Process technology for solid metallic glasses based on platinum for jewellery and watches

The project focuses on process development for fine and die casting. The applicability of conventional casting simulations will be tested to support the processes on the glass melts. Investment casting is based on an investment-based process and therefore poses the greatest challenge in terms of cooling rates. The aim is to work out the optimal process parameters.

Additive manufacturing of platinum alloys by means of selective laser melting.

In this project, the optimisation of the processing of platinum alloys by means of selective laser melting. The process has particular advantages compared to the challenges and problems of investment casting. The production of platinum alloy components for various applications was demonstrated. The research focused on the influence of the alloy composition.
