Meet Lomiko and Learn About Graphene and 3D Printing at the World Outlook Conference

(Nanowerk News) Lomiko Metals Inc. invite investors to learn about 3d printing at the World Outlook Conference. Lomiko partner Graphene 3D Lab has reached a significant milestone by filing a provisional patent application for the use of graphene-enhanced material, along with other materials, in 3D Printing. 3D printing or additive manufacturing is the process of creating a three-dimensional, solid object from a digital file, of virtually any shape. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, whereas successive layers of material are laid down and create different shapes.
A few months ago, legendary analyst Jim Dines repeated his prediction that 3D printing is the next really big thing for investors. This year's conference will give you a chance to see it in action. 3D printing expert John Biehler will demonstrate 3D printers that you can use in your own home to manufacture a variety of items. John will talk about the economic and social economics of this revolution, impacting not just traditional manufacturing and retailing but also regenerative medicine and industrial design.
"We are unequivocal in stating that investors must get familiar with these areas. The World Outlook Financial Conference is your chance to not only hear renowned analysts like Martin Armstrong, Mark Lebovit, Peter Grandich and to get Ryan Irvine's 2014 World Outlook Small Cap Portfolio. It is also an opportunity to get familiar with the most important investment opportunities of the next generation", Nina Parente, World Outlook Conference Organizer.

"Lomiko will provide graphite to Graphene 3D Lab as the exclusive supplier," stated Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals. "Novel materials based on graphene open new markets for natural graphite; these new markets are expanding at an extraordinary rate. We are happy to participate in the development of this disruptive technology."
On September 17, 2013, Lomiko and Graphene Labs reported that in the first step of the conversion process of graphite to graphene, natural graphite flakes were oxidized and turned into Graphene Oxide ("GO") by a modified Hummer's method. The properties of graphene, including its high conductivity, mechanical strength, and high specific surface area, make it an ideal electrode material.
Adding graphene to polymers which are conventionally used in 3D printing improves the properties of the polymer in many different ways; it improves the polymers mechanical strength as well as its electrical and thermal conductivity. The method described in the provisional patent application allows consumers to use the polymer, infused with graphene, together with conventional polymers in the same printing process, thereby fabricating functional electronic devices using 3D printing.
New developments in 3D printing will allow for the creation of products with different components, such as printed electronic circuits, sensors, or batteries to be manufactured. 3D Printing is a new and promising manufacturing technology that has garnered much interest, growing from uses in prototyping to everyday products. Today, it is a billion dollar industry growing at a brisk pace.
