Northeast Forestry University to develop new technologies to turn wheat straw into 3D printed materials

On December 14, 2015, Northeast Forestry University held a ” national media briefing 3Dprint of agriculture and forestry waste materials “, highlights the university’s School of Electrical and Mechanical Services of Professor Guo Yanling research and development of agricultural and forestry waste powder composite new 3D laser printed materials.The new material with independent intellectual property rights, high accuracy, low cost and energy – saving environmental protection, known as the fourth 3D laser printed materials.90

3D printing technology is becoming prevailing in our daily life, the typical representative is the cheap 3D pens. Many people experience the miracle of 3D printing technology thtough it. Now, this technique is applied in more fields.91

It has been learned that currently used by the 3D laser printed materials roughly divided into metal base materials, polymers and inorganic nonmetallic materials of three.Northeast Forestry University Professor Guo Yanling study team made innovative use of straw, leaves and plant fibre as a 3D printing supplies such as rice husk vision, and successfully launched its new 3D laser printing supplies, has made more than 3 Patents for Invention and utility model patents.

Introduction to Professor Guo Yanling, 3D printing to agricultural and forestry waste powder composite materials and compared to the other three 3D printed materials, not only more energy – saving environmental protection, and very low cost, value-added amazing.For example, after the crushing process of straw and rice husk powder less than 2 per kilogram, but if you add a binder into 3D laser printed material, but at 100 per kilogram, if you print out the finished product, price per kilo of up to to 6000.
