The Fraunhofer Additive Manufacturing Alliance integrates eighteen Fraunhofer institutes across Germany, which depending on their main focus, deal with subjects concerning additive manufacturing and represent the entire process chain. This includes the development, application and implementation of additive production processes as well as associated materials.

Algorithms for liver surgery – performing operations more safely worldwide

Four complex, interwoven vascular systems pass through the liver. Surgically removing tumors is therefore often a great challenge. The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS has developed algorithms that analyze patients‘ imaging data and calculate surgical risks. This makes liver cancer surgery safer and easier to plan.

Improved efficiency of aircraft engines

The Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS has succeeded in increasing the stability of those aircraft engine parts which are subject to stress due to temperature. The IWS process helps to reduce kerosene consumption as well as CO2 emissions. In combination with further measures, significant cost savings result during flight operations. The research project was developed in close cooperation with the engine specialist Rolls-Royce. The first engines with the new technology are already in use.

Free-form: quality leap in optical systems

Optical free-form systems enable new applications with an extremely compact design. Due to the complex technology involved, the production of appropriate solutions was previously impossible or too expensive. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF has further developed the technology to market maturity. Through collaboration with partners, a comprehensive technology platform has been created.
