Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, and its research partners have been awarded $1 million AUD towards a $3.5 million project to produce 3D printed composites on an industrial scale.

Awarded via the Global Innovation Linkages Program, the money will go towards the development and mass 3D printing production of lightweight composite parts like in Swinburne’s Industry 4.0 Testlab. The end products will be suitable for the aerospace and automotive sectors.

Deputy - Vice-Chancellor - Professor - Aleksandar - Subic

Swinburne Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Aleksandar Subic, comments, “The Global Innovation Program Linkage grant recognizes our leadership in Industry 4.0 transformation of the advanced manufacturing sector through collaboration with our partners in Australia and Germany.”

“I AM PLEASED THAT OUR RESEARCH TEAM, LED BY PROFESSOR BRONWYN FOX, HAS SECURED THIS SUPPORT TO EXPAND THE SCOPE AND REACH OF THEIR HIGH IMPACT TECHNOLOGIES AND PROCESSES.”

Project - Swinburne - Team - Method - Carbon

In this project, the Swinburne team will apply a recently developed method of carbon fiber 3D printing, termed ‘Multilayer.’ Delivered by Fill, a specialist machinery and plant construction company headquartered in Austria, Multilayer 3D printing works by thermally bonding successive layers of tape feedstock, producing semi-finished fiber composites. These machines can also be integrated into an existing forming and injection moulding processes allowing for a very high production rate.
