  • Patent number: 9754412
    Abstract: One embodiment of the invention is a slicing engine that generates two or more slices of a virtual 3D model given a slice plane. The slicing engine then determines connection points on each of the slices that indicate how the 3D model is to be reconnected by the user when the 3D model is fabricated. The slicing engine also determines an optimized layout for the various slices of the 3D model on fabrication material for minimal use of the material. The user is then able to “print” the layout on the fabrication material via 3D printers, and connect the various printed slices according to the connection points to build a physical representation of the 3D model.

    Abstract: A method for the production of a macroporous ceramic foam, wherein: (a) forming a ceramic slip comprising a substantially homogeneous mixture of a ceramic particulate, an organic binder in a liquid carrier, and optionally one or more surfactants, wherein at least one surfactant is present if the organic binder does not function as a surfactant, and wherein the ceramic slip preferably has a viscosity in the range of from 15 to 200 mPas?1; (b) foaming the ceramic slip; and (c) heating the foamed ceramic slip at a temperature sufficient to substantially burn out the organic binder. The macroporous ceramic foam is suitable for use in biomedical applications such as synthetic bones, tissue engineering scaffolds or drug delivery devices.

  • Publication number: 20130334726
    Abstract: Fibrous insulation products manufactured with surfactants and methods for making are disclosed. The surfactant may be neutral or charged and, if charged, may be anionic, cationic or zwitterionic, although neutral or non-ionic provide suitable results. The surfactant may be of any chemical structure class, although ethoxylated alcohols and ethoxylated ethers have been found most suitable. Surfactant may be sprayed onto mineral fibers as a separate dispersion or as part of a binder dispersion. The surfactant my optionally be used with an organo-silane coupling agent, such as an amino-silane.

  • Patent number: 8597554
    Abstract: In a method for manufacturing conglomerate articles in sheet form, a mix comprising the following is prepared: an expanded inert granular material; a filler consisting of hollow inorganic microspheres and a plasticizer (clay, quartz or other powder mineral, cellulose); an aqueous silicon-containing binder. A layer of mix, where necessary coated with a fiberglass meshwork in order to increase the mechanical strength thereof, is deposited on a temporary support and subjected to vacuum vibrocompression. The resultant rough-formed sheet is heated at a controlled temperature so as to cause evaporation of the water present in the mix. A light, sound-absorbing, heat-insulating sheet, rated in Class 0 in terms of fire reaction, suitable to be plastered or painted superficially and used for forming panels and partitions for internal and external use, is obtained.
