Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

Additively manufactured clamping structures improve adhesion and joining processes

The turn from traditional “monolythic” components, made of one single material, to hybride constructions made of atypical materials implies great challenges. Modern joining processes must be able to join most diversified materials in a robust and durable manner. The scientists of the IWS Dresden favour clamping structures for transition joints between metal, ceramics or plastic material. The tailored micro structures enable a later application of mechanically highly resistant joints between the parts to be connected.
