Title: 3D-Printed Permanent Magnets Outperform Conventional Versions, Conserve Rare Materials

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated that permanent magnets produced by additive manufacturing can outperform bonded magnets made using traditional techniques while conserving critical materials. The project is part of DOE’s Critical Materials Institute (CMI), which seeks ways to eliminate and reduce reliance on rare earth metals and other materials critical to the success of clean energy technologies.
