Additive Manufacturing Laboratory

  • Production of 3-dimensional structures and components through layer by layer material deposition

  • Direct Energy Deposition with standard and special wires (Wire-AM)


Advantages of Wire-AM

  • Shortening of production and production development cycles
  • Reduction of raw material
  • Construction of complex component geometries
  • Prototypes for die cast components
