The working group Process Technology analyses powder technology manufacturing processes, starting from the powder up to the component. The research focus lies on the understanding of the effects of process parameters or different manufacturing processes on the microstructure, the mechanical properties and the reliability of components. The range of materials includes metallic and ceramic materials as well as composites.


Running projects:


Improvement of efficiency in the LPBF process and expansion of the processable powder materials by means of a vibration-excited powder spreading tool

Process stability and component design in the binder jetting process

Microstructure simulation of reactive air brazing

Configuration of specific components properties by processing AM powder mixtures

Fabrication of Press Hardening Tools by Laser Powder Bed Fusion

Customized wear-resistant composite components through additive manufacturing and hot isostatic pressing

Influence of the initial porosity on the hot isostatic pressing of powder bed fused material

Development of new high-speed steels for additive manufacturing by LPBF
