Strategy project “AGENT-3D” is accelerating
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden leads a consortium of more than 90 partners with the goal to establish additive-generative manufacturing as a key technology in Germany. In collaboration with other Fraunhofer institutes, the Fraunhofer IWS completed an initial strategy project in 2015. Now the first group of technology projects are being launched. Thanks to funding from the federal and the State of Saxony governments in form of the EFFI II investment project, the IWS was able to substantially expand its equipment resources for additive manufacturing. IWS researchers now have the option to use powder bed based additive manufacturing processes to fabricate complicated components with special functionalities. The latest results and knowledge will be presented at the second International Symposium “Additive Manufacturing” ISAM in Dresden.
