Next Gen Additive Manufacturing: Predicting Polymer Printability and Performance

ACS Webinars

Additive manufacturing is rapidly advancing and demands a multi-disciplinary approach to tackle the complex challenges of today and its future. Therefore, how does one design macromolecular materials for advanced manufacturing that focus on establishing structure-property-processing relationships which will accelerate discovery and innovation?

Join experts Timothy Long of Arizona State University and Amy Peterson of The University of Massachusetts Lowell as they discuss the various modalities of additive manufacturing of polymers, especially in terms of their requirements for polymer reactivity, process rheology, and resolution of printed objects. During this free interactive broadcast, novel recent advances will be highlighted like fused filament fabrication, vat photopolymerization, direct ink-write, big area additive manufacturing, and ambient reactive extrusion.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Bryan Vogt of Penn State University and co-produced with ACS Applied Polymer Materials.

What You Will Learn

  • Fundamental understanding of the five platforms for additive manufacturing of polymers
  • Awareness of the synergy of designing polymer reactivity with tailored functionality, required process viscosity that aligns with various printing platforms, and the opportunities for resolution and geometric control of printed objects
  • Appreciation for current trends in the literature for additive manufacturing of polymers and the design of polymer structure for rapidly emerging printing platforms
