Ceramic Printing and Folding

New Ceramic Printing, Folding Process Could Lead To Lightweight Parts.

Technology Review (4/15, Bourzac) reports, “A new way of printing and folding ceramic and metal lattices into miniature structures could lead to novel lightweight engineering structures. The technique involves making latticed sheets from ceramic ink, then folding and heating these sheets to create intricate shapes.” The researchers, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Northwestern University, say the method “fills a need for a way to fabricate complex structures on the centimeter scale–too small for conventional molding or machining, and too big for lithography or similar techniques.” Among the noted potential applications for the process are aerospace, tissue engineering and industrial chemical production.

Database of the Week: CSA Materials Research Database with Metadex

The CSA Materials Research Database with METADEX brings together in one place the majority of the leading materials science databases, with specialist content on materials science, metallurgy, ceramics, polymers, and composites used in engineering applications.  Everything from raw materials and refining through processing, welding and fabrication to end uses, corrosion, performance and recycling is covered in depth for all metals, alloys, polymers, ceramics, and composites.  Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

ProQuest Deep Indexing: Materials Science supplements the Materials Research Database with METADEX and related files with access to deep indexing for tables, figures, graphs, charts and other illustrations from the scholarly research and technical literature for selected records.  Records from the database appear with searches of the Materials Research Database with METADEX and related databases to provide an additional path for discovery.

For additional information, please see the CSA Materials Research Database with Metadex Factsheet or begin searching the database at CSA Illumina.

The CSA Materials Research Database with Metadex is one of many information resources brought to you by the Brown Science and Engineering Library!  Ask for a demonstration of this database or about other resources that can help you work faster, smarter and better!
