Harvard University to develop new 3D printing can use acoustic control droplet forming
Sep 05, 2018

From Harvard University, John Paulsen A school of engineering and applied science (SEAS) researchers have developed A new 3D printing technology, the technology USES sound waves from the liquid producing with unprecedented composition and viscosity of liquid droplets.According to the researchers, this technology can be on-demand to 3D printing of numerous materials, and can be used in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, as well as optical and conductive material.


At present, the use of 3D printer inkjet manufacturing microcapsules for drug delivery.According to the researchers, inkjet use droplets to form solid 3 d printing, but it applies only to liquid viscosity is about 10 times of water.However, the researchers interested in many more viscous liquid.For example, biological pharmaceutical and biotechnology used in printing ink viscosity of biopolymers and carrying cells at least 100 times more water.Some sugar biopolymers like honey sticky, viscosity is 25000 times higher than water.

The fluid viscosity with temperature and composition and a sharp change, print the optimization parameters to control the droplet size is becoming more difficult.
