Father and son harness magnetic fields for new type of 3-D printing

Published February 28, 2018

An article on Science News for Students, a publication of the Society for Science & the Public, features Vader Systems, which worked with UB engineers to develop a liquid metal 3-D printing machine that employs magnetic fields to squeeze liquid metal into drops of precise sizes that are squirted onto a surface and then harden to build a solid metal object.

The articles quotes Edward Furlani, professor of electrical engineering, and Chi Zhou, assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering, both in the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, who helped with the project, and includes video and photos by University Communications.
