Prof. Stefanie Feih, ADaPT - Spearheading a manufacturing revolution on the Gold Coast
Episode description (43 mins)
Professor Stefanie Feih is a Cambridge-educated world expert in advanced manufacturing and materials performance. As the Director of the ADaPT Institute at Griffith University, she and her team are ushering in a new era of virtual design, rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) - and working hand in hand with Gold Coast companies to incorporate these new 'Industry 4.0' technologies into their operations. This is a fascinating dive into the future of manufacturing; learn about the process for designing and 3D printing components and devices (or even whole houses) using metals, polymers, ceramics and concrete. There are a myriad of applications including industrial parts, satellite and marine components, medical devices, individualised implants - even building models of aneurysms in the brain for practising robotic surgery! An episode not to be missed.
