ORNL and Cincinnati aim to improve 3-D printer

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) — Oak Ridge National Laboratory is partnering with Cincinnati Inc. to develop a 3-D printing system that can print faster, larger and more cheaply than current systems.

According to the laboratory, most 3-D polymer printers on the market today can only fabricate small prototype parts. Through this partnership, ORNL and Harrison, Ohio-based Cincinnati hope to build a system that is 200 to 500 times faster and capable of printing polymer components 10 times larger than today's common printers.

Such a system could introduce new capabilities to the U.S. tooling sector and strengthen domestic manufacturing.

The partnership supports the Department of Energy's Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative.
