Additive Manufacturing: Development and Optimisation of Materials,Processes and Design

For over 50 years, the fem has been investigating and optimising the anodisation of light metals to increase sustainability. Anodisation creates columnar nanocontainers in the substrate material that can be filled purposefully and customised. Particle incorporation leads to functional surfaces that neutralise pathogens or filter out pollutants from the air.

„Leistungsfähige und innovative Legierungen und Werkstoffe sind meine Leidenschaft.“

Am fem wird die Technologie der additiven Fertigung für metallische Werkstoffe intensiv erforscht. Die als Pulver vorliegenden Werkstoffe – Partikelgröße je nach Material 5 bis 40 μm – werden als 15 bis 25 μm dünne Schicht auf eine Bauplatte aufgetragen und dann einem 3D-Modell gemäß selektiv gefertigt.
