Innovations in 3D Printing, Robotics, and Additives for Drag Reduction
in Pipes”
report has been added to’s

This issue of Advanced Manufacturing TOE profiles developments in 3D
printing, robotics, and additives for drag reduction in pipes.

Innovations include an additive polymer agent that drastically reduces
drag rates in pipes, a coconut fiber used as drag reduction agent in
circular pipes, an active copolymer solution compatible with various
hydrocarbon fluids, additive manufacturing for high-strength aluminum,
an automated wire-arc welding technology to retain component strength, a
3D printing platform for high-speed 3D printers, a novel 3D printing
technique for soft robotics, metal 3D printing tools for advanced metal
additive manufacturing, a metal 3D printing technology for medical
products, and a flying 3D printer to print large structures.

Research focus areas include rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing),
lightweighting (multimaterial joining, plastics and metals
manufacturing, carbon fiber-based composite manufacturing), smart
robotics (agile robots, consumer robots, swarm robotics, cobots),
monitoring and control (wireless control networks, human machine
interface), and simulation and modeling (design and simulation software).
