3D Printing is not a new concept but how it’s developing and advancing is a different story altogether. We are within reach of more affordable and rapid prototyping and instant manufacturing. With that in mind, how has 3D printing changed the manufacturing industry as we know it today? What can we expect going forward?Continue reading
Graphene seems to be making headlines across various industries and Highways England has also joined in. They are partnering with the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) in Manchester to investigate the use of graphene on surfaces. The idea is to find out whether adding graphene to roads and pavements could result in decreased deterioration.
It all started when Prof Sir Andre Geim and Prof Sir Kostya Novoselov first isolated the material at Manchester University in 2004. GEIC opened in December 2018 to specialise in the rapid development and upscaling of graphene and other applications for 2D materials.Continue reading
