3D metallic printing by extrusion of powder-polymer mixtures
12 month Post-Doctoral position
Lab. SIMAP of Grenoble INP, collaboration with G2Elab and CEA LITEN
The aim of this project is to study the development of parts with complex geometry of mono or multi-materials by this technique. Copper heat sinks and heat exchangers for application in power electronics will be printed and sintered. The removal of organic compounds, the formation of porosities on printing, their elimination during sintering and the shape distortion of parts will be particularly studied. The production of multimaterial steel/copper parts of complex architecture will then be discussed for application in plastic moulding, with the aim of controlling the co-sintering of the 2 materials.
