Graphene 3D Lab (web site) (TSXV: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) looks to be entering a phase of rapid revenue growth.
In addition to planned collaboration with smart table and wall systems provider Ideum, (see article/news), Graphene 3D Lab announced they’ve doubled their production capacity to meet demand for conductive 3D printer filaments sold through the Company’s on-line store at BlackMagic3D.com.
While Graphene 3D Lab sells an array of other filaments, including Nylon 680, it is the electrically conductive, graphene filaments that I believe will prove to be game-changing for the 3D printing industry due to the applications
Graphene 3D Lab lists the following applications for the company’s conductive 3D printer filaments:
Conductive Graphene Filament can be used to create capacitive (touch) sensors used in a wide range of electronics which you interact with on a daily basis; it is an excellent material for designing human interface devices! Capacitive sensing can also be used to measure proximity, position, humidity, fluid levels, and acceleration.
- Gaming controllers
- Digital keyboards
- Drum Machines
- MIDI controllers
Another application of Conductive Graphene Filament is in the creation of electrically conductive circuitry for use in electronics. We love that 3D printing is a push-button process and we aim to keep it that way. Traditionally, 3D printing enthusiasts needed to add circuitry to their creation after it was printed in plastic, using copper wire; by offering a conductive filament, you can print graphene wiring simultaneously with your build process!
- Interfacing computers, Arduino boards, and other components
- Powering LED’s
- Wearable electronics
Note: The electrical resistance of a circuit must be considered in order to successfully use Conductive Graphene Filament in electronics applications; specifically, the filament is designed for low-current applications.
Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Shielding
The superior conductivity offered with our Conductive Graphene Filament is not only excellent for 3D printed circuitry and sensors – it also means our filament is wholly capable of use in EMI and RF shielding applications critical for use in a range of industries, including:
- Hospital equipment
- Medical devices
- Enclosures and packaging
- Aerospace and Automotive
EMI/RF shielding is used to block the electromagnetic field and radio frequency electromagnetic radiation within a space; it is important to use EMI and RF shielding in a hospital, laboratory, or aerospace setting to protect against competing signals because they may lead to equipment giving false measurements. EMI/RF shielding accomplishes this by blocking AM, FM, TV, emergency services, and cellular signals.
Conductive Graphene Filament is ideal for designing EMI/RF shields used in highly customized items.
High-Strength mechanical and functional parts
Because Conductive Graphene Filament is mechanically stronger than ABS and PLA, it can be used to 3D print functional parts such as: hooks, hand-tools, and parts which require tooling, including drilling.
When you combine the incredible properties of graphene with the inherent advantages of 3D printing, it’s easy to see why Graphene 3D Lab has doubled production capacity to meet demand.
Now Entering China, Australia, Japan, Europe…
In news announced this morning, Graphene 3D Lab is now expanding their distribution network with Polymaker which has sales and distribution locations in China, Europe, Australia, Japan, and the U.S.
Polymaker President, Dr. Xiaofan Luo noted that
“Polymaker’s customers tend to push the boundaries of 3D printing and are always looking for the next innovation to use in their 3D printing projects. The Graphene 3D functional filaments are a natural complement for our customers and for our existing filaments”
As a long time investor in the 3D printing space, I believe Graphene 3D Lab is the best 3D printing related stock to buy at current prices. I look forward to seeing the company’s revenue growth ramp strongly in coming quarters, as well as what I believe will be future partnerships, collaborations, and joint ventures to come.
