Advanced Additive Manufacturing for your innovations – Laser Powder Bed Fusion
In industry, additive laser processes are being applied in a continuously broadening spectrum. Since the mid-1990s, Fraunhofer ILT has been pushing additive manufacturing (AM) forward - e.g. with the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) process.
LPBF makes it possible to manufacture complex functional components in a resource-efficient and economical way. Since it has high geometric flexibility in the production of metallic components, the process offers a number of advantages compared to conventional manufacturing techniques and is suitable for applications in various industries, such as turbo machinery, aerospace, automotive and medical technology. Fraunhofer ILT focuses on developing innovative geometry-adapted exposure concepts and systems engineering as well as function-adapted application components and their industrial process chains.
