Efficient manufacturing method of ceramic powders for 3D printing of complex structures.

This invention is a method for concentrating advanced ceramic nanosuspensions, particularly zirconia nanosuspensions. Nano size powders have a tendency to agglomerate during processing resulting in nanocomponents which may have undesirable material properties. Our invention comprises of a method of generating dispersion of nano-powder particles in the liquid, reducing the liquid content to concentrate the nanosuspension and processing of advanced ceramics using pressure-less sintering method.
These suspensions and their powders can be made suitable for 3D printing complex ceramic components for applications in high temperature metal filtration, ballistic protection, energy storage, biomedical implants etc.

Novel material and a method to sense chemical ions for medical, agriculture and defence applications.

We have developed a new polymeric material that can be embedded with a variety of sensors to detect chemical ions. Our patented technology can be integrated into a range of existing devices for monitoring ion levels in samples – in real-time.
Our technology creates a range of benefits for following applications.
Medical – Point-of-care diagnostics to monitor blood content
Agriculture – Pesticide and herbicide monitoring
Environment – Drinking water analysis and sampling
Food and drink – Quality control and contaminant detection
Security and defence – Stand-off detection of harmful agents
