Focus of the laboratory

The MAMUT 2 laboratory is focused on the production of filaments from low-temperature polymers (e.g. PCL ...) as well as the production of filaments from high-temperature polymers (e.g. PEEK, PPSU ....). Part of the production process is also the recording of the diameter of the filament, where it is possible to analyze this kind of parameter from the point of view of the quality of the produced filament. Students can thus verify theoretical knowledge in the field of production technologies in the form of produced filament. Another area of interest of the given laboratory is the filament recycling process, where it is possible to analyze the recycling process in terms of the production parameters of re-extrusion of filaments.

The output itself in the form of the manufactured filament can be further investigated in the 3D printing process using FDM technology. By setting and optimizing the required parameters in the pre-processing of 3D printing for a new type of material, students and employees of this workplace acquire knowledge in software and hardware solutions to the given problem. The output in the given area are experimental samples or models, which are further subjected to mechanical or biological testing.
