Our youngest cofounders Dr Ana Ferrández Montero, Dr Joaquín Yus and Dr Zoilo Gonzalez Granados share an article presenting the three main product lines of COLFEED4Print in the industrial spot of the YCN Newsletter (ECerS web page). https://ecers.org/news/140/408/Printable-products-for-new-manufacturing-challenges-by-Ana-Ferr%C3%A1ndez-Montero-Zoilo-Gonz%C3%A1lez-Joaquin-Yus/d,ceramic_details_news
COLFEED4Print commitment with scientific and technological associations like the European Ceramic Society (ECerS) and initiatives like Young Ceramic Network (YCN) is very high as we understand that it is an useful way to stay in contact with some of the creative and innovative environments.
In the article the authors point that additive manufacturing (AM) is an increasingly important part of modern scientific research due to its ability to create complex features, its low waste, its ever-decreasing cost of entry and its rapid prototyping capabilities. This technology has become an indispensable part of modern life, transcending multiple industrial categories. In the last decade and especially in the last five years, many industries are betting on this type of machines in the optimization of their processes.
Nowadays the cost of certain printers are extremely affordable, a robust and reliable FFF printer can easily be purchased for less than 500 euros. This gives research groups and individuals the possibility to build parts with complex architectures in a layered approach, where conventional methods of manufacturing reach the limit.
Our company works on the development of new functional filaments which can be employed in the manufacturing of highly precise components of impeccable quality in every detail and with several functionalities. Filament to manufacture scaffolds for bone or tissue regeneration, conductive electrodes for batteries and catalytic filters used in water treatment are some examples. We are focus on combine advances materials with specific properties with a polymer matrix allowing the easy print of high-performance structures designed by experts in the field…
