Formulation for 3D Printing

 

By using high throughput methods and approaches to identify materials and formulations suitable for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing, the Formulation for 3D printing grant aims to solve the long standing problem of how to formulate product with the properties required for its proper performance.

Working together in a multidisciplinary team, materials scientists, chemists, pharmacists, manufacturing engineers, chemical engineers will establish a library of materials that will free industry in the future from time consuming formulation problems, break the process and material links that slow progress and allow a focus on exploitation of the key benefits of 3D printing: freedom of design, complexity and personalised manufacture.
