We further develop manufacturing processes revolving around additive manufacturing for various industry sectors and product groups.
This includes additive processes themselves, such as powder- or wire-based laser clad welding, but also subtractive processes like milling, turning, cutting and polishing as a part of pre- or post-processing as well as hybrid processes using both. Special additive processes like tape laying or two-photon polymerization - on micro level - complement the technology range of the Fraunhofer IPT.
We develop customer-oriented processing strategies and technologies - from high-gloss surface finish, through the processing of functional surfaces to the removal of support segments. The desired quality is ensured by extensive optical and tactile metrology.
