently featured in the “Il Giardino di Albert” science program on Swiss Italian TV (Radiotelevisione Svizzera, RSI). The report (in Italian) brilliantly illustrates the background, aim and workings of the project aimed to develop artificial soft muscles powered by metabolic energy, in which the Material Science and Technology group will develop […]

Project INTEGRATE kick-off

The EIC INTEGRATE Pathfinder project is off and running! On 9 and 10 June 2022 the project partners gathered in Fribourg (Switzerland) at the Adolphe Merkle Institute (AMI) for in-person meetings and the launch of the four years of research activities to develop novel artificial muscles. The inspiring kick-off meeting gathered Michael Mayer, Alessandro Ianiro, José […]

Project ZiMuX kick-off

The Material Science and Technology group joined Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, University of Bologna, University of Napoli “Partenope” and National Research Council (CNR) at the Policlinico Gemelli, in Rome, for the kick-off meeting of Project ZiMuX in the morning of 31 May 2022. The fruitful session paved the road towards the 36 months research […]
