    The increasing industrial relevance of laser beam melting (LPBF) for the production of metallic components has not only led to new developments in recent years, but has also revealed limitations. In order to investigate the transferability of electrophotographic powder application to the LBM process, the PHOTOAM project is investigating the process phases sequentially. In this way, essential process knowledge is developed, a system implementation is prepared and the development of the potential for additive manufacturing is driven forward.

    The aim of this research project is to develop a methodological toolkit for the selection and implementation of use case-specific digital assistance systems in multi-variant production and assembly. This toolkit is intended to enable companies to select and introduce the optimum assistance system for their specific application using a structured process.

    Customers now expect greater customization and configuration options for their products while at the same time demanding higher quality. In contrast to previous configuration solutions, InnoCyFer allows customers to intervene in the product development process and incorporate their own product ideas with the help of flexible manufacturing systems. InnoCyFer combines such systems and intelligent objects as a cyber-physical manufacturing system.

  • Titelbild, Kachel, Icon zum Thema Multimaterial

    The MULTISURV research project investigated methods of process monitoring in multi-material processing in collaboration with the Augsburg Multi-Material Center. Examples of this are powder bed monitoring and quality control of solidified coatings, both using active thermography. Another area is the spectroscopic analysis of process emissions.

    Ziel des Projekts HYBDED ist die Implementierung mechatronischer Komponenten in ein kaltgasgespritztes Bauteil mittels RFID-Tag, wodurch eine hohe Auftragsrate und damit kurze Fertigungszeiten ermöglicht werden. Mit der Integration von Sensoren in Bauteile können Daten an bisher nicht oder nur sehr schwer zugänglichen Positionen erfasst werden.

    Over the past three years, the joint project SynDiQuAss has been working on the integration of digitalisation, assistance systems and quality assurance into a system that networks workplaces, factory planning and quality data in order to make everyday work easier and more advanced. Fraunhofer IGCV and other project partners have received funding in the amount of 1.7 million euros for this research since 2017.
