Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) announced on Friday that it had licensed two additive manufacturing-related technologies that aim to streamline and ramp up production processes to Knoxville-based Magnum Venus Products Inc. (MVP), a global manufacturer of fluid movement and product solutions for industrial applications in composites and adhesives.
The first co-developed technology is a segmented build platform to increase material flow in large-scale additive manufacturing. The second is a reactive polymer fused deposition manufacturing technology that uses reactive or thermosetting polymers, such as urethanes and epoxies, which are melted and partially cross-linked prior to depositing to form a solidified object.
We highlighted MVP’s collaboration with ORNL in this article in a multi-part series that posted on teknovation.biz in January. As far as the two technologies licensed by MVP, click here to learn more.
