Rapid prototyping is carried out by means of 3D design and 3D printing facilities. Prototypes are produced at micro and macro scales, from few mm2to thousands of cm2.
- 3D Design: SolidWorks
- 3D Printers: Fused Deposition Modeling (1 x 4 Litres + 1 x 600 Litres ) Stereolithography (1 x 1,2 Litres)
- CNC Micro-milling machine
- Cell prototypes: coin cells up to 2 cm2; pouch cells from 10 to 100 cm2 electrodes; Flow cells (10, 25, 300, 1200 and 2400 cm2 electrodes) and flow modules up to 20 cells; Micro-flow cells; Injectable cells
