Under the direction of Prof. Wudy, research activities of the Professorship of Laser-based Additive Manufacturing will cover a wide range of topics along the entire process chain of the manufacturing of plastics, metals and hybrid materials: From material development to provision of new process strategies, all the way up to automation solutions and quality control. This holistic approach will help to implement innovative technologies in the industrial environment.
The research areas of the Professorship of Laser-based Additive Manufacturing are divided into fiveareas:
- Innovative Process Strategies
- Quality Assurance in PBF-LB/P
- Hybrid Additive Manufacturing
- Process Monitoring in PBF-LB/M
The professorship combines basic research with the application in order to shape the still young additive manufacturing environment together with national and international universities and industrial companies.
