Next Generation Additive Manufacturing

futureAM - Next Generation Additive Manufacturing

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has created futureAM to systematically and continuously develop the additive manufacturing (AM) of metallic components. For this purpose, six institutes – all with a wealth of experience in the field of additive manufacturing – have entered into a strategic project partnership:

This partnership has set itself two goals:

1. Establish a comprehensive cooperation platform for the highly integrated cooperation and use of the decentrally distributed resources of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in the field of AM.

2. Create the technological prerequisites to increase scalability, productivity and quality of AM processes in a way relevant to praxis for the production of tailor-made metal components.
