3D Printing Ten Times Faster 3D Printing of Metal Components


The Fraunhofer lead project Future AM aims to accelerate the additive production of metal components by at least a factor of 10.


Six Fraunhofer Institutes have joined forces to deliver tangible results at Formnext 2019. As part of Future AM, the scientists at the Fraunhofer ILT have developed a machine concept for LPBF of large metal components. The result: a large component for the aerospace industry.


The Fraunhofer Future AM lead project was launched in November 2017. To this end, six Fraunhofer Institutes have joined forces to take a holistic look at the digital and physical added value – from order entry to the finished metallic 3D printing component and to venture into a new technology generation of additive manufacturing. The following Fraunhofer Institutes are participating in this project: Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Aachen (project coordination) Fraunhofer Institution for Additive Production Technologies IAPT, Hamburg Fraunhofer Institute […]
