13th Panhellenic Scientific Conference on Chemical Engineering (PESXM13)

Creative Nano participated in the 13th Panhellenic Scientific Conference on Chemical Engineering (PESXM13) that took place on 📅 2-4 June 2022 in Patras, Greece.One of our oral presentations was about “Cr- and Pd-free electroless plating on 3D printed photocurable resin parts”. This work is part of the 3DPlate project under the call RESEARCH-CREATE-INNOVATE. The project’s scientific and technological objectives focus on the design, printing, and finally electroplating, of a wide range of 3D personalized items Read more…

Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Tester

Today we are even closer to our goals! We just received our new Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Tester which accurately measures the strength of the bond between the coating and the substrate in order to evaluate the quality of the coating. As you can see in the picture below, the first measurements have already been done. More results are yet to come!

Thermoplastic composites to replace metal components of batteries

AIMPLAS is developing the VETERIA21 Project as part of a collaboration agreement between the Valencian Regional Government’s Ministry of Innovation, Universities, Science and Digital Society and AIMPLAS to provide funding through grants for technology centers to carry out innovation projects in 2021 in collaboration with companies within the framework of smart specialization. The aim of the project is to optimize the transformation processes of thermoplastic composites in order to improve their properties so they can replace metals in electric vehicle battery casings.

How Volkswagen Used 3D Printing and Electroplating to Create Metal Hubcaps

Volkswagen’s “Type 20” concept vehicle is a modern reimagining of a classic VW microbus from 1962, and a showpiece for the automaker’s next-generation technologies. VW’s designers worked with Autodesk to create several generatively-designed structural components, including a set of highly expressive cast-aluminum wheels. Those wheels needed hubcaps that drew on VW’s iconic styling while still fitting properly among the organic forms of the spokes. The solution: print the hubcaps on a Formlabs desktop SLA 3D Read more…

Cnano collaborates with Costas Gaïtis

We are excited and honored to announce a research collaboration with the internationally renowned visual artist Costas Gaïtis.The target of the collaboration is that 3D-printed resin creations and sculptures with complex geometries, crafted by Costas Gaïtis, will be firstly metallized and then electroplated using eco-friendly processes.Plating on plastics just got aesthetically upgraded! Stay tuned! In the following website you may see some of the creations of Costas Gaïtis. https://gaitiscostas.wixsite.com/mysite
