"Direct Digital Manufacturing of Multi-material and Multi-functional Objects "
By Dr. Yayue Pan,
Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
University of Illinois at Chicago
By combining various materials that serve mechanical, electrical, chemical, thermal, and/or optical functions into a component with locally controlled distributions, we can produce composite and multi-material objects with a higher degree of functionality than would normally be found in a pure material part. However, to manufacture such multi-material components directly out of a digital model without assembly, grand challenges still exist in material manipulation and localized composition control. In this talk, I will present our recent research in addressing these manufacturing challenges by integrating external fields and patterned light beam in varied additive manufacturing processes. First, I will introduce external field assisted projection stereolithography technologies for productions of functional particle-polymer object. After that, I will present a projection light selective melting technology for production of isotropic phase change composites for thermal energy management applications. More energy related applications will be presented with an elevated-temperature direct ink writing method. In these additive manufacturing processes, I will discuss the effectiveness of integrations of external fields and light beam on controlling local material distributions and combining multiple materials. Applications of the 3D printed multi-material parts in sensing and actuating, electronics packaging, and energy storage will be demonstrated.
Dr. Yayue Pan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Her research focuses on multi-material and multi-functional Additive Manufacturing processes for applications in anisotropic composites, sensing and actuating devices, energy management and storage. Dr. Pan holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California. Before joining UIC, she worked as a Research Engineer at 3D Systems Inc. Some of her recent awards include Best Paper Award in 40th MSEC conference, Outstanding Paper Award in 41st SME NAMRC conference, Honorable Mention Paper Award in 8th International Conference on Micromanufacturing, 2017 SME Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, 2017 University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Engineering Faculty Research Award, and several awards from National Science Foundation of United States.
