3-D printing accelerates research on wind blades

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

A new 3-D printing process developed jointly by Sandia National Laboratories and Oak Ridge National Laboratory could radically accelerate the development of more-efficient wind energy technology. Sandia, Oak Ridge and wind-blade manufacturer TPI Composites worked together to design wind turbine blades fabricated from a 3-D printed mold.

Associated Environmental Systems environmental test chambers are used in many of our country's national labs ensuring new research and development products are reliable and durable.
