Process engineering and materials development for application-adapted powders for additive production
The application spectrum of powders is wide: It ranges from the direct use of powders in chemical processes and formulations, soldering and welding, techniques for the production of layer structures (thermal spraying, PVD, screen printing) to component production, sintering techniques and generative processes, e.g. selective laser melting (SLS) or injection moulding (Powder Injection Molding PIM).
The innovation potential for powders in a wide variety of applications is high. Especially in the development and specification of powders for additive manufacturing there are still numerous tasks to be solved.
Fraunhofer UMSICHT in Sulzbach-Rosenberg can retrospect on 25 years of experience in powder metallurgy and offers a wide range of products for the development of powders and their production technology with specially developed plant and process engineering.
