From material to component with system
Materials research provides answers to current questions in the fields of energy, health, mobility, information and communication technologies, construction and housing. Modern lightweight construction materials save costs and energy, ceramic micro fuel cells supply electronic devices, and new materials made from renewable resources help to protect the environment.
In the field of additive manufacturing, the institutes of the Competence Field focus on the development of new materials, technology-specific material adaptation and production as well as the generation of desired product properties with the following materials:
- metals: steels, titanium and aluminum
- ceramics: oxides, carbides, silicates and bioactive ceramics
- Plastics: polymers and thermoplastic materials
In addition, the Fraunhofer Competence Field Additive Manufacturing offers you individually adapted materials for your applications, individual processes and entire process chains - also considering conventional technologies.
