Advanced Processing and Additive Manufacturing

Welcome to the Advanced Metals Processing & Additive Manufacturing group. Our goal is the development, processing and characterization of advanced metallic materials and metal-based composites by combining modeling and simulation with sophisticated experiments. A special emphasize is on the development of novel or modified alloys for laser-based additive manufacturing processes. The main research activities include:
