3D printer produces individually tailored magnet fields

However, the Christian-Doppler (CD) Laboratory "Advanced Magnetic Sensing and Materials" at the Vienna University of Technology has now successed in producing complexly formed magnets using a 3D printer.

The magnets are designed on a computer and optimized until the magnetic field fulfills all desired requirements. If the magnets are made via an injection molding process, this requires the creation of a special mold which is very time-consuming and expensive for the production of small quantities. The researchers in Vienna have developed a magnet printer. They utilize a conventional, low-priced 3D printer and specially produced filaments of magnetic micro granulate held together by a polymer binding material. The material is heated in the printer and applied point by point in the desired locations using a nozzle. In this way a three-dimensional object is created composed of about 90% magnetic material and 10% plastic. The magnet designs created on the computer can be implemented by the 3D printer with an accuracy of well under one millimeter.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
