Mat-Tech 3D solder printer

A 3D printer for shapes of high hardness, low melting solders for materials; (Tin-bismuth :BiSn)


Mat-tech found a way to use rings using tin-bismuth for soldering applications. To reach this goal, Mat-tech invited Mechanical engineering students to develop a process that can make rings out of the material with programmable dimensions. Also, ensuring the making of the rings at the rate of 50mm^3 per second.
