Research Personnel Leader:

Research Duration Start:
1 January 2019
31 December 2021
Research Location ITDI
Research Description The project will develop various materials from local sources for use on single and multi-material additive (MM-AM). Materials that will be developed and optimized includes ceramics, polymers, nanomaterials and any combination of two or more of these materials in compliance with the established standards on AM.
Research Objectives To establish a facility for design, materials development and testing for additive manufacturing prototyping To enhance capability on design, materials development and testing for additive manufacturing application in accordance with standard To qualify, charecterize and develop of local raw materials for single and multimaterials additive manufacturing application To develop, characterize, test and prototype using developed materials for Multimaterial Additive Manufacturing To optimize of performance and material utilization in additive manufacturing
