Adoption of Additive Manufacturing Processes Toward 3D Printed Electronics

Resource Type
  • This research addresses the application of 3D printing technologies in innovative electrical machinery. It takes advantage of the unique design freedom provided by Additive Manufacturing (AM), which has the potential to develop the way electrical motors are manufactured. Recently, researchers have focused on using AM to fabricate parts with integrated electronic components. Several research groups have reported embedding electronic components into 3D printed objects during process interruptions. Though, to date, there is a lack of fabricated devices with electromechanical functionality for parts entirely manufactured using only AM technologies. This study provides a new and different approach to create a fully 3D printed electric motors, with a particular focus on an additively manufactured iron core, winding, insulation, and permanent magnet. In particular, we investigated how to develop 3D printed motor with multi-material and multi-technique to achieve a fully 3D printed motor that can build without embedding devices.
