Telrad engineering is an innovative technology which uses 3D printed materials to create ultra-strong electrical wiring and cables.
The process is used to produce “super-strength” wires which are more than five times stronger than normal copper wire.
The technique, first used in Japan, has been developed by a group of Chinese researchers and is also being applied to the construction of a nuclear power plant in China.
The new method is similar to the way a typical steel wire is cut, but is made from a material that is extremely resistant to rusting and corrosion, said Guo Jinyi, a Telrad engineer at the University of Technology Sydney.
“We have designed a way to make the wires so strong that they are very flexible and flexible enough to be used in the construction industry,” Mr Guo told Al Jazeera.
“It’s like having a steel wire, but we have developed a super-strength wire which is much stronger than steel.”
The company says the technology can be used to make flexible, flexible cables which are up to 25 times stronger.
“This is a very significant advancement in the development of new technologies and is an indication of our commitment to a sustainable future,” Telrad CEO and president Jia Wang said.
“This is the first time we have created a super strength cable in this manner,” he added.
Telrad is also working on a new type of super-strong wire for mobile phones and drones.
With the development, the telrad team is looking to make a much larger quantity of superstrong wires, which would be needed for future power plants.
In the future, telrad engineers hope to use the technology to build solar power plants, a type of battery that is used for renewable energy.
Mr Guo said the technology could be used for the manufacture of the batteries used in drones, as well as in other industries.
“The main use case is for power generation and for other applications, for instance, we can use it for solar power,” he said.
While telrad is a relatively new company, it has been working with telrad’s former co-founder, Li Shuiyan, to build a similar technology in the United States.
According to the Telrad website, it is a partnership between Telrad and a number of American universities and research institutions.
