by Clare Scott In April 2023, NASA and The Ohio State University published a scientific paper about the development of a new alloy for additive manufacturing. Called GRX-810, the alloy is an oxide dispersion strengthened alloy, meaning that it is strengthened by tiny particles containing oxygen atoms and spread throughout it. GRX-810 is an example of a superalloy. Current superalloys for AM can withstand temperatures of up to 1093°C (2000°F).…

By Clare Scott Additive manufacturing (AM) has been making a significant impact on healthcare for several years. While some of that impact comes in the form of research advances, AM also offers many benefits directly at the point of care (PoC). One well-known use for 3D printing in healthcare is the creation of anatomical models. Using increasingly detailed patient scans, physicians can print precise replicas of tumors or areas that…

by Clare Scott Earth Day is right around the corner, and it’s a good reminder to consider how “green” we are in our work and personal lives. If you work in the additive manufacturing industry, you likely know that the technology is often hailed as being more eco-friendly than others. This is not necessarily true – however, AM has the potential to be a sustainable industry if approached in the…
