More advances in 3d printed magnets!
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has partnered with Dallas-based startup Momentum Technologies in the development, licensing, and commercialization of its groundbreaking 3D printed magnet technology.
The innovation first crossed the public’s radar back in November of 2016, when ORNL researchers proved that permanent magnets made by additive manufacturing can reliably outperform traditionally made magnets. As part of its initial study, the Department of Energy lab began fabricating isotropic, near-net-shape, neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) bonded magnets using the famed Big Area Additive Manufacturing machine.
