While energy efficiency is becoming the overriding goal of virtually every industrial company, many research institutes are conducting studies into materials and solutions which can help conserve raw materials and energy resources. Among such institutes is the German Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht which is using VSHAPER PRO 3D Printer to analyse metal-polymer hybrid structures.
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht focuses on development and testing of especially lightweight and advanced engineering materials which when used in industry can considerably improve the effectiveness of energy use in production processes. An overriding goal of the institute is to conserve raw materials and energy resources.
The development of new materials and fabrication techniques has become a matter of success for different industries, such as transportation, medical appliances and civil engineering. […]
