Fraunhofer IWS to hold course on Hybrid Materials and Additive Manufacturing Processes

September 4, 2019

The Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS) will host the 2nd Hybrid Materials and Additive Manufacturing Processes (HyMaPro) Workshop on December 11–12, 2019, at the Fraunhofer Institute Center in Dresden, Germany. The workshop aims to provide information on AM technologies for metal and ceramic components by means of hybrid materials.

The course will look at CAE-based virtual design, and the structural and functional optimisation of AM parts, to AM devices for the production of multi-material components. Practical sessions and guided tours will offer attendees hands-on experience of multi-material AM, while a programme of plenary sessions and discussions will offer scientists and engineers a platform to discuss their latest R&D results in the field.

Further information and details of how to register for HyMaPro 2019 are available via the event website.
