The AProLAM Project
In April 2015, the project "AProLAM" - Advanced Alloys and Process Design for Laser Additive Manufacturing of Metals was started, funded by the strategic cooperation between the Max-Planck-Society and the Fraunhofer-Society. In this project, the two partners Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPIE) and Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) are working together on the development of alloys for the LAM process and at the same time on the adaptation of the LAM process for the synthesis of new alloys. The complementary expertise of the project partners is illustrated below.
In the scope of the AProLAM project, several sub-projects are carried out at MPIE. They are listed below.
