Application Center Additive Manufacturing

Expanding knowledge layer by layer

The special features of Additive Manufacturing require to rethink all business units, from product development up to sales. The empirical and professional knowledge you need for restructuring, though, is often hard to obtain.

In order to support companies that are interested in Additive Manufacturing the Application Center Additive Manufacturing has been initiated by the Institute of Photonic Technologies (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg) together with the Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH in 2018.

The facility provides:

  • Experts in the field of Additive Manufacturing who perform practice-oriented seminars
  • Proportionate use of an efficient laser melting machine (SLM 280)
  • Know-how and infrastructure of two established research facilities
  • Possibility for networking in the field of Additive Manufacturing

With this, the Application Center Additive Manufacturing makes a decisive contribution to develop an extensive knowledge base in your company. As a result, an appraisal of the technology and an effective use of the numerous advantages of Additive Manufacturing for your own production processes will be enabled.
