Additive manufacturing of carbide machining tools

Tungsten carbide-cobalt is an excellent material for cutting tools as it is extremely heat- and wear-resistant. In the new research project “Additive Manufacturing of Machining Tools out of WC-Co – AM of WC-Co”, scientists from the Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering IWM and the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of RWTH Aachen University as well as from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT are now investigating how Laser Powder Bed Fusion can be used to process this material. It aims to additively produce cutting tools that achieve longer tool life thanks to complex cooling geometries.

Putting quantum bits into the fiber optic network: Launching the QFC-4-1QID project

Transporting quantum information over long distances with glass fibers and paving the way for the quantum Internet: With this goal in mind, the Dutch research center QuTech and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT launched the ICON project QFC-4-1QID on September 1, 2019. In this long-term strategic partnership between the research institutions, the scientists will be developing quantum frequency converters that will connect quantum processors to fiber optic networks. The new technology will be used in the world's first quantum Internet demonstrator in 2022.

Fraunhofer lighthouse project futureAM at formnext: Metal AM on the verge of a breakthrough

In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project “futureAM – Next Generation Additive Manufacturing,” an alliance of six Fraunhofer institutes shall accelerate 3D printing with metal powder by at least a factor of ten. The first tangible results prove that this is not a dream of the future. The futureAM team will be presenting these results at the joint Fraunhofer booth D51 in Hall 11 during formnext from November 19 to 22, 2019 in Frankfurt am Main.
