Don’t miss Fraunhofer IFAM’s sinter-based Additive Manufacturing workshop

August 22, 2019

There’s still time to register for Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technologies and Advanced Manufacturing (IFAM)’s workshop on Sinter-Based Additive Manufacturing, which will take place at its facility in Bremen, Germany, from September 18–19, 2019. 

The workshop will discuss the challenges and opportunities for serial production using Binder Jet Additive Manufacturing and metal Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). The programme will also feature presentations of current results from applied research on Binder Jetting and FFF, and a panel discussion on ‘Future expectations for industrialisation of sinter-based Additive Manufacturing.’ 

The Workshop Programme includes the following presentation:

  • Introduction to sinter-based Additive Manufacturing processes
    Frank Petzoldt, Fraunhofer IFAM 
  • A technology outlook on Metal Binder Jetting
    Rick Lucas, The ExOne Company 
  • Metal Binder Jetting process chain considerations
