Kansas Convergence Sciences Awardee Researchers Target AM Waste

A team of interdisciplinary researchers, the Smart Fusion Material Research Cluster, at Wichita State University, Witchita, Kansas, is working to create sustainable Additive Manufacturing practices that reduce waste.
The project is one of the awardees of Wichita State University’s Convergence Sciences Initiative, an effort to bring the strengths of both faculty and students from a range of disciplines together, giving them support to develop research programs which drive the diversity and growth of the Kansas economy, while addressing global challenges. Winners of the Convergence Sciences awards will be given $300,000 over three years.

University of Wolverhampton Researchers Additively Manufacture COVID-19 Resistant Metal

The University of Wolverhampton’s Additive Manufacturing Functional Materials (AMFM) research group, Wolverhampton, UK, has developed an antiviral material made from copper, silver and tungsten which can be additively manufactured and reportedly kills the coronavirus (COVID-19).

AMFM explains that the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for materials and surfaces that can kill or suppress the virus to help reduce airborne and surface-based transmission. With expertise in additively manufacturing antimicrobial biomaterials, the research group refocused their efforts to investigate antiviral materials that could combat COVID-19.
