Henssen, Anne (author)
With growing concern over our reliance on non-renewable resources and the environmental impact of conventional manufacturing, the quest for sustainable materials and production processes has intensified. This pursuit has extended to the field of additive manufacturing, where bio-materials have emerged as promising alternatives, aiming to reduce...

Each year, 5.9 million tonnes of tea is consumed worldwide. However, this large consumption of tea also leads to large amounts of tea waste. Approximately 90% of steeped tea is being thrown away. This waste leads to problems such as environmental pollution. In order to combat this issue, Tea Clay was previously developed as a material made from...

In medical applications such as medical endovascular catheters, adaptable and morphing devices capable of changing shape and properties become important. These devices allow for safer therapeutic and diagnostic procedures by reducing time to reach target vessels and organs, trauma to the vessel wall and physical stress on the body while...

Suction grippers have the advantage to handle many different types and sizes of items, without being restricted by the dimensions of clamps to enclose an object and to handle objects more delicately. <br/>However, the challenge of attaching these grippers to irregularly-shaped and rough surfaces remains a persistent issue. Despite advancements...

This graduation report describes the design of a new suitable menstruation product for Beppy that collects blood, is reusable, has a similar (deployable) size and function as a tampon, and which is perceived as less intimidating to insert and extract than a menstrual cup. The new design, the Beppy Clover, is made from silicone and has Nitinol,...

While Additive Manufacturing is famed for its ability to create complex geometries, sustainability of the technologies is given less attention. Due to the need to melt filament and heat up the printbed, FDM requires a considerable amount of energy. On top of that, valuable and non-renewable resources are used for the production of the commonly...
