November 2, 2018

Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS) and Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS) are to hold a workshop on Hybrid Materials and Additive Manufacturing Processes (HyMaPro) at the Fraunhofer Institute Center in Dresden, Germany, November 29–30, 2018.

The 1st HyMaPro workshop will aim to provide information on Additive Manufacturing technologies for metallic and ceramic components and material hybrids, and to give insight into hybrid processes.

The workshop will incorporate individually planned guided laboratory tours with the opportunity to view AM systems for multi-material approaches in operation, as well as plenary sessions and discussions which will give scientists and engineers the opportunity to discuss the latest research and development in the field of material hybrids and AM.

Every participant will have the opportunity to attend seven out of the twelve practical insight sessions on offer during the workshop, focusing on AM devices for metallic (at Fraunhofer IWS) or ceramic (at Fraunhofer IKTS) materials, with topics including:


Metal AM

  • CAD/CAM topology
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Aerosol and dispense jetting
  • Laser metal deposition
  • Hybrid manufacturing
  • Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion
  • Powder processing
  • Post-processing – thermoanalysis


Ceramic AM

  • Powder processing
  • Post-processing – thermoanalysis
  • CerAM thermoplastic 3D printing
  • CerAM Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)
  • CerAM Binder Jetting
  • Lithography-based ceramic manufacturing


Throughout the technical programme, a number of key topics will be addressed, including an outlook on the AM of metal and ceramic components, a discussion of the CAD/CAM processing chain for metal AM, a look at characterisation and digitalisation, the handling of big data and machine learning, and more.

Workshop registration will close on November 22, 2018. Further information on how to register is available via the event website.
