3D Printing

The challenge of climate change requires immense efforts to develop energy-efficient systems


3D Printing for Experimental Techniques

The use of 3D printing enables the rapid and efficient production of complex shapes for experimental techniques, holders for measurement instrumentation, as well as transition pieces, without the need for elaborate model construction. Scalability is particularly noteworthy. Experimental setups can be created as tabletop models or as components for laboratory test rigs or other applications. TinniT offers a range of printing materials, including resin, PLA, ABS, Kevlar, Onyx, and many others. Dimensions of up to 1.1m are possible. TinniT provides support in setting up your experimental setup. Please feel free to contact us.

Cellular Materials in 3D Printing

Foam structures, bionic structures, textiles, sediments, and many other materials can be replicated or digitally designed using Voronoi algorithms. The triangulated surfaces can be 3D printed using materials such as PLA or other materials, serving as placeholder models for investment casting. This approach allows for the convenient production of highly complex geometries such as metal foams and lattice structures in metal. Alternatively, through suitable surface treatments, the printed structures can be functionalized. For example, foam structures can be used as support material and coated with a membrane for pollutant adsorption. This method is applicable across different scales. Do you have ideas for innovative structures, such as a heat exchanger, an adsorber, or similar applications? Feel free to contact us.


Prototyping through 3D Printing & Numerical Simulation

The planning of equipment requires not only numerical calculations but also constructive designs. With the ability to 3D print and assemble individual parts, practical testing becomes easily achievable. This allows customers to visualize and evaluate the parts and components. Abstract CAD designs can be better understood and discussed in terms of their functionality through practical examples. Create your custom prototype prior to actual manufacturing. By using appropriate Boolean operations, numerical models can be derived quickly and efficiently from the designs, enabling simulation of desired physical processes. This form of digitization is indispensable in the future.
