The range of our service offer includes R&D research for the generative processes of laser buildup welding with wire and powder as well as the combination of laser buildup welding and milling.
Fraunhofer IWS scientists particularly focus their research into multi-scale developments of manufacturing processes, system technological solutions and on-site support for our customers. The broad spectrum is used to process appropriate materials according to customer’s requirements in a defect-free manner with consideration for aspects of economic efficiency, profitability and quality.
The individualized products are single components (starting with a quantity of one), small series, components from user-specific multi-material concepts as well as design modifications and repair of complex high-value components without size limits.
Another main aspect of our scientific research is the integration of printed electronic components for measuring value monitoring, temperature control or energy conversion into additive-manufactured 3D structures.
