Mechnano’s Olga “Dr. O” Ivanova to Present Innovative Analysis of Static Dissipative Resins at RAPID + TCT 2024


Mechnano is excited to share that Olga “Dr. O” Ivanova, Director of Applications & Technology, will be delivering an examination of static dissipative resins at RAPID + TCT 2024 in Los Angeles. Her presentation, “Unveiling the Differences: An In-Depth Analysis of Static Dissipative Resins,” is set to take place on June 26, 2024 at 10 a.m.

The development of electrostatic discharge (ESD) safe materials for use in Additive Manufacturing (AM) poses unique challenges, particularly in achieving the necessary surface and volume conductivity. In Dr. O’s upcoming presentation, the focus will be on the complexities involved in integrating conductive fillers into resins for Vat Photopolymerization (VP). Among various Additive Manufacturing methods, VP stands out as the preferred choice for producing components that require smooth surface finishes and fine features. Prior to 2021, options for ESD-safe materials in VP were limited. Dr. Ivanova will shed light on recent advancements in ESD-safe resin development for VP and provide a thorough analysis of several rigid, static-dissipative resins that are currently available.

The presentation will highlight variations in dispersion quality, concentrations of carbon nanotubes, electrical assessment, and the consistency of static dissipative performance in the manufactured parts. Attendees can expect to gain valuable insights into the nuances of static dissipative resins and their implications for AM applications.

“We are excited to share our latest research findings on static dissipative resins at RAPID + TCT 2024,” said Dr. O. “Our goal is to provide AM professionals with a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in selecting the right materials for ESD-safe applications, ultimately empowering them to make informed decisions that drive innovation and excellence in Additive Manufacturing.”

RAPID + TCT 2024, one of the premier events in the AM industry, brings together leading experts, innovators, and manufacturers to explore the latest advancements in 3D printing, additive manufacturing, and related technologies. Mechnano invites attendees to join Dr. Ivanova’s presentation to gain valuable insights into the future of ESD-safe materials in AM.
