What is it about?

In the flag ship project Addmanu the chair researches the thermal and rheological properties of the filaments for 3D printing and correlations between these properties and the printed parts should be found. With the optimized process parameters the quality of the printed parts should be increased. With the project partner Hage alternative feeding devices should be developed.

Project name: Stärkung der österreichischen Wertchöpfungsketten für generative Fertigung in der industriellen Produktion

Short name: AddManu
