During the ongoing conversions in the laboratory, delivery, installation and commissioning of the 3D metal printer could be carried out as planned at the end of October. The additive manufacturing machine, an AM400 from Renishaw, which was put out to tender throughout Europe as part of the "Resource Efficient Rapid Prototyping" (RERAP) research project, is being financed with support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). In the manufacturing process, metal powder is welded on layer by layer using selective laser melting and the workpiece is assembled. This innovative manufacturing principle offers various advantages and special features over conventional manufacturing processes. Together with its cooperation partners, the IBT will conduct research into the resource- and energy-efficient production of metal components.
The commissioning therefore took place in time before the official opening of the laboratory on the "Day of Generative Manufacturing", which will take place on 14.11.2019 from 10:00-13:00 with representatives from industry and politics. Further information about the opening event as well as the possibility to register can be found at: Day of generative manufacturing.
